  • Cap hit aside, cutting/moving Flynn saves real money, too. Like actual, real dollars. Maybe that can be put to better use than a guy everyone has just assumed is good enough to take us to a Superbowl if Russell gets hurt that is really just going to sit on a bench being a grump all year.

  • I was not clear enough. Real money really really does not matter. Real money can not be put to any use other than coaches paychecks.

    The NFL is playing the salary cap game to make sure franchises remain profitable and you have to follow those rules.

    The rules are simple, you can spend a hundred nfl bucks per year, anything you dont spend you can roll into next year.

    As many as Kirk Cousins had last summer.

    He came on in relief and led a come-from-behind victory against the eventual Super Bowl Champions.

    Led is a very strong word for the game you are espousing. Having watched that game I can tell you that the two passes that Cousins threw were both very easy passes where Cousins stared down the receiver and the safeties didn't make the correct read. In fact the In Route that was his first completion is a completion he made repeatedly in his highlights. You know the team that figured that out? Us. It was the same route that they were running when Jeron Johnson knocked down Cousins' pass. His game against Cleveland was good, but Cleveland's pass defense was not good last year.

  • After that Alex Smith trade, we'd be freaking stupid to outright cut him now.

Give the dude a chance and don't overreact or overthink preseason. Go Hawks. Lacy will rush for 1,100 and 10TDs. Bend the knee.
