    Don't expect Ric to change his thinking about Cutler. Not even if he takes us to a Super Bowl. Ric was the one who debated with me last spring or summer over McCown not being an NFL level QB period. You can debate it with him all you like MP but I've stopped because his stubbornness and his emotions overrule logic and common sense.

    Ric, still think McCown is less than an NFL capable starting QB? Lovie was willing to spend $10 mil to find out. :D

    It's easy to say I am not looking for 18M+ or whatever it was when you know you are not going to get it and claim that your getting less is to the tune of home town discount

    Says YOU. Since when did you become an expert NFL player agent? Once again even after I explained it you completely miss the point. Whether he'd get it or not is an unknown. You just THINK he wouldn't. Did any of us think Josh McCown would get a $10 mil deal? No.

    What I interpreted Marshall to say is that he was not looking for top money, not even gonna ask for it nor expect it. I believe he also said he'd play on one year deals until they kicked him to the curb. LOL I don't really believe he means that and they won't but he was simply making the point that this is now his NFL home and where he'd like to finish his career.

    That's what he said. The only manner in which he was comparing himself to any other top five WR was in what he expected to be paid and that was LESS. That's the ONLY important thing to derive from it. It has nothing to do with whose better. Now go fill up that glass. This is something to be pleased about not skeptical. If he changes his mind THEN you can be skeptical, but not now.

    :13_4_9[1]: Here, and while you at it fill mine up too.......please.

    LOL, I do understand frustration with his turnovers (have had it myself) and "Cutler fatigue syndrome". But his contract isn't killing us thanks to some really nifty work by Emery and Stein. It is a reasonable market value deal for a QB who may not be elite but is talented enough to win the whole enchilada with a good surrounding cast. And I see Emery assembling that right before our eyes.

    I'd rather have Jay, issues and all, than Stafford and Romo who seem to melt down every December. And it sure as hell beats trolling around for QB-trash in FA like teams have been doing lately with Sanchez and Schaub.

    In the world of sports you never take a player at face value especially with contacts not being guaranteed.

    Perhaps it's just my dislike of the term hometown discount and how it always gets thrown out. Players see others at their position getting paid (X) and while being good they know they will get significantly less than (X) on the market so they play up the fans saying they won't ask for (X) [all the while they know they wont get it] because they "like it here and will stay for less than the market rate." Then when they sign for (X-1) they can pound their chest and look as though they took a "home town discount" by leaving money on the table.

    To me it is an empty phrase to garner fan support.

    You guys should be ashamed of knocking Cutler's contract amount. The poor guy (and Kristin) don't make enough money to even afford immunization shots for their kids. He needs to check out Obamacare for help on this.

    I still think McCown is less than an NFL capable starting QB, which is why his career is what it was.

    IS soul talking shit? I thought I was ignored. Ask him how Jeremy Bates was going to fix the O for the Bears in 2012 b/c of how great he worked w/Cutler in Den. Or how Weems(I know he's all about revisionist history now) was a great singing, or how about how great the great signing of Marion the Barbarian Barber. Soul's choices of "good and bad" are actually worse then most; that fool thought Martz was going to turn it around :laughing-019:
