Definitely gas prices. I live in the Bay Area, and the 49ers and Raiders can both suck just as bad as they want without costing me a couple hundred bucks a month.

His gauranteed money is almost as much as our Super Bowl winning QB's......and that's bullcrap.

They need a rookie cap, because a lot of these guys won't be worth the contracts they signed.

In football terms he wasn't...but in blowouts with the media terms he was worth every freaking penny.

I think Blank's misunderstanding of the CBA made this happen.
http://ap.google.com/article/ALeqM5h...yyoxwD90POTUO0


Blank was concerned about the rule regarding a 30% increase in player's salaries, but it doesn't apply to rookie contracts.

I think Blank and Matt Millen should team up, they'd make a perfect pair.
