AH HA! And you're a fellow Cubs fan ta boot! That is excellent!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I think it's important to look for value in everything you do. Last year, I laughed and I laughed when Syder gave him 100 million. It was too much money, and it was way too much money guaranteed in the first year.
Haynesworth is a different value today than he was a year ago. 3 years, 16 million is quite a bit different than 7 /100. Haynesworth is a unique talent. He didn't have the greatest statistical year last year, but his value has seldom shown up on his stats as much as it shows up on his team's.
So, in summary, Haynesworth is a value right now because the probability that he will outperform the money left on the contract and the third round pick is high. Further, the Bears are a team that is set up to utilize his talents to the fullest. Is it possible that he'll come in and suck it up? Sure. If that happens, you lose a bit of money, and a third round pick. Hurts a little. If he comes in motivated he gives the Bears a chance to dominate the line of scrimmage unlike anything we've seen here in recent years. With the offensive capabilities of our division rivals, dominating the line of scrimmage would seem to be a trait to pursue.
Tommie Smith is a fictional character I created. His stats for the last two years parallel Tommie Harris's production.
I thought I could pull it over on all of you, but you are apparently too smart. Congratulations.
