these arguments keep getting shot down, and shot down, and then the final grasp is "what about eric winston?". well, we dont know. he wasnt worth what he thought he was, but with our inability to replace him, winston is worth more than we thought.
either that or they devolve into wanting another coach to bump up against the cap in the same manner. if you want another coach, or you dont like an approach, try arguing that route. to say we're not managing the cap well just doesnt make a lot of sense.
edit: MSR dale, good link.
I guess when you completely ignore the facts it's easy to assume how arguments get shot down. If you were better informed, not so much. When Wade and Ninja's $13 million salaries along with the other 13 other 2014 Texans Free agents salaries come off the books next year ($21 Million), the Texans are still only able to start the new league year come March only $8 million under the cap. You don't need know math to understand this, simple arithmetic will suffice.
