For the record I think he gets 2 quick ones and then he is banished to the bench never to be heard from again. I bet under.
I'm trying to be optomistic, and went under. Also, if he goes ahead and gets 2 turnovers, I hope he gets pulled. How'd he earn that extension? Because of that one superbowl he went to years ago?
I think he "earned" that extension because his cap hold for this year was over 11 million bucks. They extended him in order to lower the cap hit this year. I think neither party expects him to actually finish out this contract.
Oh....oh.. hell no. Jake has played average football even the year they went to the Superbowl. He doesn't have a strong arm, his aim is like 86 on Madden every year and I'd have to give him a B on aim myself. Can't run, Can't move in the pocket. Doesn't pick good targets...And now The Panthers have him for five more years. I'll admit I don't know much about the wheelin and dealin with contracts. So I'll ask a simple question, Why wouldn't he finish out his contract? Unless he retires then pulls a Brett , the Panthers have him for 5 yrs. No one would trade for him,especially not with that contract. Educate me...
Edited: Madden is just an example, Don't take that seriously.

Under. But I wouldn't be surprised either way.
Bill Simmons has an excellent column on him on ESPN.com this week.
And kat, it's MATT Moore, not Mike.
I dont think he can have that many again
I bet 999 woot!
Jake's cap hold this year was lowered significantly by the extension(something they were forced to do because of Julius and others being so expensive and eating their cap room). The contract is only like 40% guaranteed money, so after a couple of years they can cut him without having to pay him a lot of money and also take the savings on their cap number for that year.
