[QUOTE=Baddniss;3518821]Correct, but we DID succumb to the temptation of taking Brett Favre instead!
It was to fill a hole. It was FA instead of the draft, but it is the same concept.
No BPA. Instead, lets immediately fill a specific need...this is exactly what I am talking about. Great example.
Everyone at that time said Favre should retire...washed up. But we actively chased him & signed him for $10 million. Was he BPA at that time? NO WAY! in fact, 90% of the people you and I talked to then said he was "finished". Yet Tanny did it.
Tanny is the NFL's ULTIMATE anti-BPA.[/QUOTE]
We didn't draft Brett Favre. As I said filling holes via trade or FA goes against your argument that BPA is stupid. It actually enforces the BPA thoughts because you are making sure you fill holes in ways other than the draft if possible.
If your argument is that your team should fill all its holes no matter what then you are using all venues. This is not the same as BPA in the draft.
