    Already refuted.

    Mahomes signed a "team friendly" deal so the Chiefs could retain a major player in Chris Jones. If M doesn't take a salary in the upper 20 mil/season, the Chiefs lose Jones.


    The Seachickens paid Sherm and Earl a fortune. Cost them major players on their Dline. Result: No more super bowls.


    Rams paid Gurley and Goff a fortune. More like overpaid. Cost them Saffold, Cooks, Sullivan(C), Barron, Joyner, Littleton, Fowler. Result: Major slide from super bowl appearance to 9-7 and missing playoffs.


    This is easy. When teams overpay players, it costs them dearly. Do you really think Belly wants to let guys like Chandler Jones, Jaime Collins, Logan Ryan, Kyle Van Noy walk? Of course not. Why does he? Salary cap.


    Rethink this one Whirlygig, you've got it wrong.

    You can look down a list of FA's from all the teams through the years and find many that we could've used but couldn't afford.

    Earl Thomas recently. There's one.

    What you're asking is a bit strange, though, because we often didn't go after certain players because we didn't have the room.

    Kind of like the team "begging" Romo into a restructure.

    By most Mahomes on the surface signed a team friendly contract at least the first couple of years. but to keep Mahomes the chiefs have to fully guarantee two years at a crack. It gets to where Mahomes will count anywhere from 49 mil a year all the way up to 59 mil a year in the future if they keep him after the 3rd day of the new year in those seasons. So other than the first couple of years of the contract it's not always so team friendly. If the chiefs go all ten years they will have guaranteed and paid 450 million dollars.

    If we didn't sign Clinton Dix then we could use a safety. Woods and Dix are the starters though and 2 decent ones. I don't know if Ryan would provide a substantial upgrade at a safety though we could use some more depth.

    Go to use them. Couldn’t afford them. Or just the franchise just didn’t want them. But I understand the Has a purpose but it’s not as devastating as some of these fans make it out to be. I just don’t want to pay certain players money and others they want to pay. It’s an excuse

    I have been a big proponent of upgrading at safety and we got Dix and majorly upgraded at DL

    I’m good with this

    let’s let this season play out

    Griffen's mental health problems are why I think we signed him so late in the game. They're out there when you look into them. I think he brought his asking price down just to play ball because of them.

    Well, in answering the question posed, I can't but what's more, I wouldn't. I was never a fan of hiring Garret as our OC and I was definitely not in favor of hiring him as our HC. Not because I didn't think he was smart or because I didn't like him, only because I think Coaching is a profession where experience makes a lot of difference. You don't know what you don't know and I don't care what anybody says, experience and knowledge does effect the job. I just didn't think we should have done what we did with a guy, any guy, who hadn't put in the time.

    Likely a factor. I’m amazed the Cowboys got such a deal. Kudos front office!

    Everson Griffin is an aggressive type. I suspect it's entirely possible that his aggressive nature stood him in questionable judgment with the authorities. That could have very possibly worked to our advantage in signing him. His aggressiveness might just be a good thing for our defense.

    LOL -- drink something other than beer and it shouldn't be a problem.

    Otherwise, drink beer and you've simply brought it upon yourself! :D

    I guess if I want to drink beer I need to buy tickets in the cheap seats so he can't find me (not that any of them are really cheap).

    I'm assuming the Vikings leaders in the FO might be a bunch of tea-totalers! :muttley:
    No such thing in our FO is very likely to occur, unless I've missed my guess! :grin:

    Hence, we in the land of JerryWorld aren't in much of a threat to lose this guy! :)

    why sign a corner to play safety when you could just move Awuzie or Robinson or both...for free.

    I’ve said this before but I think it is so funny that our safeties are named Dix and Woods. :laugh:

    Too bad that happened after Reggie Bush retired.
