    Well, there's no way if I am the owner I am paying Cousins $34M if Tom Brady is earning $22M and the best quarterback in the division, Carson Wentz, is on a rookie deal for peanuts that will allow the Eagles to continue to add free agents and trades the next 2 years.

    Just because some dumb decisions are made by guys like McNair in Houston (Osweiler) and Bischiotti in Baltimore (Flacco) to pay franchise deals to players that are less than franchise performers doesn't mean I have to follow suit.

    Going back and thinking about a lot of these big contracts, the ones that tend to work out are the ones where a team, say Green Bay, already has a proven passer in Aaron Rodgers and they are merely resigning him to a long-term deal to keep his salary consistent with the trends in the market.

    Ditto for the deals several years ago for Drew Brees in New Orleans and Ben Roethlisberger in Pittsburgh.

    Where you see a guy get paid on the basis of strictly regular season stats or one 'hot' run in the playoffs, etc. you end up with the albatross contract like the one Ozzie Newsome has had to deal with in Baltimore for Joe Flacco. He hasn't been able to retain any of his higher tier veterans as they hit their walk years.

    Guys like Osemele end up going to the pro bowl for another club.

    Don't want to see that here.

    I think this weekend has been the first step in the market correction for QB’s I’ve been saying is due.

    Outside of New England it’s the coming back into vogue of the stingy defense, franchise running game and game manager quarterbacks.

    Dallas really helped to get this restarted with the big offensive line and Ezekiel Elliott blasting teams off the ball to allow a rookie passer in Dak Prescott to pick his spots to exploit the defense and not get exposed.

    Whoever he is, he's currently on the Vikings roster.

    Personally, I would put that one squarely on Mayor McCheese. Reid has always depended too much on his "script" and neglects in game adjustments to his detriment. To be fair, though, Marty Schottenheimer struggled just as much and with arguably better seasonal (non playoff) results. I agree that given the choice I would opt for regular season success over occasional brilliance every time.

    I agree, but I would hate to see the quandary this puts us in NEXT year when we face the same &*#$!% situation again. I am as big a KC supporter as anyone in this fanbase, but at this point I am beginning to see the writing on the wall. (Hey Ax, as my pappy would say, I'm a size 50 coat and a size 3 hat, so no affirmations please). Let the man get his mega riches, lets (SIGH) start anew with (SIGH) Colt, and hope like hell we can use the freed up monies to do something about the rest of the respective units.
