I've wasted too much time in this thread. You have a twisted reason for every statement you make and your analytical skills are severely lacking.
It is OK for a very talented team to be up against the cap. This is a very talented team. Your favorite team, Indy apparently, is under the cap because they are a young team with onegreat player and several above aaverage players that are all very young.
And in case you have forgotten, your favorite team had the best qb of all time for over a decade and only has one ring to show for it. Think about that for a minute. You think in 3 years that Luck's contract isn'tgoing to put indy in a world of hurt? Their owner was just lamenting the fact that they only won one ring with Manning. The colts are a 3 or 4 win team without Luck. The Texans will win more games than that with a QB that is half as good as luck and then they will have the chance to draft a franchise QB.
Other than luck which players do the colts have that you would take over the Texans hands down? If that list is more than three or four players we know the problem, it is your knowledge.
Do you always insult those who don't agree with you? Let's turn the tables, first Indy is not my favorite team. I do respect what they have done, how they have handled the Manning situation and the decisions seem to have worked out well whether you agree with what Irsay has done or not.
No doubt about it Luck will be signing one of the largest QB contracts ever when it's his turn. That doesn't stop SMART front offices from signing good players. Baltimore signed Flacco to a $100 million contract this year. Also this year the Ravens were able to sign THREE FREE AGENT (3) Pro Bowl players. Signing 3 pro bowl players is something the Texans could not do even if they wanted to because they didn't have the money to do it. According to your logic this makes the Texans better.
Come March every year for the last four years, day 1 of the beginning new league year the Texans have NOT had enough money to meet the basic minimum financial obligations. Each year every year they have had to borrow money from future years to meet those obligations. According to your logic the Texans are doing a fine job of managing the salary cap.
The Texans strategy and logic for the last 3 years has not been based on who is best player we can get to fill an empty or needed position but who is the best player they can get at the league minimum to fill a needed position. That is a big difference. That is the difference in a good player and a below average player. The Texans strategy and logic consist of finding cheap puzzle pieces to sign and draft that fit their puzzle. The priority for player acquisitions are based on [b]limited dollar signing ability and not what is the best available talent they can sign. And According to your logic the Texans have no salary cap problems and even though can't sign any good FA players the last 3 years. According to your logic Band Aid Management makes the Texans better. The scoreboard says something completely different.
