While the NFL has a salary cap, it is very flexible. The Patriots have proved that the last half decade. Tedy is playing at around $2 mil a year, and Brady took a $5 mil SALARY CAP cut (not pay cut). He did so by turning his salary into basically one, big signing bonus.
I'm not ripping on the Patriots. It's no different than when the Steelers went on their amazing stretch.
Yeah, this didn't make any sense. Just wanted to talk about the Superbowl and everything of interest was already talked about in the Game Commentary Forum.
So what your saying is this, players are taking paycuts and the Pats are lumping alot of the players salaries into signing bonuses. Any team in the NFL could do the same thing it isnt a Patriot rule. I think that its coaching and a very efficiently run front office. Oh wait did i say any NFL team, let me correct that ant NFL team except for the Lions.
But seriously nothing is stopping any other team to follow suit and im sure alot of them already do this, players just seem to want to play for Billick and they respond well to his methods of team before individual.
