This team is going through a fullblown rebuilding phase.
Yet we should give a CB a contract on par with the most elite franchise QB's in the game today?
You'll have to forgive me if I consider that the silliest goddamn thing I've ever heard.
I think the problem is your definition (or everyone's definition) of "rebuilding". The old version of that term doesn't exist anymore. There's no such thing as a full on rebuilding mode. You can turn a franchise around in 1 year. You pick two positions to fix and start swinging.
If we actually had competent play at QB last year - Greene & Powell would have been MORE than enough to get by. In fact, that goes for a lot our woes.
3 and outs makes everyone look bad by the 3rd quarter.
