Most people on this board vastly overrate our talent and then become frustrated when the team's performance isn't commensurate with the talent they think we have.
What I don't get is the board thinks Jerry is a horrible GM who has put together a team with tremendous talent. It doesn't make sense because both parts of that statement can't be true.
[View Full Quote]I do think this team has talent but it is donut like. We have some young guys who have talent and upside and some old guys who are fading but not many players in their peak years anymore. Jerry has got to learn who is worth giving mega-bucks, who is worth extending early in their careers and who he should let walk at the end of a contract. He'll be doing well if he lets Spencer walk for anything over $7.5M/yr, cuts Free and trades Ratliff.
I agree to an extent. A lot of these guys got in by reputation. Dez didn't have a better year than Julio? And if Ratliff and Lee wouldn't have gotten hurt they would've received some votes. Cowboys are not as far away as you are stating.
We have just as many as the Texans do but are they lacking talent? And btw, how Jonathan Joseph got NO VOTES is beyond silly.
