    Yeah I used this example before but I'll get called an alarmist if I say it's like the no longer Redskins and Jim Zorn. Lovie actually wasn't a bad coach he just got desperate and started looking for quick fixes when the defense started aging- overspend on a coach killer QB and you'll be in the same boat.

    Carolina's abysmal attempt at building a team from a new school, analytics lens has led them full circle back into old school thinking. I'm surprised Fitterer didn't say Hogmolly during his press conference.


    At some point, you have to pick a lane and stay in that lane for longer than 12 months, but this ridiculous owner doesn't have the patience for that. The net result is an endless series of one year rebuilds.

    actually there's been 3 different processes by my count:

    1. beginning the rebuild teardown by cutting cam,turner freeing up cap for stopgap guys like teddy*, okung, rhules college buddies then the all defense draft to fix the worst unit on the team

    *tepper was reportedly sold by rhule that Teddy would be a legit franchise qb not guy that can keep your head above water while you position yourself for a real qb that he mentors. This means that rhules teddy is everything you look for wasn't coachspeak but honesty-this is a my new girlfriend has a switchblade collection red flag.

    2. Deciding that the slow and steady rebuild was not going anywhere they dumped teddy, didn't re up okung, and filled the roster with worse vets traded for darnold hoping to rebuild him on the fly and hit the playoffs like the colts did with rivers.

    3. Darnold plays like darnold and the crappy signings do the same. Now begins the weird trade fest that you would expect from a team going all in with players on their legs Gilmore trade, Dan Arnold trade, the 2nd round pick can't be trusted... etc. Cam signing too

    So they did
    Regular rebuild
    Jumpstart a 7-8 win team rebuild
    And win one for the old guys build
    In 2 years.

    Gee why is the roster such an island of misfit toys?

    Fitterer is a Seattle guy, a team still trying to win with a philosophy that peaked in 2013 and even then was a throwback.

    The browns had this identity crisis too haslam hired a bunch of stats guys from baseball and it lead to factionalism and moves dictated by whichever of the nerds, the scouts/gm, or the coaches had the owners ear at the time.
