Really strong game by Savage, except for that pass into double coverage to Hopkins in the EZ at the end of the game.
And that was Clowneys worst game of the year, damn big fella get your head out of your ass.

Definitely Savage's best game and real improvement shown. If he wanted a job as a backup at close to league minimum next year I'd bring him back. I definitely wouldn't say really strong game though. We scored 13 points against a team that is 25th in DVOA and bottom half in scoring defense. Moving the ball for passing yards is better than not moving the ball, but turning it into points is what QBs get paid for.

C'mon Barrett quit being such a hard-azz, Savage played well and threw some excellent passes yesterday except I will admit that pass at the end was ill advised. And he's not gonna be anywhere next year for or at close to the league mimimun, the kid is gonna get paid.
But JD Clowneys performance was disappointing, especially for who is probably the best football player in the state of Texas. He had like 3 or 4 offsides.

You are way overestimating the market for Savage. Savage has 5 career TDs, a negative TD to INT ratio, the most fumbles in the league even though he hasn't played half the games, and is a career 58% passer. He'll be a 5th year player next year and minimum for a 5th year guy is $775,000.

My guess is Savage gets a short term deal for about $1 million a year. If that is the market then I don't mind bringing him back as the backup (I'd add another young guy somehow as well). If somebody wants to overpay him I'll gladly wish him luck elsewhere.

Either way I'm not understanding where you get the idea he's going to get paid next year. He's accomplished nothing in his 4 year career. He's been constantly hurt, he's got terrible accuracy, no pocket awareness, and prior to this season he managed to get 3 starts in 3 years for a team that started 8 QBs during that time. Add to that he was never projected as more than a backup QB at any time before or after entering the NFL.

Here is a list of guys who signed in the neighborhood I'm talking about (all of whom have track record and pedigree equal to or better than Savage).

Gabbert 1 year $895,000
Geno Smith 1/$1.2 million
EJ Manuel 1/$800,000
Kellen Moore 1/$775,000

Savage receives.

I have two networks
so my son can watch his shows
while I watch the game.

Occasionally
I get up to 60 megs
but the throughput sucks.

Nunu's as confused
as ever because he thinks
I live in San Juan.

You know I was confused until my good friend Barrett took me aside and explained your situation to me, which is of course that you are a long-time River Oaks resident along with your next door neighbors the McNair family.
But he also explained to me about how you'd bought this property in PR as sorta a vacation retreat for your domestic help.
See now there's a feel good Christmas story about being charitable with ones fellow man, in this case some of his employees but you know just the Chuckster being the Chuckster.

Speaking of good Christmas stories, what with the 2017 season basically over, sure seems like a good time for chuck to fire up the wayback prose machine... either that or we go back to the haiku contest.

I was going to tell a story about one of the countless times Cal and I played board games in his parent's den but then I remembered how it ended and you know how I hate to embarrass the McNair family so I thought better of it. Maybe I'll just make something up instead.
