Rodgers will be getting a better deal, but to think Kirk Cousins is reported to get an even better deal... time to start enjoying worse football where the QB gets 50% of the team seemingly gets 50% of the total salary and the rest have block him, catch his passes, or keep the other team from scoring more.

This contract stuff is out of control to me and ruins the game... and Nick Foles can prove you don't need to make $1.5 to $2 million per GAME to lead a team to a win over and over.

It's always been like that. I remember when Steve Young signed an extension with us many moons ago. It was the biggest contract in the history of the game at that time.

Keep in mind that (1) The salary cap keeps increasing year by year (2) The NFL is getting more and more offense-oriented, and the head of the offense is the QB. Hence, it's a QB-driven league, as they say.

You are right, the next QB contract will be bigger than Jimmy's, and the one after will be even bigger...repeat & rinse. It's been like that for decades, nothing new there

Eagles OC Frank Reich is the new Colts head coach: Frank Reich agrees to become next Colts head coach - NFL.com

Hope he gets along with the assistants that McDaniels had the Colts install before he decided to stay in NE.

The last time I saw a head coach get saddled with assistants was athletic director Dan Guerrero at UCLA making Rick Neuheisel keep DeWayne Walker at DC and assigning him Norm Chow as his offensive coordinator, and that went about as well as can be expected...

Jacoby Brissett will be more than adequate. He just needs a real NFL offensive line in front of him.

49ers Reuben Foster arrested again: Report: 49ers’ Reuben Foster arrested in domestic violence case – ProFootballTalk

Domestic violence carries an automatic six-game ban. Coupled with the weapons charges, I wonder when it’s too early to cut bait on a first-round pick...?

Note that Santa Clara is holding him without bail.

This guy makes me miss Aldon Smith. Sure, he endangered others with his DUI, but he had/has a problem with addiction. Foster just seems like he’s an &#$@)(?!%

That's a blessing in disguise for the Colts. McD would've been a horrible as a HC for them.
