Ditto. FA is needed this year for sure... We draft seven maybe 2 will play. We need 4 or 5 upgrades fast.

That was back in the day. We need to evolve with the game and I thought we were with Ben but they still somehow find a way to run it. I mean how many times have we seen them drive down the field throwing like crazy and moving the ball than we get to about the 30 and it's run, run, incomplete, field goal. It pisses me off. I'm kind of going off but we need a change whether its draft or FA. And it needs to happen within a couple years. Who knows maybe that's what the Rat Birds are doing. Blowing the team up and starting fresh. Building for the future instead of the present.
3 superbowl appearances in 8 years and you want to blow the team up after 2 down-ish seasons? in the last 13 years theres been the patriots (5), colts (2), ravens (2), steelers(3), and raiders(1) as the AFC representative in the superbowl...do you know how many teams would KILL for that kind of success......such a spoiled, overly dramatic fan base we have. Franchise QB in the prime of his career, foundation of a top oline, and a defense constantly in the top 5 in stats.

I'm not talking right away. I'm saying give it 2-3 years and if it stays like this or gets worse why not take a different direction?

The sky is not falling
Fans tend to look at things in a vacuum. They are so intent on what's going on with their favorite team that they don't look around at what's happening with everyone else.
And that's what we've had the past couple of weeks with the Steelers, who have released Willie Colon and James Harrison and lost Mike Wallace and Keenan Lewis in free agency.
Depending on who you listen to, the Steelers are looking at having the first-overall pick in next year's draft to being so bad that everyone in the front office and on the coaching staff will be fired.
But when you look at what's happened to the Steelers - none of which was a surprise - it pales in comparison with what's going on in Baltimore.
With Ed Reed's signing with Houston Wednesday, the Ravens are now down eight starters. Eight!
And we're not even close to being done with free agency at this point.
Cincinnati, despite having a ton of salary cap space, has lost linebacker Manny Lawson without making any significant upgrades.
Meanwhile in Cleveland, the Browns have been active in free agency, but are still lacking in the most important position on the field, quarterback.
The bottom line is that nothing happens in a vacuum. And there will be other moves made both in free agency and in the draft.
There's several months for things to play out, including the all-important draft.

People like you can't see this because you have the audacity to be a reasonable, realistic, knowledgable fan...
sheesh my dick hurts
or shakin my damn head....either one, its up for interpretation
