The parity that has been added to the NFL by way of the salary cap and rookie contracts being basically predetermined allow for teams like the Panthers to go from a losing record to almost perfect record in 1 year. The difference between elite players and mediocre players is half seconds and half inches, and you have 31 other teams competing for those same elite players often times with outside influencers at play (income tax, family location, etc) as well as the team you rep. I could keep going but I hope you get my point... If your expectation is to that a team should be able to hit a home run every off season, you're delusional, or a Patriots fan. I think of it the same way as people who go gambling and expect to win even though they know the house has odds on every single bet they make. You look at it as only one playoff win. I look at it as a lot of winning record seasons and only 3 years removed from the NFCCG and a few yards from a SB trip... I bet there are a lot of franchises out there that would take our past 10 years over their past ten years any day of the week... (Brown, Raiders, Rams, etc). Full of substance and well said...... I do agree with most of it. My point is TD has failed repeatedly to acquire a pass rusher via draft, FA, off the dam Marta, trade, undrafted fa, stolen from Walmart, borrowed, etc...... and his track record speaks for itself , ZERO depth, look at last year OL going into preseason, OL period since he got here and inherited the misfits in '08 that turned out to be pretty good, one star quality defensive player D Trufant, LB have sucked biggest part of the time he's been here. A team MUST over pay or get LUCKY to acquire a great FA and he sucks at both. The record speaks for itself.....I'm just stating facts. And I'm a fan since '75 and STH since mid 80s. I've been there thru the Rankin Smith days and remember Jed Clampett and I'm very thankful for the gracious AB. But with that said AB needs to hire a GM that knows how to utilize his generosity.
