Sorry but some need to re read this thread.
Not really. No one on this earth would have thought buffalo would give mario a 25m injury exception. Who does that and who in their right mind would turn that down. It was always known that if he got out the door, it was over. 40m wouldve have been acceptable, but when buffalo offered what they did, the texans didn't have a chance. Sometimes that happens and the texans cap was in worse shape than what was initially known. I never thought briesel would be back and meyers was 50-50. The flat cap for the next couple of years is going to restrict alot of deals going forwar.

I did.

It's the nature of free agency. Those "A" list names will always be overbid for in free agency. There are too many bad organizations and organizations with priorities other than winning: selling tickets, getting the fan base excited, etc... Once he hit free agency, it became a foregone conclusion that his market value would far exceed his worth to a successful football team focused on winning. That is why I made the point that the Texans indicated their true feelings about him when they did not work out his contract after the 2010 season. Once that didn't happen and he was destined for free agency, he was gone.

No offense to Buffalo, but they were stupid, very, very stoopid for spending that much money on Williams... They did it to prove to their fan base that they are somehow still relevant... A bold gamble, but a stupid gamble based on what he will bring them...

*Notice, I called him "Williams" and not Mario*

You are saying you knew a team would give Mario a huge injury exception like 25 million? I think we all knew he would get a huge contract but I never thought it would include a 25 million dollar injury exception.

I believed he would get a huge chunk of guaranteed money on the front end- in some form. I thought the number would be much too large for a wise team to bid against.
