Yeah, im sure they are gonna be fuged teh next couple of years... everything from last year must have been back-loaded... there's no secret trick to spend money without it affecting your cap.

If Hurney backloaded a lot of contracts, im sure the huddle would bitch about it in future years...


no they havent backloaded a ton of guaranteed money. most of the players they added are at very cheap deals which is why they have cap space still. they don't lock themselves in to a specific player. they get a guy at the price they want or they move on to their next option.

as far as hurney tieing up huge amounts of money into the future.... http://espn.go.com/b...-cap-challenges

...and how far did all that spending last year get them?

Hopefully they are smart and use that 16 million to resign their own guys instead of chasing FA's around.

I agree that we overpaid DeAngelo, but at least we've demonstrated that we take care of our own guys first and that's an important message to send.

They don't have a lot of guaranteed money going into the ends of the contracts, which is good, but these players don't exactly help them going forward if they have to cut them after next season.

I have a really really really hard time believing that the # is accurate! 16.1 million? No way right?? I mean Vicks contract isn't at all guaranteed and is incentive laden, but damn 16.1 million under?

If you thought they were the DreamTeam last year, just fuggin wait til the smoke clears before the season starts


Vicks contract really wasn't what it appeared

It works when you draft well (both quality and distribution of positions) and you win. However, when you overload a position and still don't win you can't just keep paying because it's a good player you drafted.

You have to field a good overall team, it's kind of that simple.

I feel like Hurney overpaid Deangelo because he felt he had to have a monster run game in place to protect Cam early on. When it turned out that Cam was much farther along than anyone could have ever guessed, they let the offense work through him as the main piece.

I don't feel great about the Deangelo contract either, but I don't think it shows that our front office is RB obsessed, committed to dinosaur football, or stupid.

I don't think it means they are run obsessed or dinosaurs. It points to being kind of stupid to me. It just seems they've been on a string of bad personnel decisions going back about 6 years. I don't know, it just seems that any reasonable person can look at most of them and scratch their head.

I've said why I understand WIlliams` contract. Other than the Delhomme extension and letting Peppers walk (which was sort of a intertwined issue), I don't think we've done anything head scratching the past six years.

they didnt win anything last year, but neither did the panthers. yes you must build threw the draft but the holes you still have on your team can and should be filled thru FA.you have to have that right blend.
