Trying to understand Shanny and the Danny are next to impossible, because they way they think in some ways is out of this world.

Think back to the McNabb contract extension.

McNabb is under fire and they extend his contract with one that they can easily get out from underneath. Why renew it in the first place? Did a phony vote of confidence really help anyone?

Without the details of Haz's and Smith's contracts, we have no idea what it means.

Coaches contracts don't count under the salary cap, so McNabb's extension and Hazlet's wouldn't be for the same reasons.


Jim Haslett will stay the season ... His contract “extension” allows the skins to dump him after the season for no extra money owed(that should have been a red flag for Jim, but oh well).


This came from Hailredkins.com. Don't know how credible the guy is, but I read his newsletters that he sends.

Do they know what Haslett (and/or his agent) thought about the contract? Why the "should have"? It's possible he wasn't happy with it but decided to sign anyway as right now this is undoubtedly his best option.
