60--- I love ya, but there are reasons to have a tiny bit of caution when it comes to Carson.

He had a very serious knee, (and he depends on his legs quite a bit even in the pocket)he has (for the 2nd time I understand) a back issue!

He has missed probably as many games as he has played in (Just guessing)!

And as we know backs can be a bitch and they CAN be recurring!

Nobody is suggesting that we trade him or make drafting a new QB a priority---- but there are some justifiable reasons to be a little (a tiny bit) cautious.

Haven't heard anybody say it was a bad deal.

Yeah, I know. Those tall lanky guys can have problems with hits from the side. The back is concerning but when it comes down to it you have no choice but sign him. I'm not anymore worried about him than anybody else though but we all do know that the QB is ultra important. Maybe we should be more worried about our backup who everybody thinks we could get the farm for LOL!

Default Plus when you look at the contract it's a good deal for the Birds

We needed to get the deal done now. The closer we get to a new CBA and higher salary caps because of gambling the more this would have cost. Once we get past the new CBA we will be in great position to add & renew players around Carson, assuming he stays healthy.

Have to see once the true numbers come out on the deal (the reports are all over the place) Really the big thing is the signing bonus. I would bet Howie setup this thing up so it has option years which means if Wentz can't shake the injury bug they could get out of it. On the flip side if Wentz stays healthy this is a good deal overall.

The big thing here is we have our QB for at least the next six seasons

Iím doing this from memory. Wentz played 16 in year one. He played 13 in year 2. He played 9 in season 3. So thatís 38 out of 48. Most other top QBs have missed games and seasons. Hopefully he never gets hurt again.

Throw in playoff games and it is a bit closer, and as I said I was just guessing.... letís do the same math on just the most recent 2 years plus playoff games....... the exact math wasnít my point. Sheeeeeeez.

I know. We all seem to forget that Carson played all 16 his rookie year. Then if you stretch it out he played about 12 or 13 in a row the next year too before he went down for the first time. He had almost 30 straight healthy games but all that we remember is him going down the last 2 years. It's just so damn deflating when you lose your QB. It's like a shot to the gut and that's all that you remember.

I think getting this deal done before:

Goff
Dak
Mahommes
Chicago kid

Was critical. Make them all pay more including the Dak deal.
