Default McNair and the Salary Cap

it's a fact the lackeys in here don't want to talk about, and keep deleting, but bob mcnair is sitting on millions of dollars he could be spending for on-the-field talent, despite being the second-highest revenue team in football and the beneficiary of the largest stadium gift in the history of the game. if the texans look to you like they do to me, namely an expansion team short on top-flight talent, then mcnair needs to be asked why he won't spend to the cap. the texans keep trading away draft picks and replacing them with free agents no one has heard of, who often make the minimum salary.

They delete it for a reason, you don't know what you are talking about.

If it's a fact, put the numbers in a post for all to see and let's argue the merits. No one is going delete facts, just baseless rants.

Here you go HD. This thread can be your venue for making your argument about McNair's abuse of the salary cap, etc. Please explain your position to everyone here and refrain from injecting this topic into multiple threads where it is off-topic.

Great HD, IMO that disproves your point. Look at the Clayton chart--the Texans are closer to the cap than the majority of teams (specifically 10 teams are closer than the Texans) and frankly closer than I would like them to be at this point in their development. IMO they need to keep a reserve so that they don't have to go hat in hand to the players to restructure contracts all the time whenever they see a FA they want to sign. Clayton's numbers are also from last summer and do not include the 8-9 guys that have gone on IR--part of why teams keep some room as well going into the season. They may not have much if any cap room at this point.

Let's assume for a moment that the salary cap numbers are current. Whom would you have had the Texans sign for the $3 mil remaining? What difference maker in last years FA class should the Texans have picked up?

Eleven teams are closer to the salary cap than the Texans. If the Texans have a problem, it's a league wide epidemic. I find it difficult to believe that McNair has a problem spending money after looking at some of the bonuses he's handed out this year:

Gary Walker - $11 million
Todd Wade - $10 million
Robaire Smith - $8 million
Marcus Coleman - $5 million
Andre Johnson - $5 million (option bonus)
Dunta Robinson - $4 million
Jason Babin - $2 million

I think the Gary Walker contract was a huge mistake.

I think that 3.3 million should go back to the public....namely, me.
