Salary Cap Problems
I know everyone wants changes, but what are the implications if we get rid of the following players:
Other Over Age 30 Players
I am not a salary cap person, but it seems to me that we have a lot of veterans with some very long contracts.
We may be limited in overhauling the team because of the cap.
I know the coach is not part of the salary cap, but how willing would the owner be to fire a coach with a $20M contract and 3 years left?

Re: Salary Cap Problems
Good points on the cap situation. I think JO's contract is up after 08, so he wouldn't be a cap problem. His contract was restructed before the season started I believe. McNair's contract might be a bit to swallow. Wasn't it a 5 year deal for $30-$33M w/ $20M guarenteed or payable in the 1st 3 years. Wasn't his bonus last year $11M? I'm not sure how much more bonus/guarenteed $ is in the contract. But if they cut him/he retires, all that $ that has been prorated over the life of the contract will be accelerated.
