Reasons to drink the kool aid

There are a lot of different opinions on how we screwed up this draft.  Think of it from Smithiak's point of view, was there a pick at each spot we had in the draft that would have made all of US happy?  We all know that is not possible, so whatever their picks were, some group of people would be screaming we missed some Longhorn backup waterboy.

So the ones that are paid and responsible to make the picks did just that.  And they did it last year.  And the year before, where we have a significant number of roster players and starters from those drafts.  An arguement can be made that in 05 we were bad enough that it wasn't hard to get a lot of starters from the 06 and 07 drafts, but even if that is true, we are at least moving in the right direction (down in the draft!).

I say we thank the front office for their picks, and welcome all the new starters and competition to our roster.  Just heal most of the injuries from last year and we are 10-6 with that roster.  I think the Colts are on the decline, and this may be our year against VY.  The Jags have the dreaded "expectations" and we are a last place team with nowhere to go but up!
