The Hawks caught lightning in a bottle and the fact that it's been done will make it near impossible to do again. The sheer number of transactions the first two years set the table. We've already turned over all the rocks, we've combed every teams scrap heap at a magnitude that was embarrasing, taken the only other Probowler from the CFL and drafted the 1 in a million starting QB. And if every team could easily draft Probowlers from the 3rd round and beyond they'd all already be doing it. If we were to try to do it all over again, I'd think it wouldn't work because all those things were near impossible to do the first time. The only thing that can be redone would be to control the cap and identify players that fit what we do.
Just remember, football is 80% mental and 40% physical.
