Time will tell but the Spiller decison is just example of having my doubts they learned anything at all. next year it will more than likely be Byrd and ellerbee,laurennitis and possibly but unlikely Fleener
yep, great that next year the healing begins but that does nothing for this year

Good information to know.
Looks like Ellerbe will be getting released, dude can't stay healthy at all.

And we can't do anything about this year, either. The cards are dealt. Now we should simply sit back and pull for our Saints. I just happen to have a bit more faith than some around here.

You're right that it can't be changed, but at what point do we say enough is enough and hope we are heard in the process. Maybe it has been and maybe that's what they're doing, righting the ship. I hope so. And I always pull for the Saints!

The whole cap issue came about from bad, or unlucky, personnel moves. Things even out over time. It was nothing we said. The ship just righted itself.

I don't know it was anything we said, but things do not just right themselves by themselves. Time is pretty much neutral on all things in life. The only way for things to change is for the people to change

Re: Salary Cap ‘Hell’ has Come and Gone for the New Orleans Saints

Great that this current "cap hell" phase has a potential ending. It really is. So thanks for the heads up.

Let's see how we go. Let's see if it makes a difference.

My hope is we have sufficient playing resources in all positions so that we do not have our fans having pre-game downers, whether or not we are constrained / restrained by cap issues. That is really what it is all about.

Ultimately I do not think money. I thinks Saints. How are they doing on the field.?

I believe 99% of Saints fans feel the same way, UK.

Yep. After Ellerbe misses this week, it'll already be basically assured to be void (contract). He isn't gonna play 90+% of the snaps going forward.
