Avril, Bennett, Winfield, Rice, Harvin, all disliked the way they felt they were treated or unappreciated. That ability opens the door wide open for us, I mean it's like saying we love you and were adopting you, welcome to the family.
But the great thing is, even though Pete makes all these guys feel the love, he's a stone cold killer if their level of play drops off in terms of either replacing them as a starter or shipping them out.
Like the BMW thing. Big Mike had a good season and really helped us one year, next year his production dropped and injury bug bit him a little, poof he was gone and the position was upgraded through other means.
It's kinda weird but cool how players like what they feel coming from Pete, yet with Pete their job is probably the least safe out of any team. He'll find some guy in Canada, he'll find some guy in the 6th, and he'll just replace your sorry butt at any moment if you don't bring it.
