I agree with that ....

When plays are designed for Walter .... He makes the most of them. Case in point the Cincy game with the nasty route combination where Walter runs a short slant under the TE who ran an out route the opposite direction. Result ? Walter is wide open for a score .... Dont think Ive ever seen a guy that wide open that close to the goal line .... at least in the NFL.


Here's a video of the play - poor quality but the only one I could find without the entire drive.


This video shows a much better view of the route combination but is of the entire drive. Play starts at 6:10ish of the video.

Thats just another example of Kubiak's route combinations being absolutely brilliant. That was also the only time all year I recall that combination being run - He saved it for when it mattered.

How huge were Yates, OD and Walter on that drive? OD started, Walter moved the chains prior to grabbing the TD and Yates was throwin lasers like he didn't know any better. Pacman Jones....lol....when you mug a guy, the first thing you do is walk away. Not throw your hands up and look at the ref! GUILTY!!!

There's a difference of opinion between owners and players on where the salary cap will be next year (and 2014 for that matter), but the owners are claiming between the artificially propped up cap for 2011 and 2012, and the increase in benefits that will be paid, the salary number will be basically flat next season. I'm thinking in this issue, the owners are very probably right, and the players are very probably in for a disappointment.
Daniel Kaplan (@dkaplanSBJ) tweeted out a couple days ago the projected salary cap numbers for the next few years. They're going to be pretty flat through 2015.

2013 -- $121m
2014 -- $122m
2015 -- $125m
2016 -- $130m

Looks like the Texans will be in salary cap hell for quite a while.

Im not sold on those numbers. The cap is rumored to rise significantly over the next few years with the new TV deal.



Read an article last night stating the Texans would have roughly $24.8m in cap space for next season while the Dolts would have a league high $43m.

Here's a link by John Clayton discussing the cap space of each team. Clayton does state that the cap may not rise by much over the next three seasons.

Quote:
Houston Texans general manager Rick Smith had a tough 2012, deciding to keep Arian Foster and Chris Myers, but it cost the Texans Eric Winston and Mario Williams. The Texans are fifth on the list with $24.8 million of room.

Just sayin ....
Thanks for supporting what I was saying. I don't see Walter being cut until we have someone who can give us almost same efficiency. Can't just look at contract and his age.

Default Re: Kuharsky blog: 2013 Cap Carnage...A. Smith and K. Walter

I don't think we were in as much cap hell this year as a lot of people think. I think that Rick Smith was just positioning us for the future by jettisoning guys that were going to be problems in the near future and creating room on the roster for some of the younger, cheaper guys.

I think we're going to be set up OK for the future although I expect us to see some more name players shown to the door (and SheTexan have more rants about it. )

Although I question the strategy of getting rid of the entire right side of our line, I think getting rid of Winston was probably a good, pro-active move. As was getting rid of Mario and Demeco. (Brisiel and Dreessen, I'm not so sure about but we'll see.)

It's a hard-line strategy. He's got to draft well and sign the right FAs to make it work. But I think it's a reaction to the new salary cap rules and limitations and a good overall plan.

I really hope Walter stays through this season if only to see the All-22 film that's being offered this year and answer those questions.
Schaub seems to go thru different "favorite" receivers (as do most QBs). Not too long ago Walter was getting the ball but that seems to have slakened some. I don't know the reason for it. He doesn't excite you with his after catch moves but he is pretty accurate at bringing it in; often in the middle of the defense. If Martin can give us that okay maybe cut Walter but not just for the bucks.

Exactly, OD get the reception but it was created by Walter.

MSR. I think the hard work of Rick Smith has finally begun to pay off. Clearly, improvement must be ongoing and his work is far from done.

The strategy of the Texans' current Front Office has been to build through the draft and pick up free agents of good value. There has been plenty of gripe by message board members towards Rick Smith, but there is certainly NO question that the roster is light years ahead of when he took over. This is not intended to be a "Rick Smith" post but he's responsible for building the roster and managing the salary cap. Much has been talked about Wade Phillips and the addition of "his" players.... and it's much deserved. But this is the ultimate team game from on the field to behind closed doors. Kubiak, Smith and Wade all have to work together to accomplish things and all share the blame for failures.

Sticking to the Salary Cap aspect of things: Guys, we wouldn't be in this "salary cap hell" some call it if we didn't have good players. We're not overpaying for veteran washups any more. We're paying a lot because we have some of the best players at their respective positions. Period. We can gripe and complain about not going for the free agent splashes but it's because we're finally at a point where our own guys' contracts are up and they ARE the big name free agents. Andre Johnson, Arian Foster, Duane Brown, Connor Barwin, Chris Myers, Matt Schaub, etc. etc. As fans we get complacent with re-signing the same players but part of being a great team is having the roster of those guys that you WANT to re-sign.

On the flip side, there's going to be hard decisions like trading Demeco and cutting Winston. To me, that's a sign that we've finally made it to the big leagues. When we start replacing the guys we once thought were great, with the guys we've had on the squad that are developing up. I'm very very high on the work that Kubiak and Smith have been doing and where we're at as a team.

I love this strategy but for it to keep working means we HAVE to continue drafting well. Getting these contributors and paying them "peanuts" during the first few years is vital to having a GREAT team and being able to manage the salary cap.

I definitely think this is on target as it relates to 2013, and very possibly beyond.

Here's another article by Clayton going into why the rise in the cap number may not coincide with the increase in television revenues.

Quote:
If that sounds amazing, consider this: The salary cap in 2009 was $123 million, higher than what is projected to be in 2015.

Where did all the salary-cap money go?

The answer resides in what has happened during the first two seasons of the new collective bargaining agreement. When the management council and the NFL Players Association ran the numbers from the percentage of money going to the players, the salary cap in 2011 was supposed to be less than $120 million. It could have been as low as around $116 million.

To put more salary money into free agency last season, the union was able to shift some of the benefit money into salary money. The result was a $120.375 million cap in 2011.
He goes on to state that the 2012 salary cap would have been more in the $113.5 Million range if not for shifting of dollars from one category to another. In otherwords, the 2011 and 2012 cap amounts are artificially inflated to avoid absorbing the impact of the new CBA all at once.

Now perhaps they can find a way to continue to juggle money going forward, but obviously, there's only so much juggling that can be done, and I believe the NFL management is smart enough to understand that.

I was just clearing up the "Why" Kubiak is "enthralled by Walter's good hands." He has good reason.

He could very well be a cap casualty next season .... but you have to remember he already took a paycut this season. I have to wonder if they have a gentlemans agreement to honor that final year.

What all these plays designed for him to clear space or be the decoy do is make defenses "go to sleep" on Walter then you have a critical situation where Walter is the primary target .... even when #80 is on the field.


For all the complaints about Walter needing to be replaced , that guy is going to be missed something terrible when he's gone because of all those little things he does.
Gary will have a hell of a time replacing him .... Great hands , great route runner , excellent blocker and unselfish enough to wait for his shots. Not many guy's at a position full of diva's with those traits .... This team is lucky to have both he and #80.

KW is fine as a #2a or #2b as long as you have another receiver that can stretch defenses and make catches all over the field.

Really every time Kevin Walter is mentioned this same point has been made by at least one poster. anyone not thinking of his overall role when evaluating Walter is just not paying attention either on the field or to other posters on the board.

Walter doesn't do what fans want him to do and that's put up a lot of catches, touchdowns, fantasy points.

What Walter does do is everything the coaches ask of him and he directly contributes to the x's and o's success of a play.

Coaches have a vote, fans don't.

Kubiak & Smith asked him to take a pay cut last year and he did. From $3.5MM to $2MM salary. It wouldn't surprise me if they asked him to take a pay cut again. What would surprise me if they flat out released him and went with all unproven WRs (after AJ).

I don't see that happening OMT. I, like many others here, just can't see Gary going into battle with AJ and 4 rooks being thrown into the fire ah-la Kareem'esque. I really hope LaStar Jean comes on quickly. At least he has a couple of years in the system and it really made my ears hard when the DBs were making statements like "he's unecoverable". That sounds legit coming from team mates and then TC made comments about her observations which backed up what the players said. How sweet it would be to have another 'diamond in the rough' ferreted out by Rick Smith. Because we all know he's clueless and a worthless POS.

Last line is obviously
