It reminded me of what the redskins payed hanyesworth. I mean, Mario was talented and not after the money, unlike Hanyesworth; however, teams should pay their own players that much money.
Not to kick them while they are down but even before the signing I didn't like that. Or Marc Anderson... it was nice that they finally spent some money and brought some free agents in to give the fans some hope about but you have to have the right front office when spending. They could have had 3-5 good players for the amount they spent on Mario and Marc. Could have got some ILBs, another CB, etc.

Yes, and people have been saying how great the OL has been. Yes, they have been dominant in the run game and pretty good against the pass but this is what I wanted to see. You give Alex time to throw and he will do well. Even when we weren't giving up sacks in the past Alex didn't have a whole lot of times where he had 3 plus seconds. He had to escape. I hope this is the game that the OL finally takes it to the next step. Would love to see more games where Alex has all day back there. And I mentioned this a while back... you don't see many times at all where Alex had time to sit back there like Brees or Brady does. Today he did. And that's part of the reason Brady and Brees are so good. They have time to throw in the pocket and on a few occasions a game they can just stand there for like 5-8 seconds.... eventually someone will get open.
