Kind of wordy, but a good read.
Some decent points, but I don't agree with most of it. He talks to how teams like the Steelers and Cowboys are perennial contenders, and makes the assumption that they go out and sign huge free agents. What big names have those teams signed this year again? The fact of the matter is that there are only so many good players to go around in free agency. Look at who the most prized FA was last year--Albert Haynesworth. The Redskins go out and give him a $100 million dollar contract, and look at them! We beat them last year and they are picking before us in the draft.
The fact of the matter is that the Steelers and Cowboys HAVE built their teams through the draft. Look at their teams right now! What about how bad the Cowboys got burned when they traded for Roy Williams? A 1st, 3rd, and 6th for a guy that has 1026 receiving yards.......in 30 GAMES! This isn't Major League Baseball where one pitcher or batter can turn your team from pretender to contender.
lol i hate the cowboys almost as much as i hate the donkeys. LOVE the detroit lions, and barry sanders though. So i was sad to see Roy Williams who was awesome in DET leave for declining DAL...him + calvin johnson would have been nasty together but its hard not to give up williams when you get that kind of compensation in return. Especially when there are so many holes to fill on the team, so they had one receiver to spare.
Well the main thing I have against the reply is he did not take in to effect all the changes that have happened to the Chiefs. Even owners changed just a couple of years ago most coaches have changed even the front offices are having large turnovers. If you keep the same CEO, CFO and HR people you are going to have the same results/trends but when they all turn over there just might be changes.
Besides I can remember when the Cowboys were down before they got a couple of good drafts (Aikman, Irving and Smith) Aikmans 1st year they were 1-15.
i dont think he was making the point that the cowboys and steelers go out and get all the free agent signings they can...i think he was trying to say that they have found what works for them and makes them consistently winning teams...and since what we have been doing isnt working, maybe its time to try something different
i was trying to elaborate on his words...not mine...dont get ants in your pants guys
