Default Stafford to make more than Brady in '09?

I read on Yahoo that he's going to make a bigger paycheck than Marsha. Now, don't get me wrong, I think Brady is a big chunk hype to go with only just better than average talent, and if he had to play on about 25 other teams he'd have nowhere NEAR the numbers he's been putting up, but he HAS won super bowls and he HAS put up big numbers.

What has Stafford done?

I've still got MS at even odds that he totally busts in the NFL, especially since he'll be starting fresh out of the gates on a bad Lions team.

They have GOT top adopt the NBA rookie structure soon...this is just idiocy.

Sad but true... I look forward to the day when there's a rookie structure in place. That will actually place real value on the first 5 picks.

They'll fix this with the new agreement. That's one of the reasons a lot of Juniors jumped up to the NFL this year, the fear of the Rookie Cap next year had them chomping at the bit to make their money now.

Notice how nobody posted this even tho it's been out for a couple days? It's cuz we all dont give a crap about Brady and Stafford . Stafford isnt going to be worth half of that.

That is what is wrong with the NFL salaries. They should have a rookie wage and if you prove you are worth it, then you get paid. They are guys who have great NFL careers and not make as much as some of these rookies who are out of the league in 3 years.

Take the 2005 draft. The top 7 players really have not proved anything in the NFL. Some are decent players, but none of them have proved to be worth what they were paid under their rookie deals.

1. Alex Smith
2. Ronnie Brown
3. Braylon Edwards
4. Cedric Benson
5. Cadillac Williams
6. Pacman Jones
7. Troy Williamson

The worst part is it's GUARANTEED money. The dude may never play a single down of football and make multiple millions...it's just a ridiculous situation.

Really, the joke is on everyone else. This dude may suck open ass, but he can retire at 24 and end up with more money than 99% of the rest of us ham-n-eggers will make in our entire lifetime...

These ridiculous salaries are why drafting high is more of a disadvantage to the weaker teams than the advantage it was intended to be.

Its just a matter of time before the first team on the clock skips thier turn. They could have signed 4-5 decent players for what they paid this kid. Something has to give. This system is flawed to say the least.

I believe Detroit WAS trying to trade down but they couldn't find any takers. In fact, I heard that the first TEN teams were ALL trying to trade down...not sure how valid that is, but I can certianly understand given that those teams are pretty much handcuffed into GIANT contracts for the players they drafted simply based on their draft position.
