Brady cheated. He took lower salary, while Kraft donated large sums of money to Tom's "charity"....from which Tom paid himself as a leader of charity. It wasn't illegal, but it completely violates the spirit of the NFL and gave them an unfair advantage. Not surprising: they cheated whenever they could, with zero guilt. Who knows what they would have done had they played by same rules WE do.How many SBs did the Patriots win during Brady‘s 2nd, 3rd and 4th contracts (not doing the research but it has to be around 3-4)? Mahomes isn’t on a rookie deal and may win it all this year. Josh Allen isn’t on a rookie deal and he is on a damn good team. There has been many QBs who have won SBs after their rookie deals.
You’re insinuating like it’s easy to find a SB caliber QB in the draft. It’s really not.
The other QBs u mention, including Burrow, are ELITE. You HAVE to pay them...but still how many SBs has HOFer Aaron rogers won since the Packers signed him to a MEGA contract? None, because they can't afford good players.
Short of Mahomes, Allen, and Burrow, I'd be REAL leery of giving 1 guy 20% of ur cap...and even with those 3, it really limits ur team.
