Can somebody read this and give me the Cliff's Notes version?
1. Gunty 42/46 is a moron delight. His own GM has tried to copy BB and he mocks what BB does. Yet, his own team missed the playoffs outright with a .500 record.
2. RKarp is utterly clueless when it comes to understanding finances. He selects a wishful thinking-tinged anti-Pats based synopsis of what is otherwise widely considered incredible cap position for a very young team knocking on the SB door on an annual basis now.
He suggests he'd like to provide the Bills and Dolphins cap situation, but not the Jets. Funny how he wants to not provide the dire Jets situation in this discussion, as he provides us with a very poorly analyzed Pats cap situation. Hmm.
This, on the heels of Revis being "shocked" he will be traded. RKarp still can't figure it out. If our best player needed a new deal while being 20 mil over the cap currently, an entire defense to fix, a new GM, no QB, a lame duck head coach, etc, this board would blow up. RKarp's hypocrisy and lack of intellect cannot be made up. It just can't.
Keep in mind he claims he went to Tufts and has an MBA from Harvard. bawhaa
3. Everyone else but RKarp and MtHurl can see how great a position NE is in heading into 2013 and beyond before the cap rises in 2015.
Translaton: Nothing has changed. The trolls who pose as Pats fans will still have a see through agenda while the rest of us call them out with ease.
I just provided the Phins and Bills article. As I clearly stated the Jets article will post this week. I understand your reading level is not up to Harvard standards, but even you should under stand that. Read all 3 articles and only a moron would say "bias against the Pats" but then again, you are a moron.
if you have any understanding of the cap situation, you will see the issue with Brady in the next 1 or 2 years, which is clearly spelled out in the article.
Read the article again and see that this team has the most money due its 3 most aged players, Brady, Vince and Mankins. Vince and Mankins have had contentious negotiations with the Pats, and Brady is on the verge of being non negotiable with a cap hit exceeding Peyton with out a new contract, paying $100 million in his aged 38-42 years.
You call this cap nirvana?
is it possible that you retort with out mentioning the Jets, as no where do I or the article bring up the Jets. Tell us genius, how you think that 2013 and 2014 is not going to be hard on he Pats?
i agree, it is better to be $15 milunder under than over, but the Pats have very little dollars of clear player cuts that will help the cap (Fells, Ghostkowski?) keeping Vollmer and Talib or replacing Talib with a similar talent, as well as signing Woody, Edelman, Arrington is going to be challenging with out Mankins and Brady restructured...
Go list the STARTERS on your favorite team (the Jets) that they have to replace, with them 20 million OVER. Go ahead and do it. List the names, in particular on D.
You're on here babbling about how NY can clip 20 million with ease (LOL) and now are saying NE under 15 mil, with decisions to make, are doomed!
We're doomed because RKarp said so and RKarp w/Cupcake Hurlie are so intelligent! lmao
Did you just see the report that said the Jets were looking to deal Revis BEFORE the season and his ACL tear?
Absolute fact. Even that moron Tannenboob realized he had himself in a pickle, but the big reason why they couldn't trade him is because NY is asking too much in compensation due to his outlandish future price tag. How many times did I suggest to you and moron Hurlie that the Jets were up the creek?
And, now you're trying to tell us NE is?
That means Tannenboob had weakened leverage before and this new GM is in a worse position because Revis is coming off a blown out ACL.
Yet, you sit on here casting aside their unbelievable hole as an organization to somehow try to manufacture this idea that NE is in a sketchy situation? Do you have any idea how arrogant you are?
Edelman will be a cheap resign. He's not going anywhere. Woodhead, Welker and Vollmer may all be gone. Vereen is Woodhead's replacement. Ridley and Bolden look good to me. Talib hopefully is resigned and I don't see Arrington being hard to resign unless someone steps in. If so, then see ya. I have no issue with a tandem of Talib and Dennard s starters. They're as good as a duo as you'll find in the AFC.
Every team faces FA questions every year and ours is no different. But, if you look at all the playoff teams or elite teams right now, NE is in the best shape of any of them.
The continued use of the the Jets 20 million over is just silly. Uneducated fans love to try to pick out numbers to prove some point that doesn't exist. The Jets have a tight cap, no doubt. They are not, realistically, 20 million over. The truth of their cap situation is this. The are currently at about 147 mil. Jason Smith is listed at 12 mil with no cap hit if he's cut. He'll be cut. That makes 135 mil. Bart Scott and Calvin Pace will net them 15 mil when they get cut, that's gets them120. Eric Smith getting cut will get them another 3 mil. Here is where the Revis trade does not make sense. If he is traded, it will increase his cap hit by about 3 million. Trading Cromartie after a great season will not only get them more in compensation than 1 year rental of Revis coming off surgery, but also decrease their cap by 8 to 10 million. The problem the Jets will face will be having to once again replace their safeties, though Landry to a very good job for them in 2012 at a very cheap price, I expect that there will be some serious competition for his services in 2013 and the Jets will not be able to afford him. Of course, with cutting Pace and Scott, they will then need to replace their starting LBs. The fortunate thing about that for the Jets is that those guys were pretty poor run stoppers this year and almost anyone will be an upgrade. With their cap credit from 2012, released/traded players the Jets will be between 105 and 110 million, but will need to replace a handful of starters, albeit, not very good ones.
This is not entirely different than sitting with 15 million to spend and having to sign a top CB, a top WR and a starting offensive lineman.
