We need him to keep on the path Haley started him on. Get rid of football, live to fight another play.

Of course he does
No one ... he and Brady et al are going to leave 20m+ a year on the table at the young age of late 30s, 40. Especially in a league looking desparateky for and protecting good QBs

It's a golden age of QB play, though. There are more competent NFL QBs now than at any time I can remember going back 30 years. By the start of 2018 season, there might not be any team with an absolutely incompetent boob playing QB-- just 3-4 years ago half the league was without a QB.

It's the golden age of rules favoring the passing game.

There's always a new flavor of the month. Hasn't been another consistently great QB since Ben/Rivers/Rodgers/Ryan came into the league. Many pretenders, though.

If not for the rules favoring the passing game, I actually think we're in a drought not terribly different from the Cowher era.

Ben, Rivers, Brees, Rodgers, Eli,

Alex Smith
Ryan
Stafford
Wilson
Cam Newton
Andrew Luck
Wentz
Cousins
Bradford
Carr

Now the next wave of above competent:
Prescott, Watson, Goff, Mariota, Garoppolo, Foles, Keenum, Trubisky, Winston, Mahomes

When the fringe guys are Bortles, Tyrod Taylor, Dalton, Flacco, Tannehill, McCown... the league is pretty strong

You kind of made my point. Those guys pretty much suck - anyone can win a SB, but it's not very likely. How many SB's, much less titles on that list? Most of those guys will never sniff a SB unless the stars align. Half of them can't even take their team to the playoffs.

You're making an argument about numbers, which the league is set-up to produce passing numbers these days. But most of those guys are Neil O'Donnell types (especially Stafford) at best if they're playing 20 years ago. Alex Smith might as well be Mike Tomczak.

Prescott, Watson and Winston definetely don't belong. An argument could be made that Wilson and Mariota don't either. Bortles, Dalton, Flacco and Tannehill are all pretty good though.

Yeah, I really don't buy this "golden age of QB" stuff....It's the golden age of the passing game, after rules changes to attract casual fans and fantasy football. Outside of a handful of guys, most of those QB's are completely mediocre in the game 20 years ago. Hell, most of them are mediocre today, they just pile up some nice numbers in a pass-happy league.

It's certainly easier to throw the ball today than at any time in the past, that's for sure.
