Love this Falcon fan's post:

"win/win situation for the Falcons. Either we get Bush or push Saints closer to salary cap edge. Dimitroff wins again."


Your team is in decline pal. Gonzales will be MISSED. Steven Jackson, the normally reliable Saints killer is not what he used to be, and your offensive line has slipped while all the defenses (including ours) in the division have improved.

Like I said in the other thread:

When will these mouth-breathers realize that THERE ARE NO SALARY CAP CONCERNS AS LONG AS LOOMIS IS IN CHARGE. Jesus, every single off-season we're supposedly screwed because of the salary cap. Is that how pathetic things are in Atlanta now that all they can really celebrate is the Saints cap situation supposedly being bad?!

Agree 100%.

When all you have to get excited about as a fan is some other team's salary cap situation, it's a good indicator of your confidence in your team's upcoming season...

We have all of our priorities locked down and we improved our roster by signing Byrd and Bailey....people are still talking about the Saints' cap situation?

If a few weeks back the saints were not so close to the cap they would have put a 2nd round tender on him.Low end tender was only to buy time saints lucky someother team did not offer even more money for Bush.Hes a very good player well worth no easy worth the money.

Contract restructures don't have to be reported to the league office so I wouldn't be surprised if a few of our guys have restructured here recently to free up some extra money.

Re: Rumor: We matched offer for Bush

Didn't I read somewhere where he was hoping we wouldn't match because he wanted a chance to start? If true, I sure hope it doesn't affect his play - and I don't think it would. I'm just tossing spit balls...

In my world that's a good thing. If he was the type of player that cared more about the money than getting to play I'd be worried.

And that good sir is an excellent point!

Oh and by the way, the failclowns see a conspiracy over it all. LOL. They stink.

At some point, this gets really fishy.

How did they enter FA with $2m in cap space and do all that they did?

Its not a huge loss, though a little bit disappointing. It just kind of begs the question how all of this is happening with so little wiggle room.

Certainly wouldn't be the first time a team circumvented the cap...
