    Default Rebuilding the Team, eh?

    There is a fundamental difference in approach to this process. Build properply and maintenance regularly. Actually, the need to rebuild should not exist when managed and coached properly.

    The prime example is the comaprison between the Chiefs and the Patriots organizations.

    Over the past 8 years, when did the Patriots rebuild? Never, is the correct answer.

    Simply put, they manage and coach their team personnel in a manner that allows a competitent replacement to be readily prepared upon attrition.

    They never totally overhaul a team. Exclaimed key players leave...Okay...They already have someone that can step in and replace them OR they have the cash to sign a FA, like Randy Moss. They do a great job of late round drafting and developing.

    Pioli will implement that mentality into the Cheifs organization which will vastly improve their fundamentals in "business management." Thus, netting long term, continued success.

    A down year should be at worse...8-8.

    Ye shall see....

    The Pats first Super Bowl team was made up of 11 free agents starters. They built the team in the 2000 offseason using cheap free agents. They kept the team on top with good drafts, select FAs, and savvy trades.

    This, by the way, is exactly what I expect Pioli to do. A massive FA binge this offseason, and good drafts and selected FAs to keep us on top.

    We're thankfully going to abandon the asinine strategy of trying to fill our teams needs with a bunch of low draft picks like was the 2007-2008 plan.

    Yep... I agree. When the Pats won their first SB with 11 FA starters, that was the last of any "total overhaul", if you can even say that.

    The teams that start over or have a low score in talent evaluations and/or have poor coaches stay at the bottom rung. Even if you are "average" in all three aspects, you will be better than 2-14!! LMAO!

    if you check our current roster you'll find 53 new players aquired since 2006, only 12 have been around longer, including injured reserve. that's not a rebuilding, it's a razing .

    I agree with this. its one thing to be in a rebuilding mode, but another to throw away everything.
