Fallacy of the pre-determined outcome.
I agree. I cried about it then. Coaches go into "survival mode" sometimes. They coach for their jobs. They don't care about who is in the draft b.c their likelihood is at stake.
We are paying for the miss on Gholston now. We were able to mask it the first couple of years b.c the rest of the roster was strong. But the past couple of years we have been starving for a pass rush and the lack of one has killed us.
