It's not exactly the same thing trying different players, is it? Of course there's something lacking in the assembly of the roster, but doing something different doesn't mean we have to blow it up. Maybe we don't try to sign so many plugs first. Or we try to trade one piece of our pretty strong defense. There are lots of things that you can do different before you have to blow everything up.
You know, you might be right, that this retooling simply won't quite work for the next five years, but then our chances of winning it all will still be significantly better than if we just trade everybody away now. And even with a full rebuild it's far from a sure thing that we will be even just as good as we are now in five or even ten years time.
