We're still going to beat them at least once this season, I'll take a bet on that. Watch him get injured and they still have to pay him lol

Welp, we suck again.


If the 2010 Panthers can lose by 16-14, Im pretty sure the 2012 Panthers could beat the Saints* twice this coming year. Also we loss by only 3 the 1st game last year, so in our 1st meetings with a horrid 2010 offense, and 2011 with a horrid DEF, we loss by a combined 5 points, the second meeting has been spankings. But both seasons you could tell we didn't come to play, we were playing for nothing.

Brees* will have to quit his part time gig. Here is some of his earlier work.

Does anyone else remember the name of that defensive coach who pretty well shut down Peyton Manning?

I think it was Ron something :unsure:

Our defense is pure poo, Mcdermont's system is laughable at best.

I think this is about as good as we could realistically hope for. Brees stays in the division but the Saints* will be handiCAPped(punny) for the near future.

I've got an update on how Breesus' contract is going to hit the Saints*** over the next 5 years.

Actually no, 10 million cap hit this year :)
We actually got 6 million in cap room from this:
From PFT "In all, he’ll receive $40 million this year, $10 million in 2013, $11 million in 2014, $19 million in 2015, and $20 million in 2016. Which makes it, in essence, a three-year, $61 million contract with a team option for year four (at $19 million) and year five (at $20 million"
SO cap hits are
2012 10.2 million (3m base + 37/5 = 7.2m signing bonus)
2013 17.2 m
2014 18.2 m
2015 26.2 m
2016 27.2 m


So this contract actually opens up cap space for them this year, but then gets devastating for their cap situation from 2014 to 2016. They're banking on the overall cap going up from $120 mil due to TV contracts, but teams were banking on that this year too (Cowboys, Redskins), and look where that got them.

Good, the Saints*** will be in cap hell. All those offseason signings with money they don't have, geniuses.

ReadyorNot isn't a panther fan. He's the same twat that started a thread about Steve smith wasting his career here.

As a said before the cap for this year actually went down. It is essentially a 3 year deal. In 2012 he counts 10.4 million, in 2013 he counts 17.4 million and in 2014 he counts 18.4 million. Then in 2015 it goes up to 26.4 million and in 2016 it goes up to 27.4 million. Supposedly the TV contract is supposed to take care of that but you saw how in 2014 revenue will be flat. If teams borrow again on future earnings to raise the cap in 2013, then 2015 could be relatively flat and this would be a huge problem for the Saints**.

Counting Brees the Saints** have roughly 130 million committed to the cap for 2013 which counts 47 players signed of the 56 which count against the cap. And things won't get any better in 2014. Unless the TV contract does go up a bunch, Brees will be gone in 2015.

The window is definitely closing. With 2012 unlikely for a Super bowl, they will have 2 years to get it done before they retreat back to suckdom.

I don't have the link, but I remember reading some where, that said the owners offered the Union a fixed cap I think it was around 140-150mil.
