I have no problem with the 'core player' approach, provided you have someone in charge who's better at determining which players to build around than Marty Hurney was.

Although I wouldn't just give away our other guys- like CJ, Dwan, Norman, TD, Beason, Hardy, Alexander, LaFell, Olsen

I surprised some of you mention guys like LaFell. He is a marginal #2 receiver. Why he would be considered a definite keeper is puzzling to me.

I think we have as many as some playoff teams. I mean how many do the Colts have? Two. How about Cincinnati? I mean in the NFL "untouchable" needs to be at QB, one on defense, and your coach. Everything else can be riddled with players who will shuffle in and out. When the Giants won their first Super Bowl with Eli they had like 2 untouchables and a good coach. We have mostly what we need to make a run as early as next year but have to get the coach right
not busting your chops or anything but they had a few more than 2.
also....go back and read what the fans were saying about their HC before he won a SB

2.Luke (might be the best LB in the NFL in a few years)
3.Hardy (has a lot of potential)
4.Jstew (Once we trade Dwill he will flourish as the #1 back)
5.Norman(diamond in the rough)
*I don't get the Kalil love,dude put a bullseye on our back (SB)and he didn't back it up on the field.I would trade him for a 2nd pick if his value is still high,some people say he is the best center in the game for whatever that's worth.

I do have a question. If we kept TD, do you think he would be content in playing a back up role? I don't want to see another situation where we are trying to play all four of our linebackers, and in the end they are off rhythm because they keep getting taken off the field. That's why Kuechly had the impact he's had since the time Beason was placed on IR. Sure, playing his natural position helped, but his productivity is mostly credited for now playing more than 20% of defensive snaps. That whole situation and set up by Rivera was just dumb-dumb. I would rather release TD before going through that again.
Davis is very much a team player.

and i said as much weeks ago
i added Greg and Ryan to the list though and I think Deems should as well.
Deems is one of the few that does not mind telling it like it is.
