Look at what Philly does. When they have down seasons, they don't sit there and lose for years to get top players. They change up the team through FA and the trade market. I would rather go that route.

Thanks guys but I do disagree with you about grabbing scraps to just get into the playoffs.

What Philly did after 06-07 was make some smart trades for player's rights (Timmonen, Hartnell) and smart UFA singings (Briere). I'm all for that but since then I will pass on some of the daft moves Homer has made.
