Predicting that Amini Silatolu starts, 20 of our 22 starters will have been drafted by us. Now that's what I call building through the draft!

Compare that to the Redskins with 10/22 starters originally drafted by them.

Yeah we've been building mediocratly like that for years now. Also not that hard to do when you bring in a couple of free agents worth nothing a year.

We'll see how it comes together.
Teams like GB, Pitt have been doing that for years, hopefully we'll have similar results in the future as we actually have a franchise QB now, which helps a TON.

Surely you see that this hasn't actually been a good thing.

I guess comparison to the Redskins proves that inept franchises can suck using various methods. Cool.

How so, we got our franchise QB and were finally on our way to going somewhere. I think Cam, Smitty, J Stew, D Will, Kalil, Gross, Beason, Gamble, Anderson, and CJ are a pretty solid core to build around.

2-12 was under the John Fox era and the same year we prepped for the lockout. The 6-10 record was under a rookie head coach with no offseason to prep his team. I have been going back and watching all the games from last year. So far I have made it to the Chicago game. We Could/Should have easily beat AZ if it weren't for a couple blown coverages that led to wide open TD's and the embarrassing easy return Patrick Peterson made. We hung tight with G.B but did deserve to lose to that one. Chicago game was another one that minus a few unfortunate penalties and special teams meltdown would have been a win. The future is Bright with this squad that has been mostly drafted.

Good point. I just thought your little buzz kill was over kill and said what came to mind.
