The last couple of years I have been a staunch critic of BB simply because of the numbers. Before last years draft he was above average with picks but not at the top. What last year did for me was show the VALUE of his trading and accumulating....but I will again throw out the question, is it DRAFTING or COACHING?? The chess player he is I think most will agree he could take another team and beat this team. And I understand the "chicken or the egg" arguement, is it the actual picks or possibly the draft value and coaching that makes them better players?? I think we could all take a look at draft boards from the last 5 years and say if player X was drafted by the Pats his career would have been much different, right?? While we can praise the additions of Woodhead and alot of no name free agents does that not again praise the "value" and "coaching" aspects over draft prowess? I understand there are alot of moving parts moving in concert and BB has forgotten more than any of us will know, but really how important is it who and where we draft if we cant set the player up to suceed in the system as well? For every Vollmer there is a Brace, for every Mccourty a Chad Jackson. Is last year's success a break from the average (Maroney/Meriweather) or are we due a market correction that will make us all sick? Truth is 1 year doesnt tell us much at all, and before we either run to the 100th floor or jump off lets collectively just hope that we get to see this coming group in action this year under BB's command. THAT is what I pay to see.
