It's always been about the draft and smart FA pickups, particularly undrafted free agents. There's not enough money to buy a championship and there never has been. When we won in the 90s it was because we won in the draft.
FWIW when Parcells left that's alot what our roster looked like. It was littered with homegrown players. It still is, I guess. They're just not very good.
victory is ours
