sirlancemehlot Posted September 7, 2012 Share Posted September 7, 2012 You don't reward players for past performance alone, you sign them to extensions for FUTURE performance. No RB in the history of the NFL has been effective into his mid-30's, and no successful team in the NFL ever hands out extensions like these. This is a business, its not about rewarding players because they're "good guys". Chrebet and Martin were a joy to watch.......in their primes. The version of Curtis we paid at the end of his career, and the concussion-riddled Chrebet we saw at the end of his? Not what I think of when I think of those guys. And a terrible, terrible set of business decisions. Pennington is more forgivable only because we thought he was the franchise guy. But the amount of money we paid him was exorbitant, well above market value. What the Bills handed Ryan Fitzpatrick seems like peanuts by comparison. Yeah no argument on the above. Just think they were "bad" contracts whereas Holmes' contract was "rediculously bad" considering he never proved his value to begin with. And he's small. And kind of an a$$hole.
