Great post TJ. I agree completely with this statement also. Particularly that our cap situation would not have been threatened in the least to have kept Odom. Another poster (sorry I couldn't find it) pointed out that MR should take heat for not locking AH down before the Raiders blew up the franchise cost and cap hit. Filling the team's gaps with cheap vets works if you can keep your core. Right now, our core is average- maybe a little above. The drafting has let us down and although Reese is gone, MR didn't impress me much with his first year. He is mid-semester in my grade book and posting a solid C.
