If I don't perform at work, the company can come to me and say "Hey, we would like to adjust your salary or your done!" Now, I may not be happy and look for employment elsewhere, but this is how it works. They don't feel obligated to pay me, because they gave me the job first before hiring a nother person. This is opposite of the "League". Teams are feeling guilty about letting older players go, starters who are getting older, and "budding" players. Players are making a stink about remaining the starter, when nothing has been accomplished by them in the first place! BS. Roethlis-whatever should start in Pittsburgh day one.....Maddox was stocking shelves, and Roeth is at least as good. Rivers should play right away. Just as good as Brees and Fluttie together. But in the case of Manning....Bench! Only his name is carrying him to start, but in the interest of money for the organization and notoriety, this guy plays! I feel all of these guys should be paid according to what they have done. Playoffs.....Get your contracted dollars, losing season, get half, less than four wins, a fourth of the contract. This will keep all of these guys on their toes, and force guys to want to get better, rather than thinking their entitled to job!
