    Thanks for the recaps and updates, Scott.

    I’m not worried about Licht’s management of contracts and the salary cap .. but his challenge will get tougher in the years to come, which is a natural outcome of drafting well (if you draft crap players, nobody has to worry about escalating second contracts!). In the long run it’s much better to draft well and then have to make some hard decisions with quality players later on. But then, if you continue drafting well, you’ll always have a supply of quality talent ready to step up and replace guys who though very good, are simply too expensive to keep.

    Jason Licht wants to be Bill Belichick, and thus to have his “problems” to deal with (including all those playoff runs, division wins, and Super Bow rings to have to contend with) … and we want him to be Bill Belichick, only better!

    Eventually there will be cap casualties, trades, hurt feelings, tough decisions. What’s good is now we have a system in place, draft strategy, cap management, coaching. You know Naplesfan the one thing Licht has like Belichick is a franchise Q.B., so hopefully we are on our way to having the Pats problems.

    Heard on ESPN Insiders yesterday that the Titans are waiting on Mariotta due to his injuries and Winston’s deal will probably get done first due to his passing style, i.e. pocket passer. Also, I like this recap of old Fab 5s when you can not make a current one. Also, when the Fab 5 are skipped for some reason or another, could you put that out. I go look and when I can’t find any on Friday, I’m not sure if it is just coming out late or there never will be one for the week.
