In the Starting Line-Up
Yes to all of those, except point number 2, the one I have zero control over. And oh my god at "wreck the Pats", such hyperbole with money in this board. Are the Bills going to be wrecked by Josh Allen? Are the Chiefs wrecked with Mahomes? Were the Colts wrecked by Peyton Manning's contract? It's the NFL, top tier Quarterbacks see every dime of their deals and they just continuously restructure to ease up on cap expenditure in exchange for getting cash up front. Brady did that for years. This fanbase has been so brainwashed by the idea that players just can't be properly compensated otherwise the franchise will explode. The Jets will field a team in 2023 with Aaron Rodgers under contract because, news flash, even though he'll get 59 million dollars next season his cap hit will only be 31 million. The cap goes up every single year, you can push the salary of great players into the future without compromising your structure. Cash is the limitation, not cap. And it ain't my cash.I agree with all of that. Mac does save $35M in '23 and '24, and $15M in '25. What was your point? 1. You think Lamar is a championship level QB? If yes, how do you restructure our cap to fit Lamar in 2023? 2. You think RK is going to sign a $250M guaranteed check to Lamar? 3. You want to give up our 2024 and 2025 1st round picks for Lamar and trade Mac? 4. If Lamar gets injured or does not work out, you are comfortable with a 6 year, $240M guaranteed contract that would wreck the Psts until 2029?
