While my personal income may suffer due to a lay off, NFL teams will continue to get paid even if amount is basically same (cap) annually. I recently moved from a 2008 to 2012 auto and kept same payment for twice the car. Due to high mileage (work) that I no longer have, I am now investing in an auto I can keep for many years. Did the same with my son's car and lowered his payment & insurance costs. So if investments are wise, Texans can replace older, higher dollars with cheaper, younger contracts. This is why I look at our cap situation differently than some.
