keeping these guys might actually hurt more than help because they make us just good enough to finish out of a prime draft spot but not good enough to make the playoffs because the rest of the team is in shambles.
it's that same approach that has kept us in this position for 7 years now instead of the 3 or 4 we could have rebuilt in.
I just mean dont move Leetch for mediocre talent or a 1st rounder that will be 25-30. If you can get a 20 year old that you feel can give your team something to start building around then go for it.
