The Favre trade was a mistake for one lousy year but they have brought in some good talent over the last two years. The 08 draft was pathetic but they did form a pretty good o-line and running game. They got a good TE and some WR's with potential.
Leon Washington, Nick Mangold, D Fergy, Darelle Revis, David Harris, Dustin Keller are some decent draft picks.
Free agents like Faneca, Woody, Pace and Jenkins were good pickups as well...but it isn't too hard to get talent when you throw that kind of money around. They bet it all on this season and lost...reminiscent of Shula in 95...but we made the playoffs at least.
If you can't coach those guys, something is wrong. No way they should have lost 4 out of the last 5 games. He got canned because he lost to Denver, Seattle and San Fran....but Favre stunk it up too. Was it Brett's fault or bad game planning?
