Read a quote by a front office personnel member in the NFL that talked about the turnarounds of Houston and San Fran.....all of their internal metrics say they need at least 30 or so highly-graded players to make the playoffs. "You look at any playoff team, and sure, there are going to be exceptions, but you look at any playoff team and that's what you're going to find. Now, in any given year, between free agency and the draft, the best you can typically hope for is to add seven of that type of player that can help your team. More often, it's more like five. So you take seven players times five years, and that's where you get those numbers."

Who is in our 30?

I'm not understanding. So you need to have seven top rated players for five years to be a contender? I don't understand the math they are using to get thirty highly graded players.

These are guys that are all way above average when healthy. No team has anything even close to 30 if the quality standard is that high.

Maybe over that time span several guys get hurt/miss time/sign elsewhere.....

Find around 7 a year for 5 years and you're almost guaranteed your thirty great roster players

we have 0

This isn't true.

Majority of NFL GM's would kill to have our QB.

I'd also list Smitty, Stewart, Olsen, Kalil (if he comes back healthy), Gross, LaFell (if we find another WR to be the 2), Charles Johnson, Beason (by years end he'll deserve to be in this group), Gamble, Kuechly, Nortman, Davis

The problem is many of these guys are aging... they don't have five more years.
