With all this talk about how we all want the number 1 pick and how everybody wants Luck, what makes you think JR wouldn't make Hurney trade out of it and aquire more later round picks to get out of paying 80 million? I mean don't get me wrong, I think Luck/Harbaugh is the best thing for us, but what if we trade it? Does anybody else get that feeling that he would do something like that?

JR has gone cheap one year out of 16, with a new CBA looming and everyone thinks it's permanent, LOL

Yeah. Seriously, can we just stop this silliness? :nonod:

Richardson took advantage of an uncapped year to dump "bad money" and hopefully set us up for years to come. But in prior years, we've had a team that's had little to no cap room. Why? Because we were spending it.

And for all the consternation, we're not even the lowest spending team in the league this year (seven or eight teams are below us, if I recall correctly).

Yet numerous people whose memories apparently don't extend further back than this past offseason whine about Richardson being cheap :nonod:

To me it seems like the money we paid Peppers and Delhomme last year shell shocked him, but I guess we will have to wait until next year to see for sure.

This thread was a FAIL, I'm sorry :(

I've heard the rookie cap is almost a done deal..

Considering it's something both the players and owners want..

It's pretty the only thing they agree on at this point, from what I've heard..

You're not the only one to misread this season. Plenty of folks have.

Richardson's never been shy about spending money. he just prefers to spend wisely (i.e. not blowing big money on free agents just because analysts or fans think you should).

The mistake everyone is making is to not put this season in proper context. This year is unique, and has led to a unique approach.

Players do not want the 18 game season, and they're making it known (loudly).

How can an uncapped year affect cutting salaries? It could help in adding salaries, perhaps.

There will be a rookie cap, and this talk about JR being cheap will not be a issue.
