we fell into the "Super Bowl" wage inflation trap. Just because the team won a Super Bowl doesn't mean everyone's an all-pro. You look at New England, and they are nearly 20 mill under the cap every year and they attract the best talent and never over pay. Loomis may not be the genius everyone says he is if he constantly overpays for overrated players.

Half the league is at least 10 million under the cap.
And it will be different teams next season. Ok so some historically more and less than others.

Of course they do. But:
1. Not many at all. We have one of the worst situations
2. We have serious issues. Like we can only play one side of the ball which fundamentally means the Saints aint all that, Brees or no Brees.
3. I don't give a damn about the other teams. Except, except, Tampa Bay,
Miami, Indianapolis, Cleveland and Cincinnati who could really mess with every other teams by offering a couple of key players "silly" money.

Re: Saints Cap Breakdown

I know Drew is taking the beating.. Not my point here... I am just shocked at the amount of extremely overpaid players we have..

Smith - 14.5m (Dead money 6.7m)
Vilma - 8.6 m (dead money 2.6m)

If we cut them we free up 13.8 million in cap


Surely with 13.8 we can do a whole hell of a lot better than Smith and Vilma for less?
