    Well, Mankins name is in with that special group so I don't know how he couldn't but help but save on the cap.  Where did this come from?

    Re: Interesting take on Pats cap position

    rkarp...  the bean counters of the Patriots know pretty well what they need to do and BB knows who he will want to keep, trade or let go. There will be many decisions that will make fans happy as there will be many that simply make us go "what the f***!!!"  Of all the decision to be made, IMHO, Tom Brady is the most sacred cow in the house.  He will not go anywhere and has no reason to.  Yes, some here will point to Peyton Manning as an example of a supposed sacred cow that was let go, but, Peyton had injury issues and the Colts needed to move on without any question marks.  Presently, Brady has no question marks whatsoever regarding his health and play abilities.  He may not be a spring chicken, but, most QBs in the league would give their "left n*t" to play like Brady is playing now at age 36.  Overall, the team has holes to fill, a "real" WR and improved defensive backfield..  we shall see in the upcoming months leading to training camp.  The Pats have millions to spare, more than most teams in the upper echelons of the league.

    No.  How you decipher information is up to you.  I will not read into 15 mill under cap as a bad thing regardless of who is signed or not.  Sorry.  BB is the best at getting bargin priced players just fine.  They still have their best players on each side of the ball with room to get better.  All they HAVE to do is sign Talib or a number 1 corner.  You saw the difference that did.  

    They have a real returner in Demps coming back.  Ballard bolsters out TE position.  The team is already better than last year if they can sign Talib.  That's what I see.  Then they have 3 picks in the first 3 round.  

    Not concerned about the future of this team in the littlest bit.   

     



    Of course being 15 mil under is not a bad thing, but it needs to be put in the right context. We have 15 mil to spend, but we currently have a roster of 39 players.  If we opt to try to keep Welker and his 100 + catches, that's 11+ mil.  If we want to keep Talib, that's 8+ mil a year.  I think Jason McCourty just got about that much, so Talib we be able to get that.  Pretty quickly, that 15 million is gone.  Like the Jets, we have a lot of money tied up in our top 3 or 4 paid players.

     

     




    You can't compare other CBs salaries in different markets. The market is cotinually changing. The amount of quality CBs in FA hurts Talib, as does his chekered past, not to mention this is the best enviornment for him to play in with his agent knowing it.

     

    I can see 6 for him, but no more. Welker is gone. Once they paid Hernandez, that was it for Welker, long term here.

    I would not be srprised if Wilfork or even Mankins did some restructuring as well.  Vollmer will also not be overpaid.



    Exactly, I think Talib is in and WW is out.

    Can somebody read this and give me the Cliff's Notes version? 

     




    1. Gunty 42/46 is a moron delight.  His own GM has tried to copy BB and he mocks what BB does.  Yet, his own team missed the playoffs outright with a .500 record.

     

    Priceless.

    2. RKarp is utterly clueless when it comes to understanding finances.  He selects a wishful thinking-tinged anti-Pats based synopsis of what is otherwise widely considered incredible cap position for a very young team knocking on the SB door on an annual basis now.

    He suggests he'd like to provide the Bills and Dolphins cap situation, but not the Jets.  Funny how he wants to not provide the dire Jets situation in this discussion, as he provides us with a very poorly analyzed Pats cap situation. Hmm.

    This, on the heels of Revis being "shocked" he will be traded.   RKarp still can't figure it out.  If our best player needed a new deal while being 20 mil over the cap currently, an entire defense to fix, a new GM, no QB, a lame duck head coach, etc, this board would blow up.  RKarp's hypocrisy and lack of intellect cannot be made up. It just can't.

    Keep in mind he claims he went to Tufts and has an MBA from Harvard. bawhaa

    3. Everyone else but RKarp and MtHurl can see how great a position NE is in heading into 2013 and beyond before the cap rises in 2015.

    Translaton: Nothing has changed. The trolls who pose as Pats fans will still have a see through agenda while the rest of us call them out with ease.

     

     




    I have to agree with this. As he keeps trying to make 'points'.

    If you don't think the Pats are in a good place, then you have wishful thinking of something negative.  Amazing.

    You're correct!! Nothing has changed - we will still be plenty under the cap and we will continue to get our heads kicked in by better teams in the playoffs!! Congratulations! We might even continue to leave ourselves 4-7 millon under the cap (that sure helps us). Perhaps we can trade another 4th rounder next season to a team that has a talented defensive player? That way it will cover up our defensive mistakes.

    Hey, how is that misfit poor decision by Harbaugh, quaterback doing these days?? What is that kid's name again? Colin Kaepernick? Something like that. It's too bad Harbaugh made the mistake of benching Alex Smith:)  Bawahahahahaaahaaahahaaa!!! My lord, you are easily the dumbest person on this site. Please please continue to enlighten us with your football insight, it is the most hilarious thing ever!
