Cruds, if your company wasn't achieving its goals, there would be a manager within screaming for the 1/2 lb bags to double the sales and revenue. I am certainly not making any assumption that I can run all aspects of the FO better than what is being done now. I am simply pointing out that I believe the Titans would benefit from not being so reticent to taking a chance on a "ifirst tier" FA (or trade) when there is a glaring need. It has been debated that successful teams don't do it, they do. It has been debated that the Titans do take a chance when they need to, I feel just not often enough- particularly this year. The cap situation and effects have been explored if many large scale acquisitions were to occur- I have clarified that only one or two every few years when the needs arise is all I'm talking about. It has been argued that even one or two would strap our ability to field depth, I've replied that one or two could be done in a budget neutral fashion. I don't get it. I don't undertand why so many folks are provoked by the idea the Titans could handle FA/trades a little better than we do now. I understand and respect the arguments (i took exception with some of the techniques) but I simply don't agree that the front office could not be handling the situation better or that it is impossible for our organization to engage in one or two FA signings every so often without severely jeopardizing the future of the franchise. There is always room for improvement. I don't believe it was just luck that allowed some "successful" organizations to field teams that go deep in the playoffs. I believe it is a combination of FO personnel moves and coaching as well. IMO, all facets of this organization warrant criticism until we field a team that can go deep in the playoffs. I agree with TJ, there really is nothing left to say and we have hit an impasse on agreement on this issue.
