everette brown trade was terrible. huge bust and we traded a first rounder for him in 2009. that move, by the way, was a double down by hurney as he had traded a first the previous year for otah, another pick that finally and ultimately proved to be a bust this offseason.
only citing armanti and rivera is actually letting the guy off quite easy. to his credit, i don't fault him for the peppers thing either as that was a shitstorm largely induced by julius and his agent. i also don't hold the delhomme extension against him necessarily as that was a salary cap move.
ending the season with a winning streak would be great to help flush out the complacency and general malaise that's plagued this team for going on three seasons now.
this franchise is going to have to learn how to win again and it'd be better if we were serious about starting on it now instead of waiting for next season. would you rather lose out or go something like 3 or 4 out of our final 5 games and maybe win one or two with a walk off scoring drive? i'd say the latter would do a lot for the future.
