    Tillman will probably follow Lovie toTB. JMO

    So basically the guaranteed money comes out to 18 million a year for 3 years in the Cutler deal. Pretty much market value for a franchise QB.

    It's scary to think what Russell Wilson's gonna get in a few years.

    Sorry, that's a lot for Cutler. IMO, he's not a franchise QB.

    and that's the problem the giants have. eli costs too much so they have to skimp in other areas and the team falls apart. the time to win is when you're not paying that much for a qb unless you really have an elite qb like brady or peyton.

    losing Slauson wasn't the best feeling, but i understood Izdik's position. the draft pick he'd make (Winters) is cheaper and has much higher upside. and losing Slauson meant gaining an extra compensation pick.

    overall, a downgrade thus far. but the potential upgrade could come along as soon as this season, be it a better Winters or a better rookie.

    I don't think so. Slauson was horrible. Him leaving was no big loss.

    I know it is a popular opinion of late that these QB contracts prevent teams from fielding a competitive roster, but it really isnt true. If a team drafts well they can still win. The Giants problems are not Eli's contract, it is that they have not drafted well at all over the last few seasons. The Giants would be still be in the same situation they are in now even if they were paying Eli 12 million a year.

    true, their drafts have been below average. and they've had some rotten injury luck. but they spent a ton on eli and he's not an elite qb, and that's the problem. but you need to overpay to keep him and the more you spend on any one player the more you need to go right with everything else you do.

    Eli is far from elite, but he's still better than half the QBs in the league. You have to pay big money to a qb that shows signs of competency because the alternative is that much more costly. They won two SBs with Eli, and while he's not a top 5 or probably not even top 10 QB, he's still miles better than anything we've had the past 20 years.

    So while it does suck to pay a non top 5 QB 20 mil+ plus a year, if find a qb you can win (and have win with), you pay him the money. Stability at the QB position is the most important thing for a team. Flacco is just an average QB, but the risk of him leaving and his replacement being worse means the Ravens had to pay him. You don't need a Peyton Manning or Aaron rodgers to win the SB, and you can still field a good team while paying an average QB like eli or flacco 20 mil a year.

    Tillman likes to jump routes & take a few chances, likes to Man up & is a tremendous tackler, the guy is a ball magnet compared to Wilson.
    Tillman would love to play for Rex I believe. He'd be a solid vet signing & pay huge dividends if we could get him here on a decent salary.

    Slauson was not horrible, and it was a loss.

    He improved even more this year and put up a good year according to PFF. For us last year, he had an average year which is acceptable because you have to cheap out at some positions and he didnt' get paid much.


    It was a mistake and considering how bad Winters was, it's an even clearer mistake.

    Good for Matt. The Jets treated him like ****. The guy is going to have a ten-year career in the NFL when it's all said and done and was the best pick of the Jets' 2009 draft class.

    Good move by the Bears. Cutler is better than McCown who is not the long-term answer there by a mile.

    I think he should be on our radar, but I'm happy to even go after a "lesser" veteran QB backup such as Henne or Hill as well.

    I disagree. He was a 4th year player who was nothing more than a below average player. Winter's is a rookie and played well down the stretch. Definately a smart move letting Slausen go.

    He brought a sense of toughness to the team; he was a leader in the locker room; he was an effective run and pass blocker; he helped train the younger OGs on the team; he will now cost a lot less money then if he hadn't been injured; he loves playing for Rex!
