Thank you for this straight forward, enlightened post.
Ballard wasn't giving GM Speak when he pointed out that in his learned opinion we were missing something in the lockerroom. We were missing some leadership and attitude. OK. He and his leadership team likely have been talking and agreeing about seeing this as the season went on. And how ridiculous that a player instantly loses those abilities when he isn't on the field.
JERK wasn't the right word, but the point was correct according to our GM.
A Reggie White could come in as a FA and make an immediate impact on the culture. lol.
I think building what is needed will happen if CB keeps drafting his high character types.
Narrowed it down to Okereke, Turay, and Campbell before making a decision. Ultimately went with Turay. Okereke won't get enough playing time, and even though Campbell could be a beast for us, Turay was starting to reach that potential last year before breaking his ankle, and I think he'll get double-digit sacks next year.
