    Everyone is being overpaid!

    This is insane. Garcone and VJ robbed their new teams. This is bad for the NFL. Means we will only have to pay the same price when it's time to re-sign Cruz, Nicks, JPP, etc..

    Not good
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    In the midst of this losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-

    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, New England
    4-New York Giants!!!!!

    It's nothing new. It happens every year.
    Garçon's contract is a bit surprising but VJax's isn't.

    Overpaying for players builds fan excitment but when has it built a SB team?

    Finding "big name" talent before it is big name talent is what wins with a salery cap

    I sense a salsa dance somewhere in that.

    I also gotta give props to Ballard, Hynoski, Pascoe, etc to name a few...

    Plaxico Burress' contract seemed pretty big at the time (5 yrs/$25 mil) and he was instrumental in the Giants' XLII victory.

    Snyder, is a moron. His overpaying has got the Skins nowhere, but has helped screwup the NFL player compensation standards. MM is loving these signings!!!

    You should read the piece written by Mike Lombardi a couple days ago. Discusses how some top tier free agents get big money right away in free agency because their agents know just when to strike. Then there's a calm period when bargains are made.
