Joe Burrow is really on fire this season. Will be interesting how he fares against Alabama. Really looking forward for that game. Tua vs Burrow. I wonder how far he already moved up the draft boards. As of now, i would wonder if he's still available after the first 10 picks. Would he be worth giving it up if JB doesn't get it done?!
Having a solid all around squad should not be stopping you from seeking a great QB. Ironically, giving huge contract to a QB that is not worth it, might actually make building a great all around roster long-term much harder. We are lucky right now that we are getting all-pro type of performances from players on rookie contracts, but this is not something you should rely on in the long-term, because soon enough those will need to be paid and if you give Brissett 30M+ this will make it hard to fill in the voids.
Our situation cap-wise right now is NOT the norm. Good rosters sooner or later have to get paid and the money will dry out so you will have to choose where to be strong and where you are going to go into the bargain bin. This is the whole point of having to decide whether Jacoby is worth the money or not. We should have no problem paying huge money to a franchise QB. We should have huge problem paying big money to a player that's in the non-franchise QB category.
