Saints over the cap?

Is that still going to happen? I heard something about it every year after 2010, yet they got their players. But the last few I had not heard crazy thoughts they'll be gone over the cap. 

Saints actually have money and 2 good draft class the previous years. Lots of cheap talent, league ******.

LOL. I mean EVERY year I heard how the Saints were in Cap **** AND Drew Brees was on the decline. EVERY year I have been here, I read it from the rivals posters. Now, we managed to sign just about everyone we wanted and Brees is having his best year ever. LOL

There was the matter of multiple 7-9 seasons with zero talent on the defensive side of the ball. Had nothing to do with Brees, but it had plenty to do with the cap.

Nice red herring quip...lol. What was true in the past was true in the past. What is true now is true now. The existence of one doesn't remove the reality of the other, despite what the individual I was responding to might choose to believe.

The reality is that the Falcons are now going through what the Saints previously went through. 

Cheers.

Not even close. We have soooo much more talent on both sides of the ball than the Saints had in their stint of unusual stinkiness. Neal, Jones, Jarrett, Kazee...vs. who? The talent is all young and now you just add a piece each year. On offense, we have a ? at RB and are solid at all other skill positions. I won't even get into the differences in cap position. If we elect to resign Jarrett and give Julio another raise, we may start to get close if we cut our way into a ton of dead cap space to make those moves. 

Don't confuse results with process.  Its a common mistake.

You're clearly missing the point (which isn't surprising) ...severe lack of quality depth behind your starters is the common denominator. 

Given, the quality of the Saints defensive starters has drastically improved, but so has the depth behind those starters. 

Can't say the same for the Falcons this season. 

Cheers.

The Saints had neither good talent or quality depth on the defensive side of the ball.  Don't think I missed a thing.
