(Sports Illustrated)   Eagles QB Jalen Hurts is earning $1 million a year. That may seem like a lot to us Farkers, the last 3 teams to lose to the Eagles are spending a combined $99 million on their QBs this year   (si.com) divider line

If he keeps playing like this, they'll be throwing money at him in the offseason.

Rookie deals fark over the rookies who weren't part of the union negotiations.

He's quite the bargain.

Yes, the easiest way for teams to be good is to have really good QBs on rookie deals.

Yeah he is going to feast on my boys this week. I still see him as a liability who won't last the whole season.

Yeah because you can surround them with actual talent instead of whatever scraps are left after you give it all to the QB.

You'd think owners and GMs would've figured this out by now, but, alas, they haven't.

Several teams are able to do both those things and field a very competitive team. The ones that can't... Well, there really are only a certain amount of really outstanding offensive linemen. Many of them even take a pay cut to be on teams with a great QB and a chance to win in the Playoffs and hit all their bonuses.

Premium QB play is worth premium salary, the problem is finding premium QB talent isn't easy. If it was as easy as finding a runningback, you would see a lot more teams just going with 1st contract QBs.

This just demonstrates the importance for a team to take advantage of a QB still on his rookie contract. If Hurts continues to play well, he'll be one of the $30 million + QBs and the Eagles will be scrambling to afford other top players.

I've never understood this, you would think that every team would get the biggest, baddest linemen they can and stick "system" people in.  Look at Mark Rypkien and Phill Simms.

The real trick is to find a QB that
1) Has a wife richer than him
2) Has a side hustle marketing quack medical products that he can sell to the team for a tidy profit

Then they can take contracts for less football money and stay just as rich

This is a more difficult way of doing things because a) it's harder to evaluate individual talent vs the work for the rest of the line, b) tons of OL get injured every year...idk if anyone has their whole line stay healthy for an entire season, c) elite LTs are very expensive on their own; paying five great OL is more expensive than paying a great QB
