I knew the Boys would not have much space to do much next year in free agency, but I saw this article on Spotrac.com (http://www.spotrac.c...-cap-space-420/) and the gravity of the situation really hit me...

 

How did it get this bad?

 

On Tuesday, Spotrac.com released its estimated figures for the amount of cap space each team has (or doesn't have) entering the offseason:

 

1) Oakland Raiders -- $63,633,401
2) Jacksonville Jaguars -- $50,399,782
3) Cleveland Browns -- $46,220,904
4) Indianapolis Colts -- $33,552,464
5) Miami Dolphins -- $32,013,542
6) Green Bay Packers -- $27,264,983
7) Minnesota Vikings -- $23,943,670
8) Cincinnati Bengals -- $23,345,599
9) New York Jets -- $22,297,475
10) Carolina Panthers -- $20,998,273
11) Philadelphia Eagles -- $20,957,239
12) Buffalo Bills -- $19,283,662
13) Washington Redskins -- $14,759,124
14) Atlanta Falcons -- $13,661,973
15) Denver Broncos -- $12,414,394
16) Baltimore Ravens -- $11,497,810
17) Tampa Bay Buccaneers -- $11,192,698
18) New York Giants -- $9,277,474
19) Chicago Bears -- $7,304,912
20) Tennessee Titans -- $6,521,842
21) New England Patriots -- $5,619,465
22) San Francisco 49ers -- $5,166,959
23) Houston Texans -- $3,319,618
24) Seattle Seahawks -- $2,551,491
25) Arizona Cardinals -- $2,302,549
26) St. Louis Rams -- $888,840
27) Kansas City Chiefs -- $333,457
28) San Diego Chargers --   -$2,754,251
29) Detroit Lions -- -$5,313,331
30) Pittsburgh Steelers --   -$10,502,280
31) New Orleans Saints --   -$13,741,318
32) Dallas Cowboys --   -$24,117,913

Goodness. And the really bad part is that the ways in which you continue to operate that far in the negative will ultimately increase your deficit. The only way to really get out of this is to dump it all an suffer through a couple of really bad seasons. At some point, dem chickens are going to come home to roost.

From #4 to #11 they will make some major improvements with that cap space. Indy is the one team that would scare me.

Thank you Jerruh for putting our Cowboys in this great position cap wise. I really don't know how he and other management plan on getting the Cowboys out of this hole, but I really hope they start thinking more along the lines of how teams like New England operate - that is, stop giving large/extended contracts to players on the wrong side of 30, and operate a bit more shrewdly when it comes to resigning veterans or bringing aboard new FAs.

 

Having a successful draft would immediately help this - and my hope is that Will McClay will improve our drafting significantly where we won't have to always fish for FA's, but will have more younger talent like the Seahawks that doesn't cost and arm & a leg. The Draft is our only hope of getting out of salary cap hell and competitng in the near term.

Nah, as another cowboy fan already assured me, they will restructure some contracts (although as I understand it, Ware and Romo aren't among them), cut a few dead weight players (Austin) and be just fine by opening day. ;)

Wow. That can ya'll been kicking down the road is now a dumpster....and for all the people who come up with all these easy fixes need to ask themselves a question. What business in the world can continue to operate in the red and still put out a good product? And for the people who love to talk about how profitable the team is should see this as the reason the team operates like this. If there were other consequences for being so bad with contracts besides losing Jerry would have changed long time ago. But since he's is making money why change?

Who said they have been/are putting out a good product NOW, much less continue to do it?  They put out a mediocre product at best.

Reading some of the predictions from last year and from years before I'd say the fan base here thinks their putting out a good product. Every year you see predictions of 11+ wins. Hell even with last years team and this cap report I see fans saying 11-12 wins for next year! And that's with a much harder schedule. Is it all fans? No. But the ones that do are very loud about it.

And that's only because there are no sure fire ways to do it, but there sure are ways NOT TO! And Jerry wrote the book on that...

It looks horrible. . But it's actually fixable.
But you guys who want to keep Ware
And sign guy's like Dez , Murray and Hatcher to big contracts should understand that's how teams get into this cap situation.

How did it get this bad?   Really?     We gave a backup C who had shown nothing aside from the ability to get pushed back into the pocket 2 mil/season.  And there were worse deals, much worse.

It's time to get young and cheap ksk.
Can't hold on to players anymore, got to find the new marquee players.

It's been time, Blue, but we keep on grasping at straws.    I'd be all for a rebuild.

The thing is, if jerry would start trying to trade some of these players now and come away with a bundle of mid and late round picks the turn around could come a lot quicker. But jerry probably still thinks he is a player away from a SB.

That is a very bad word on these boards. I've said that a few times and people were not happy. It doesn't have to be a complete rebuild but they definitely need to get younger in some key areas.

Well let's hope this is a wake up call.  Hope, ya, that's the word.

 

All we can do is hope is that they (meaning Jerry) wake up and recognize what is wrong with this picture.  Maybe it's meaningless hope, but hey, what else can we do?  Hope they continue to focus on the draft, and hope they only give big extensions to those that deserve it. 

 

One startling note there is the Seattle Seahawks.  They have a bunch of free agents this year and the oncoming years, and only 2 million dollars in cap money?  Obviously they can move stuff around, but that's still a bit surprising.  This just proves just how difficult it can be in the cap era.  There's no way they keep that team together after a few years. 

 

Still, no team should never be 24 million over the cap.  Sure, they'll work their way out of it.  But they are putting themselves in a terrible position right off the bat.
