So Steinberg proposed an idea to Leaf that would change the course of NFL history: Leaf could alter the Colts coach's perception in such a way that the team would have no choice but to pass on him despite Irsay's potential persistence.
 
"'If you go to the combine,' I told Ryan, 'but fail to show up for a meeting with Mora, that should do it. Jim is a real prideful person who has a tendency to explode. I am not recommending you do this, but if you are desperate to go to San Diego, this is the way,'" Steinberg wrote.
Leaf sought the quarterback job in San Diego "because of the exceptional weather and the more laid-back lifestyle," Steinberg wrote.
 
"Ryan approved, but I first cleared the idea with Chargers general manager Bobby Beathard, lest San Diego also question my client's reliability," Steinberg wrote. "Beathard went along with the ruse. If he'd had a problem, Ryan would've shown up for his meeting with Mora."
