My attempt to come up with an analogy of what the Jaguars are doing under the new regime. Fixing this team is like restoring a vintage muscle car, say a 1969 Chevelle. This Chevelle (the Jags) is rusted out with bald tires, an engine in complete disrepair, cracked windshield, and no muffler. To restore this machine to the conditon we desire will take about 2 years. Signing an older free agent for lots of money is similiar to putting nice tires, with still some thread left, on at the beginning of the process. By the time you fix the carburetor, repair the broken windshield, and add a new exhaust, those tires will now need replacing. It is probably smarter to put newer, less used tires on at first, even if they've been laying unused in the garage, so when the project is complete, there's no need to go out and spend more money on new tires. Some of these other teams, even the lowly Chiefs, only need to add a clutch, and maybe a fuel pump, so signing an expensive free agent makes more sense. I am confident that the Jags are on the right path but for sports fans, patience is the hardest virtue. On a different note, I hope if we don't trade down, that we select Mingo and Elam with our first 2 picks and hope they turn out to be the next Von Miller and Bob Sanders.
