    2018 NFL Season Thread

    Time to stop talking about 2017....it's 2018 time. All the teams have their new coaches..... (oops Sorry Indy).
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    I have no idea why the players in the NFLPA don't cap individual salaries. Let's say the max is 15 million. In SF's case they would have an extra 12 million to spend on the 52 other players.

    So it's safe to say NFL owners are NOT colluding.

    Because their union sucks and NFL players won't get "together".

    They didn't let him get out of town. That's how winners do it.

    From Rotoworld with Rotoworld comments:

    Vikings hired Eagles QBs coach John DeFilippo as offensive coordinator.

    It's a coup for the Vikings, as DeFilippo had reportedly been "leaning toward" staying in Philadelphia after being passed over for the Bears and Cardinals' head-coaching vacancies. On the rise since a well-regarded showing as the Browns' offensive coordinator in 2015, DeFilippo has earned raves for his work with Carson Wentz. DeFilippo is inheriting excellent talent at running back and receiver, but doesn't yet know which quarterback he will be coaching in 2018. It stands to reason DeFilippo will employ some of the play-calling optimization techniques he learned under Doug Pederson in Philly.

    How does a guy with less than 10 career starts become the highest paid player in the league?

    San Fran is run by idiots. They gave up a high 2nd to get a guy with 2 starts and about to hit FA. He has a good stretch and really had them over the barrel. I fully expect him to be the next Matt Cassel once NFL teams get some actual tape on him.

    Why would they? The average length of their career is so short they want to get paid while they can.

    I don't think they would either but the reason they might would be that a few stars would lose out on $$ but many, many more would benefit

    If they wanted to negotiate bigger pay days then you...

    A) Make a larger portion of it guaranteed
    B) Cap the total value.

    Players get more money with that trade off without making the contract guaranteed like other sports.

    I've heard the players are the ones who are against guaranteed deals. The theory being they would like the potential of more than the probability of less. I certainly can't blame the owners for not wanting them. Why pay a guy for 5 years when in all likelihood he only lasts 1 or 2?

    The problem with deals that big, is the salary cap itself. At some point, a QB has to ask himself if he would rather have 30 million dollars a year for 5 years, with no one to throw to and no one protecting his blindside, or if he'd rather have 15 million a year, with a few targets to throw to and a halfway decent LT watching his back.

    That's exactly WHY they should do it. Only a handful of players get big contracts. Cap those salaries at 15 million, or 10 million, and the little guys all get a big raise. I'm suggesting the little guys fight the big guys.
