You say it isn't working, but it was working pretty good. You don't start from scratch because it doesn't work in one season. It takes multiple years to rebuild, and what do you do if your new core only gets you to the 2nd round? You start again from scratch after two years of really trying?
At the end of the day, this calling for a full out rebuild is ridculous after eight games. I think this thread is a good place to dream a bit about a high pick after such demoralizing losses like last night's. But what you want just makes no sense. This core is pretty young and it's far easier and probable to improve though good trades, free agency and drafting than by blowing it all up. Even this season is far from lost.
I'm not contradicting myself at all. You were talking about 18 months ago like it was some huge achievement. It wasn't. If you look at the overall body of work, it was an aberration.
It's not about just the 8 games. Retooling isn't working. Hasn't worked before. Should we just keep banging our head against the wall and hope that the next time we do it, it won't hurt?
