i can see that not signing fields or DD's new contract, might, might have put us in a stronger postion right now but you can't just keep hoping you get a good player in lottery, trading "failed" players for picks and hoping the next picks turn out better and putting things off for another year, and another year.

lowry would not have been happy playing for a team who wasn't looking seriously at winning games this season, may not have resigned when his contract goes, then that's a backward step again.

all those armchair GMs out there might think they could have done better, (hell i like to play armchair GM too,) but the reality is DC was looking to build a winning team and wasn't looking to build for too long. This is the team, we're going with it.

trades at some point are still an option.
