same with Philly, there was a reason they didnt want to give Desean Jackson 50 million and held out as long as they could. You dont really see them giving Jeremy Maclin a big contract after next season too? Every Chiefs fan wants him here because of that fact

These are the Dorsey/Reid type approaches, they wont pay big money for two WRs, they never have and never will

And the Packers have won Super Bowls and Andy Reid has been to a Super Bowl with this model, so that counters your Pats/Giants Super Bowl theory.
Not sure I totally agree. Young? Usually. Cheap? In 1999 the Packers made Antonio Freeman the highest paid WR. Three years ago they paid Jennings (almost $9 mil/year with $16 mil guaranteed).

In 2004 the Eagles paid Terrell Owens ($49 mil over 7 yrs) and he was already 30 years old.
