Joe Flacco agrees !

this is a discussion within the NFL Community Forum; ... on a side note, they really need to stop using the "highest paid player in history" tag. Means nothing when the next guy always becomes the highest paid player in history at his position....

Are you suggesting when Romo signs his new deal he will be the 'highest paid ever'

Please please let it be so.

Re: Joe Flacco agrees !

I think it has become a thing where quarterbacks want the "highest paid QB in history" tag or "biggest deal ever," even if they know it's just for a few months. The ego part of it, including the agents, has gotten out of control.

I had a friend who worked in the concert business, and he told me one time, that one of the big hangups over the Rolling Stones NOT touring, was that every tour they had ever done had been record-breaking, financial and attendance wise, and their egos had gotten so big that now they didn't want to do a tour at all, unless it was RECORD BREAKING and bigger than everybody else's payday. It would be considered a step down for them to do a regular tour, something that wasn't monstrously bigger than every other band in history of music. This was apparently how Mick Jagger and their agents would think. So even when huge amounts of money are flying around, celebrities and people do think about these stupid things like lists and records and dumb stuff like that.

Re: Joe Flacco agrees !

I still have no idea why Romo is hated so much.

Other than being a Cowboy, why the hate?

If he played for the Chiefs, would anyone still hate him?

Joe Flacco, the highest paid qb in history.

I would think I was drunk and imagining things, but I haven't had anything to drink today so what the hell?

Somehow, you just know he is going to suck eggs next season.

Probably not but the fine folks here in the metroplex seem to think that Romo is the modern day version of Danny White. From my perspective most of these Dallas teams over the last 10+years haven't had any balance and that makes it hard. Either they have issues with the o-line, lack of a running game or a defense that is decimated by injury but some how people around here revert back to Romo as the 'problem'.

Personally I think he has done a hellava job under HEAVY scrutiny but I think fans, critics and media guys forget HE WAS UNDRAFTED but he gets the heat like he was a #1 draft pick. I guess that comes with the package of wearing that star on your helmet & Jerry Jones trying to run many hats with the ball club.
