I think it was the movie "Colors" where Robert Duvall said to Sean Penn: "There were two bulls sitting on the hillside and overlooking all the female cows. The younger bull said to the older bull "Let's run down there and #@!$ one of those cows. The older bull turned to the younger one and said "No son, let's walk down there and #@!$ them all."
Point is (without sounding as graphic) we should use our $12 million in cap money remaining (after spending $7 million on our draft picks) on some solid players when the mad rush for FA's slows. We could sign two or three solid FA's this week or next without paying a king's ransom for one of the big name players. We are in need of consistent players...we are not paying for names alone. They are approaching this season correctly given who we have to sign next year IMO.
Great movie line.
I think we can all agree that the Bills are in the earlier phases of building this team. I am less interested in them making desperate attempts to fill every hole (including QB) than I am in the Bills building the team right. That includes:
1. Drafting well
2. Signing young players to semi-reasonable extensions, and
3. Cutting dead wood
We know they have not drafted well and hope Magoo is on to other things next year. I'll leave 2 out of it, because that's back to Buddy as well. But FINALLY, there appears the a parting of the clouds at OBD as far as whom to get rid of. Outside of Levitre, there hasn't been one release of a player that I disagreed with or even said...FINALLY!!!
