free agency should be the primary means of addressing needs, not the draft.

Don't draft for need, draft the BPA no matter what. The correct way of conducting a draft, take the BPA even if it's a team strength.

"With the Giants, people thought we were crazy for drafting defensive ends. We drafted (Mathias) Kiwanuka and we drafted JPP (Jason Pierre-Paul), and everyone's saying, ‘My God, when's it going to stop?' But if that's the best player available, you take him. Nothing like competition."

this is actually a best standard practice in the nfl. if you can fill your needs with good, proven guys, the draft is simply a bpa picnic

And that's how it should be. Anyone think the comments about making the cap good for the future to come means ALOT of players with bad contacts being dumped?

I'll wait and see who he has in mind for his FA list before I praise him.

I dig his style. He's a true grinder. Looking forward to the year.

He says all the right things. If he follows up with actions,it will be great.

Total opposite of Hurney who would pass on free agents who would signifcantly help the team because they had the nerve to ask for a price that is reasonable.

    • lol so they made Jinder the universal champion? big deal, the b show champion has never been even as prestigious as the intercontinental championship was in the early 90s. the real world champion is being held by a part timer, just like it kind of was in the early 90s whenever hogan was carrying it.
    • What are you waiting for? The final.solution?
    • This reminded me of his speech in Charleston (Boeing?). He talked of punishments for companies that tried to move jobs to other countries. Why hamstring countries so that they can't operate with efficiency and effectiveness. Seems awfully collectivist and anti-capitalist for someone who is touted as a pro-business capitalist. So here, with Carrier, he was applauded for some sort of effort to keep some amount of jobs in America. Yay. Oh wait, that wasn't actually sustainable? Federal Gov't meddling into corporate staffing decisions didn't work out as planned? Color me shocked. I don't think this guy has a clue what he is doing. He has no real ideology and doesn't understand , or care,  how things work or what the consequences to any action or comment will be.  I guess he is just throwing poo against the wall to see what sticks and what will appease his mouth-breathing, isolationist, supporters.
