Let's get it straight. I don't like losing. But how many years in a row have we heard the same statements you are making about us being close personnel-wise and still we are not a real contender? And you and I can disagree where we are with the talent on this team. We are out of a safety. Our O-line has needed re-building for two years now. We don't have a dominant D-line. Our franchise QB hasn't shown us much yet, especially hasn't disproved the criticisms he received pre-draft. He's in year two. We chose a 5' 10" WR who is decent but not franchise and we had much GREATER needs for re-building. Our RB is a finesse back, we have no real bruiser. Our TE situation is average with Stevens, project with Taylor Thompson and Cook is out. Our WR's are reasonable but Britt is injured and a headache to boot and next year is his last contract year. Doubt we re-sign him. Just what core do you see have personnel wise right now? And as you list it, make an honest assessment of how that core stacks up competitively to other franchises who will be competing with and those franchises who started their re-build at the same time or after ours. Stop making excuses for this TOTALLY inept FO. This re-build was epic fail. The sooner we admit it, the faster we are on a recovery to get back into division contention. If the Titans don't get their head of our their azz, the Jags will also be on a stronger path. Believe me, they KNOW they effed up their re-build 2 years ago. They did just what the Colts did to us last year.
