Re: Bite the bullet

Yeah, that's what I don't get. We have already been in a rebuild mode for most of the past two seasons. All of these people calling for blowing the team up and starting over must be blind. In addition, this past off-season there were some major moves in the personnel area of the front office and it looks like it has already reaped benefits with our best draft since 2006.

The draft is the key to turning around this team .Free agency is a useful tool for filling holes . Moving forward we need to be very careful spending on free agents. Stockpiling draft picks and not reaching on projects. Our coaching staff should be under great scrutiny,,scouting and personnel staff as well. It is time to make some big changes and build a team worthy of the best fans loyalty.It's not going to be easy and it's going to hurt but it time to bite the bullet and get it done.
There's nothing wrong with the formula we've used in the past. Address weaknesses with mid tier free agents and draft BPA.

The problems have been when we over-spend on free agents and totally swing and miss in the draft.

We just need to adhere to the formula that works instead of big splash free-agency, over-spending on our own players and drafting crappy players.
