Do you think Payton gets more than $10m a year?
He deserves every penny. This team is worthless without him. It is painfully evident. If he was here right now, combined with the D improving like it is, we would be in the playoffs.
And Coach salary doesnt effect cap room, so any fan of our team who doesnt want him paid a dollar more than anyone else will offer him is a stupid mother fricker. Benson will pay that man a truck load of cash because:
1. We need him
2. Benson is rich as frick
3. It doesnt effect cap room
4. We dont win games without him
5. We cant play clutch without him
6. Drew cant focus after a mistake without him
7. Play calling is disgusting without him
8. Pierre Thomas is inexplicably on the sidelines without him.
9. Benson is rich as frick and coach salaries in no way at all affect cap room or player salaries, so who gives a shite what a fat rich old man decides to pay our superbowl winning, only reason we are a contender, coach.
10. Without him this team is a formula one racecar without a driver.
