that's exactly what he was saying. he wants to re load, not rebuild. he even mentioned that JC's best days are ahead of him which leads me to believe that he and the new coach are going to tinker with the roster and try and re load. shanahan isn't coming here for a rebuilding project.

I think guys are looking into things more than they need too. What I got out of his press conference is that he believes this team has talent. I know for damn sure he doesn't believe that this team doesn't have any glaring holes. A blind man can see that it does. He's going to have to start rebuilding this team if he wants to win.

Re: Bruce Allen presser

As I brought up in another post about the "we are almost there" marketing thing we fall for each year, BA is just feeding right into that whole idea. I"m not saying he couldn't say this team sucks, because obviously that's not GM speak, but I for one am not going to think that this pitiful team is a "reload" team.

I remember a sports analyst saying that Gibbs had 4 years to go to the superbowl, because afterward, all the contracts and players would be old and have cap troubles. Maybe they were right.

That is why you don't build a team through free agency. They are more expensive and just unpredicable as rookies. Plus it seems like whe you build your team through free agency they can get old overnight. A few years ago our offensive line was the strongest unit on our team. Now they are the weakest unit on our team. That is why the draft is so important. You can build quailty depth at a cheap price.

Re: Bruce Allen presser

This guy is just a politician. He knows how to work people. I love how he perks up his eyebrows when making a point.

I dont think we will ever get much substance outta him in pressers. THat doesnt mean he will do bad job. Im just saying, I can understand how his brother is George.
