We just need to do better things in the right places, and Shanahan needs to get this team believing in his philosophy again... or he needs to go.
Yeah but the key is to follow-up on this. We can't have all these players leave via FA or blow the next 3 drafts.
The missing piece is consistency and discipline. We are so hell bent on winning this year that we are sacrificing the future. We make very short-sighted decisions.
Case in point, was Jarvis Moss really worth moving up for? Seriously?! There were are any number of pass-rushers equal to him (at least in the number of question marks) available and it cost us another pick. We can't do that kinda crap.
I also believe that Simeon Rice was another catastrophic failure at this point.
