    Restructures will be the end of JR if he isn't careful.

    Last year he had his contract restructured to get under the cap and negotiated a $9MM raise in return. If you think that Eli (or anyone) is taking a pay cut to fit the team under the cap you are dilusional.
    Get well soon 80.

    I understand the sort term logic but over the long term, without significant increases in the CAP, it eventually gets a stranglehold on the ability to maintain a team that can contend year after year

    Of course. It's just concerning how the cap situation has, in many cases, made it easier to get rid of good players than bad.

    I know, which supports the parity goal but makes fans crazy. I think we may have initially thought the CAP would increase by more than a few hundred thousand dollars every season. I know I did.

    If these clowns put in RR when Nicks was injured earlier in the season we would've been able to see how expendable Nicks is. I like Nicks, he's a great player but I believe he can be replaced along with Cruz.

    Everybody can be replaced, that's not the issue, how easily do you replace the investment is the question.

    I still think the slot position manufacturers yards. And they could plug any moderately intelligent receiver in there and get 800+ yards.

    Finding an outside receiver is much more difficult.

    I don't disagree, except to say I think a few players like Welker and Cruz are exceptional at what they do which is why they create the numbers they do.

    I think in 2013 we'll have Nicks and Cruz and in 2014, we may have to lose one. Until then, here's to playing at home in the next Super Bowl
