    I’m not pushing a false narrative OR telling anyone how to behave or react. You can behave or react any damn way you want, just as I’m able to react to it any damn way I want. You can say Jerry’s from outer space if you want. Conversely, I can laugh and say that’s stupid if I want. Get it?

    My whole point is always being disappointed and always complaining and always being unhappy about a game we have no control over is a monumental waste of time. It’s an eye rolling exercise in futility, but rage on!✊

    Well, KC released Eric Berry, he's about 3 years past his best playing days. That sounds like just the type of signing Dallas likes

    I really hope we don't lose ET as a fan. That's far more important.

    We all do. Some just don’t need 24/7 moaning.

    1. Signing bonus: $20 million.

    2. 2019 base salary: $2 million, fully guaranteed.

    3. 2020 base salary: $10 million, fully guaranteed.

    4. 2021 base salary: $11 million.

    5. 2022 base salary: $12 million.

    That’s it. It’s that simple, and that straightforward.

    Maybe other teams and agents should take that as a hint as to how easy it can all be.

    These terms are basically 2 years for 32 million. ET was looking for 14 mill a year and got 2 years at 16 mill per year. He agreed to a tiny bit less than 14 mill a year in exchange for more upfront - that's always a good decision. Those last two years are basically options that both parties have to agree to. The Ravens have to be willing to pay and ET has to be willing to continue to play. He could very well just retire after two year (he's hinted at it previously)

    Yep. Actually a solid deal for the Ravens and one the cowboys should have matched.

    But we like our guys.

    What do you mean by “even you” here? I question this team’s decision making all the time.

    Don’t by your own line that just because I think we have a good coach I think we’re making enough good decisions to win a world championship.

    I didn’t want to give a straight 2nd for Thomas last season. Highest I wanted to go was the 2nd for Thomas and a 4th. And that was before he broke his leg again.

    I do think we’re generally too conservative in FA, and that it’s hurt us. But I get not wanting to offer $14.5AAV and 32MM GTD here. That’s a lot of money.
