This is regarding Mario M.
Many of you are probably younger than me? In my personal life, I stayed with my Big Blue company because of loyalty, enjoyed what i was doing, and who i worked with. That was more important to me at the time than leaving for the quick buck money.
This is an interesting situation. What would you do?
Would you go for the money too? Although money doesn't buy you happiness, it surely helps you live your life with better "financial security", assuming of course your not foolish or stupid and piss it away on crap. An example would be ppl like say Allen Iverson who appears to have pissed his fortune away and is now broke.
I think it is more imortant to have a successful career playing or working with ppl that you get along with, trust, work well with and have success with. Besides, how many millions does a person need to live well, and get lap dances i guess?
However, MM not having the gift of good communication skills, he may need to take the money while he can get it. He definitely will never be an analyst. He is almost not understandable. All he says is "Yeah man". I'm sorry for being sarcastic!
Hey, he is a gifted player, although he frequently ran his routes bad. He needs to strike while the iron is hot and get whatever he can while he can get it.
Personally Id rather take less and stay with the Giants and be part of something special. He can have a better opportunity to win here and be successful or take the money and maybe not be as successful. Hey he can be successful else where, but i doubt it.
In all honesty, this is ok for the Giants. He was good and i sincerely thank him for his svc. But its ok if he goes. We will get compensation for him and there are MANY other WRs available in FA and its deep WR draft. Plus we have depth already on our team.
Bottom line is We have a cap problem so if he isnt happy with the offer than thank you bur good bye!
btw, I hope Canty, Diehl, and Jacobs can restructure their salaries too?
