    Loyalty, a subjective quality at best, no longer matters in the NFL. The bottom line is the bottom line. Flacco and many others have demonstrated that it is not the actual amount, but just that my contract is bigger than your contract. Can you only "feed your family" on $120 mil and not $110 mil? Pitta's first responsibility is to himself, not Baltimore.

    Now, now, Striker. Let's be fair. Alex Smith is NOT the reason the 9ers lost in the NFC championship last year. He played quite well. And this year, he didn't do anything to lose the starting job other than get a concussion. Who's to say the 9ers wouldn't have still made it to the Superbowl had Smith been starting all year? Who's to say he wouldn't have had better composure and played a better first half than Kaepernick?

    I guess we'll never know. Regardless, Smith has developed into a pretty good NFL QB. He may never be "worthy" of that number one pick, but I won't knock him.

    Good to see him wanted. Good to see a BYU guy who won the Super Bowl and get a TD in the Super Bowl. When is that #1 draft choice of some other team even going to play in the big game, let alone win it?

    Agreed NevadaCoug

    How much is enough? Putting down the ego and taking a contract for half as much allows for you (the QB) to lead a much more talented group. I mean, if you are responsible with money, half the contract would leave enough for you, your family, and future generations. But no, there has to be the 10 million dollar home, a ten car garage full of collectors items, bling bling everywhere, and on and on. That is great except the Ravens will stink now, Joe Flacco loses credibility on the field, and Ravens fans suffer because of one man's infection with the sickness of greed.

    Flacco signed a big contract that is contributing to salary cap-related personnel losses. How soon until that contract is a major albatross? Not because Flacco is a bad quarterback, but because the Ravens won't be able to afford to put a good team around him?

    Will Pitta sign the 'loyalty' tender?

    Your John Elway comment was comical. Go back and look at his actions coming out of Stanford. Do you know who drafted him?
