Ron Stone is a great example of how the salary cap started to erode our talent. That always irks me when I think of guys like that walking away and having success with other teams.
This is a team who is battling several major injuries to
key players including Pro Bowl talents like Lee, Austin, Jenkins, Murray,
Carter and Ratliff. Other key starters missing include Costa, Smith, Church and
Coleman. That is 11 key players - that's half the starting lineup. Yet we still went 8-8.
