Sure we don't have many "holes" but we can certainly get better at a good number of positions. Paying good defensive talent on your team is not going to close your window if you have players that are ready to step in to the place that may have been left by someone getting paid elsewhere. NE goes and gets what they need at the right price. I'm not opposed to getting Bennett but not for a 3rd rounder. Thats why their SB window has been open since 2001. The Eagles paid their young defensive talent and their SB window opened up as soon as they got a franchise QB so hmm what does that say to you? That’s my point I’ve been telling y’all since the Julio trade. We didn’t draft well under smith. And again, we’ll draft a DT early IF we don’t get a DT in FA. So it’s a temporary hole. I saw the eagles coming 3 years ago just like I saw the Seahawks coming. What’s your point? You’re literally saying what I’ve bwen saying forever. Build thru the draft and Round out the edges with FA. We’ve had a franchise qb since 2008. I saw the eagles when they beat us last year lol. This ain’t rocket science man. Bennett for a 3rd is not a bad price for the type of team we have. Again, a team with no real holes. A DT will get drafted and we STILL may get one in FA. A 3rd just doesn’t hurt this team. You get better by drafting well. We draft well. Why? Because Quinn gets scheme specific talent. Just like Walsh. Just like Tuna. Just like Belichik. Just like Lombardi. How’s many picks do we have this year? All seven?? Losing a third doesn’t hurt one bit. 1 DT 2 OG 3 Bennett 4 DT/LB 5 WR/TE 6 CB 7 FB And that’s without FA and after draft FA’s which will make the draft picture even more clear. And who’s to say Rubin won’t come back? Bennett also plays inside next to Grady when/if needed. I def understand your point but it only applies to a team that’s not as well built as us we want to win next year and that’s the mindset. I’m not saying we have to get Bennett but for a third id do it Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
