WOW! I had no idea. Not a real value for that price.

SaintFanInATLHELL 08-09-2005 09:10 AM

Don't be fooled by the disparity of the numbers. Almost all major NFL contracts are frontloaded with a huge signing bonus and backloaded with huge salaries that will most likely never be seen. Note that Brooks' contract only has 3 years left on it while the others are 4 years or more. Note the huge jump that Penninton's contract takes starting in 2006.

Comparing salaries for a single year is pretty much a waste of time. You have to view the overall contract: signing bonus, number of years, backloaded years, and whatnot in order to get a fair comparison.

You can rest assured that this is Brooks' (and probably Green's) last big salary year. Next offseason those contracts will be renegotiated with another moderate signing bonus (probably in the $10 mil range) along with 4 to 6 more years with small salaries up front, and huge salaries that will never be paid.

His cap number is even larger - something like 7.5 million I think.

Then again, SF just paid a rookie a lot more. Think he'll be better or worse? Mike Vick has a contract worth 3 times as much, and though Vick is definitely a game-breaker, Brooks is a better QUARTERBACK right now. Hell, Delhomme makes more than Brooks now... actually, it's about the same. Then again, Delhomme is a better QB, so... :)

Jake just signed a new contract. Note his number next season goes to 4.785 million, then into the 6.4 range.

And the curious few are supposed to glean exactly what from all of these figures?

TheGambler 08-09-2005 11:31 AM

I love how Brooks totally outshined Jake in that final game.........with a playoff berth hanging on the line. I hope he does the same in Week 1.

WhoDat 08-09-2005 02:05 PM

LOL

When a person on this board criticizes AB, someone always seems to run in and talk about how AB has such a bad defense, his running game sucked in '04, his WRs drop passes, he threw more than any other QB in the league, his offensive line is terrible... blah blah blah.

Yet, when you look at a game like the Carolina game, AB outplayed Delhomme.

Nevermind the fact that Jake attempted 50 passes to AB's 24.
Nevermind the fact that Jake racked up 307 yards, 2 TDs, and 0 INTs. (AB - 216, 1, 0).
Nevermind the fact that Deuce ran for 140 yards, Goings rushed for 46 (only 13 carries).
Nevermind that the Saints defense allowed fewer yards and points.
Nevermind that the Saints D had 5 sacks in the game (Brooks was sacked 3 times).
Nevermind that the Saints D held the Panthers to 10 points until the closing moments of the 4th quarter.
Nevermind that the Saints had 3 takeaways.

Nope, none of those things matter when you're talking about how well AB played - only when you're talking about how poorly - then those are all perfectly good excuses.
