imagine if the CBA hadn't gone through and salary cap jumped up. 1. would the cotls have the money to sign AV? 2. Would Givens had gotten such a lofty deal from the Titans? 3. Other teams would have be FORCED to release players. 4. McGinest would have been released but maybe the Browns wouldn't have thrown such money at him. 5. Deion might not have gotten entranced by the big dollars and maybe he would still be here for the Superbowl. I feel the jump in salary cap hurt the Pats this past year, but the Pats will get their revenge this coming year. And I'm saying it right now, the Pats will win the Superbowl in 2008.
