    Actually, I didn't realize how big Mahomes' cap hit was this year. I just kind of assumed they had restructured him. Almost $36MM... Another good test for the 13% threshold.

    No way.. now he may structure it so the cap hit is under $40 mill the first few hears but no freaking way is Joe taking a haircut like that on his first contract.

    If he did, you best believe he will have a Joe Breezy shop in the stadium
    somewhere.
    I lost a bet about Najee gaining 1300 yards.

His game day strategy, culture of divas, in game decisions, clock management, player evaluation, hires, and affinity with sub par starters at RB, P, and OL are holding the Steelers back. That standard remains the standard"

    Yeah.. that 13% threshold thing has been consistent. And being down two wide receivers as well? Could be a long day for him.

    Mahomes is in the Superbowl and getting paid.

    Pappy
    Exactly, no way NFLPA lets that happen.

    People are acting like the % of a QB salary to the team cap is all-powerful, all-telling stat, it's not, not even close. The far bigger part of the total picture is how well the team does at drafting and re-stocking the team with 1st contract talent. If KC is being so drained by Mahomes' contract, why is it they are the more talented team compared to almost all others? Want to compare their OL to ours? Who's is better? Who has better DBs? Better TEs? Better skill players? But how can that be possible, since Mahomes contract is so big? Who has the better DL?

    Compared to all others? What?

    KC has the best QB in the game and a great TE. The end.

    The percent of the cap is used to debunk the idea that paying a QB destroys the roster and sets the team back. It shows that the important part of the contract is not the amount but the structure.

    Well, I believe no QB has won a Super Bowl since 1994 (Steve Young..and that's just because the salary cap started that year) with 12% threshold. I believe that's a fact. That could change with a Mahomes victory. But it is what it is until it happens. I'd like to see Mahomes win it.

    If KC wins the storyline will be how Mahommes willed a team to victory on one leg with a bunch of nobodies at WR.

    That was the story in the second half of the championship game.

    but if the Iggles treat KC the way they treated SF the storyline will be because the Iggles have Hurts on a rookie deal and can afford more playmakers.
