Be patient. They have a "plan"...to not spend any money.
Lawson was only $3 million. Crazy we weren't able to sign him for that salary, especially with the massive cap room.
P.S. The apologists for the owners and GM on this board are starting to make me ill. Some are stating, "nobody wants to come here". False: Arizona and Seattle are signing a ton of quality players that will upgrade their team. Umenyiora stated yesterday that he would like a move to Seattle. It is a lame-brain excuse.
Others are stating, "let's let the coach figure out who is good." Silly. Each team has tape and scouts. If you don't know who is good or not good, you should drive 16-wheel trucks instead.
It really comes down to a commitment to win. And, the team is showing this season... that they really aren't hungry to win.
Apologists should be sick to their stomachs that the franchise of Walsh, DeBartolo, Policy, Montana, Rice, and Lott is a bottom-barrell team, instead of defending management relentlessly as if they are related.
Still waiting for Jed to emerge to say that we will make the playoffs. He would be ridiculed from coast to coast.
We have become a "loser" franchise. Congrats, apologists. Now, back to supporting the great Trent Baalke and Jed York.
My feeling is York is saving all he can to finance the stadium. I'm hoping like crazy that as Rod Brooks pointed out on his radio show yesterday that it takes a new stadium to spend money. Look at the Jets/Pats/Eagles/Cowboys/Falcons/Seahawks/Redskins. They all have had new stadiums built in the last 10 years or so.
