Accountability should be the word for the reaminder of the season. You can not improve unless you set expectations. If those expectations are not met then you address. Four years of historical data is enough to make your case for the contract you command or desire - players, staff, front office.

He doesn't think either of them is top 5 right now. He merely mentioned that they are the only two other draftees that have ANY potential of being top 5 quality players. I think Pitts will be a Pro Bowler when he gets a new coaching staff and better linemates (I think I made up a word!).

I want Casserly gone more than anyone for his wasting of picks, but I wanted to ask something to be fair. How many other teams have drafted more than 2 "top 5 players" or "top ten players" at their position in the last 4 years? We have had more draft picks and higher draft picks than most teams, but to think we should have a boatload of upper echelon players from rounds 2 through 4 of the draft is kind of unrealistic. Even if you look through draft results from the last 4 years it's tough to cherry pick in hindsight guys that are that good that met needs at the time. AJ and Dunta are right up there with the top end talent from other peoples drafts. The real problem is drafting guys to reasonably fill out an NFL roster or "third tier" players even. Hell, Babin and Wand wouldn't find a job anywhere most likely. Same for Hollings. Ragone and Joppru aren't helping b/c of injury and being a backup QB. So I'd say we've done alright getting really good players, we've just wasted so many picks on absolute garbage, instead of finding merely middle of the road NFL players. For more true difference makers (top 10 players) you gotta grab some of these guys in free agency, which we haven't done at all. 4 seasons and Todd Wade? is our best free agent aquisition.
