In the latest BGN Radio podcast, Jimmy Kempski and I try ... and fail ... to make sense of the Philadelphia Eagles signing Joe Flacco for $3.5 million guaranteed. We pretend we’re in court and counter the following rebuttals in defense of the move:
- But he’s going to be a mentor!
- He only got 1.5 million last year because he was coming off herniated disk surgery. He’s more betterer now!
- Who would you have signed instead?
- They’re not going to draft a quarterback at 6th overall now (viewed as a positive for the “we don’t want a QB at 6th overall” crowd).
