Yes, the contract is indeed an albatross. However, if I remember correctly, the majority on here were shouting for "this poverty franchise" and "cheap Michael Bidwill" to pay what Kyler and his agent were demanding.(despite all the red flags from the horrific collapse just weeks prior)
No doubt this franchise and ownership often deserve criticism for being frugal.(to put it kindly, lol) However, the decision to throw money at Keim, Kliff and Kyler is a significant reason why the situation is so dire at the moment.
I admit, I also don't quite understand the extreme pessimism and at times insults on here directed at Gannon who hasn't even coached a single game for us yet. Perhaps he and his young staff do well, or perhaps they will suck. Time will tell. The uncertainty is preferable to the alternative of Kliff and Vance Joseph for another season though.
