    There’s some truth to this and one of the reasons it’s always mentioned about Brady taking a “pay cut” to help build a team around him. I’d say that helped, if not the actual difference in winning vs not.

    I think THill has a rough contract for the team just by coincidence of the contract. I think he’s a capable QB, yes even enough to win the SB, the team just doesn’t go through him.
    I would have been absolutely fine extending THill for another 3 years but at a much lower rate and much smaller cap hit per year knowing that the goal is to find his replacement (on a rookie contract).

    but I also argue that this touches on the problem RBs have, probably other positions, maybe less vocal.

    QBs are eating up too much of the cap space. Argue all you want for importance (not you specifically) but whenever guys like Flacco negotiate a new contract as if they’re “the best” and increase the total cost of QBs everywhere, other positions feel that pain nevermind he never should have been paid as if he was the best.
    Christian Kirk’s contract last year set the market for WR. Why other WR cannot accept that Kirk was overpaid and that teams don’t negotiate like that is somewhat of a mystery to me.
    Unfortunately stupid teams like Jax actually F up things for every other team and while the players haven’t done this yet, they should be discussing with the NFLPA about how some positions are getting paid so much that other quality players are going unsigned in FA and/or just disappearing.
    RB is THE prime example. They’re not dead at 30, they just ask for reasonable contracts (mostly) for that much of a vet and often you can take a small step down in quality for HUGE amounts of money steps down.

    It's literally impossible to win a Super Bowl with someone like Foles

    Every starting QB has a rough contract, cost of doing business

    1/6th or more of the cap is just too much for one player. As far as I am concerned, I would agree with position caps as well. No single player should get more than 1/15th of the cap or something like that.

    I agree in some sort of system to level the money better between positions…. I would a proposal like that would easily pass in the CBA vote because their are way more other players than qbs and something like this would help the others

    The issue with those suggestions, which I also like, is that the current players are actively arguing against such a process. They are always fighting for the ability to get as much as you can individually.

    basically you would need QB to agree with RB that the RB are getting hosed by the QB.

    They did it with the outrageous rookie contracts years ago. I could see it being addressed again.

    Thought the real issue was vets vs guys never proving themselves. RB will rarely see the next contract and carry much of the load. I can see that position pendulum swing a bit. We paid Henry a handsome amount, but its rare for teams to do so, and he’s proven to be a generational talent.

    it would 100% be possible to pay players for snaps/production... 100%

    players do not want that

    you're welcome to continue to be content with mediocrity. i won't be.

    and I'm not switching teams just because it hurts your feelings that I'm calling a spade a spade.

    never did I say QB was the only problem but until we have a legit QB we will continue this cycle.

    wanting your qb to hit 4k yards in 2023 isn't exactly asking a lot.
