Explain this to me..Saints and the cap

The cap is just bullshit. Just kick the can the right way and you will always have cap. That's why Hurney was such an idiot. 

Eh I beg to differ, but not that Hurney was an idiot, that part is right.

The Saints are going to have to pay for their CAP situation sooner or later, it will catch up and bite them hard soon.

Hurney's problem is he bid with himself on players, that were frequently high risk due to injury and and age. But for Hurney, hope that these players could return to former glory sprung eternal.

He compounded that by not signing valuable young players the Panthers already had, and the signings he made in FA of the vets often prevented this from happening as well. 

This was further compounded by him signing the occasional awful contract, and then signing more, but more manageable bad contracts in FA trying to hold on tight to a playoff window the door was already shut on. 

Then we completely fall apart and start over from dust.

The problem with saying the Saints will have to pay for this sooner or later is true, however all the dead money they will have with the voidable years probably won't matter because by the time it all hits, in 2 or 3 years, the NFL will have new TV deals and the cap might be 40 or 50% higher than what it is now.  Maybe more since the TV deals are suppose to be about double what they are currently.

We've been saying this about the Saints for like 10 years now. Maybe Brees retiring is the catalyst that really kicks things off since they can't alter his contract any longer.

You just said it.... its every year because they just keep pushing more and more money to future years cap space think of it as buying on credit.... 

They will push it into future as long as they can hoping the league dissolves or forgets about it.

Its crazy to think that with Tepper as an owner we would be better off without a salary cap... He is the NFLs richest owner with the most liquidity....  as for the saints? Who knows all that is certain at this point is that every offseason they will need to perform this juggling act unless they finally bite the bullet and go with a full on "replacement" squad with an entire roster of undrafted rookie free agents.

Exactly, they know how to kick the can the right way while we are eternally playing bargain Betty's in FA. I mean how many years have we had to go to the discount store only to have no winning seasons.
