Mckenzies or anyone elses success in the draft is a myth.
look at his track record..its more a testament at securing numerous picks then it is at identifying a winner.
even when you do your homwwork beyond maybe the top 10 picks its completely random if the apple of your eye is there for you to select.
heres a good read:
If we are pinning our hopes on the idea of a draft "guru".......
We really look like team that is rebuilding .. Lots of young guys.. Not a lot of consistency but flashes of what we can become .. I hope we can be close to .500 and play improving football. This weekend against the Saints is going to be interesting as neither team can play D... Will Carson be able to keep up with Drew Brees? My sense is no but I'm hopeful
Any other D backs out there?
[B]New York Yankees 27 World Championships.....need I say more?
Oakland Raiders 3 Super Bowl Victories/rest of the AFC West 3 keep trying to catch up!
Reggie had hafl a draft & was able to sign Philip Wheeler and who else? Mike Brisiel. For this ZBS. Which has not panned out.
This off-season Reggie will actually have cap room to sign a vet or two.
Reggie will actually have a shot this coming draft to get impact players.
^ both things he wasn't able to do this year.
The success of a roster is determined by having solid starters and a few play-makers. Furthermore, it's about getting enough players who can succeed within the confines of the coaching scheme.
Players are either a 'fit' or they're not - it's really just that simple.
The best way to make sure you get 53 guys - 45 active - who fit the bill is to have a wealth of draft picks to take a lot of shots at getting the right players. In other words, the only way to succeed is to get a lot of players and keep the ones who work out.
That's a great point.
ill take it a little further.
you cant force your good fortune.
It smiles on you when it wants to.you can ceratinly piss it away easily, but i dont thinkit makes sense to try and force the issue(trading down when the available player is a need spot..I think its obvious it will be in 2013)
Until weve put ourselves in position to have 10 picks in a draft with an extra 2nd and 3rd. you have top exploit the FA market on shortish contracts.
Endorsements don`t put W`s in the Win column, ask Clint Eastwood he`ll tell you.
I don`t believe RM is smart enough, I`ll be saying this 3 years down the road, the defense lawyers will be launching the kitchen sink.
If you want to believe RM is smart enough, that`s fine.
Critical Hires have been made, the stadium sales will show this down the road.
For those of you who are unaware, the NFL is about business. A good amount of owners are more about money first, Championships 2nd.
