What part of "we didn't have the money under the cap" is it that you're not understanding, BornaBuc?

No cap money...Derrick Brooks begs to differ. What big signings did he restructure for again?

From 12 Pro Bowlers to 0-We got hosed alright

Brooks clearly stated that he restructured so that we could keep the players we had - which is exactly what you're whining about.

Now that is precisely the attitude that got us into this mess in the first place.  We could have restructured several guys, brought in more with large bonuses paid later on, and screwed our cap for ANOTHER 5 years.  Do you think it's easy to make the decision to stand pat?  Think Gruden, Allen, Kiffen, and the Glazers didn't see all the moves the competition were making?  Think there wasn't a single area they wanted to improve?  Think Gruden and Allen don't know how the league works, and how quickly a losing season can get you fired?
The lack of patience is what screws up a cap.  While it may have cost us a few games, the reality is the managment stuck to the plan instead of abandoning it to buy some shiny new toys.  It's fiscal discipline, and the past lack of it is why we have such a talent lack on this team.  The fact that they held tight is pretty freakin impressive.

The plan is absolutely flawed then seeing as we suck AGAIN under Gruden and it really appears as though we're not going to look any better next year. Hurrah for the plan!

The Bucs head into the off-season with + $20 in cap space in the off season and that is flawed?  According to you Shaun King is great.

For several seasons now the plan has targeted the 2007 offseason as the lynchpin. You can't just hit the "reset" button on your players and salary cap, when you've made a bold move to win a championship and you have a GM who put you in a hole, you have to prepare to get yourself right and that takes years. If you don't understand that, then there's really no sense talking about it.

Exactly.  You can't win superbowls and have unlimited capspace.  We maxed out for chamionships runs and then we laid low for a while.
