What are you talking about?
He is saying it was a dumb move to sign Gore and Baalke is not fit to be GM and the Yorks dont want to pay a real GM.
No I got that bit. But what is it about this deal that supports that argument?
Bad move to extend an injury prone aging running back. We could have drafted a rookie who probably could have been the same or even better. This team is in full rebuilding mode and paying a guy like Frank only prolongs the process.
It's an argument. But even in full rebuild you need some leadership, some veteran presence. This is not a huge deal and it won't drag us into Salary Cap Hell, but it is good enough to send a message to the youngsters that this club is back into looking after it's players.
Gore is good for two, maybe three years. With a real receiving threat for once from Edwards, this could be an interesting O. Won't develop on day one but during the season.
See nothing about this contract to b1tch about. If Gore sat on his butt this season or forced a trade, presumably people would be whinging about how Baalke and the front office failed. They sign Gore to a reasonable contract and guess what?
