I'm not saying Shaw will try to negotiate less money. I'm saying what makes you think he can negotiate $7M & what makes you think Bob won't pay him $7M.
I'm not saying Shaw will ask for less accountability or responsibility, but what makes you think he warrants it as a first time NFL head coach & what makes you think Bob's mind is closed on the subject?
& Bob doesn't have to be Jerry. He can very well assign final say on the 53 to Shaw. Precedence has been set with Kubiak. At the same time he may bring someone in (Luck maybe) to be VP of football operations like Elway. We don't know.
But you are the one (not me) saying what Bob will & will not do & I'm just asking what are you basing your assumptions on. If you didn't write so well, and come across as an educated (wo)man, I'd have half a mind to believe you're my old friend GP who would fabricate conversations between two people who never met & allow that fictitious conversation to alter his reality, forever spiraling into a world of make believe 'til he couldn't differentiate between reality & fantasy.
But you're not that guy. Can't be.
