Re: Flacco got paid
It's all relative.
Matt got a quickie after week 1 and it reflects his standing with the ownership.
Flacco got a ton of money after the Super Bowl because...well, he helped them win the damn Super Bowl.
Therefore, it's all relative. Only the dollar amounts are different. Both Schaub and Flacco could end up being QBs who had deep trust from their ownership and then possibly end up hitting the curb after a few bad seasons.
The only difference is one guy won a SB title and got a lot of money, the other guy won a playoff game and has "the potential to get his team to the SB."
It's all relative. Except for that huge ass ring he'll get for the SB win.
