isn't the derek carr restructure alone going to be inbetween 20-23 million freed up?


Yes, it will shove 20-25M onto already overburdened future caps. Why we should do everything we can to avoid this nightmare scenario.

I’m generally an optimist to a fault, but I need someone to explain to me like I’m 5 how we have any chance at competing in the near future.

We do seem to have improved the staff, which is a good step. But the team is made up of expensive and aging stars, and the cap situation restricts our present and future. I was cool with the “win now” approach when the window was open with Brees, but that’s over now. We basically have to hit on every draft pick every year, which has not been the case.

We aren’t winning a Super Bowl any time soon, and based on how this looks we could maybe make the playoffs by winning a shite division. But even that’s not a given as we’ve seen the last few years.

If our cap strategy continues to be the same, then what’s the endgame? It seems like things will get worse before they’re better, but there’s just no light at the end of the tunnel as to when that could be.

Competing at what? Our ceiling is at most 10 wins, win the nfc south, and hope to get lucky in the playoffs.
That is our strategy going forward. Realistically, we will be .500 or slightly below, about a 30-35% chance of winning the division. Very low possibility of winning a playoff game, pretty much zero chance we win more than one playoff game. Our floor is about as low as you can imagine, double digit losses is very possible.

The Saints were a playoff team for almost 20 years.. They are clinging to what's left of the talent they stockpiled during that time, but the window closes for everyone eventually

Patriots.. Seahawks.. Colts.. Steelers.. Packers..

Perennial playoff teams for a decade, now in the middle of some soft rebuild until another hall of fame QB lands there
