    On what basis do you conclude this?

    How much longer do you think Bud will be running the organization?

    Except we do get something out of it. We get CJ for longer with minimal cap impact. The ability to sign more,better players for the next few seasons.

    You sound like you want C.J. to get hurt.

    You pay the man and you get a title... Why don't you want this???

    Nobody wants CJ to get hurt but RBs DO go down. CJ went down when the team needed him most.
    Either way he will get new money this season or next.

    Next.

    No. Moss was the example of someone who played THREE Pro Bowl seasons before getting a new deal which made him the highest-paid WR in the history of the game.

    He didn't threaten to hold out after his second season. No player, as far as I know, demanded a new contract after only their second season.

    Alex, the basis for pretty much all of those statements at the top of the page is that Bud isn't just an endless money hole. 30-40 million is a lot of money, even for someone making far more than that. The cap is a limiting device, but what we're seeing this year is that the owners clearly have their own limits. They're not spending $225 million to field a team to win a super bowl. At some point, money adds up. Since we aren't a heavy spending franchise anyway, big contracts effect us more than others.

    Yes, Bud won't be around forever, but the principle holds true for any owner. Also, it's staying in the family, and you can bet that Ken Adams has a say, or is at least at the table, for major financial decisions. He sees how the business is run.


    The rich stay rich by not taking huge risks.

    Ha!

    Oh, we have C.J., so we get a title? It's that easy? Why didn't we get one his rookie year? Why didn't we get one this past year, when he had what's likely to be his most productive season?

    That's right, because football is a team sport that isn't in any way all about one player. The team is bigger than C.J. Huh. Funny how that works.

    Everyone wants a title. EVERYONE. You can't buy a title. Check with Jones and Snyder.

    You pay the man, and you get... a shot at the title. That's what it means to be a risk. Nothing is guaranteed.

    We now have C.J. at his best with Vince at his best. That's going to be deadly for the teams in their way. I'll bet on them making the payoffs and doing major damage to who ever.

    C.J. has never gone down, what you mean to say is he was taken down by a group of cheating thugs.

    The 2007 Pats had Brady at his best and Moss at his best. AND they were cheating. Still didn't win the Superbowl.

    Nothing is a sure thing. Football is a team sport.

    It doesn't really make a difference. If he can't play, he can't help us.
