    I think you will be angry at Bud then....I think we are already well above that, and are going to go higher.

    Not saying that I agree with it either, but I see it coming. Strap in, this will get really stupid before it ends.

    You guys realize how contracts work right? Where a guy signs for say 4 years, 100mil (for instance) with 50-60 guaranteed, if he doesn't do what we are BRINGING HIM HERE to do, he won't get that full amount.

    Those numbers are essentially what he'd be paid if he won MVP and Super Bowl MVP while breaking records each year.

    Base yearly will be close to 15 with easy incentives etc. up to 20-22 mil.

    Then the extra 3-5 mil will be the big money incentives for getting us to playoffs, super bowl, winning SB, etc.

    this is isn't a "hey it's march 1st, have 25 million dollars this year peyton"

    it's "hey it's march first. here's 13 million. Do some more easy stuff you would do anyway, here's a few more million. win us games, here's more. win some playoff games, here's more. get us in the super bowl, here's more. win us the super bowl, here's more."

    It's hilarious reading the tweets and listening to the talking heads at ESPN and NFL Network.

    Yesterday was all Titans love. Today is all Broncos and 49ers.

    Steve Young said 49ers know they are the best team for Manning and thats why they will get him.

    Won't happen. Manning doesn't like the NFC and they don't have the money for him.

    The whole Wells thing has cooled off, Manning probably won't work out for us until Monday, and the focus has shifted to Den. and SF.

    ...yay. :sad2:

    According to a source, the parameters of the 5-year, $90 million deal Peyton Manning signed in August are simply the jumping-off point now.

    The Titans need to bail and FAST before we get sucked into Floyd Reese cap hell. MVP-era Peyton (without injuries) would have been worth it but now, he's just not. I hope you're all coming to that realization.

    Let's say McCourty, Griffin and Cook come in next year and DOMINATE...well, their contracts are up in 2013 and we couldn't possibly sign them with Manning's salary. Rob Bironas's contract is also up...

    THINK ABOUT THE FUTURE. It's name is Jake Locker.
