Agreed. Maybe you should have scored more points against me in week 1

Patriots - Were top 10
Broncos - Broncos got to the SB on their D and an aging Manning had enough to win
Patriots - Usually in the top 10
Seahawks - Top D in the game at the time Legion of Boom
Giants - Umenyiora, Tuck, Pierre Paul in and held back the Goat
Ravens - Defensive team, they won with Flacco
Packers - Pack beat the Steelers and they were actually 1-2 in defense ranks
Saints - I dont know about this season but Brees was probably top of his game so he didnt need a monster D cause he was putting up numbers
Steelers - Known for their D, top D that year


So Id say the D is pretty important and Mack is a generational D player that doesnt come along very often. They could probably move things around if they really wanted him.
Obviously teams usually need a decent defense to win the super bowl, I don't think anyone is disputing that. What is in question is spending a lot of your salary cap on one defensive lineman.

And the answer to that is right there. There are only a handful of them so you cant have one on every team.

Well there you go, you seem to be contradicting yourself, so why would you want to put a bunch of your teams salary cap into a position that even other teams don't value? Doesn't quite seem.... logical...

:facepalm:

They value it but since its rare(only a handful of guys that are worth max dollar) most teams dont have them. Which is why Gruden made a mistake when you have one you got to keep him around.

:double facepalm:

Yeah, the guy that makes 100 million dollars made the mistake, as you are so much smarter... hmm, okay...

Gruden doesn't want to spend a ton of money on a position that he thinks is not super valuable. History has shown that teams that win the super bowl don't spend a lot of money on this position, yet you call this a mistake. Doesn't matter if they are rare or not, if I am a coach and I want JJ Watt or Mack or whoever, I can get them for the right price, no matter how rare they are, the question is are they a good value and a good fit to the team.

Second, it is silly to call it a "mistake" until we see the draft picks. If he gets two great players and pays less then it is clearly not a mistake, can you agree to that?

So on the crappy side, I didn't start Sanders... On the bright side, I bet $500 on the broncos to win -1.5

I knew they'd square up after I dropped them. I should have stuck to my typical superstition principles; don't draft any Broncos
