How did it get this bad?

We have a franchise QB, an elite MLB and several great players at key positions (Kraken, CJ, Beason, Smith, Kalil). Add some young players who I see will keep progressing into next season (LaFell, Norman), and we aren't in that bad shape as some other franchises.

We aren't top either though.

I'm pretty sure Gettleman has a plan in FA. Every day, the paychecks for some positions we have big holes (CB,S) goes down. With our cap situation, we just have to wait a bit longer, and get the best available FA for the lowest check possible.

If we are able to bring in capable players (not superstars at a ridiculous paycheck) at the positions of need, add 2/3 key draft players, I'm pretty sure we will be quite solid next year.

I agree we are playoff caliber. Unfortunately so are ATL and NO next year. Not sure about TB.

But if we are losing close games due to bonehead coaching and dumb plays again next year look for a new coaching staff.

Why is this necessary? Is there a reason being a D*ck is necessary?

Being a dick is not necessary and neither is starting a thread identical to over half the threads started in the last 36 hours.

I completely agree. However, I think the latter could be due to the fact that the thread starter may have not read previous threads before posting. Being a dick is a deliberate choice. I just think, "Move on if the topic is not to your liking."

The thread is redundant no doubt...but if it bothers folks that much then simply don't read it. Half the post in threads that some might call thread worthy are crap gifs, lame one liners...etc etc. It takes more effort to post a complaint about a thread than it does to simply ignore it.

It's a really good question, and a pretty bad original post.

IMO, and that doesn't mean much, it has to do with overvaluing that RB and LB positions. Not drafting well, and giving up picks to move up to try to save yours (Hurney) and Fox's jobs.

I am drawn to the 2008 draft when we traded up for Otah after selecting a second 1st round running back. The next year we traded up for Brown and the next year we traded a pick to get Edwards. That was just terrible pick management even without getting into the viability of the picks.

Not only that, but giving Jake that guaranteed contract. I think we were paying him 15mil the year he played for the Browns.

Just bad move after bad move for a few years there.
