    $10M for no production this year is definitely disappointing, no argument there.

    After hearing some of the stuff both Bennett's have said about Romo, I'd say you are correct

    No doubt about it, but nothing the right amount of money couldn't change.

    Makes Ratliff more important, but at this point I don't expect him back either.

    Options. If they do not draft a DE with their 1st pick this April, it would be nice to have options.

    And I agree that they should not count on Crawford; he is also just an option. They need to keep loading up on young talent, keep their productive young players and bring in affordable vets who are willing to play for cap-friendly contracts. Spencer, unfortunately, will be unable to command a huge contract so I would place him in that last category.

    talk about getting paid big money to do nothing...

    Question: Since he played like maybe 1 total quarter is all 10mil guaranteed to him?

    Yes the ten million hit for this year hurts. But guess what oyr cap just went up 10 million for next year. Just think if he got that nice 45 million dollar deal from dallas with 20-25 guaranteed imagine what that cap would have looked like

    If I was a betting man, I would bet we don't see Ratliff suit up again, but I really hope I am wrong.

    Come on now, he had like 20 snaps in the KC game, that's only 500K a snap.

    Of course you can second guess what you pay Spencer all day long, but I think he's the far superior player. His sack numbers have always been hindered by the fact that he has had to play coverage so often.

    Funny, Garrett said that Spencer did not have a setback during the week. Another flat out lie.

    Yes they did.

    But look at the bargains they've gotten elsewhere.

    I don't like seeing the $10 mil go up in smoke, but it's not all bad.

    I knew he needed Micro-fracture surgery, something fishy about this injury from the start that just didn't make sense.....big waste of a franchise money....

    If there is one concept I've learned in law and business, it's that just because a plan doesn't work does not mean it was a bad plan. There is inherent risk in every move, and a bad plan does not minimize risk. If we had let Spencer walk, we'd be risking losing a major asset for virtually no return. Franchising him wasn't a bad plan because it minimized risk to the point that we can easily recover -- a bad plan would have been to give him a big contract a la Ratliff.

    Oh, and those crowing about Bennett -- you do realize that Bennett and Selvie have had virtually identical production, right?

    Last week they said that might be necessary. Spencer haters will have a field day with this.

    Ha ha what? If they Pats were doing that it's "Belichick's genius mind games". Garretts a liar for the same? Come on.

    Definitely true, but the market for players was a surprise for everyone this offseason.
