I wouldn't say trashed. We "thought" we were Super Bowl contenders. Gotta pay to play.
I still think Schaub's contract was just shy of genius. He evaluated Matt correctly, recognized the risks, & provided several outs for himself. Flacco, Ryan, Romo, Cutler.... at the time, I wouldn't have taken any of those for Schaub & those teams married themselves to those QBs. Flacco, maybe. But I wouldn't have given him the money he got for sure. Somewhere between what Schaub got & what Flacco got.
We can cut Schaub (& several others) for a net gain in 2014. We can use the June 1st option & it's a big gain.
