Failing Caponomics

The Redskins front office needs an intervention (or maybe they need to start reading Football Outsiders). They've so bungled their salary cap that $22 million of it -- or more than 25 percent -- is "spent on players who already have departed the Redskins, likely won't be with the team next season or, as in Mark Brunell's case, will be with the club but not playing."

My favorite quote from the article: "One source with intimate knowledge of NFL players' contracts and team salary structures said no club has spent so much and gained so little as the Redskins."

Uh, do you think?
