ket222 Posted October 13, 2014 Share Posted October 13, 2014 I may be reaching here, but it's seemed to me over the last few years that very often 1) we wanted a player or position in the draft but just missed him (last year, we wanted a DE but the good DEs were taken just before our second pick, so we chose Hageman); 2) we wanted a good FA but there weren't any that year for our position of need (I forgot the name of the awful DE from Minnesota we picked up, but I remember there just wasn't any other great DEs available)?I've just had this feeling several times over the years, and I wonder if we've just not had good opportunities for getting the players we need? I mean, how many great DEs are available every year? Maybe the NFL is now like the NBA and there just isn't a lot of available talent each year to 32 teams? I guess I'm now feeling there just isn't ANY HOPE because it's just too hard to fill all our positions of need over the next couple of years (esp. since the quality of our best players like Roddy seem to be going downhill--they have to be replaced too).Is it just a situation of the 'rich get richer'--a very few elite teams have the personnel to be good every year?
