Woody's Inflation

Benjamin Franklin once said that only two things in life that are certain are death and taxes. I would like to mention a third: Inflation. Inflation is the perpetual rise in prices that results in depreciation over any length of time of purchasing power. By way of example, you would need about $1.82 in 2003 [...]

Same ‘ol Jets? Don’t Make Me Laugh

By Sperm Edwards People have a lot of revisionist history with regards to this FO’s acquisition of FA’s. Backtrack to one year ago. To start the ’06 off-season, there WAS no salary cap for ‘07.

Jets Salary Cap Scenario

By Sperm Edwards I've seen the Jets cap situation as being anywhere from $20-28M under the $109M cap for 2007. No outsider knows the number exactly, but I believe the figure is closer to $30M than $20M. Either way, that's not all. We're clearly going to make at least some roster changes. So who gets [...]
