I posted on the roster on cut down day, and got lambasted by many here. Some even had the audacity to think it a feather in BB's cap that 8 UDFA made this roster. The team is littered with 1st and 2nd year players that do not yet have the confidence of the coaching staff nor TB. Injuries have put the teams back against the wall with playing guys not ready...
I will feel better with this game behind the team, and 12 days to regroup....
But I do not like the roster as it stands now...
I'm with you rkarp. I've been getting lambasted since the first FA period when I wasn't happen with the retreads they were bringing in verses getting solid talent in a buyer friendly market. Any time you have that many UDFAs on the team it shows that you haven't been drafting or picking up FAs all that well. There is no need for that many UDFAs if you had better drafts and FA classes. Considering how many picks they've had the last 4-5 years it's scary that any UDFAs have made the team over actual draft picks
BB doesn't make a big splash in free agency anymore. He signs a few cheap guys and then when they do nothing he takes no heat for it and if the do something everybody goes, wow what a genius. He does the same kind of thing often in the draft.
It's gotten old. Very old. If anybody has Kraft duped, it's BB the GM.
I think this latest WR gaffe and the D line thing is troublesome. I have tried to be very patient in understanding the idealogy. I even told others to be patient last week but Im starting to really think its just like I was told way back. In baseball , owners arent always looking to go all in and win it all. They only need to a win a title every now and then to keep the fans around. You win a title, u can go another 10-15 years before winning it again as long as you stay in the hunt, the Fans will stay interested.
Make a few signings that show you care, but never really go all in, rather keep pocketing money every year and hope your unprepared team can get by. In our case its even worse cuz we have a QB who can mask alot and win a lot of reg. season games. SOo, I think they are just doing enough to keep us around. Kraft probably takes care of Brady under the table to keep him happy and everyone else is expendable. I see no other explanation.
The question is WHEN will they pay again and go all in?? IN Bradys last year?? Like a going away gift,...
