How would Belichick have done....


over the past 7 years with the roster that DelRio has had? As far as I know, and correct me if I'm wrong, but Del Rio has never had the final say in the selecting of draft choices. Up until this past year, Shack Harris was in charge and had the final say in who the Jags selected on draft day as well as who was signed as free agents. All the first round busts from Williams to  Leftwich to Jones to Nelson to Harvey(still have some hope) are all on Harris' watch. I know Del Rio probably had some say but not enough to be held accountable. 2009 arrives and thank God Harris is in Motown and Gene Smith takes over as general manager. Although he has been with the team since the inception, his input as far as who was actually being selected was minimal at best. With Smith at the reigns, no more selecting Florida Gators high in the draft just to try and appease the vocal locals and no more spending big money on over the hill free agents. Smith has already started building a foundation through the draft that will serve our team well for many years. I get tired of the so called Jag fans who say "look at the players we let go and how they are succeeding in othe places(Stroud and Mike P. for example). What about Bobby McCray, who was arrested recently and Fred Taylor(who I love and will always be a Jaguar), who was injured and hardly played for New England, not to mention the former receivers let go and not picked up by ANYONE, probably working at Mickey D's today. One last thing, and I apologize for rambling, a very important part of having a winning team is mindset. I believe the team as a whole has the right mindset, from owner to coaches to the revamped roster of players, however I am more concerned with the mindset of the fanbase. It's too bad that you can't bottle and sell the dedication, enthusiasm, knowledge, and undying support of the contributors of BCC and sell it to the rest of the fans of the Jacksonville Jaguars. Two more quick points, if Gene Smith drafts Tim Tebow with our first round pick, everything great he has done so far will be washed away in an instant. Also, perception is reality, and according to Belichick, "it is what it is", the reality is that Brady and the combination of Welker and Moss have won the same amount of Super Bowls as Garrard with Matt Jones and Reggie Williams. New England is history.
