The obvious answer is Miami. I really think that Wallace is overated dropping balls for no reason. But they did a good job with Ellerbe. Still I think they finish 3rd in their division this year and out of the playoffs.

That is not specific enough. Define splurge? One or 2 guys that are high dollar FA?

Hasn't had to be a splurge. It can be 1 or 2 players for a team needing to get over the top. Sure they lost the Superbowl but New England really benefited from picking up Randy Moss in 2007.

You forgot Jerry Rice taking the raiders to the supebowl... So there you have it the best players in the NFL history made some impact on their new teams.

The Jets had 1 good year, 1998 then 2nd year of Curtis Martin's contract with the jets. Also they signed a QB that year, non other than Vinny T. who threw for 29 Td's and only 7 picks.

Also did'nt hurt that their their coaching staff was..

Bill parcels-Head Coach
Bill Bellicheat-D. Coordinator
Charlie Weiss O. Coordinator

other assistants include Romeo Crennel,Eric Mangini and Todd Haley.
