My opinion was explained a few pages back in this thread. I'm of the belief that the team has to be competitive before anything else. Winning environments - even if you aren't a winning team - is the
way to properly develop prospects, and is the key to success.
If guys make the team based on their talent alone, there is no reason to compete. If guys have to out-work other guys who simply show up with blue collar effort to make the team, then chances are, they will work harder and show character, which will result in stronger development.
In essence, hard work is contagious, and breeds hard work. Combine hard work, skill, and team play, and you have all of the ingredients for championships.
