    I don't trust him, at least not on defense when Reese is dealing with new free agent talent. I think we overpaid for Canty, Boley, and Rolle.

    I do trust JR to resign players that have played for us and are negotiating new contracts, so I know we won't overpay Rolle again.

    If you're just looking at the results then Reese is flawless.

    for me thats the bottom line. Dont care how the team got there but they got there with SB wins 2x in the last 6 seasons.

    No body is flawless but why complain, other then for the sake of debate, when the desired results are attained.

    I think every GM used to over pay every free agent (from another team). That is how the crazy economics of this league used to work. It has improved during this past off season but stars who blossom, especially non first rounders, in their first 4 years are going to be severely underpaid like Cruz and guys with some resume like Canty are going to be greatly overpaid. I think the new system is in the process of trimming that up, at least with regards to ordinary (non starts) free agents.
    No one remembers who came in second.

    It's easy to criticize after the fact.

    Lol. This guy talks more than anyone on the team but somehow gets a pass because they ask him to play more than one position. Rooting for him because he is on the team and they need him, but this guy doe a a lot of talking. Most of the big plays hat the defense Ives up seem o have him trailing the play because he bit or was lost. He needs to play a lot better no matter where they ask him to play. Don't dislike him, but he makes a ton of money and didn't play well last year. They need him to play big this year.

    I do not agree with the notion that Rolle's natural position is a deep safety, even if Rolle himself thinks that is the case.
