Ballard is not infallible, but his building for sustained, long term success is what I want from my team's GM.
The last time the Bucs won the Super Bowl (2002), they followed it up with:
18 years without winning a playoff game
only making the playoffs twice (including 12 straight years without making playoffs)
having a winning record just 5 times, with 3 of those being 9-7.
Maybe this time it will be different for the Bucs, maybe not.
But if that's what lies between Super Bowl wins, then you can have it. I'll sit in the section with Four2itus, chad72, Fluke_33 and Lucky Colts Fan, and enjoy being entertained by meaningful games almost every year.
Having Mack, Taylor and Hines as RB's could really be a game changer. They can all catch the ball well and can open things up quite a bit if Reich chooses. Doyle, Cox, Hilton Pittmann, Campbell, Pascal and the rest should be enough to keep the offense moving.
Hey Chad, let's roll. Please do another random ordering of the 19 GMs. When done, first send it to NFLfan via PM, and then post it to this thread. I've already done the random numerics and sent to NFLfan.
