Great News For All The NFL GM's Out There, Roddy White Was Nice Enough To Offer His Expert Advice On Team Building
It's not often those that are tasked with building a 53 man roster while making the finances of it all fit under a hard cap are able to catch a break. If you aren't coming off a Super Bowl win then chances are there's no amount of transactions that you can fiscally complete that will satisfy the entirety of your fan base. That's why it had to be feel like Christmas morning when NFL General Managers woke up, rubbed the crust from their eyes, logged onto Twitter, and saw the all-knowing Roddy White reminding them that paying good quarterbacks a lot of money is actually really, really dumb. Time to loosen those belts and celebrate number crunchers, because you can now clear the 18-24 million generally reserved for the most important position on the field off the books! Enjoy that sigh of relief and embrace the prospects of your franchise's future, because finding someone to lead your offense in what has become a league in which success is predicated on the passing game is now a concern of the past!
Who cares that the two teams in the Super Bowl had otherworldly offenses and otherwise ordinary defenses? If the NFL is supposed to be a copycat league then why were the higher ups so quick to dismiss the team building philosophy of championship teams from a decade and half ago? It's not like the sport has changed at all since then. I mean, even that certified scrub Russell Wilson has a ring because of how well Seattle built around a complete bust of a third round pick. If I had a word of advice it would be to heed the suggestion of the retired receiver with no hardware and ignore undeniable results, because winning without a great quarterback is so easy that approximately 3-5 teams in NFL history have done it.
P.S. Roddy White can't even argue his damn point correctly. Peyton Manning and his pool noodle of an arm won a Super Bowl a year ago and he didn't think that was a topical enough example to bring up?
