64. Know the real numbers - not even close to 100 million.
not that it matters to some, but the numbers reported are not the whole truth.

On the surface, it's 'only' 35 million for 'sure', 80 million potential.
Actual numbers, for next 3 years, he'll take home a little less than 5 million per year after taxes, creditors, etc.
Very low for a top rated QB.
Additionally, given his playing style and penchant for injuries, he'll likely see his prime years come to an end in the next three years.
Which means he will get cut and not see this contract through.
most likely, he'll earn enough to pay off creditors and have a little left over after his playing days.
100 million?
Not even close.
He won't win, either.
The Eagles will soon find out what the Falcons did PRIOR to his arrest.
His game, while amazing to watch, does not translate in the post season or into Super Bowl wins.
He never took ATL to the Super Bowl. Chris Chandler did, in 1998.
7-9 was his last record I think as a full season ATL QB.
He collapsed last year at end of his amazing comeback season.
good defenses figure him out, eventually.
There is a cap on his potential on the field.
