    you know what you can learn from them; if you don't put 15-22 mil qb you can build a DISGUSTINGLY BADDASS D, and if you get the qb right in the draft you can get to the SB; same can be said for Balt and SF before. Question is going to be, what do they do once RusWill needs to get paid; b/c if it's anything like Balt they are going to be in trouble.

    The key is having a GM who can keep a low failure rate in the draft. It's just mission-critical to keep the best young talent coming in through the draft pipeline. Building through FA is a financial killer to a team. Using FA's has to be limited and strategic, especially with top-tier FA talent. But the draft is so much more cost effective, if you have the scouting department and GM who can judge talent well. If a team can sustain this year-in and year-out, then it can survive letting a high priced vet walk (even a QB) rather than mortgaging the farm for 1 player. That's my thought anyway. You can't afford many Shea McClellen's when you're pulling that draft trigger.
