    How much more should he be paid.

    I keeping to myself for right now wither or not he should or should not be paid more money but I just want to know how much more money you think he should be getting.
    Also isn’t he already getting over a Million Dollars a year to play?
    I know maybe to some of you that is not a lot of money but to me that is a lot.
    BTW a hint on the my stance if you think by reading this post you know where I stand on the subject then you are wrong it is opposite then the way the post is written
    He's making what just over a Mil if i remember right? And i'm having no luck searching for a Salery list of the Nfl starting QB's, but i'd say he should atleast be getting 4mil with incentives and bonuses for preformance, wins and ect...
    You can look up salaries here:

    Thanx for that site, Tom Brady is only making 4mil, that doesn't seem right
    You can't be let down if you don't expect the world

    If life is a game, then I think I'm ahead by a field goal, heading into the end of the first half.

    TAKE A KNEE, DAMMIT!

    Are you working at a job where you can get knocked out for your career at any time and the term of employment averages between 4 and 5 years. And there are only about 1600 people in the world that are capable of doing said job?

    Truthfully, yes.
    Even less than 1600 actually.
    So pay the man.

    I'd say there are a lot less than 1600 people on the planet who could be a starting NFL QB.
    And I'd still say, so what?
    It's still a game.
    A game which I love to watch, which gives me great pleasure and pain, but a game, nonetheless.

    Ask a teacher who is responsible for the well-being and education of the FUTURE of our nation if we should feel bad that Brad Johnson is making ONLY a million dollars this year.

    Cool so using you own logic then cops, firefighter, and solders all should get paid over a million dollars a year, because they can get knocked out their career at any time also.
    I would also say that the stress that they face is also far greater then any football player faces.
    One more thing yes the average lifetime of a football player is 4 to 5 years and with Brad's career being over 10 years I think that it pretty much voids that argument.

    He's making what just over a Mil if i remember right? And i'm having no luck searching for a Salery list of the Nfl starting QB's, but i'd say he should atleast be getting 4mil with incentives and bonuses for preformance, wins and ect...
    You can look up salaries here:

    Thanx for that site, Tom Brady is only making 4mil, that doesn't seem right
    This site appears to give a little better breakdown of NFL salaries:

    Re: BJ - How fair is it

    Brad is grossly underpaid... I'm disappointed that the Vikings didn't step up. It's hurt the QB depth as a whole here.

    Then again my views of player pay is slightly different than most people on the board.
    lol
