Update on cap situation new GM will inherit.

66 posts in this topic

So basically Hurney left the team financially fuged and whatever GM they hire is going to have to gut the team to have any flexibility at all to rebuild the roster.

That's just what I wanted to hear.

bro didn't you hear hurney's a cap genius

Well you just have to hope some of these guys are willing to restructure. Although the players run the risk of losing money if they get cut by the new GM after a restructure, so maybe they won't restructure at all and we're still fuged.

It wouldn't be so bad if the players identified as the core had performed like they were paid. And Hurney's biggest problem was poor drafting.

As to the cap, it will work out. We'll have 1 year that will be tough with lots of dead money and cheap replacements, but should be okay after. I mean, yes, $10 million sounds like a lot, but a good restructuring of Gross and Gamble can easily cover that while we trim some of the fat. The next year, we do a bit more, and so on.

decisions shouldn't be difficult. that kind of money gets paid to your core guys. if anyone getting that kind of money isn't performing at core level or getting the playing time (for performance-based reasons) that a core guy should, find the best way to get rid of him.

if we're completely honest, this includes deangelo williams and jon beason, and CJ (based solely on the fact that he's not performing like a 13M player should.)

Any player that is supposedto get a huge roster bonuses next seaon will be gone. So who are they? Also new gm will restructure some of these deals so it will bring the cap figure down. Next seaon will be painful year we will have to keep some due to a high cap hit.

We have some ridiculously overpaid players. I like to think our players are team players and will restructure but you never know in the NFL. Gross and Gamble need to be restructured asap. DWill's cap hit is absurd. He needs to go. We'll be fine with JStew and Tolbert carrying the load. Beason has been injured 2 seasons in a row now and has most likely lost his MLB spot. He should be seeking out the FO and offering them a restructure himself.

With the right GM we will be alright. A few restructures, cut dead weight, a good draft, and smart FA signings and we can be competitive. I know, easier said than done. But it shouldn't be hard with the consultant we're hiring and a little more than half a season to evaluate.

I continue to laugh my balls off at every poster who thinks Hurney wasn't a capologist idiot.

Where's the "I got this" Hurney picture posters?

Never has an NFL GM been completely heisted by a player like Hurney was for 2 years by Julius Peppers.

Never.

I remember a Huddle just a couple of years ago where doing research or finding an article of this nature would have netted the OP at least 20 pieces of "delicious" pie... That's what the huddle is here for. Instead, you get 2 pieces of not "delicious" pie for posts like these, but you get 10 for a good one liner... The Huddle much like our team has embraced a loser's mentality.

Sure, Pie really doesn't matter... Or it's just the interwebs... But I think we all like to get pie, as it kind of validates the things we say, as in people agree with us on things we say. It'd be nice to get back to the old huddle... And from what I understand... Before I got here it was even better.

Sorry if this post derails this thread, I really am... But if this post changes a few mentalities around here then perhaps it was worth it. Don't pie me for this post either... Instead give it to the guy that started this thread... We all knew the Cap was fugged... He just basically broke it down all in one spot... Sadly for all of us, it looks like this team may get a lot worse before it gets better. So much for high expectations coming into the season huh?

I've been saying this for a while. We will lose some house hold names after this season is over
