I don't think that's fair. If our defense is top10, or if we win some playoff games, make a superbowl, or actually win won... then straight up, I will be wrong in my opinions about our defense. And it will be fair for me to admit I was wrong about needing upgrades. But if you think I'm not going to celebrate victories, you are crazier than I thought. And my original point is this... if you are 100% defending our strategy and you are against signing free agents that are "expensive" then you can't really complain if our defense isn't good next year, because you wouldn't recommend doing anything different. This is the core disagreement as I understand it. Some posters/fans, TitanJeff, Psychop1, Gunny, are saying it NEVER makes sense to sign a tier 1 (first,second day expensive signing). Other posters/fans, Riverman and I, are saying don't automatically exclude a high dollar top tier free agent SOLELY because of contract expense. At least, that's my understanding from this 35 page thread.
