Eh, I still wouldn't call him an elite quarterback. The dude isn't even top 5.
He's won a Super Bowl and led his team to the playoffs the past 4 years, he's not exactly crap either
right. He is a good QB and now their identity is set. Since they have a good QB locked up, they can focus all their attention on getting and or maintaining a high level of play from Defense and Running.
In any given NFL season there really is only less than 20 good QB's playing. The rest is either a QB on the decline, being developed or a cheap place holder.
So I say when you got a proven good one, with more years ahead of him then behind him.....don't cheap out. You don't need an elite QB to win ships....you just don't want to be saddled with one of these year in and year out...
The rest is either a QB on the decline, being developed or a cheap place holder.
btw the Niners have being rolling with the latter 2 for about 7 years now. I would kill for Eli Manning
