    Who is to blame for the Giants Salary Cap issues?



    The Giants are once again well over the Cap limit and need to dump quality players because of it.




    Kind of sucks we wont be able to retain any of our FAs without some major adjustments. This could be a completely different team next season. Reese pulled it off last year and was right. But can he do it again? Manningham, Thomas, Ross and KMac are most likely all gone. Baas, Jacobs, Canty, CWeb, Eliall NEED to retructure their contracts orJerry will have some major decisions to make.




    This also means we are not going to be able to sign any big time FAs for the 2nd year in a row, while teams like Philly and Washington can reload. Dallas is also on a tight budget. I know Philly's spending spree didnt work last year, but there is no denying the talent they have.




    Before you say we have to resign Mario or Thomas or whoever, think about it. How can we really afford it? Looks like we will let all those guys test the market and pray we hit on the draft.




    But hey, we just won another Superbowl!



    Giants are $9M over the cap and need to trim it by March 13th, when FA begins.

    Jerry Jones said Dallas has about $20 mill to spend and he plans on spending every last dime.

    Not sure where you got the tight budget from, but most of these reports are wrong because they don't factor in a myriad of different things that all go into maintaining the cap.

    I'll wait until Reese makes move to care.

    Far too early to worry.

    It's going to be a busy summer all over the NFL and there's no doubt that there will be comings and goings down Meadowlands way.

    I don't understand how the Eagles are year in and year out significantly under the cap. It really is mind boggling to me.

    YOU BLAME THE SAME PEOPLE THAT ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR 2 SUPER BOWL TITLES IN 4 YEARS!

    THE GIANTS SIGNED PLAYERS TO LARGE CONTRACTS IN ORDER TO WIN....AND THEY DID!

    They have a hell of a front office financially. They are great at structuring contracts and not having heavy contracts they cant get out of easily. Not sure how they fully do it though. But there they are again, under the cap and ready to do some more shopping.




    Reese paid Eli dearly, but Eli is playing like he is getting paid. But contracts like CWeb, Jacobs, Canty, Rolle and Diehl and Snee really hamper us. Cweb, as good as he is, is making a ton of money. Same with Eli. In 2017, Eli will be making almost $20M!

    Thats what happens when you continually have a top 5 pick up until last year. Those players GOT PAID big time money before ever taking a snap. Look at Bradford or Longs contracts.
