Can we stop with the BAP stuff now?

After watching this draft, it became pretty apparent that need trumps BAP. Vic was great for Jaguar fans, made a lot of us a lot more discerning than we otherwise would have been. But let's face it, Vic's lessons were often outdated shortly after they were conveyed. Remember Salary Cap 101? We learned all about the salary cap (though it should be noted that the information at the time was sound) right before it became irrelevant as teams like the Colts and Cowboys figured out how to beat it by future amortization. Good info, bad timing.

Sadly, that's a metaphor for the majority of Vic's lessons. Check your mug, how much of that is true today? This is not a knock on Vic, as I mentioned above, he elevated the understanding of this [once] great game for many of us. But there is a new world order at play here, and it's time for Jaguar fans to evolve.

"Run the ball, stop the run;" "Receivers are a dime a dozen;" "Picks not...I can't remember exactly what he said about draft picks and their supreme importance but I'm fairly certain it's dated.

BAP is no longer the Savvy way to approach the draft. The Savvy teams target a player and then go get him.
