Yes our new approach is better. Yes our old old approach wasn't very good. The intervening approach was solid yet unproductive. No one ever talks about the year Gibbs came back and signed guys who actually worked out. They conveniently forget the signings of Griffin and Washington. I buy that going strictly the FA doesn't work a lot. I don't buy that it has been as bad as it gets portrayed like 31 other teams had the right idea and Danny-boy didn't. Ugg.

At this point I'd say our patience and restraint is smart, but I said from day 1 of Shanahan/Allen that I'm taking a wait and see approach.
Not getting Dansby was very disappointing, but it doesn't sound like he was ever really interested in playing anywhere other than Miami, so I don't think we really dropped the ball there. Not signing Clifton when we had the chance was our biggest potential mistake in this offseason though. However, all will be forgiven in my book if we draft a LT with a first.

I honestly feel fine with not signing Clifton. I really want to stay way from having a patch work done at the LT position. I really want the team to pick up Okung so he can anchor our line for the next 10+ years.

I do want them to pick up a 3-4 LB though, which is why Dansby was my number 1 choice. However, I could live with Foote.

I'd be shocked if Foote didnt sign with Arizona, but i'm still holding out hope. I agree, Clifton wouldnt have been a long-term solution, but it would have opened up our options in the draft. If Okung's gone, i fear we'll end up reaching for someone.

However, if Okung's there, it'll be very hard for the FO to justify drafting anyone else, given that we don't have a capeable starter on the team right now.

Re: Wisdom in Washington? 'Skins finally get smart

Another big difference this year is the FO's ability to misdirect from what our intentions are. If the media, and their sources had been believed(I did on some) we would have had Dansby, Peppers, and weren't giving the new DT a contract this time around. It certainly seems like BA learned from his Dad about keeping his true intentions close to his vest.

Yeah we really don't have a starting tackle at all. R or L.
