OVER PAID.

He does not deserve to be paid more than either Manning, Brady, Rodgers or Brees.

[color=#333333][font=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][size=3]Capping a perfect postseason, the unassuming and unheralded Flacco completed 22-of-33 passes for 287 yards and three first-half touchdowns, earning Super Bowl MVP honors for leading the Ravens to a 34-31 victory over the[url="http://espn.go.com/nfl/team/_/name/sf/san-francisco-49ers"]San Francisco 49ers[/url].[/size][/font][/color]

[color=#333333][font=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][size=3]The 28-year-old Flacco, a fifth-year pro, threw for 22 touchdown passes and 10 interceptions in the regular season. He has thrown for 17,633 yards, 102 touchdowns and 52 interceptions in 80 career games.[/size][/font][/color][/quote]

Eh, next year some other QB will be the highest paid ever, then a new one the next year, and so on and so forth. Does he deserve to get paid more than any player ever? No, but that's just how inflation works.

Did Hurney find a new employer?

Remember way back to 2010...Jake Delhomme was the highest earning QB in the NFL

He picked a great time to have a great post-season. He had 100% of the leverage.

Gettleman doesn't seem like the type to be bullied into a crazy contract like that so hopefully we don't have too much to worry about.

This is probably Newsome's only big mistake of his GM career. He didn't pay Flacco in the offseason. Flacco went out and played great and won a Super Bowl. He had all the leverage. Newsome has to pay for it whether Flacco deserves that kind of money or not.

Honestly....and this may get some people butt hurt.....we will probably have to make him the highest paid QB to keep him here.

But these are a few reasons I am pondering...
1) he knew that he wasn't the panthers first choice in his draft (Luck)
2) his first impression of JR is was the guy who spear headed the players lockout
3) JR pulled him into his office on day 1 and told him not to get tattoos, etc... and who knows what other wacky things he said to him
4) the panthers are still a young, unaccomplished franchise (when comparing to 49ers, Steelers, Pats, Etc...)
5) Charlotte is a smaller market, with a horrible sports history
6) our inbred local media has proven that they cannot handle a Superstar in the city

These are just to name a few, go ahead and disagree with me, I don't care, it's the truth

I wonder if he gets a big check like golfers get or if he has to buy a forklift to carry his money around.

I understand the logic in rewarding the guy that brought you the championship but the highest paid player should be reserved for the ones that have the stats during the regular season and the postseason. Big Ben and Eli come to mind who should then be paid more than him.

I still do not see how someone who averages 20td passes a year, never thrown for 4k, and averages 60% is the highest paid when there's QBs that year after year throw for 4,500+, 35-45tds, and also win Super Bowls. Just doesn't add up.

They were better off franchising him and see if be can replicate the success. Now they're stuck with him whether or not he sucks for the remainder of his contract.

Because he preaches paying players what they're worth. Cam isn't worth that much money without hardware in the trophy case.
