On this point, we can completely agree. Pouncey's play last year was mediocre due I assume in large part because of his health and the need to limit his practice time to allow him to finish the season. That's the kind of fact that justifies agreeing to a lower salary if anything. Certainly not a raise. Given Tannenbaum's history, I'm just surprised he didn't agree to it.
Finally, a couple of moves I agree with. I like Sitton a lot. #5 rated guard last year by PFF. Huge upgrade over Larsen. Kilgore was rated as the #23 center (not great but Pouncey was 27 & brittle). Plus they didn't give the farm away for him. It's almost as if Tannenbaum and company finally decided to do something that actually helps the team get better instead of worse. Who'd have thunk it?
Coming off a 6-10 season where nobody did a damn thing to warrant a raise and the douchebag wants one. I toldya you don't win w guys like this. Tanne and Jones (real leaders of men) step up and renegotiate to generate money for the team, douche wants a raise. I always have disliked this guy. Get him the hell out of here.
