People keep talking about players we need at various spots but it is our organization's brain trust that has put us in a position to lose. We universally acknowledge that our playcalling has been abysmal on both sides of the ball for a long time. We know that our training camps are soft and that we are a little too happy to get mediocre players to come here. We haven't been in a position to actually have competition for starting jobs in a decade. We have had to overhaul rosters in the name of scheme change too often wasting valuable time and opportunity. Yes, we have whiffed in the draft as well.
If we don't get our brain trust right it won't matter who we draft or pick up. I don't disagree about depth at key spots but to lay all of this off on lack of talent is just wrong. Outside of Tom Brady I think we match up very well vs the Pats. It's the organizational gap that has been the issue. I think we're better off than we were under the DJ/Levy era but I don't expect a +.500 season. It will take bold change at QB to get us to keep going to the games while we emerge from the mediocrity.
I love the smell of charcoal in the morning.
We have been rebuilding since Kelly retired and we will continue rebuilding until w find a franchise QB.
Before you die Lonestar, there is something you should know... I am your father's brother's nephew's cousin's former roomate.
I agree with alot of things:
Many holes on defense: True, but easily fixed. Linebackers are cheap (FA, mid round picks ect.)
Rebuilding: True, So are like 20 NFL teams.
Nix to blame: Yes, he made bad draft picks, but much better than his predecessors.
Fun to watch (most important): Not yet, we need a QB, and a little balls on the sidelines I think. But to say the team is rebuilding, and needs 50 new players and GM, doesnt reflect the state of the franchise--you would be speaking just from the heart. If the last few chips fall into place, dont be caught with your foot in your mouth.
