    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"

    “you don’t luv Lamar” - Lamar

    You know he had his fake “I’m smart”
    glasses on to write that too.

    He could also wait a year while playing under the tag and see what Burrow, Herbert, and Hurts sign for in the near future. If he wants that big payday, it also might do him some good to play a full season, and at a higher level than what we have seen in 2021 and 2022. He's banking on his 2019 MVP season still being relevant in 2023. As I have said before, not many owners will back up a brinks truck to his door based on his current form. I know all he needs is 1 fish to hook, but good luck with that. It hasn't worked so far.

    I think this is exactly what Lamar's strategy and thought process is.

    if he can be an UFA when those contracts get signed, he will be in great position for his own mega-deal.
    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.

    I agree, but it would look funny if Burrow signs a team-friendly deal for less guaranteed than what LJ thinks he himself deserves. That could end up backfiring on poor Lamar.

    I think NJ brought up a good point.

    My guess is that "not playing under the tag" really means "sitting out for as long as possible while still getting the accrued season" so coming back in week 10.

    But who knows. Maybe doing the nuclear option on your relationship with the team forces their hand (worked for Brown).

    Only if he plays like 2019, not fall short and not play down the stretch again, then he's f----ked.

    That’s definitely not how I determine a qbs worth or abilities.
    I’m guessing nobody does or the draft would be filled with just players from the top 4 college teams.
    How is it possible to have the best owner, best front office, best gm, best HC, good/great drafts every year and good FA acquisitions every year, but only have 3 playoff wins in 14 years?

    I’m willing to wager that sitting out a year will cost him dearly.

    I think that Lamar doesnt have the big deal yet because he doesnt have an agent. But I dont think it has anything to do with his worth or his ability to negotiate. Think about what it would do to the sports agent business and the relationships teams have with those agents if Lamar Jackson gets a huge deal without an agent.
