Once this happens, say good bye defense. That's all the non NFC West teams are--explosive high dollar offenses with s**tty defenses since there's not enough cap space to have anything more than a serviceable defense, which in AFC terms are a bunch of high-resistance turnstiles.
We're not the only team in the NFC West that's going to face this issue. On the Shehags, Baby Jesus and Whoopi Sherman are going to want mega contracts and so something has to give. With QBs being payed so much, owners and coaches want to protect their investment, so they're going to have to protect his blind side with a top-tier guard and give him at least one elite target to throw the ball to. Then it's, "Hello, Lions/Cowboys." The days of dominant defenses may be a thing of the past.
But hey, we wanted an explosive, high-reward QB so, whatever...
