Take a deep breath

Ok, everybody needs to take a deep breath and just calm the hell down for a minute. Did the draft go the way we expected? No. Is there a damned thing we can do about it? Again no. Is bitching and whining going to make us win 10 games next season? Once again...No. 

Take a step back, realize we got some great talent and players with a lot of potential throughout the draft. No matter what we did, barring the intervention of the football gods, we were going to be picking early again in the 2010 draft. There were just too many holes to patch at once. 

I was fairly upset during the draft and confused as hell by a lot of the picks, but now that I've had some time to look back on it, I realized that the front office was going for talent not need. It's the only way we can go. Also they were looking in the long term and I think they realized that next year will have a lot more talent defensively in the draft, so why tie up a position this year for a player that might not be who you want, when there's going to be more options next year.

All I see now is a fanbase that's deeply divided when we need to be coming together and putting on our blue and silver work helmets to get through the rebuilding process of the next two to three years.
