Cam is not going to get a big deal...............he hasn't won anything.

Cam's big deal (and great for us) will be his third contract.


In your dreams.

It'll be 6 years at $90 million or greater.

Cam is not only the prototype of the new dual threat QB, he is the benchmark as to contracts as well. On the latter. Be thankful he's first, On the former, be thankful he's ours.

Sign Hardy next year. Then extend Cam the following. Sounds easy enough.

You only get to keep so many top level contracts nowadays. You have to have a strong core and Hardy with Cam need to be a part of that.

You have to have talent around your core to succeed. And that is exactly what Gettlemen brings. The ability to stock the lower level talent shelf with decent players. The more productive, but cheap, talent you have. The more money you have to deal with the top level talent.

The days of the mid level pay player is almost over. You are either top level, or lower level. The teams that draft well to replenish the talent pool are the ones who will be successful. You will have to replace those good players that don't warrant top level pay with young players ready to prove they are next in line. Perpetuate the growth.

That is what Gettlemen is working towards.

OK, I'm done. And GOOOOO CATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No......... he won't.


You're just not used to a QB like Cam.... not like Jake ever threw aspirin pellets like Cam does.

Had we been smart with the money for the big contracts that we signed, we would be in a totally different position right now.

As it is, we are using Cam's "cheap" years trying to get out of cap hell and dealing with a lame duck coach.

By the time this team is ready to compete, we will have to hamstring ourselves with a huge QB contract.

We are in a very strange place right now my friends.

4 years it looks like. Hopefully we have better drafts though.

All of this could have been avoided if we got rid of Hurney back in 2010. Yet it is funny. How it seems other teams can give eight players 50 million dollar contracts (ex: Eagles), yet they still have more cap room than us year in and year out.
