well after a few weeks and most of the top 2 tiers of FA's gone, we really are the exact same team as last year minus our TE's. The good news we havent gotten any worse, the bad news we havent gotten any better. Not sure what makes the Coaching staff and personal folks think we can be any more competitive with essentially the same team. I would also have to say we got a bit worse since welker is likely going to be out for part of the season. The draft is all well and good but Im just not a huge fan of Rookies and the impact they make first season. Sure there are exceptions but as of now Im not sure what our off season plan really is or was. Maybe it was BB wanting to keep the same folks in the same system for another year rather than introducing overpriced FAs that dont fit or dont get the scheme quick enough. I dont like over paying for risk either but I think they should have pulled the trigger for a decent WR given our current situation. Of course trades are always a possibility so that could be a wildcard here. If we finished last year as a B or Bplus team Im not sure what we are now.
