He does have really ****ty musical taste though.

haha I saw something he posted when I went today and it didn't look my taste either. I'm sure he's a nice enough dude. It just gets my goat that he jacked that and gave Waldo credit for a while until he became e-scouting-famous for it and stopped.

Interesting that we outbid for both the smiths

You saying that UFA players will come to GB if there is more $$ in the offer?   Shocking development

It's almost as if that's the biggest factor in free agency...

Since we're doing this again and I feel strawmanned lol. I'm the one who believes it's harder to get guys here than other spots. I never said money isn't the most important. I kept repeating all things being equal, most guys will go somewhere else. But nobody seems to understand that's possible

I mean I'm not shocked, I just thought it was interesting we actually outbid for both guys for once

Just seems like a really implausible situation. Like when are you going to have 2 teams bidding and they both cap out at the same dollar amount? 99 times out of a hundred one team will just offer more than the other team to secure the player.

I dont really care about the money. We can afford Preston and Z - and - (apparently) they're the players GB targeted.

Perhaps there's a reason:
Smith - last 4 years - 64 games played - 16 games each season.
Z - last 4 years - 58 games played - 15, 13, 14, 16  games each season.
Houston - last 4 years - 43 games played - 11, 5, 15, 12 games each season.

Houston's 4 years older (30) and has played (approx) a seasons worth of games less than Z (15 games) and a season+ games less than Smith (21 games).

Cant say who's gonna have more sacks, TFL's or QB pressures in 2019 - but odds are Houston wont see the field as many games as either Smith or Z and being able to stay on the field has value IMO.
