On the greater topic of cost...a league MVP type of player will make serious bank. It's ok to pay those guys because they are worth it. Where you get into trouble is paying guys like David Carr top dollar (or Mario Williams) and getting average player return on investment (c-Buffalo). When you do this kind of stuff you end up letting quality go to keep overpaid crap.
True. However, bad and mediocre teams often have to overpay to get players. It's the vicious cycle of bad team-itis. The Texans were on that treadmill for several years, and the Bills are currently there. Chicago passed on Mario because they could.
