  • Best Way to Build a Team: Draft or Free Agency?

    I didn't know where to put this forum so I put it here.

    I say draft because its proven by many teams (Packers, Chargers, Patriots) that it is a successful, long term solution.

    Silverback....still the best.

      It is obviously the draft, but teams like to fill the last pieces of their puzzle with free agents. I like the draft deal a whole lot, but I dont mind spending some money and grabbing some free agents as well.

          It's easily the draft. Too many teams are resigning their key players early that the chances of multiple impact players reaching FA is slimmer. Add in the additional cost of FA.

          That said, an effective team still has to be able to search FA.

              It's definitely the draft. Free Agency can be a crutch. The Chiefs are in full rebuilding mode because we used FA too much to patch holes instead of drafting younger players to be long term solutions.

                      I know this is stupid, it's obviously the draft. Someone defend the free agency logic or lock this thread

                        well I thinks it's the draft, hands down, but letme try to defend FA for giggles:

                        For the immediate future, FA is much more important. You need to bring in role players to fill holes. If you can find a good role player, especially for a "show me" contract ala Kawika Mitchell last year, you get a very good player. Rookies are proven to develop better when sitting a year under tutiledge from a vet at their position. Rookies also don't often come in and contribute right away.

                        Now i know it's not "building" persay, but hell, I tried

                          Just to go outside of the obvious choice, you can argue free agency by....
                          never mind, you can't.

                            drafting until your at the doorstep of the super bowl and then get a big name FA that you need to add the last piece (patriots, Randy Moss)

                              i would really like to just try and do an argument for free agency but i just cant come up with anything....

                              like most people have been saying, draft draft draft! and then when your close, fill your last few holes with some FAs to get you over the hump.
