A bit much, but its Dan Snyder. Hes good at overpaying for people.

That is a lot. But more power to him, I think it is pretty obvious he is not a head coach, might as well make as much money as an OC as possible.

I feel good about Solari.

Saunders deserves every dime of that money. I'm just glad that he went to the NFC vs. going to Oakland.

Why did we let him go? He is worth the money-damm we are so cheap sometimes.

He is worth that much no doubt. How much do you guys think Snyder is paying the security at the stadium?

If Carl and Hermie really wanted him to stay as OC, they would have offered to pay him.

But I doubt that Al would have come back to KC unless the money was an incredibly rediculous sum.

If they had offered the same amount, or a little more, he would have told Carl to go **** himself, I'm sure.

I would have told Carl to go **** himself, specially after the way he treated Al.

how long do coordinators usually last on a team? If Al only signed a 2 year deal, that would have made 7 years. It's rare a head coach lasts that long. I've come to the conclusion it was time for Al to move on. Of course that is to my advantage :)

Hey Halfcan. Take a wild guess at who has had one of, if not the highest, paid coaching staff in NFL the last couple seasons.

Just think, if we took Junior Siavii's signing bonus from last year we could have kept Saunders for 1k a year more.

Seems fair to me considering Williams got almost 8 millon for 3 years.

Do you even know what you typed? We have had the highest paid coaching staff in the league for a few years. I would hardly say that we are cheap when it comes to paying coaches. Hell, look at Herm Edwards, we went out and basically stole him from the Jets and almost doubled his salary.

Now how exactly did he treat Al again? Maybe Al should go tell all 10 owners who passed on him this year to go **** himself, especially the ones who actually gave him an interview. How dare they!
