    Re: What The Jimmy G Deal Means

    I guess I wouldn't go bragging about our tight end situation seeing how we totaled 90 million in contracts to Gronk and Hernandez...neither of which has played a meaningful snap in two years.

    Gronk averages 9 million a year, Hernandez averaged 8, Graham will now average 10.

     

    Graham though actually plays.

     

    Graham, though drafted with Hern and Gronk, cost significantly less in 2012 and 2013.

     

    According to sootrac, Graham's cap hit this season will be 4 million, compared with 5.4 for Gronk.

     

    We'll have to see the actual structure of the deal, but so far Saints are probably feeling better than the Pats about their TE and what they've spent so far and what they will have to spend going forward.

    Tom Brady was the highest paid QB in 2011 and 2012, which really hamstrung the team off the lockout in a flat cap.

    No "thanks TB" at all.

    Also, your lack of a counter with my understanding of the NFL market, speaks volumes.  Nighty night, RKrap.

    Lie of all lies!!!!!

    You have no freaken idea what he made.

    And if he EVER did hamstring the team (which he hasn't) IT WOULD BE BELLIDICKS FAULT!

    Re: What The Jimmy G Deal Means

    Another thread detailing how stupid other team's managements are and how brilliant BB is. Who would have guessed?

    On the Pats' roster one could easily look at Mankins' contract and wonder what BB was thinking. Our guard has a cap # of 10.5 mil this year and 11 mil next year.

    It's the way professional sports works and once a player performs at a high level they want to get paid. If current players such as Chandler Jones, Solder or even a second year player such as Jamie Collins keep improving, the Pats will have to pay through the nose to keep these guys. It's either pay 'em or let 'em walk.

    It'll be interesting to see if the Pats can get McCourty's signature on a contract soon and if so at what price.

    Did you just call him "Bellidick"?  There is no way you were a fan pre Kraft era. NO WAY


    Do you know who Dick McPherson is?  lol


    Yes, Brady was overpaid with the highest QB deal in history in 2011.  Leave it to you, Giselle, to claim he wasn't.

    Wrong, liar,  What was his cap hit that hand cuffed the team?  Go ahead enlighten us.  BWAHAHA


    And ya I called him bellidick.  Do you think you're the only one who can assign names to people?


    I would think you would love it since you don't like chicks and prefer the other.

    I already mentioned Mankins. Are you blind?

     

     

    Did you also miss where I said BB's teambuilding consistency is so superior, that a bloated deal like that doesn't hamper the quality of the overall roster long term?

     

    Please learn to read.

     

    Are you aware the Giants are set to miss the postseason for the 3rd year in a row or Baltimore for the 2nd?  How is Pitt looking these days? Do you think that is only due to poor drafting? Nope.

     

    One injury and a team like the Saints could literally miss the playoffs with no depth and a thin roster after 2014 or maybe even this year in that division.  Denver is in the same boat in 2015 if they give Julius Jones a Graham deal for a one trick pony TE.

     

     



    My bad! I hardly ever read your posts from beginning to end. It's not a reading problem but a not enough time in the day issue to see the same theme regurgitated throughout all your posts.

    I'll pay more attention next time Doug. Not blind or illiterate but thanks all the same!

    Re: What The Jimmy G Deal Means

    Gronk healthy is the best TE in the league.  Graham, though, has been more reliable and, as a receiver at least, nearly as good. I just don't see any problem with the Saints' move.  In fact, given Gronk's repeated injuries, it's arguable that Graham is the better guy to have on your team.
