How to evaluate your team's decisions

How to evaluate your team's decisions

By Pat Kirwan
NFL.com Senior Analyst


(March 3, 2004) -- It's big-decision season in pro football.

As we ready ourselves for free agency, most of the decisions a club will make now for the 2004 season and beyond will have more to do with winning and losing than at any other time of the year. In the "old days" before the salary cap, the last cuts in August were the most important time of the year in the business. Not anymore.

Analysis, opinions, features and more!
After a number of years of managing a salary cap and making personnel decisions, followed by a few more years of covering the league for the media and observing all the teams in the NFL, I think I've seen it all.

I asked a number of NFL people to reflect on how things should be, and what would they do in a "perfect'" world. I asked all of them, "If you had to do it over again, what would you do differently?" I combined those opinions with my own experiences.

It's time to set up suggested guidelines for all clubs to follow, if they can. It's unrealistic to think any team can stand by all of these suggestions. In fact, no team can adhere to all of the 17 suggestions below, but the more of the sweet 17 your favorite team can follow, the better off they will be, and the closer they will come to being competitive year in and year out.

No one wants to see his or her team fall apart in the offseason because the salary cap is strangling it. Here are the points to live by, and why.



this is very interesting, everyone should check it out:
