I for one feel better about a coaching staff that puts the best preforming player of the week on the field come game day than the one getting the most compensation.

If players are not making the most of the plays that they are given on the field it is on them.
You didn't read what I posted...

The coach made a statement about the talent level being great, then, the next day they signed a FA...

...what I take from that is the Coach was BSing and he's not satisfied with the talent we have a CB...

...the point I alluded to was if we do, indeed, have good talent - let them play, get the repetitions, so they can develop...

...obviously, if they suck, then I could see why we had to sign CBs...

...but don't brag about the talent level, then sign another CB - I just don't believe in signing more vets if the talent, albeit young, inexperienced, is already on the roster...

...now, in the case of Mark Ingram, you believed in him enough to make the draft pick(s) investment - and he's the type of back that needs rhythm, 15+ touches a game...

if he's not getting it done, move him and move on...

Talent level and depth are a little different.
Look at our punting situation, excellent talent, no depth.
