We're in a really bad spot and I'm very worried that we are going to take a step backwards this year.
We are in a great spot! Look at what teams are having to do... There are some bad teams with money to spend (Miami, Tampa), but Baltimore, New England, Pittsburgh, San Diego, Dallas, NyJets, Phillie, N.O... are all having to make hard cuts. .. With no restructuring, the Texans are a 12 win team under the cap with extra picks and no dead money...
Antonio Smith, Kevin Walter, Owen Daniels, Wade Smith all can be restructured or cut to save significant cap money... not to mention that Schaub, Joseph, Foster, Myers, and maybe AJ can all restructure to say significant cap room if the team needs something done. Most important, though, is the team is in healthy cap situation moving into next year when Cushing has to get done.
