Honestly u dont want every player to be All Pro because u cant pay them all. Finding + VALUE is the key. Boothe is + VALUE at 2 million a year at 4 he isnt. They just better not be stupid if he wants 2.5-2.75 just give it to him.
I have to admit that the right and intelligent thing to do for Boothe and his agent is to wait for FA to start and see his value in the open market then if Boothe really want to stay in Blue he will come back with Reese and try to match any offer he has on the table. Boothe is a very intelligent and bright guy and I'm sure he'll go this way. Boss and SS are banging their heads literally for not doing so.

of course not. but when the market sets the price on a player who is pretty much avg and maxed out potential wise, and its out of our range, I have no qualm with thanking the guy and moving on...which is what it sounds like JR is doing. I wasnt stating it to indicate every guy needs to be an all pro. i was stating it bc the fact he isnt all pro material imo means hes not someone who cant be replaced...thought that was obvious but i see how i coulda been confusing
Reese has taken care of Beatty and he won't do it again for a lineman. However, if he can get Boothe he should. Don't forget he can move over to center if we needed him to.
Never argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience!
