Re: Steelers' Alan Faneca: I'll Play Devil's Advocate
"Yeah, but ... offensive linemen aren't worth that much money."
Not true. An elite offensive lineman is worth that much. Everything in football begins with the protection and blocking an offensive line provides; without that a team has nothing.
"Even if some other team is dumb enough to pay them that much, they're not worth it."
What other teams pay their players has a direct impact on the market value of all players at that position, whether or not they are worth it.
