Re: QBs have done well after moving teams...

Bortles is here for insurance.

And that's not my point anyway. You cannot continue to give QB's more of a percentage of the salary cap and not in turn, start to severely impact your overall team. That's the point. No one is here to diss Goff which is probably part of your reaction. But, if Goff were to get hurt and Bortles played well...I guess we will see if McVay is the QB whisperer.

Let's take it to the absurd...what happens if QBs become 50% of the salary cap? Other positions will have to take a severe pay cut. Or, the make up of the roster would change to having lots and lots of young guys. The point is that continuing QBs to eat up a larger portion of the total cap is not sustainable.

This places an even greater focus on drafting well...or using draft picks to get younger proven talent...like a Cooks or Peters.

The more QBs eat up cap space at a greater rate than the increase in the cap, that more the whole philosophy of building a team will change. There has to be some limit...at some point with the escalations in QB salaries.

Sadly, soon some of the QB contracts will be X% of the salary cap type deals so they don't keep getting leapfrogged...as the salary cap goes up so does their pay type of deals.

Not trying to diss Blake, just saying finding a franchise type QB isn't as easy as you seem to think it is....he was a first round QB who didn't even make it past his rookie contract with the team that drafted him.

I agree with you though that the QB money is getting out of control.... one player getting 17% leaving 52 players fighting over the remaining 83% with players like Donald and a few others who eat up 60% of that pie leaves you with a team of young players on rookie contracts with very little depth.
