Every year, we are in a cap struggle. We are not able to go after a few key pieces because of our mismanagement in the past.
Do you think that had we had some space that Vincent Jackson would have been a good pickup for Cam and this O? We didn't have the cap space to do it.
Do you think that we got a steal by bringing in Naka? Nope, we just couldn't afford anything better.
Yes, we always manage to get under the cap....all teams do, but we are not a good football team. As bad as we have been lately, we should have tons of cap to show for it....but we don't.
I don't think you quite understand how this football team works.
Electing not to sign "big name" free agents is just that-a decision. A flawed philosophy that we picked up somewhere along the way. It has nothing to do with " we. Aint. Got. No. Moniez. Brah!" and only a simpleton would think so. That cap can be arranged and manipulated by a competent manager of it with ease provided they're intelligent enough to do it an willing to do it (I.e. making the tough decisions)
We see every team around the league do it yearly, and every year the same morons are befuddled because "like what? How? Espn said that dey ain't got no moniez and moniez was something dey did not have!!"
It even happens here in the rare case we make a move in free agency
