    Well you could see that if you trade us AJ green.

    I really don't think you guys need a QB. The one you have is gonna be a good one.

    It's nice to hear someone say that. Andy improved in every category this year but I just found out he was sacked 22 more times than his rookie season. People here are banging on him pretty hard.

    People are gonna bang on him. Just ask Joe. They've been banging on him for 5 years. He has gotten much more love since this playoff run has begun. I like the way AD handles himself. He's a fighter, you can tell that, and if he keeps fighting he will get his props.

    Ozzie's $4 million/year mistake will cost a number of decent players.
    In a 2003 BBC poll that asked Brits to name the "Greatest American Ever", Mr. T came in fourth, behind ML King (3rd), Abe Lincoln (2nd) and Homer Simpson (1st).

    Really not a mistake. Had they did a deal like that it would have been renegotiated and then it would have cost even more, or we would have a pissed off QB who would be looking for the door.

    I kind of wonder if Rodgers would ever hold out. He signed an extension really early (in '08 or '09) I think and is ridiculously underpaid.

    I don't think it's this kind of automatic situation where if a QB goes a year thinking he's "underpaid" he's going to automatically hold out. First of all, holdouts are rare. That's why there's really very rarely more than one of them a year, if that, and what player has actually gotten a new contract out of holding out?

    Maurice Jones-Drew's holdout has cost him a huge amount of money. He basically wasted 2 years of his prime whining about his contract and now he's 2 years older at a position where age is kind of a problem. Vincent Jackson didn't get a new contract until San Diego made him play out his whole deal. And so on and so on...

    Worst case scenario would probably be the QB skipping offseason workouts but even that would be stupid. QBs get paid because they win and post good stats, how can you do that when you're sitting at home on your hands while your teammates get better? It's just not something that makes any sense.

    Does Joe strike you as the kind of guy who would sign a deal for 17 million a year, then hold out 2 years later because he decides he doesn't actually like the contract he signed? I just don't see that happening.

    He has all of the leverage anyway. Winning the SB would just be icing on the already tasty-delicious cake.


    Also, Clayton is speculating what Flacco "MIGHT" ask for...The Ravens were already interested in giving him close to $16-17 mill per year (rumored number was $96 mill over 6 years). So, it isn't a stretch to think that Flacco could see that number rise.


    I'd also like to remind everyone about the number of media pundits who claimed that Rice was looking to get an Adrian Peterson-esque deal.

    The reality is the media knows jack squat until it happens.

    “I’m told his camp believes he is playing better than Peyton Manning,” Rapoport said, referring to the NFL MVP favorite and future Hall of Famer, who pulls in $19.2 million a year. “Expect them to shoot higher than that.” It’s expected that the Ravens and Flacco will resume contract deliberations immediately after Sunday’s Super Bowl.

    Win on Sunday and we can talk, Joe. Otherwise 6/100 sounds more than fair.

    I saw this myself. Not sure what to make of it, but there IS the fact that Flacco did, you know, outplay Manning when they met head to head a few weeks ago. The same Manning who is watching the SB from his couch. He obviously hasn't done it at a sustained level, though.
