Parcells last night on ESPN in reference to Shaun Alexander's declining production since he received a big contract said from a GM's perspective it isn't a good long-term decision to give a big money contract to a RB because the shelf life for a RB is generally 4 years (at peak production) and that the RB position is relatively easy to draft and replace (he used the Patriots and Colts as examples of this).

Someone needs to send a tape of this to 1 Arrowhead Dr.

Whitlock wrote that column a couple weeks ago. And neither of them are the first to say this.

Bill Parcells is a hypocrite. He signed Curtis Martin to a $36 million dollar 6 year contract in 1997.

ya, Priest & LJ did not live up to their contracts. LJ still has time but if he ever gets a good o-line again and if Brodie turns out well he will return to beast-mode.

thought the same thing, and he seemed to do ok after that.
