    They had better win one in the next two years. After that, they will be in deep cap doo-doo. Maybe we should start planning now to snatch Wilson away from them? He'll command a huge salary if he keeps playing like he did this past season.

    My Meeple is purple. What color is yours?

    Meh, they paid a premium and a half for a tweener WR and they paid a premium for rice who is averaging 40 receptions and 600 yards receiving and 4.5 TD's a year. Oh, and the stole Tarvaris who quickly became the starting, I mean benched, I mean sent packing QB.

    They will be hurting in 2 years when the checks come due.

    Wish we had the problem of having to figure out how to pay our franchise QB in a couple years.

    I called it in another thread, said whoever got Percy would win the Super Bowl next year.

    Our front office is absolutely inept. Still can't believe we think Spielman is a legit GM... and people point to the fact that we were one-and-done in the playoffs last year as proof that he's good.

    Um... okay...

    I say that in reference to combining a bunch of big name players with "all about me" types of attitude. Hard to build that team chemistry.

    I do like Wilson though. Very calm and collective, but confident on the field. They could very well be a very dominant team next year, or crash and burn like the Eagles did with all the big name players.

    In terms of money, the difference between an "all about me" great player and a great player is one has to ask to be paid what he's worth & the other is already being paid what he's worth without having to ask for it.

    If you're referring to ""all about me" as a player being hard to build team chemistry, then....
