I'd love to know what pressure was applied to those teams that were oh lets say over 15% under the cap last year and this year. After all does the CBA not contain a lower limit of spending as well as an upper limit.

Yet when I look at this list i see the same old faces not complying with this aspect of the CBA

Now I know Goodell and Mara are the main reasons we are in cap hell, but I think the players Union who approved the punishment have to take some of the blame.

It is easy to punish those that can and do spend, but wrong to punish those that plead poverty.

Well thats what it reads like to me

just ran some calculations 5 teams have still 18% or more to spend

Bengals
Browns
Jaquars
Eagles
Buccs

6 more still have over 10% to spend

so over a third have over 10% to spend yet, and union think everything is ok

I still can't wrap my head around how much cap space the Eagles have. Makes no sense!

There is a date at which they have to meet the cap, both lower and upper. I don't believe we've hit that date yet. Even then only the top 53 contracts are counted. The real date is just before the season starts when roster limitations kick in.

That's why the numbers are so out of walk in march.

Everyone totally needs to let this issue go.
No matter how hard it is, or how little sense it makes.
Let it go. And let's move on.
It does no good, letting it fester.
I'll let it go in the next four to five years after we finally stop feeling the ramifications of losing $18,000,000 in cap space for two back-to-back years. That is a minimum of 8-10 players we had to give up on and let go somewhere else, including to division rivals. I am actually too much of a fan of the Redskins and the game of football to just let this go. The damage will last a lot longer than the actual penalty, and so will my outrage for this 100% complete raping of my team and my favorite sport.

For years the Eagles didn't make use of their vaunted cap space as the team continued to flounder in the playoffs.

Then they decided to use their cap space to acquire a truckload of veterans and that left them out of the playoffs and in last place in 2012.

Meanwhile Josh Wilson was outplaying Asomugha.

Let's focus on the draft and developing our own players for 2013.

This team can be better than last year's club if we see younger players like Jenkins, LeRibeus and Hankerson step up and contribute.

Try saying the Serenity Prayer instead.
I would bet my whole paycheck this week, that you will feel better as a result.

If you could attack John Mara with absolutely no repercussions what so ever, would you and what with?

Gonna go with you bet your ass I would and I think I'd use a tomahawk to the face.
