It's because actual football professionals are making these decisions and not you, an obsessed hater.

Colts look to be all kinds of fucked. Regardless of what their finances are like (I have no idea). Not really very similar situations IMO.

Stafford has one ability way above Luck. Availability. If player's pay reflected thier contribution as you wish ............... Luck should be paid less than Rudock.
Availability isn’t an ability, it’s a status. One ability Mediocre Matty has over luck is that he can actually throw a football. Apparently Luck isn’t throw the ball yet in his rehab.

But Patricia is also approaching this job with the reality that not just one man can win or lose a football game or help Detroit get over the hump. Patricia knows he has an important piece in place at quarterback with Stafford, but his task is improving the roster from 1 to 53 so both his quarterback and the team are in a better position to have consistent success.

ďWeíre going to coach the whole team and itís going to have to be the team that wins it,Ē he said. ďItís not going to be just one guy.

Inevitably that is what happens. QB gets paid a kings ransom and people complain because there isn't enough around him to win. The Lions and Colts have their starting QB making 19%+ of team payroll and both struggle to put together a roster of enough talent to do anything with those QB's - even when Luck was healthy.
And incredibly the Lions will still have over $50 mil in cap space. The issue isn't the money. The issue is not properly evaluating and finding cheap labor via the draft. The better your team drafts the better you can field a full team capable of making a serious run in the playoffs.

Problem is there’s no guarantee’s with the draft. It’s as much about luck as it is about due diligence. Washington Post analysis of the last 20 years of drafts shows that. Shit the only two time hiesman trophy winner was a complete NFL bust.

They got over 50 million in cap space, until they franchise a player they already had on their roster - then it's down to 33 - and they still need a ton of players/upgrades.

I agree whole heartedly, if you are going to pay 20% of your entire budget for 1 guy or 1 position, you HAVE to nail the draft and low budget FA process - and have coaches that can get the most out of those players.

Hopefully the combination of Quinn and Patricia can make some serious headway in that regard.

I think people fail to realize that every time the cap increases, that increase is already spent. Virtually every position the cost of business increases, the minimum salary of all the cannon fodder on the roster increases and one can only hope that the increase of one position doesn't turn a cap increase into deficit spending. Added: In many ways the NFL cap increase is like raising the minimum wage, sure you get more dollars but your buying power doesn't change.

Fucking Stafford can't even make more $$ than a 6-game, first-time starter.

Fucking Stafford!

We need to finally pay Stafford. He has been low balled long enough......wait not. Jimmy G has rings. He is better than Stafford.

I don't think the tag is happening on Ziggy. My guess is the Lions offer him a 3 year deal to stay and he'll laugh at it and walk. And the Lions will let him.

That is sad. But probably totally correct.

Neither one of those douches can hold Nick Foles', Blake Bortles', Borck Osweiller's or Case Keenums jock!
