this certainly explains alot (especially why the redskins traded away 2 draft picks for RGIII and quickly bowed out of the manning running)
actually i think manning told the skins to stop calling...

Appearing on SportsCenter Thursday, ESPN 980 Washington's Chris Russell said he's "hearing" free agent Peyton Manning does not want to play for the Redskins and has already informed people in the building.

"A couple of different sources inside the organization have told me that Manning's camp made it pretty clear to Redskins officials he doesn't want to come here," said Russell. "... Unless that changes—and I'm taking my sources at their word—I don't think Manning's coming to D.C."
