See I'm right there with you and feel like I'm one of the few that actually likes the position we're in. I think Rick and Olsen have been doing a great job the last several years in regards to our contracts, players and cap.
I'm also one that's glad we didn't spend crazy during the uncapped year bc that would have directly effect our future cap position. The league warned not to play fancy Enron accounting with contracts that year and the Texans listened.
Plus there was plenty of talk about how the cap would NOT significantly increase during the first several years of the new CBA and that it would be gradual increase and/or relatively flat. The Texans are smart enough to know that and didn't "plan" for a huge cap increase just to sign high $ FA's. otherwise we'd actually be in cap hell right now!
