There is no strangling. As bad as it is he won't be here, it won't affect the teambuild. You'll see.
Pezzy, TFB12, Babe, Mt Hurl, Shizzles and all the other shortsighted BBWs, literally have never gotten it. They're blinded by the Brady doll.
There's a ton of strangling. 16+ Mil in dead money this year, 22+ Mil, last, almost 9 already next year and it hasn't even begun.
Cap hell without Brady's restructures/extentions, as he single handedly wiped out about 8M of that dead money each year. and made it more managable.
Thank you TOM BRADY!
You should change your handle to deadmoneypanic or something. It's a broken record. Who cares about 2012?
The league average for dead money in 2013 is $14.7 mil and the Pats have $16.7 mil. Whoopie. Real crippling. They're 13-4 with several core players on IR. I think they know what they're doing better than you. We should all manage our business like they do.
I do run a business and the last thing I would want to do is pay for the same product twice as that is the result of excessive DM, because of bad contracts.
The Bad contract and the cost of his replacement.
Player "A", DM ='s $2M + player "B"(replacement)' contract of $1M, means you actually spent $3M on that position for that year.
It virtually forces you into a cheaper replacement, which is the reason for half the team being rookies and UDFA's.
You can't really use an average as basis for contrast as teams with excessive DM as in the following, skru that average.
Oakland Raiders $50,321,847 2 Jacksonville Jaguars $27,029,986 3 New York Jets $22,021,612 4 Philadelphia Eagles$22,021,612
The Pats come in right behind those bad or mediocre teams.
In contrast the Seahawks had $6M in DM and the Niners had about 3M. (Which means they had a whole lot more to spend on actual players, as apposed to bad contracts.
Now, that Pats always seem to do more with less, which is great, (in a way)
But you have to wonder what would be, if they weren't actually spending $3M on $1M, replacement players. A lot of them!
And, yes, they are VERY fortunate Brady offsets a lot of that Dead Money with his cap saving contracts as there would actually be MUCH less to spend on all those replacements.
