    IDK man. Problem is, if you don't have a Qb, you got nuthin'. And since starter quality QB's are rare, even the 15-25 range gets paid handsomely.

    Qb's are signed with hope and expectation. Life is full of disappointments.

    :clap::clap:the only difference is NFL/owners are making more money, which they're required to share with the players. Read this......you can probably make a case we as fans are responsible coz we continue making the NFL a profitable monster.

    The cap grows from contractually obligated revenue like sponsorship and TV deals, and then projections of local revenue based on the year before. It rose from $155 million in 2016 to the $167 million for the coming season.

    A big driver is the new Thursday night TV package, which grew from $300 million to $450 million a year after CBS and NBC agreed to a new two-year deal last year. That comes to nearly $5 million extra per club. The other national TV contracts also have annual increases that add to the cap.

    Owners want to win, this gives the players all the leverage. As long as the cap keeps going up so will the pay for key positions.Back up QBs are making more $$$ than guys like Aikman and Montana did in their hay days.

    Excellent point! For example, just read last week Broncos QB, Case Keenum is set to make either 18 or $19m next season.

    Yes, I should have said Wentz/Foles.

    Neither gets full credit. Wentz had 11 wins getting them the first round bye. Foles won the playoff games.

    Math, ain't it a booger?

    The guarantee doesn't come off the cap in one year.

    Agree but double that of the closest and possibly the better player is pushing it. Some of these highly paid QB's are not even in the top 3-5 best players on the team. There is a shortage of Tier 1's so Tier 2's get Tier 1 money.

    I understand what you are saying but it's a horrible idea to overpay for Andy Dalton, or Ryan Tannehill. That's how these teams get mired in mediocrity.

    Part of the problem is the insistence on the "formula" of one franchise QB that stays in the pocket and passes the ball 40 times per game.

    A team could add three low level QBs to the roster that have jets for legs, who can pass a little bit, and turn the NFL on its head. The problem hasn't been the success of those teams it is the injuries to the QBs.

    At some point the worm will turn in the same way that running backs have experienced a resurgence. There are not enough Pat Mahommes in the world to put one on every team.

    I get your point
    but I need to call you on posting full duration of contract guaranteed dollars as a percentage of only one year of cap.

    Not very relevant.

    Yes, but paying a QB $30M doesn't make him pass the ball any better.

    Why would you take the entire length of acontract and compare it to a single years cap?

    The only cycle we have seen is QB's get paid more than everyone else even as the cap goes up every year; if I am wrong about this please share. I dont get why fans care; but Dak deserves to get paid. 20 mil is only 3 million more than Romo got on his big contract back in 2013 after leading his team to 3 straight 8-8 seasons. Not only has the cap gone up significantly since then but Dak the last 3 seasons has led his team to the second most wins in the NFL since he has been in the NFL.

    The current situation simply places more importance in having an elite QB.

    And I don’t expect it to change anytime soon as Salary Cap is dictating.

    Teams with a more elite QB is easier to surround in Cap era.

    Yes. But I'm saying that is part of the problem. They are paying bad QBs a lot of money.
