    If we nail the draft we should be fine, but we all know they're going to spend a 2nd or 3rd on a guy who won't contribute in 2018 like a bunch of gumps.
    Or drafting for position when there have been runs on it. Passing on a falling player because the need isn't as immediate or even taking that player could leave gapping holes. We got multiple positional problems and depth issues on the o line. How many picks can you hit on late?

    The post-coital glow of losing Lance Dunbar.

    I agree. We lost JAGs (outside of Leary and Free) and will replace most with young guys of similar talent.

    Overall Dallas is still loaded with talent.

    I'm seriously questioning our ability to coach that talent deep into the playoffs. That's the Patriots' edge-- always has been.

    Belichick and his staff, despite turnover over the years have always found players that suited their system, heralded or not, rejects, retreads, whatever. I don't know what light went on for Belichick because he sucked as a head coach at Cleveland but there's no denying he's done a good job in NE. Yeah, there were all the "gates" videogate, deflategate and so on but his teams always find a way to win, often with marginal players.

    Definitely agree about poor cap management by the Jones family over the years though.
