that was a good read, danno. and it is one of the things that i think about a lot when people start talking like rodgers is disposable. like it's a big game of madden and you can just plug in the next hall-of-fame qb. although we might never hear it, i suspect that there are a few teams out there that wish they had to deal with the cap problem of paying a top qb like rodgers and still being able to provide a good surrounding cast. is there a balance point somewhere - where you can have a modestly paid mediocre qb and spend gobs of money on other positions? it sure doesn't seem that way. mediocre qbs get mega-dollar contracts because there aren't enough of them.
