I don't know about you but one thing you need to realize is the coaches know best. They see these players everyday, last year they said we only rushed three players because the secondary was so banged up. Our LB's were all hurt. Are biggest playmaker missed on offsense missed 10 games. Our QB stunk.
So if you talk about improvement and attacking areas of weakness, I don't see a team who did a better job. Patriots signed 5 WR's, didn't we try that last year? Cleveland got two first rounders, so what. San Fran paid out the a*s for a couple of players? I've seen that before.
Let's look at this; Colts win the SB, did they sign anybody that offseason? Patriots have never signed anyone big in the offseason before so who knows.
In 2004 the Skins didn't sign anyone big, they went to the playoffs the following year, then they sign everyone, they go 5-11. See a trend.
So let's not play the headline game because we know it doesn't work. If you want to look at headlines, we didn't have the best offseason, but i think we improved our team the most overall this offseason.
You make very good points, but every team can't draft superstars and sometimes need free agents. But in general I agree with your comments.
