Does it take an extra 24 hours for news to travel to the Tri cities. ;)

You predicted the team that lost an MVP QB and had Brian Hoyer and Jason Stidham as the only QBs on their roster would sign the best FA QB available? Way to go out on limb.

Not much of a limb but at least better that the Hawks homers that are just dumbfounded that he wouldn't want to come here to watch RW run for his life nearly every passing down. (Seahawks twitter, not anyone here)

And Sherman complains the salary is too small. When a player signs a huge salary and people complain, players want us to realize the market dictates their salary...unless they think it isn’t enough money, then it isn’t the market, it’s just not fair.

For a former MVP that contract is iffy.

That was 5 years ago. You could say for a guy that has won 6 games since 2017 and dresses like Phillys Diller, he got a pretty good deal. :)

So, why is it iffy? He signed a deal that he was offered, as I said, the market dictated it. Reports say the only other team to even talk to him was Cleveland. You are worth what someone is willing to pay you...that is what teams were willing to pay him. As I said, why is it that the "market dictates the price" only works when these guys are trying to justify HUGE money...but not when they feel slighted? If no one is willing to pay you, that is what you are worth...right?

Damn straight. Good ole supply and demand in free market economy. Same reason it is ridiculous when people complain that pro athletes make more than teachers.

Because there are worse QBs making alot more. . And teams took risks on QBs with injuries etc.. It's not fair but he went to a good situation for him.
