    Yep. I agree. Well written. Keith explains the different scenerios with Carr in a way that even I can understand.:)

    Am I reading this right? If we cut Carr we only lose $4 million?


    Does Keith's $14 million cap projection take into account the $5 cap increase for 2007?

    Thats my question as well.... I was prepared for the Carr Cap Hit, but was also thinking it wouldn't be as bad as it could have been because of the Cap increase for 2007.

    I would say that the comments made by Kubiak himself points towards the fact that something MAY happen, not that it's going to, but that there is a chance. IMO that alone is enough for speculative thoughts on the subject :)

    I guess you hear what you want to hear when you hear that from Smitty.

    What I got, is that he is going to be looked at just like every other player, and it does not start and end with Carr as the problems with this franchise, like others think.

    I could be wrong though:shades:

    Exactly. No one in the organization is coming out and saying that he is their man. This is a good sign.

    If we only lose $4 million by cutting Carr I can see it happening if there aren't any takers on a trade. He makes way too much money to be a backup or a project which he basically is.

    Do you really think that each player is going to be looked at the same way? Do you think they will look at Carr the same way they do DeMeco? I think not.

    There are certain players that have jobs going into next season no matter what (e.g. Ryans, Williams, Daniels, Robinson, Johnson) and then are players that are truly being evaluated to determine if they should be on the roster. Carr falls into the latter category.

    Me too. From what I've read and heard multiple times now the cap hit would be a prorated cut of his bonus and not his salary and would only count about a little less than 5 mil TOTAL. This with the increase made me think it was worth it.

    Me too. In fact he glossed the part about winning the last two games and basically said 6wins wasn't good enough and that the QB didn't perform in some situations and that everything would be evaluated. I took it with an open mind and to me he almost seemed "on edge" about this years performance.
