Thread: Why do people think Cruz is easily replaceable?

    sort of looks like the league will have to go back to the drawing board and rethink this cap business because players salaries have made the cap unlivable as it exists today

    Because there is a high probability that the cap won't increase enough for us to spend $14m-$20m a year on the WR position. It might be doable if both get contracts closer to $7m/yr, but it's likely that one or both may command more.

    And one of the reasons many of these guys made so much money is that we've won a couple titles over the past several seasons. Players that get contracts after winning titles usually get more than if they hadn't. The thing is we have a lot of guys on their second and third contracts, which tend the big money years. Combine that with several of those players underperfoming, and that's when you get us missing the playoffs.

    The Giants just won a Super Bowl under this "unlivable" cap situation. You think the lack of cap space injured Hakeem Nicks?

    What's the common thread amonst teams which make huge splashes in free agency, year in and year out? Often, it's that those teams are rubbish.

    Webster, Tuck and Diehl come off the books next year, there could be a bit more room to move.

    Right but Cruz was not enough in 011. We need more positive production.

    Not really. We have to give a contract to Beatty, Cruz, Bennett, S. Brown, A. Brown, and KP this offseason. Between contracts coming off and new ones coming on, it's probably a wash at best.

    Nah, the NFL is incredibly successful. They love that different teams can win every year, and that all the teams spend the same dough. It's what makes it so much better than baseball.

    Nah I meant more money for Nicks. Rolle, Canty, Bradshaw and Snee's contracts will lapse just in time to sign JPP and Prince to long-term deals... Provided a big-name free agent isn't brought in, this cap mess could come right before long.
