Look at the cap impact for 2014 as well.....not just 2013.

Some of those guys you claim can't be cut likely will. Might as well start now building your 2014 team...that way you have a season to get guys to mesh



I cut everyone listed but Beason, only reason I didn't cut Beason is the team can't afford to do it with a 15 million cap hit. I said to build his value up then cut him in 2014, if possible trade him. Also do you think the team I listed out above has any playoff shot what so every in 2013?

The team you listed isn't drastically different than the one that finished strong this past year...IMO.

I think any team with Newton has a shot pending the coaches don't get in his way. Cutting Nakamura and Piggy likely make us better. You then swap Kalil and Gross.....I think with Newton the middle of the line is more important than edges anyway. Gamble didn't play when we where rolling anyway. RBs? You cut depth....guys who clap. Only need one stud, just need him to stay healthy....best ground attack this year used a 4th stringer.

If I don't facepalm at least once during the draft this year, it'll be a good start.

Restructure some of those big contracts. Make solid draft picks that address need. Will impress me if instead of cutting gamble beason etc u make a trade and get something in return.

The draft is where you win or lose. Let's just see who he drafts and what impact they have. Its been a while since we even had two Rookie contribute there first year without injuries.

Amini at LG, Keuchly at OLB and MLB, Adams at PR, Norman played a lot before Gamble went down. Nortman was the starting Punter. I just listed players who would've got a ton of playing time with out injuries on here.

I don't know that he can do anything that'll make me optimistic about next season.

If he makes good decisions on the draft and free agency though, I might have reason for optimism the year after.

And since I know it won't happen this offseason, stealing a few people from the Giants front office a year from now would absolutely help my outlook for the future.

This article says we are roughly 11.8 million over the cap once the carry over money is figured in. If we use the numbers in this thread. Cutting Gamble, Ron Edwards and Nakumura get you even.
So even if we keep Williams, Gross and Beason but restructure the deals for a few million apiece we are sitting 6-8 million under the cap which covers your rookies. You cut Tolbert, cut Onatolu, restructure Godfrey, restructure Dwan Edwards and cut Armanti and you have 5 or 6 million more.
And who have we gotten rid of really?? I think we can cut Pickles and save a few million more. Yeah a rookie would be better or a minimum vet guy from another team. I don't see that cutting a lot of useless guys will keep us out of free agency or doom us to suck. We have had a number of guys who have seriously underperformed but got paid well for nothing.

Until he actually screws up, I am going to give Gettlemen my trust. He has a proven track record as a pro evaluater. Who is he going to trust to lead him through the draft? That is the only qualm I have.

The hiring of Gettlemen put us back on track. We have a football guy running our football team. Why not give him a chance to actually make a few decisions before we question his ability?

Yes there is going to be addition by subtraction for this team. However, I, and many others, just happen to believe that that bright future we all envisioned when we drafted Cam, has already started.

The team that played the last eight games last year can compete with anyone. If we can just keep improving. We should be just fine. Or even better, great.

Why not?

Also, the only hole this team truly has? RG. Any other position can be upgraded, but none can be thought of as holes. We may not have stars at every position. But the team that finished last year was very solid. If we have a solid draft, and do well in FA, there is no reason we cannot be good to great next year.

IMO, with Gettlemen helping him, Rivera is going to get us where we want to go. And I am giddy over that prospect.

Oh yeah, and GOOOOOOO CATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

- Fix the cap by cutting/restructuring the right guys

- squeeze in enough room to find some quality free agent(s)

- don't *** up the draft
