I think there is no way Foles gets that much. Cousins was overpaid to save a franchise, they let 3 qbs walk to sign Cousins. Foles will get signed as a stopgap while a team reaches on a project. 

Alex Smith got $23.5M/year to come to Washington. Foles is five years younger and at least as good. Heck, it may be Washington that pays Foles that much.

So we're comparing one game to several seasons worth of data?

Over the last four years he completed 2/3 of his passes and had a 4.8% TD rate vs 2.0% INT rate -- on ~2300 dropbacks.

That's very good.  A healthy organization with a good team and intelligent play-calling can win with that.

I get that his contract seems high today, but two years from now it'll be blown out of the water.

And that's without even accounting for the increases in the salary cap.

Likely true. Further driving ticket prices out of reach for the average fan.

The NFL is a money-printing machine and it's entirely appropriate that the players who make it happen get some of the benefit from it. Certainly they deserve it more than the owners do.

The sad thing is with the sharp rise in QB pay is that good players do not get paid.

QBs like Cousins, Stafford, Flacco,Smith, are all getting 25 million a season for average QB play.   No other position pays a premium for average performance. In fact most highly paid player who don`t play at a high level are released...some even released that are playing well.

Every dollar these type of QBs are getting paid over their performance level comes out of another player on the teams pocket.  If an average qB is eating up cap space then the team has to have a number of players who are making the minimum.

It’s a concept that’s not even remotely hard to understand because it’s incredibly stupid and unrealistic. 

 

We we need a good plague.

:lmao:

I’m “not worth the time” = I’m too lazy to explain my smarmy comment because it’s an indefensible position that the work force should be entitled to more compensation than the owners of the organization that collectively bargains with its labor force. 

Do you often submit multiple posts to topics that aren’t worth the time? Seems like a silly way to spend the day.

Have an awesome day, Roboto.

Do owners risk permanent injury and take years off their expected life span? No, so players absolutely deserve these big contracts. They basically know the majority of them will be crippled, impaired, or die young. Its absolutely sacrificing their long term health.
