My point is that we should be able to discuss our agreement or disagreement with anything the FO does without some poster saying that "JR knows more than you" as some kind of blanket retort to end the discussion.
The big problem I'm seeing now is that most of the good players are free agents (Eli, JPP, and Nicks are the only critical players we have that are still under contract), and most of the underperformers are signed through the year already... We're not going to be able to sign all of Cruz, the Browns, Marty, and KP, which are the 5 high-priority Giants FA. We'd be lucky to get 3 of them. Because we got screwed over by all this restructuring...
we've invested $18 million a season (in 2013 cap dollars) between Rolle and Canty. and i think we have some dead money from restructuring rocky too.
any restructuring was what Reese was doing because of these FA signings that while they've been productive for us, haven't been good bang for our buck at all.
the Webby thing is also really screwing us. Webby Rolle and Canty = $27 million in cap $. That makes me sick. Sick.
Gumby742's email has been lost and I have no idea how to recover it.
And losing Smith eventually led to us having Cruz and go on to win another SB.
Not to mention both Smith and Boss went on to do absolutely nothing in the league.
I'd call that pretty damn good management, wouldn't you?
Click on the individual to get the contract specifics. You save base salary and the first $150-250k of the "Misc. Bonus" which is typically the work out bonus (assuming you're cutting before OTAs). Signing bonuses and the remainder of the Misc. Bonus must be paid if cut.
This doesn't include any weirdness in the contract itself (such as deferrals and what not which are rarities).
At least that's how the aliens explained it to me.
