    Jimmy was the general, he had captins such as Norv turner, Dave Wannstedt, he picked the right people around him and set them to task, and he was the task master.:bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow:

    Jimmy stockpiled picks continually. He also set it up so that we could take a player that still had talent to play, but we wanted to move on and we could trade him for picks instead of letting him go in FA. Players like Jenkins, Felix and Spencer would have been traded before they could hit FA and we would have gotten a lot of picks for them.

    It provided the team with young players to develop, a 'fail safe' in dealing with draft picks that often bust, and it provided with another way to motivate the veterans as they knew that they were replaceable if they didn't meet expectations.

    Had we been able to use this personnel philosophy, we could have gotten a Morris Claiborne and somebody like Kevin Zeitler while having a 2nd round pick available. And maybe we don't ever trade somebody like Felix because he's too motivated to not dare show up to camp out of shape.
