It will never approach 90 million as Wiliams won't see the last 2 years of his contract and Stewart's contract only goes to 42 million if we pick up the fifth year and he produces. The guaranteed money for both of them through 2013 is around 30 million and with what we paid in 2011 and additional salaries in 2012 and 2013 have averaged about 11-12 million per year. The cap hit for the two of them in 2013 will be significant even though the actually salary won't be. But when we have to pay the 9 million roster bonus for Stewart in 2014, we may part ways with Williams. So the whole premise of your argument is worse case scenario and not very likely to even come to pass. So how about not bitching for years about a scenario that won't happen like someone else we know.
Lol so let's wait 2 years and then we may not have to spend a lot of money at the RB position.
How'd trying to rationalize the Delhomme deal work out for you P55? Was it fun for you watching him throw ducks against us when we were playing Cleveland and paying him $12.7 million a little over a year and a half afterwards? I remember not liking this deal and being vocal about it. I also remember thinking the DeAngelo contract was absurd and lookie, he didn't even get 10 rushes a game for all his money in 2011.
I will bitch and moan and whatever you want to call it if I deduce that Hurney is spending the team's cap frivolously. The simple fact of the matter is that this over-investment in the running game is hurting our chances at improving the team in other areas. All this backlash from the people who support it mirrors boxer logic and is a bunch of manufactured arguments to cope with the simple fact that we're overspending there and everybody knows it. Yes, let's keep talking about this concept offense that dictates play selection, where you run the ball in the last 5 minutes of the game against Aaron Rodgers because you think you have the personnel to do it. Not because you're down by 14, the game situation has nothing to do with what we're calling here.
Or maybe let's come down to reality and figure out that if we fall behind by three scores (which is pretty plausible since we didn't do nearly enough to fix the defense) Ron Rivera isn't going to give two shits about how well we can run the ball.
