In the Starting Line-Up
So? How does QB salary correlate to winning and performance?
Some of the ****tiest QBs out there make way more than they should.
That means Bill should pay Tom what ****ty QBs make if he doesn't think he deserves it?
That makes a lot of sense.
Yes. If BB thinks Tom was worth $20m, then the only way that would make sense if he thinks ALL QBs are overpaid. Well in that case get ready for some crazy cheap/crappy QBs here and hope we can Nick Foles our way to a Championship (before Nick moved from $5m to $22m).
This is just not a strategy that makes sense. I wish I could agree with BB that QB is just another cog in the wheel and he can use his Patriots Way mantra to wing a Championship from a journeyman QB but I find it hard to believe when last 10 years winners include Mahomes, Brady, Wilson, P. Manning, Brees, Rodgers, all mega elite. Only medicore QBs were E. Manning and Flacco who were both being paid like top 10 QBs at that time so overpaid anyway.
What exactly is the strategy here. We're not going to Brad Johnson this. That era is gone.
Pats FO fcked up. Plain and simple. Brady was willing to pay for less but not peanuts.
