YOU'RE the one who depends on hope. You're advocating cleaning out all of our best players and replacing them with rookies. What are the odds that you find REMOTELY adequate replacements for all of Flowers, DJ, Albert, Bowe, and Hali?
Very small. Very very very small. Under your plan you're putting us in an unmanageable hole for 10+ years. You're putting this team into a 2003-present Oakland Raiders type of hole.
That's a huge and unnecessary gamble. If a player is shown to be as fickle as it is depending on who's the coach and how they practice, doesn't it make sense that with a new coach in charge (hopefully one who's competent) they will play back at their usual high level?
I'm no football GM, but my theory makes a lot more ****ing sense than the garbage you're proposing.
For the record:
BlackBob's plan going into 2013: No QB, Manti Te'o, no other playmakers around him
Normal people's plan going into 2013: QB, no Manti Te'o, but we get to keep Albert, Flowers, DJ, Hali, Charles, and hopefully Bowe.
