Why Don't They Get IT?



I was just reading some NFL sites, and I saw that the Washington Redskins, once again, are spending way too much money on very little talent, opening the check book to every washed up wide receiver 30 years old and over. I can't help but wonder why they continue to not get it. Look at the most successful franchises of the last ten years--the Steelers, the Colts, and (grrrrrrr I hate to even say it), the Patriots. They never spend money on washed up names, and they are always in contention. When Shanahan was hired, the Redskins made a point of saying that they were done spending money frivolously on mediocre talent, but here they go again, doing the same stupid things that make them 6-10 every year. I am not a football expert and don't spend my life figuring out the best things to do to be a successful football team, but along with most sensible people, I see how stupid it is to waste money on the Brandon Stokley's of the world when a strong scouting department, good drafting, and good player development is the way to build a successful NFL franchise. I guess I shouldn't complain. As long as teams like Washington, Cincinnati and Denver keep being stupid, the Steelers will continue to shine as one of the best organizations in all sports. Bring on 2011 and ring number seven.
