    So the reigning Superbowl champions (Packers), the AFC Champion (Steelers), and the New England Patriots who share the highest odds at winning the superbowl and had the best record last season are the least affected by the lockout...and the rich get richer.

    The Steelers are reportedly 10m over the cap though. They are going to have some tough cuts to make. So they might even take a step back this year.

    How the heck did that happen? Is it all from Big Ben's contract? I guess James Harrison and Troy P. too. I thought they were more conservative than that.

    How will the Pats do in this condensed preseason..

    Always thought of BB and his crew as very methodical and calculating. This abbreviated preseason, does not seem to afford the usual methods, so decisions will have to be made quicker and efficiently.

    Confident that he and his management team have hunkered down and planned for all of the possible contingencies, and we probably in better shape than most organizations..

    My main concern is that due to teams having to spend to 99% of the salary cap(or 90%), will salaries for mid-range or "bridge" players will be inflated. Matt Light comes to mind...

    The whole FA system has changed, BJGE comes to mind..

    I gazed into my crystal ball, and do not come up with an answer.. whaddayathink??

    Our 1st preseason game August 11... seems like our Training Camp will be short:mad:


    I hope we play our useless scrimmage games at 50-75% effort; they mean **** and training camp is short. Focus more on training half a ss pre-season games
