I think FA is going great! I'm happy with what we've done so far, and I'm 100% OK riding into the season with Ballard's band of misfits. He has a vision as to what kind of person should grace our locker room, and I agree with him. The "me me me" players like Moncrief will never last here anymore.
People need to understand, this is a CULTURE change. On Ballard's introductory press conference he even said that the most important thing is having a great culture in the locker room.
Riddle me this, Vegas had the eagles at 8 wins for 2017 during the pre-season. Yes, you heard me... 8. They were 40-1 to win the superbowl. They were projected to lose every single playoff game they played, even home underdogs...Anyone have any idea why they won? Are they a team full of mega stars? Nope. They are not, they were guys who gelled together and each player made everyone around them better.
It speaks volumes as to why we hired Frank Reich as the HC, he just came from this scenario, he knows the blueprint, him and Ballard share a vision, and IMHO it's the correct vision. We might not be world beaters this season, but rest assured we are moving in the right direction.
