I still contend that when you have no players to sign to 2nd contracts, your spending will be minimal. Dan Snyder has shown all of us that trying to buy a playoff team doesn't work.

 I thought Lovie said he wanted quickness & speed, even at the QB position?

A valid point that goes in one ear an out the other...


Until preseason, you stay classy Red Board.

LOL - wasn't there free agency during the time of Gruden/Allen and Morris/Dominick - I forget.... And Dan Snyder has shown immediate results when your team starts at suck is damned hard to find.  Belichick has shown use of picks to trade for pros, and FA are very useful tools in filling a roster.  New Orleans has shown that FA for QB is possible.  Arizona has shown that hoping a guy steps up wastes a year.  What else can we contend...

FAs were acquired to supplement the core.... not create one.

Lets just say it'd be impossible to win the division with a 9-7 record these days.

Ummm -not the offense.  D was mostly home grown, O was mostly FAs.  And it was the offense that was missing as you know.  And it was the defense where almost 2/3s of the money was committed iirc.

Hasn't been possible to win the south with 9-7, that number gets you a wild card chance... not assured.

This and most logical fans haven't ask to buy a core .... that's just a convenient reply to the fact that the Glazers/Bucs neglected to try and field the best team possible for a few years ... quite a few

In 07, we won the division with a 9-7 record.
