On the flip side, The one year offer sheet presents a difficult challenge for Pittsburgh. Should Pittsburgh match the offer, they could risk losing Sanders a year from now with no compensation in return. That makes me believe that they could opt to simply take New England's third round pick now........
So, BB may know that, know how Colbert thinks, know it' a deep WR draft, etc, but BB want a younger vet with experience.
Regardless, it's an interesting little game of cat and mouse here.
Colbert has been a very good GM overall, even if screwing up in recent drafts. The other thing is, just because he take the pick and lets Sanders walk, it' not like it appears like they're rebuilding on the fly because Sander was the 3rd WR there anyway.
I will laugh my balls off if they let him walk, because Tony and Mazz are on there acting like BB is an idiot for not going high enough.
They couldn't wait to get that agenda out there. 30 minute into their show and that's all they've been hammering on like two little hyenas.
Rustt Please please call up these idiots felger and mazz and put them straight. They are still babbling about the patriots only offering 1 year and 2.5. Mazz mentions that if Sanders does sign we risk the chance of him leaving after one year, But he neglects to mention that in all Likelyhood if the steelers match the steelers risk loosing him next year also which makes the Third RD pick all the more attractive.
Yep. I can't really call in since I am on the phone on and off during the day, but it would be kind of funny if someone from this board (using their board name) did.
2.5 million is the number which is a lot more than 1.2 that Pitt currently has him on for. They were lying earlier saying NE was offering only 1.5. They lie and don't get the strategy.
That's a good number. I suggested 3 2 weeks ago. Then you see how he looks in camp, assuming he looks good and then be aggressive with a deal for 3-4 years.
You want to make it aggressive as possible so he's not leaning to get to FA, too.
Listen to how he (Felger) just mocked "cap jail". LOL
They're such idiots. Felger just said "they can easily match" the 2.5 That would mena if they match they'll have to cut someone else they probably don't want to.
There's a lot that goes into this and the longer he's not matched, the more it will appear he's coming here.
If it's an easy match, Felger, why isn't the paperwork faxed in? Hmm? It's been 8 hours at this point and it's an easy match, right?
Im sure he(Felger) will convienantly bring up the point we just mentioned, if by the grace of god the steelers dont match and sanders ends up here. Its convienant for him(felger) to cherry picks facts that support his arguement.
