Who's worried about the pending uncapped year?

If its uncapped what happens in 2011? I mean are teams that give out rediculously overpriced contracts just skrewed?
Once upon a time Snyder had a Redskins dream team many in the NFL essentially gave the SB trophy to Snyder because of all the talent before the season started. Ultimately Spurrier took them to 7-9 record that year.

For years Jerry has found ways around the cap and brought in “premier talent” and yes the Cowboys go 12-4 or 13-3 then lose their first playoff game. Cowboys have not won a playoff game since 1996 which tells me they are spoiled and don’t have the balls to make it to the SB.

It's teams like New England I worry about

With an uncapped year, we really see how Jed is as an owner. In the first couple of years we will see if he is more like his dad or like his uncle when it comes to spending and whether or not he cares about finances or about winning.

I am fairly sure that will be the perception around here. But the point is, as far as I am aware, in those days the family fortunes were in good shape and Eddie had access to a lot of money. I doubt they are anywhere near as wealthy, relatively, now and I doubt the youngster has the same clout in getting his hands on the dough.

But before it is too late, get the cap renewed.

I like the way Pat Kirwan put it in a recent chat on NFL.com:

Question: No salary cap in 2010, is Jerry Jones going to ruin the NFL?

Answer: He won't be able to. And the reasons are as follows:

The restricted free agency will be expanded to six years of service and will reduce the free agent pool by 100s. Every team will be able to have three tags (franchise, transition) instead of 1, which will reduce the free agents another 50 or so. And then there are restrictions on the top eight teams, which may or may not apply to him. Sorry, Jerry.

So that means we get to keep Baas!!! YAY!!!!!

Pat Kirwan is right. The uncapped year will hurt the NFL bottom-feeders more than the elite teams. The playoff teams will just hold onto their talent for another season leaving the bottom-feeders to rely solely on the draft.

Don't expect many blockbuster signings at the start of free agency.
Draft well or die.
jerry jones is gonna empty his wallet.

Completely wrong. He can over pay for backup and borderline starters. Once he goes bankrupt and broke, he'll ask congress for a bailout and Obama will grant it.

You can't let "America's team" fail.

Id actually prefer no salary cap to be honest, I don't think it would make the NFL stale... but return to how the league used to be

If he wants to overpay for backups then let him, I don't know why it would make anyone sad, it would just continue to f**k the Cowboys over for even longer.

Allow me to rephrase. There won't be much WORTH emptying his wallet for. That make you feel better??

Edit: Furthermore, if the Cowboys are one of the final eight teams, that would restrict his FA movement even further.

No one still answered my question. If there is an uncapped year and someone really overpays for some players. Then a cap is instituted the folloswing year. Are these teams screwed and have to release half there team to make up for it? Or is there some knind of cap incetive thing in their contract where if their is a cap their salary lessens? What happens?
