Russel Wilson has proven he can lead his team to a Super Bowl, that's a golden feather in his cap. Andrew Luck I go back and forth with because he's a terrific passer with "footballl IQ". Then you see him make 3 or 4 of the stupidest plays imaginable that either put his team in a hole or outright cost them the game.
I don't really agree with the Igo logic that we should pay Cam more because our offensive personnel is so bad. In fact that would never cross my mind when I come up with a number. You negotiate with Cam and get the most team friendly deal you can. If the deal is the opposite of team friendly you tell him to play on the franchise number and accept he may leave.
There has been speculation Russel Wilson may have a fully garaunteed contract with a reasonable cap figure. I've always wondered if we could do this with cam. Say 5 years 70 million garaunteed? That's 14 million annually to him with plenty of cap space to get his help. Even give him an opt out after 4 years.
I've never understood why coordinators are so quick to leave for head coach openings. You would think that if they're successful in a system with a good team they would want some longevity and job security. Aren't the majority of new hires failures?
Head Coaching contracts are guaranteed money. They can make more on a rookie head coaching contract than 10 years of coordinating. On top of that there are only so many jobs out there. You hear about guys declining to interview with dysfunctional franchises all the time but ultimately you have to take risks.
I see your point. Why ruin your name by taking a job with the Browns or Raiders? But these guys all think highly of themselves and the money is good.
Half of you guys have a 4 year memory. Others don't know what starter means.
I don't have time to go over everything but names like Chris Weinke, Darrin Hambrick, Scott Greene, Matt Willig, Lamar Smith, Isaac Byrd, Shayne Graham, Michael Gaines, Colin Branch all deserve consideration. How about this, Jermaine Wiggins started 11 games at TE for us one year with 8 catches.
There is no reason for Rae Carruth to be on anyone's list because the reasoning has nothing to do with football. "Worst Starter" suggests they were starting without that talent required to start. Carruth had the talent and some production. He was just a despicable human being.
I can't stand Blount. He's the perfect example of a thug athlete getting 4th and 5th chances because they have talent. He got arrested for possession and Mike Tomlin wants to punish him by playing him...come on. He got thrown out of college football and gets reinstated for good behavior. I have no respect for that.
Charlotte Night Clubs will brace for decreased revenue.
Voth got me, he got me to read his fantasy blog post about an "IF" that would never actually happen. If stipulation 1 came true, stipulation 3 becomes asinine.
The NFL should give the Panthers their cap space back. The NFL is the one that caved to pressure. Hardy was prepared to fulfill his obligation to play for the Panthers and if stipulation 1 comes true, he did nothing to warrant the 15 game paid suspension he received.
