We haven't seen the contract extension either.

Looks like this type of money will be the norm for franchise quarterbacks.

The whiners are weaker and have a ceiling because of the quarterback's ceiling...

Advantage > Saints...

These insane contracts are ridiculous. What if he gets injured in preseason and is out for the season and it lingers around for the next few years? What a waste of money. That arrogant f**ktard isnt even close to being worth that much. The 49ers GM is an idiot!

Not only is he not worth HALF of the contract he is under investigation for crimes in Florida. Only in SF!

I think he was cleared from the investigation. But he still isn't worth half of the contract.

Insane money...

But as for the 49ers now being in perpetual cap hell, I would only point out that there's always a way to massage the cap to sign the players a team needs, like the Saints (and Loomis) know very well.

Well do the 49ers have a Loomis? Sounds easy; but they're teams(Falcons) that have problems "massaging" the cap...

Falcons were in the Byrd sweepstakes, but couldn't make it work; even though they had more cap room than we did...
