I have no doubt that every team is going to have a tough time dealing with free agency. However, we know a few things: (1) some teams (like ours) cannot sign anyone of significance in free agency, (2) a lot of teams (like ours) are going to have to let good people go to get under the cap, (3) only some teams can afford to sign free agents (i.e. the Eagles), and (4) those free agents will sign somewhere (however long it takes to get deals done).

So, unless one of my premises is wrong, the Eagles should benefit.

I just not sold on that! Nothing against you but it seems some how the FO and Gibbs saw this coming and know more then we do! I could be wrong but look at all the players lining up to do thier part! Like in the Great depression the people that kept thier head made money not lost! The thing that I see here is it is going to be a big buyers market. There is going to be a lot of players with very little money out there...can we agree on that? Also agents as well as players may or maynot wanted to sign contracts with big money player like Danny S out there in 07! The one thing that gets me is if nothing is done by monday and the cut come down look at all the players without jobs? I would think Upshaw would be in the hot seat? Those players most likely maynot find money from other teams that they would have had if things were the same as in 05! The owners can really show restraint and get some great deals this freee agentcy!

It just makes me sick that we finally has a decent season and next year we will have to take a step back. But i guess the skins front office can only blame themselves with all those big FA signings a couple of years ago for over the hill players.
Such doom & gloom. And what's wrong with pro sports being about the money? That's why it's "pro." Good thing, too, because that means that smart business people can devote full time to preparing for that eventuality and put a plan in place. The Redskins won a Super Bowl in a strike season. I bet the Joe Gibbs team comes out on top again!

Stand back and watch the moves the front office at the Redskins and other teams (and the union) make to cope with this and enjoy the show. It's the game between the seasons.

Re: Ready for a set back in 2006

Am I the only one who blames Vinny for our present cap problems?

He is, afterall, solely responsible for the fall of the mighty 49ers by doing this same crap.

There is a reason that Marty's 1st order of bussiness was to chase him out of town!

I pictured him as the evil advisor whispering in the naive king's ear during all those idiotic high priced free agent signings a few years past.

It's off-topic, but I agree. I even think Brunell's salary was well worth it. I'm not saying Brunell was a stud or solely responsible for getting us to the post-season, but seeing the post-season for the first time in 6 years was worth every penny we gave to every player.
