Also, I really don't like the idea that every time another GM does something, it automatically means GB must react to that - it's like other teams are deciding how much we pay Rodgers. Yoop mentioned how much some of the other guys are getting. But IMO, that doesn't mean those guys are worth that - it just means that some GM's out there are pretty stupid. Don't like the idea that because other teams run their franchises into the ground means GB has to do the same.
Would actually be in favor of going with some certain % of cap, and THAT'S IT. Makes sure we're protected if the cap should contract (with declining ratings, there's no guarantee the next NFL TV contracts will be as large), and also ensures that one guy doesn't end up with half our cap space (i.e., makes sure there's room to build a team around him).
