    I just truly wish some of you truly understood how the cap works. It’s clear you don’t.

    The Titans will be fine and be able to sign who they need to sign. Whether those moves work out or not is the issue. Money will not be.

    Please explain...who gets cut? Restructured? FA signings to replace guys we are cutting?

    You can't just say we will be fine when the majority of us aren't cap geeks

    We don’t know what the cap is going to be yet. But already it’s doom and gloom. We can free up as much cap room as we need in order to sign who we need. They aren’t in this Armageddon scenario some are acting like we are in.

    That’s my point. Money isn’t the teams problem. It’s talent. It’s signing the right talent for the right scheme. If we were the Saints at $95 million over the rumored cap then I would agree, but we aren’t.

    I’m not a cap geek either. I’m just not worried about it. But every year teams seem to find the cap space. But predicting this team is done, can’t win the SB, won’t win the division and should start rebuilding because we don’t have the cap room the Colts have is silly.

    I must still be misunderstanding.

    I thought the minimum cap was the amount that each team must spend against the overall cap. In this case, last year the minimum amount each team had to spend (or have against the cap) was 175 mil. It's being determined that number is increasing to 180 mil.

    The overall cap on the high side could have been 198.2 mil. That just means every team had to spend between 175 and 198.
    For this year, according to that article, it seems as if all teams will have to spend between 180 mil and a yet to be determined amount but to me, it makes no sense to be less than 198.2. might not be 208, but it shouldn't be less.

    Having lots of cap room and "winning the off season" doesn't mean success, I agree but the recent hires, specifically DC, little cap unless we cut our most productive players has a few of us nervous, worried, pissed off at JRob whatever....this teams window is not huge and to waste the offensive talent on a sh*t D is not reassuring. Don't kid yourself the Colts will be a problem this year, and who knows what happens in Jax, the right person could help. Is Urban that guy? Don't know.
    Houston is a mess.

    JRob has his work cut out for him...after the past season and issues like Wilson, he's under scrutiny by some fans. And rightfully so. He has made good moves as well as bad, we'll see how it all shakes out.

    I agree with your assessment except for the window. We cant know today what that window is. THill has at least 5 years left. Brown could end up the best WR in the league. It appears to me, and I might be wrong that people are tying our window to Henry. I think that is a mistake. I think this team gets better going forward and the defense isn’t that far off. 1 or 2 players can make a huge difference,

    The cap in my estimation is going to be at minimum $200 million. The players union isn’t going to allow a cap to be dropped $20 million. They will borrow the money from the next few years for this season. The Cap going down drastically this season hurts mid range veteran players who make up the bulk in the league.

    I get what you are saying but think about it like this...

    How many more 2k yard seasons do you think we are getting from Henry?

    Then, if Henry had ran for 1500 yards this season (which would still be fantastic) what would our record had been? With that record (even taking just 1 additional loss) how does that change our playoff picture? Taking 2 or more extra losses would have left us out of the playoffs... take away 500 yards from Henry and most likely we would have had 2 or more extra losses.

    Next season if Henry runs for 1500 instead of 2k, what does that mean for us?

    Hopefully a 5K Thill season and AJ Brown finally breaking that elusive 2K receiving mark.

    :wooo:
