He made the overtly obvious decision to sign Peyton Manning. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to do that, especially considering who his starting QB was before Manning came along.
Drafting Luck was a rather obvious desicion and having the number 1 left that QB in question with no choice in the matter. Shanahan had to work harder to get Griffin.
