Flacco contract

Recommended Posts

it's 1.5m. That's the great part. End. It could have been fully guaranteed and it wouldn't matter.

Of course, a traffic cone doesn't have the vet minimum so it would have cost even less.

It's actually mind blowing how I once thought Macc was a decent GM when he first got here.  I apologize....

Worst jet employee ever, players included

Eh, me too.

GM gets that 1 to 2 year grace period, where you think he's doing well.   Then you realized the team is bottom 5 in talent, and has no cap space.

Unbelievable. I went crazy over that contract. Some people said, It isn't your money what does it matter.

LOL, spend the other 9 million of good players. Crazy concept.

Even crazier, the Eagles signed the guy for $2M last year and he played in the playoffs for them.  Same player at 1/5 the price.  Do you think maybe Maccagnan bid against himself a bit on that one?

Flacco already made his money and is a jersey guy.  Gets to live close home and work on being a mentor.  Maybe he’s looking to be a QB coach after playing, possibly OC long term. Works out good for him.

about the only down side to flacco is that he won't be ready for game 1.  shouldn't be too much of a risk.

100% agreed! I too was enraged by that 10 million dollar deal. I liked McKown as a mentor, was hoping they would have hired him as the QB coach. He didn't have anything left as a backup, just another Mac deal that was unexplainable.

Not to mention we already had Bridgewater at the time.

What’s the plan? Do teams carry 3 qbs or is it 2 and an emergency. Feel like the rule changes recently. Darnold flacco rookie?

Same. I held on waaay too long.  When he got us Sam I couldn’t shake my rose colored Macglasses.  I still feel like I’d buy the guy a coffee just for doing that.

Well first off, Flacco won't be ready for Week 1, so that impacts things a bit.

Secondly, with rosters increasing to 55, I think carrying 3 QB's is fine, but activating 3 on gameday might not happen.  

Until Flacco gets back it'll likely be Fales operating as the # 2, with Morgan as the # 3 and White perhaps on the Practice Squad.

Once Flacco returns I'm not sure what happens to Fales and White.

I agree.   He gets to live where he hopefully wants to live, it's like a paid intern to being a QB coach, if he does a good job as a backup, he could last 3-4 more years making a bit more money than he is now, 2-3 million per year.

Let's face it, is there a better job in the world than being a backup QB?   You get paid to work out, know the playbook, talk football to your #1 QB, you aren't even allowed to be hit in practice.  Oh, and you make millions per year.
