Condotta calls it like it is. No big deal, winningest team in the NFL. They've been at the limit of the cap every year. they've paid their best players top dollar, and they've cut good players who have gotten ridiculous paychecks elsewhere.
Unlike what Emmanuel Ocha said "You can buy a Superbowl" What a craxckpot. Wrong, you can't afford to pay everybody!
The F.O. has made mistakes though! They left Cable in control for too long, and they drafted too many "versatile" offensive linemen. Their early round OL draft mistakes were during the Tom Cable era. Let's put that behind us and draft a Left Guard for the left guard position! And let's draft a Center, for the center position!
Let John Schneider use his best resources for evaluating offensive linemen, and let's follow a model like the Saints and the Rams. Take the best from those 2 teams, and make it fit your system, while still keeping your system open for modification.
My take, this is a legit topic, but I think some have blown it way out of proportion. Russell wanted to make sure that the message got out there. However, he is a QB, not a Scout, and he is fairly inexperienced when it comes to team building. What he's doing here I think is smart, put the pressure on, then go about his business.
But "NO MORE SUPERSTARS!" Just think of the kind of Left Guard we could have gotten for what we paid Iupati, combined with the 7 Million we wasted on Greg (I have buyers remorse) Olsen!
