For people excited about next year...I understand that but these opportunities don't happen every year....it might be 4 or 5 down the road. This is not like the old days Free agency is a b***h.
Chin up! I don't think we're about to embark on another 1982 disaster. Despite what everyone was saying about the similarities between this year's team and the '81 team, this year's team will largely be together next year. And unlike the '81 team, this one is young, through and through.
Looking back at the '81 team, it took time to reconstitute the offense and build a defense that was able to buttress our offense . With the aid of a formidable defense, this team is a lot closer to next year's playoffs than the '82 team was.
I agree, free agency is often tough: but it's much more likely that this team will gain capability through free agency. Older, sane, competent players will be willing to come here for the coaching environment and a chance at a ring.
There's no getting around it: we are now one of the premier landing pads for talent in the league.
Chin up! This should be a very good off season for us. This year's trip to the playoffs was gravy. Next year is business.
