Quote from: azzurri63 on May 28, 2023, 10:10:46 AMFor a player with a big question mark as far as elevating his game in the playoffs why do we have to pay him more than McD or MacK?
Because that is how finances work in sports. Look at the NFL. There is no better QB in the game than Mahomes, but every year, the QB that is up for renewal makes more, because inflation exists.
It's not about whose better when it gets to the financial situation. This is their job. I could see a comment from Matthews like "Hey you have to pay me more because I have to put up with unknown people saying derogatory things about me and questioning my desire to play this game on a nightly basis".
