i understand but our luck with Free Agents and trades is basically the same as that of the Washington Wizards with new players they acquire through FA or trade.

We're still painfully aware of Haynesworth and their are similar examples all round the league.
What's a G M to do ??
Best to just build through the draft and sign reasonable FAs
Players get injured sometimes...
I think we need to continue the path of developing our own more through the draft. There is always going to be the signing of FAs, that's inevitable but it doesn't always have to be big contracts to them. We need to develop our drafts players and have the FAs we sign just be support/role players. This is what the best teams in the league do year after year. Nyg, gb, sf, Pitt, Balt, ne
It's just basically bad luck and I understand that but ours seems to be the worse.
Not to toot my own horn but... We'd be much better financially if we had done my plan for wrs and DBs and wrs be better on the field also
