    JJ has totally jacked up the Cowboys cap situation chiefly by handing out new contracts/restructures for players not worth the money or who's prime is passing. Dallas still has $7m in dead cap on Ratliff for crying out loud and he hasn't played for them in two years! JA made similar dumb moves on a smaller scale ($8m & a $3.5m signing bonus for a punter!!) and you get the feeling that some "Lovie guys" on the Bears long for the past day when JA would just hand them an overpriced deal rather than make the tough decisions about holding the line or even moving on. Emery, in addition to overhauling the O, has been working to clean up the cap situation mess left by the prior regime. That's why he went with a bunch of stopgap/"prove it" deals last year.

    Of the "Big 3" we have to make decisions on now (Pep, Melton, Peanut), if I had to choose ONE to keep it would be Tillman. Melton is replaceable in the 1st round of the draft and Pep....well we all know the quandary there.
