What should he have done differently? Caved and given O'Reilly $5M early on? No one can convince me he was worth that as a 21 year old RFA and one decent offensive season of 55 points.
Agree, but why they were in such a rush to match still bugs me. If someone has 7 days to decide, I'd hope they would at least take 1. It was not like the sheet was 5yrs for 15m. Then I could see jumping on it so quickly.
