The team looks to have some heart. I couldn't say that last season, especially as it went on. If nothing else, I don't think that our new veteran additions, particularly Mayfield, are going to go down without a fight. And for the vets that were already here--like Donte said, "It's year three." The guys are on a mission.
People don’t get this at all. Salary cap isn’t a myth. It’s simple math and can be manipulated. We can sign some people but we’ve wasted so much cap space it’s ridiculous. We got 3 straight 5 win seasons for it. The Saints and KC had their solid cores signed so they could manipulate and extend their better players and add pieces to continue to go to the playoffs. We spent/have signed $140M+ on Teddy, Okung, Erving, Short, Elflein, Robby, Weatherly and Darnold. That’s not the same. When we get a solid core and get back to the playoffs, then we can say it’s a myth. Spending all your cap and getting 5 wins is not the same.
People will point to Rhule and rightly so but this team has a different aura it seems. All last year people bitched and moaned that no one was vocal and now Burns, Jackson, Shaq, and now Baker are being more vocal.
