you can't draft everybody you need to be a SB contender in a single draft. we can't. we're not close. so if Manning signs, it's predicated on us signing alot of FAs as well. if he comes here, he will want to win immediately. not only do you pay him a ton of money, but you pay others a ton of money and you make trades that end up costing you draft picks. you can't stock up through the draft if that's happening. as long as Manning is desperate to get back to a SB in 2 or 3 years here, we're not building through the draft. we're filling holes with free agents and trades just like Shanny tried to do for 10 years. it didn't work then, why would it work now?
