    That's wishful thinking. Mahomes got the biggest deal in football at the time. And he's in the Super Bowl right now. Why? Because his GM obviously knows what he's doing (in Super Bowl 3 out of 4 years) and the cap just got raised which is going to help KC even more.
    Sure.. because Mahomes is probably the best QB of this generation. Look at the rest of them instead of the outlier.

    For every Mahomes you have 7 QB’s making tons of money who aren’t winning jack.

    and if Philly dog walks them like the Bucs a few years ago people will blame the lack of talent as the reason why.
    I lost a bet about Najee gaining 1300 yards.

    "Our head coach has failed to win a playoff game for seven years in a row. 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"

    Guys like Dak and Derek carr are getting $40m+. Jared Goff is at $33m. The expectation is just too high for QB salaries and is killing cap space for a lot of teams...

    Last year, the Chiefs had to let go of arguably the best WR in the league - and when they gave Mahommes the contract, they overhauled the o-line with rookies and steelers-types, mid-levels on the o-line.

    To me, where we presently are feels a little like when the RB salaries hit a ceiling and they re-established the market. If Burrow does go through with his plan, I think it could be the start of re-establishing the QB market
    and the story after the KC win was how they did it with no WR’s to end the game.

    if KC’s wins it won’t be a blueprint for teams to model, it will be an example of a QB being a freak of nature and carrying his team on his back.

    That's very possible.
    But Mahomes is in the Super Bowl. His salary has not inhibited them from winning. And Derek Carr is about to get cut and be lucky to make half of that 40 mil. Dak was an over payment too. You don't think the owners don't see this?

    I think it's killing cap space for teams that don't know how to build regardless of the QB's salary.

    I don't think Daniel Jones is getting 48 mil a year and neither is Geno Smith. The owners will put the brakes to average guys getting above and beyond contracts. They'll talk amongst themselves about it..even thou they pretend that they don't.

    Sure. It only takes a Mahomes-type QB at market rate to make the SB. Problem is, there is only one of him. The rest of the league needs to build a team around their QBs.

    KC still needs to build around Mahomes and they are pretty good at it. They were down 3 WRs and still won the AFCC game. Their D isn't all world, but it's good enough, paired with Mahomes and that offense. They rank 16th but are right about even with Pgh on most stats. And they are in the Super Bowl, withOUT being the most expensive D in the NFL; something to learn from, Art?

    Sure. A defense that played against 3 backup OL. They won the game because of Mahomes (and Kelce). Everything else went along for the ride.

    The defense held borrow from scoring 2 times late in the game. We all know what the Steelers defense would have done.

    We should start calling you northcoastzz

    Hilton is a 1-trick pony, great at blitzing. It is a good trick. Coverage skills, not so much.

    yup, and the Steelers agree.

    that's why we allowed him to leave in free agency.
    Steel Maniac's Time-Based Prediction: Lamar Jackson will be a bust and total flop in the NFL.

    What Actually Happened: Lamar Jackson became the youngest two-time NFL MVP winner ever.
