I dont get why everyone wants to cut Anderson...

he is an example of what has been wrong.

We pay him to be X when he really is just Y. We could bring in a Y and pay him to be a Y.

People say cut Gamble and D-Lo because it's the popular thing to say, but if we can get under the cap with them restructuring, then I say keep the both of them.

That is Hurney magic.....it isn't about just getting under the cap to operate.

It is about paying the right guys and not overpaying.

People don't say to cut Williams b/c it is popular...they say it b/c it makes no sense to spend what we are for runners on a Cam Newton lead team.

Because he sucks player. He will not take a block head on...refuses to...hurts the rest of our guys in run D. If you are going to play Sam, you have to be willing to sacrifice yourself on strongside runs, he won't which is why we were better when Phillips was starting.

my thinking is that it's a choice between a restructured beason or a restructured anderson, because there's no way we go into the future with either one of those guys at their existing deals. we can't afford to keep both, either.

beason > anderson. we find a way to keep beason here and let anderson go. also cutting anderson will cost less than cutting beason.

"James Anderson is signed for 5 years / $22 million with the Carolina Panthers. He is making $2.90 million in 2013." per: www.spotrac.com/nfl/carolina-panthers/james-anderson/ I think that this is pretty reasonable for a LB of his caliber.

According to

www.spotrac.com/nfl/carolina-panthers/james-anderson/

You +1'd this publicly. UndoJames Anderson is signed for 5 years / $22 million with the Carolina Panthers. He is making $2.90 million in 2013. To be backup to Beason, Kuechly, Davis...I think it's a good deal. What are other backups of his caliber making.

Phillips is not as good as Anderson in the overrall position. I take Anderson over Phillips, but I hope that we can keep them both as backups. Beason should be willing to restructure and with the possibility of reinjury to Beason and Davis, we need Anderson.

his cap hit is $4.4mil. if he was cut it would cost $4.2mil (divided between two years).

beason's cap hit is $9.5mil, but it would cost $12mil to cut him (again, divided between two years).

we can't afford to keep him and beason around. there's really no need to do that. anderson would be cheaper to unload. beason's a much better player and more important as a leader than anderson. beason's more than likley going to be redoing his contract to make it less of a cap hit and it will be more in line with what a MLB whose missed two years of play would be getting from anywhere else. i doubt that even if he redoes his deal that there's enough cap space to keep both around.

the 2mil we'd save from cutting him this year and next might not seem like a lot, but in the big picture it really helps.

Ya don't cut Anderson.

Possibly trade him for a player of need.

If not, keep him. His cost is very affordable.

That 2mil is almost enough to allow you to upgrade either RG or S. Hell, you could probably get a good TE for that money. I'm thinking 2.5 mil should be right around the asking price this year.

If Beast redoes his deal and lowers his cap hit by close to 5mil, (Which I feel is only fair considering what he has made to not play.) that alone can bring in two upgrades.

Once we get back to even witht he cap, we should be able to upgrade enough through FA to allow us to draft how we want. Been a while since that was true.

The big question becomes. Can we actually get the guys we want in FA to come here for what we can pay? This is going to get interesting, at least it feels like it is headed that way.

if we were the only one in a lot of cap trouble it might be a problem, but the truth is that quite a few teams are in just as much trouble and are looking at limited cap space and will be able to do nothing more than sign players to affordable 1-2 year deals.

also quite a few players will be hitting the market because of those cap issues, and i mean quality players and if they want jobs, they'll have to resort to taking those affordable and short term contracts.

it's a buyers market this year which sucks for FA players because the buyers don't have much cap space to work with. as needy as teams are, the players are needier.

    • http://www.alternet.org/grayzone-project/fbi-isis-garland-texas-shooting-undercover-agent The first attack on U.S. soil for which ISIS claimed responsibility—a 2015 shooting in Garland, Texas—was instigated by the FBI, according to an investigation by CBS' "60 Minutes" and government documents obtained by an attorney involved in the case. In a macabre twist, an undercover FBI agent who encouraged one of the shooters to "tear up Texas" was also physically present at the scene of the crime, mere feet away from the shooters. Prior to that, a separate informant was paid $132,000 by the FBI to pretend for three years to be friends with the future shooter. When the man found out his supposed friend had taped more than 1,500 hours of their conversations on behalf of the intelligence agency, he withdrew from his religious community and eventually fell into online religious extremism. ...... On May 3, 2015, two Islamist extremist gunmen opened fire at an exhibit for cartoons of the Islamic prophet Muhammad in Garland, Texas. The contest featured key figures in the Islamophobia industry, including anti-Muslim demagogue Pamela Geller and extreme-right Dutch politician Geert Wilders. The intentionally provocative exhibit was swarming with security, including dozens of police officers, snipers and a SWAT team. The heavily armed attackers injured a security guard outside the building before they were themselves promptly shot by snipers and killed. ISIS soon after took credit for the shooting. There is no evidence that ISIS organized the attack, but the shooters had been independently radicalized and were inspired by the genocidal extremist group. In the two years since, the Garland shooting has been used to justify a vast array of anti-Muslim policies and measures. A new investigation by the investigation team at "60 Minutes," nevertheless, shows that the FBI was deeply implicated in the attack. ..... After the trial, Maynard was given 60 pages of declassified messages between an undercover FBI agent and one of the shooters, Elton Simpson. These documents showed that, less than three weeks before the attack, the FBI agent had told Simpson to "Tear up Texas." This "to me was an encouragement to Simpson," the attorney told "60 Minutes." The government denied that the text constituted incitement, but the FBI's involvement did not end there. "60 Minutes" reported that the U.S. government admitted in an affidavit that the undercover FBI agent also physically "traveled to Garland, Texas, and was present ... at the event." "I was shocked," Maynard told the news program. "I was shocked that the government hadn't turned this over. I wanted to know when did he get there, why was he there?" Documents the government gave to the attorney showed that the FBI agent had in fact been in a car behind the two shooters at the time of the attack. The undercover FBI agent even used his cell phone, several feet away, to film the building's security guard seconds before he was shot by the Islamist extremists. "It's stunning," Maynard told "60 Minutes." "The idea that he's right there 30 seconds before the attack happens is just incredible to me." ..... The undercover FBI agent fled the scene of the crime before being stopped at gunpoint and detained by Garland police. ..... Dabla Deng, the informant, pretended to be Simpson's friend for three years, "60 Minutes" reported. Deng taped more than 1,500 hours of their conversations. When Simpson "found out that this guy was spying on him, and taping him and then finding out that the government was doing that, I think something clicked in him," recalled Usama Shami, president of the Islamic Community Center of Phoenix. "And the mosque, we couldn't do anything." "He felt that the mosque had abandoned him?" Anderson Cooper asked. "Yes. And he felt that a lot of people had abandoned him. And that's why he stopped coming to the mosque," Shami said. After this, Simpson moved in with his friend Nadir Soofi, who "60 Minutes" noted "had just had a bitter break-up and the pizza parlor he owned was going out of business." The two alienated men drifted into extremist religious communities online, and were attracted by ISIS recruiters.
    • i actually took this test a year ago because i was talking to this girl who was a psych major and really invested in this test. then i was talking to this other girl who was also a psych major and she thought there wasn't much to it, she basically didn't have respect for it. if i took it today it'd probably line up the same. 
    •    There isn't a problem taking a tackle usually. The problem would be taking any of THESE OTs that high. If there was someone close to that, we would have risked so much on Kalil.
