I'd like to list all the teams that rusty has said were in "cap hell"...
Buffalo after they signed Mario Williams...hell for years
Detroit, it's why we are going to trade for Suh! Because they just can't keep him because of salary cap hell.
Miami after they signed Wallace
Chicago--just gained 10 million by releasing a 34 year old washed up end
Oakland---they over payed for Seymore and will be in hell for years and years and years - yet they were 60 million under the cap a month ago.
Redskins--Wild spenders!! Yet they walked into free agency 30 million under the cap.
Philly--wild, dumb spenders.....20 million under a month ago.
Denver--20 million under a month ago...signed everyone but Jesus Christ this off season.
Jets--30 million under the cap this year...
Colts--they were suppossed to be in hell for years! Everything is normal now.
Seattle--won the Super Bowl, spent wildly, over payed players
Cardinals--We were going to get Fitzgerald because they spent wildly
Texans (on the edge of hell)
Saints--weren't going to sniff the playoffs because of hell..were in them last year
So by my count the only teams he doesn't think are in "salary cap hell" are the Bengals, Vikings, Packers, Patriots, Falcons, 49ers, Browns and Titans. Am I forgetting anyone? Four of those teams didn't make the playoffs last year and the Packers won 8 games.
I find it interesting that at least four teams that he said were in "salary cap hell" walked into free agency with 25 million plus to spend in free agency. I also find it interesting that there were 22 teams that had more salary cap space than us heading into free agency, yet it didn't stop us from signing good players once we realized Denver wasn't going to sit there and do nothing this off season.
Tonight rusty tried to tell me "salary cap hell" was not about salary cap money (money under the cap), but about losing. Which I found laughable because for the past four years every time any team signed a good/expensive player he yelled...salary cap hell! Salary cap hell!!! But now that we are doing the same thing he says nothing. He now is saying the teams that are 30 million under the cap are the teams in salary cap hell (he is, I'm serious). This stuff just can't be made up!
