What free agents should we have signed that weren't because Pioli created an environment they didn't want to be part of?
Same question goes for coaches.
Same goes for our own free agents over the last couple years.
We haven't lost anyone except for Shaun Smith to FA and we replaced him with Allen Bailey and Amon Gordon....both look to be just as good or better and Bailey was very impressive as just a n00b.
Last year, given the circumstances, we had a pretty good FA period.
Could we have gotten more? Sure.
Were there more than a handful of teams that improved their teams more than us in last years free agency? I dont really think so.
I cant remember a player we passed on going on to having a good year.
One things for sure, Pioli needs to have one hell of a solid draft to prove to some of us that the strength of this team the last two years (having solid drafts from top to bottom) was put in place because of him and not the guy running the show now in Chicago.
