Why is Jordan Gross our highest paid player?

^^Its not that I don't agree. The timing and wording in this thread is, um, interesting. Especially with your posting history.

The game was yesterday and I'm wondering why this stood out to you as one of the biggest issues from it and worthy of a thread.

Well, one thing is for sure.

Gross sure as hell didn't earn his money last night.

But, no one on that team did. Complete failure from everyone on the team and the coaches last night.

BUT, We Have 97 Consecutive Sellouts!!!

That's what really important!

i'm inclined to agree that our entire o-line has not been held accountable as they should have been in our two losses. gross figures to be at the top of the accountability list in that department. with that same logic i'd think CJ would be in the same boat. as much as people hate to hear it, fox had our trenches ready to go.

Jordan Gross is our "leader", but fans like James dont expect him to lead, just show up. And imply you're a racist if you question his salary. Trust, if we throw big money at Cam he will be expected to live up to it. I just dont agree with a washed up LT being our highest paid player. We have other guys on our squad who perform better and have done more.

I dont think Ive ever witnessed a fan of an opposing team rave about how great our LT is and how cheap we got him for.

We overpaid him, we paid him as an elite LT and his natural position IMO is on the Right side.

Do you think that Williams is overpaid?

How about Johnson?

How about Stew?

How about Anderson?

How about Beason?

Have you not paid attention to what Hurney does?

He overpays "his" guys.

I don't like it at all, but overpaying Gross is much better for the team than what we did for Davis, Williams, Anderson, and Johnson.

Yes I do think those guys are overpaid and if they were THE highest paid on our team I'd have a problem with it too.

Just wait a year and we will have another mediocre player as our highest paid player. That should make you feel better.

That would be Charles Johnson.

Because Cam is still on his rookie contract. Cam will be the highest paid player on the roster in a couple of years. If he gets what he's worth, he'll be the highest paid in the league. Pay That Man!

Not even looking at last night, if we make Cam the highest player in the league we are the worst FO in the NFL. He doesn't deserve more than Rodgers, Brees, and Brady. He'll be the highest on the team though that's for sure.

Offensive lineman don't get much attention when they play poorly or well. It's not a glamor position. He signed his contract in 2009 after an exceptional season. Gross's style isn't designed for the college game. Add a real football coach and maybe we'll get more out of our offensive line and running backs.

cam deserves as much as Ryan/Flacco. Not Arod/Brady/Brees
