It doesn't seem as if "accuracy" has much to do with this list! Not only in this list but The List itself seems to be BS to me. YES! I AM biased and NO , there is NO QB who "should" be making MORE than Our OWN #9 but again, I AM very biased and would only allow Tom Brady to make more than Drew given that , IMHO, Brady was born with a horseshoe up his rectum but the guy can put the ball in playmakers hands and I do wish Drew would throw his guys open so they could do MORE after the catch and allow their talents to really roll but hey! What more do we really need? Also, $25 vs $35 Mil?? After $10 Mil? Who's counting? But that's The Chalmette in me since to me? It just becomes a lot of money vs a lot more money and I'd be happy with half of ANY of it, but that's me and all I really need is for my wife to be happy, my kids safe and healthy and $10 mil rolling in on a regular basis and I'm GOOD Ya''ll! But I'm no NFL QB who must have others negotiate for me and then pay all of the "hangers on" who surround me and ALL looking for more for themselves. I realize that's used for write off of taxes and necessary when the Money is that high but still. I'd rather make that kind of bread being a Vet and saving some child's puppy or something like that. So different does as different is, I suppose? Just get me close to around $10 Mil per year for about 15 years and I won't make a peep about anything except what I do now and THAT is to complain about TAXES and where that money goes! Seems THAT will never change, does it? I didn't think so! Stay Funky, Frosty , Safe , Healthy and Happy! Cheers to The WHODAT Nation as The NFL has lost a lot of it's luster for me lately. How about you all? Feeling any different about The League and then having to explain everything about "the taking a knee business"? I'd much prefer some other form of protest which doesn't need to be explained away or disrespects our Military ! I realize now that that's NOT what their point is but in the beginning and really that entire first year I didn't know it wasn't against America so I got hot about it. Anyway, I'm way off point here so I'll drop it. I also think no one should host our fanbase all together as like usual since that's too many Cajuns to go down with this Flu ! The WHODAT NATION can NOT sustain such a massive hit the likes of some massive outbreak and putting so many of our WHODAT NATIONALS on sick leave! No WAY! The Yuckaneers, Dirty Birds and Panites? No problem! Our WHODAT Community? NO WAY!

How is it BS if it's their salary? It's not a list of players who should be making X amount of dollars, it's a list of who are making X amount of dollars.

Hard to laugh at that when he beat the Saints in the playoffs.
Actually it’s hilarious that he is taking up so much of their salary cap and it’s completely irrelevant that he was quarterbacking the Vikings team that beat us. It’s a bit of a stretch to claim that “he” beat the Saints in that game.

D Carr better step up his game. Especially at his salary & not to mention the Raiders hadn't had a winning record since 2016.
