But I think CHFF.com has a point, if you're in the business of winning, you really don't need that bright shiny new hood ornament to make the car run.
I think this and what Scout said pretty much sum up how I feel too. I've always heard Michael Lombardi quote Bill Walsh, in that you don't go get a franchise/potential first round wr unless most of your team is built. I agree. Ie. If you're weak at QB, Oline, esp at the weak side T, a sweet WR doesn't do you much good at all. The ex they keep bringing up is the Browns, who could be a Green target b/c they need a dynamic O weapon so badly, but they wouldn't be a team in Walsh's position to do this. Same for Cincy with no Palmer in the holdout standoff.
What this makes me think is we are a team in Walsh's position in some respects, minus the neon glaring hole at DE. Huge minus tgh. 27th obviously removes Green/JJones, so we'll see what TD cooks up, as a Randolph at TE may be lurking in the 2nd rd too. I pretty much wanna go DE in the first if TD thinks whoevers there is worthwhile, and then go O in the 2/3rd for WR/TE. And later I still want another RB, Locke/Hunter/Rodgers as scat or an DEvans for a hammer, his sparc time was pretty good and depending on where he goes is great platoon value at some pt.
