Now I see all of these posts such as Dak is getting paid too much, we could have gotten someone else with the same results for cheaper. Now I don’t disagree that Dak has needed cardiopulmonary resuscitation for choking in his last two divisional playoff appearances. But, Daks pay vs. pedestrian production in the playoffs is one fragment of a bigger problem in the league. Which is exploding salaries for average to above average qbs.
If this "I’m next" mentality continues what is the end point? Will qbs command 50, 70, or 90 million per year over the next five years? What about the next 10 years? How can this cannibalism of the team budget continue in a league with a hard salary cap? We have stats in now that show high paid qbs are not even making the playoffs, let alone a threat for any SB run. It is becoming apparent that paying QBs a huge amounts results in little to no playoff success. Yet teams are being pressured by top 10 qbs to give them their asking price or they will walk. So how should teams with supreme QBs such Burrow or Mahomes act if their superstar QB has leverage and threatened to leave. It may take up to ten years to get an equivalent QB talent in the draft. So I ask you zoners what would be your solutions for this conundrum?
