    The Writer's Thread

    I know Tubbs and Vance both write for a couple websites. Do any of you other guys write at all as a hobby? If you do, post it on here. I have my own humble little blog that gets about 50 page views per article this isn't a shameless attempt to garner page views, I just figured I'd share some more football talk.

    Check out my most recent articles...

    I used to write for a Chelsea blog. I was invited to do so by the owner. Over time it became apparent that he and I disagreed over rather a lot regarding the team, he was uncomfortable with it and eventually I left. I also like writing movie reviews and have considered starting my own blog. But inertia is a beeyotch.

    How can the Giants only be two million under the cap when half the roster is free agents? They have $119 million tied up in just 30 players?

    Thanks for reading, Wax. The short answer is yes. But the more in depth answer...

    Eli Manning, Chris Snee, Corey Webster, Antrel Rolle, David Diehl, David Baas, Justin Tuck, Mathias Kiwanuka, Hakeem Nicks, Jason Pierre Paul, Steve Weatherford, Prince Amukamara, David Wilson, Linval Joseph, Terrell Thomas, Zak DeOssie, and Marvin Austin, 17 players, account for over $80 million. Throw in the dead room, and you're left with $87,382,665 against the cap. That's $34 million left to pay 36 other guys. That leaves exactly $947,703.75 PER PLAYER to sign the other 36. Basically, the Giants will have to gut their roster and start signing lots of young guys.

    Mind you they still have to bring Cruz back as well. There's a good chance, IMO that he leaves.

    Really good stuff. Both teams in NY are in real cap trouble. Not sure who will be worst the next couple years. If your the Giants, who do you cut now to get far enough under cap to sign the players they need.

    This makes NE's success all the more impressive. Winning consistently and miles below the cap.

    I started getting interested in the salary cap when Mike Sherman got canned as GM and the Pack brought in Ted Thompson in 2005. The dude has a few hard rules...
    -NO super old FAs unless they're for a one or two year contract (ex: Joe Johnson and Hardy Nickerson for Mike Sherman vs Jeff Saturday for Thompson)
    -Draft in quantity, search for value, sign sign sign sign sign...see what sticks
    -If you're not a star, you're butt is canned if you ask for a super big contract as a FA. Greg Jennings is likely gone in favor of Cobb, Nelson, Jones, Boykin and Ross

    Now, the Pack isn't run EXACTLY like the Pats and they haven't been as successful for as long, but they do things similarly. They rotate the stock, stay young, and keep a core group intact.

    I'm going with the Giants being successful just because they have Eli. They're still closer to a good team even with the loss of a few guys. Still trying to do the research on who they're going to cut, I can't find any obvious cuts. David Diehl is likely gone, and probably Justin Tuck, but to sign back the key guys and have enough to sign their picks, they'd probably still need another $8 million after cutting those two.
