No question about that. Now if you ask, do they do it well, now that's a horse of different color. In another week when the Texans are trying to get their final 53 man roster complete along with signing 8 players to their practice squad and have to restructure $5 million plus in salaries, some fans will say, see they doing a wonderful job managing the salary cap.

Yeah.... getting healthy at the end of the season wasn't going to help this team win at home. Unless the Bengals pulled one out of their butts & came to Reliant, we'd have got beat at home.

Playing well at the end of the season...... that's another myth. The Bengals won 5 of their last 6 but were 1 & done thanks to a poorly playing Texans team. The Ravens lost 3 of their last 4.

The important thing, is to know that if you play the best game you've ever played in your life, you can get to the next level & trust that the guy next to you will play his absolute best.

That's why you see Shane Vareen & Steven "Who" Riddley play out of their minds in the play offs, Danny Moorhead.... JAG on any other team, just like the Patriots entire secondary... but they beat us.

Jacoby Jones is one play away from being the Super Bowl MVP (in my mind & for this argument), because he "stepped it up" That aging defense had one more game in them & they let it all hang out on the goal line.

Maybe it was because they were close for the last 4 years & they knew that however "good" they were those previous years, it wasn't good enough.

As long as they aren't tying themselves to Eric Winston & Kevin Walter or players of their ilk..... it's all good.

Tell that to the Giants when they went on a tear the 2nd half of the season and decided not to rest players when they had the opportunity. Then they tore through the playoffs and beat the Patriots in the superbowl. That was some kind of momentum.

Jacoby could always flash on occasion. He failed in Houston because he could never step up when the team needed him. As far as Jacoby stepping it up for the Ravens I think it was more of one of his occasional flash games that just happened to be the superbowl rather than Jacoby turning something on because it was the superbowl. When it was time to step it up for the Texans in the playoffs he failed miserably in the Baltimore game. I suspect he will be back to his usual self.

Actually, if you're referring to the 2011 Giants, their regular season record for games 9-16 was 3-5. The three wins did happen in the final four games, but it was hardly going on a tear for half a season. The reason they decided not to rest any players is because if they had lost any one of those final four games, they would have been out of the playoffs (Their final RS record was 9-7). But if you want to make it sound like it's because they wanted to keep the non-existent momentum, go right ahead.

The Texans in 2013 are only utilizing about 85-88% of the actual fully allotted salary cap because they've restructured so many contracts in recent years past. (mortgaged the future) The other 12-15% has been borrowed from future years. This is a big reason why the Texans depth is so thin because all they can afford is minimums, vet minimums or maybe a tad more. Borrowing $12 -$15 million in advance to pay players today doesn't sound like much until you consider $12-$15 million would pay for 4 to 5 $3 mil a yr players this year. Like I said some see this buy now pay later strategy...as it's all good and some of us don't. The 53 man roster will be determined by as much as anything is what the Texans can afford vs who are really the very best 53 players available.

If you want to see how this strategy works out, go watch an Astros game. You can't have a roster full of superstars, but you must pay the ones you have at various positions and fill in the rest via the draft and FA. IMHO, Smith and Kubiak seem to be on the same page, drafting well and getting fantastic UDFA's. We're thin at some positions right now because both Smith and Kubiak were learning how to get in the same book for a few years, much less the same page of the same book. I can't begin to imagine how much influence Phillips has had in this.

This is the way great organizations like the Steelers and Patriots keep reloading and staying in contention.

There is no cap in baseball. The last 3 years the Texans have started with their backs up against the salary cap wall (little or no room). It doesn't appear that there is any relief in the near future. This puts the Texans at a distinct disadvantage because they've consistently pushed money to future years, year after year. The Steelers and Patriots are NOT having to restructure contracts 3 years in a row. The Texans have converted quite a few of today's salaries to tomorrows dollars. When Mario became a FA and his $20 million salary came off the books the Texans still started the new year over the cap. Yep, these guys are doing a swell job.

I wouldn't say I'm an expert at the cap game; you will have to educate me here as to how the Texans have been in a bind.

I'm by no means a cap guy and to my naked eye it looks like you've done some homework. That said, if this is the case how are the Texans going to sign #99? The owner and the GM are on record saying locking up JJ like forever, is the priority.

Is he going to be the only player on the team?

You missed the analogy, evidently.

In regards to the Texans, they are getting themselves on track, imo. They are concentrating on signing their star talent for the future and drafting wisely enough to allow a lot of the overpaid talent form three years ago to go by the wayside. I seriously doubt that Manning and Joseph will be on the team next year or in two years at the most. There are a number of players who could be gone and we see the team getting ready for them to be gone. Wade Smith, Myers, Antonio Smith, Owen Daniels all could be gone after this season. We see the players projected to replace them learning those positions right now.

When you convert $8 mil of today's salary to a signing bonus you pay the player the money up front, in full and then spread the $8 mil over the future years of contact (max 5 years). If you start each new year with little or no salary cap room (< than $10 mil and part because some the reason is restructured money) and let's say you have 18 free agents to replace and big star salary to renew, < $10 mil doesn't go very far when you've to replace a bunch of FA and renew a big contract. You usually end up with a bunch of scraps for depth. Puts you in a Bind, particularly with any key injuries.

Good Question. If I am JJ's agent I'm asking/wanting a $100 mil+/$20 mil a yr contract. (You also have to sign Cush next yr). So if you pay JJ & Schuab $20 mil a piece (2 players =35% of cap) that will leave you $45 mil to sign 24 D players and $45 mil to sign 24 O players. It's actually much worse than that when you take in to account AJ, Foster, Brown & Joseph's salaries. Can't win that kind of payroll. Better off trying to get 3 first rds + for JJ.

My guess is OD, Antonio and Myers are gone after this season. If Schaub even slightly falters this year he is done but will be gone after next season either way. And even though we wont want to say it but Dre will be asked to restructure lower or be released.

Watt isn't going anywhere.

Yup they have done a nice job moving forward

There you were cobbling together an impressive sounding analysis and then you threw a landmine in front of yourself.

By the way, Schaub's cap hit in 2014 is $14.5 mil and he won't have a $20 mil cap hit even in the last year.
