re: Saints to release Pierre Thomas - bonethug0108
Oh god no. My wife watches that and it's horrible. I'm into those USA originals for the most part. And the Walking Dead. Don't get into too many series otherwise. More into comedy and action movies. And video games. And my kids when I make the time....

re: Eagles May Have Interest In Mark Ingram - bonethug0108
Depends on how many total FAs we lose and how many we sign (not counting cut players or untendered RFAs). And it would be next year we'd get it. June 1st is the cut off date for determining comp picks....

re: Eagles May Have Interest In Mark Ingram - bonethug0108
A lot of teams can pay more. That doesn't mean they will. It would take someone going out of market price to price us out completely($6+ mil). The biggest issue is whether and how much he wants to be here. That will determine if we are in or out from the start....

re: Saints to release Pierre Thomas - bonethug0108
And they kept Brady because of money? Wilfork? They signed Mankins to the contract to begin with because of money? Signed Amendola because of money? It's about the value. If play equals pay they keep you. If you are or they think you will under perform for what you are making or asking for then y...

re: Cap Update - bonethug0108
We cannot afford to cut Galette due to guarantees (which the new team takes on if traded). Not talking about signing bonus though as we are hooked for that. Basically we save $11.75 mil if he's traded, $10 mil if we convert his bonus, and we lose $750 k if he's cut. So cutting is not an option...

re: Saints to release Pierre Thomas - bonethug0108
Don't confuse money with value. They look at things like age and bang for buck value. It isn't straight cash otherwise they'd run with all rookie every year. If play equals pay they'll keep the guy. If the feel if won't they let him go....

re: Saints to release Pierre Thomas - bonethug0108
It's not inconsequential and I never meant to imply that. It is secondary however, especially with the money being so low. And Lofton has been poor the last two years. We could have saved almost as much converting his bonus if we wanted. Galette is about football in the sense that they don't t...

re: Saints to release Pierre Thomas - bonethug0108
Every move is in varying degrees about the cap. But good teams don't make moves JUST because of the cap like you guys are saying we did here. This was a move about football first. We could have cut several of players and saved more and all of them are worse bang for buck players. Clearly that ...

re: Saints to release Pierre Thomas - bonethug0108
Both. I NEVER said it was strictly one or the other. But if you look at the implications both money and play time wise, this is a move to get Ingram back(or another back if he bolts). We are clearing not just cash but also touches. If you look at what Trip says (echoing what Payton has said in th...

re: Cap Update - bonethug0108
The calculator adds back in the players taking over the released/traded player's spot in the top 51. So for each player we lose you have to take off about half a mil. So Thomas actually only saved 1.25 mil because someone took his spot in the top 51....

re: Cap Update - bonethug0108
I used over over cap which has it at $144.5 mil, so we're within a mil and a half. If these moves all happen we should have at least around $10 mil in space, which is plenty enough to get a CB and resign Ingram (which is i think are there first two goals). Depending on structure and other move...

re: Saints to release Pierre Thomas - bonethug0108
I'm not saying money is a nonfactor but $1.75 mil can be cleared in much better ways. Money clearly wasn't the only factor, especially considering his bang for buck....

re: Saints to release Pierre Thomas - bonethug0108
No Sproles was cut for more touches for Ingram and Robinson. Payton for whatever reason thought Cadet could be Sproles in the passing game but definitely not in the run game (only 10 rushes). They said everyone would make up for Sproles touches and everyone did. Ingram got more catches and run...

re: Saints to release Pierre Thomas - bonethug0108
It was about both. We had better ways to clear a measly $3.5m. It was a two birds with one stone move and Payton even said they wanted to clear some room in the backfield after the most was made....

re: Cap Update - bonethug0108
You must have missed the news that they were about to cut him when his agent reached out to discuss a pay cut instead. Since the pay cut hasn't been announced I'm going under that assumption that a cut is more likely right now. Edit: No problem. :cheers:...

re: Saints to release Pierre Thomas - bonethug0108
Because we don't trust KRob to carry the load? Because Payton REALLY likes Ingram? Because PT's release is likely more about clearing the backfield than cap room (much like Sproles last year)? There are reasons and whether they are good or not and whether they work out or not remains to be seen....
