|Join *Jaguars Inside Report *Senior Editor Vic Ketchman as he tackles the fans' tough questions.|
Suzanne Webster from Jacksonville:
|Vic: Tom Coughlin is a man of many words. You can rest assured Coughlin leaves no inspirational stone unturned. However, Coughlin will tell you that, ultimately, motivation is something that must come from within each player. A coach I covered and admired for several years, Chuck Noll, used to say pep talks last until the first time a player gets knocked on his butt. Then, a player is on his own.|
Mack Doss from Cocoa, FL:
|Vic: Cap room is difficult to define. It varies from team to team. It comes down to what percentage of your cap is bonus and what percentage is salary. Bonus can be spread out over the length of the contract; salary must be declared in full on that season's cap. For example, if you're due to be paid $2 million in salary this year and you have four years remaining on your contract, I can give you the $2 million now as bonus money and you'd only be a $500,000 hit this season. That kind of re-structuring would be a $1.5 million cap savings over the previous contract. Of course, the Jaguars have re-structured contracts to the point that they don't have that kind of maneuverability any longer. Yes, teams are going to have to make moves in June and it's unfortunate the Jaguars don't have the cap room to be a serious June participant, but this team must dedicate itself to re-storing the health of its future salary caps.|
Brian Halvorson from Bessemer, MI:
|Vic: The days of Mark Brunell the scrambler, as he was in 1996, are over. He still has pocket mobility and can buy time with his feet so he might create on the run. That's good enough.|
Jim Dickson from Sacramento, CA:
|Vic: The Jaguars are now a Reebok team, which means their uniforms and all other team-issue equipment will bear the Reebok trademark. Those players who have personal shoe contracts with other companies may wear those companies' shoes and gloves.|
Matt Kochan from Ponte Vedra Beach, FL:
|Vic: Actually, the Ravens have taken a lesson from the Jaguars' strategy. The Ravens are converting salary into signing bonus and moving money onto future caps, just as the Jaguars did in previous years. Major cap problems are right around the corner for the Ravens. They are currently attempting to take full advantage of their window of opportunity, at the cost of their future.|
