Agreed...our biggest issue is our poor drafting. We hit one or two drafts and have one or two drafts where we get zero players from. We will not contend for another Super Bowl until we can put 4 or 5 good drafts together. You need youth to win in this league, and in order to have a team full of players in their prime, you need consecutive drafts that get quality starters. Jerry has a terrible draft track record and though our last few have been ok, we need to get more starters from the draft. We need to figure out how to draft OL and DL and safety. We need to stop playing games by moving up and down the board and letting quality players slip past us in order to acquire more 6th and 7th round picks. Build and invest in your draft board, then follow the board. Trust the scouts that spend years helping you build it. Stop making rash decisions because you have a hunch.
