If we had the same players all the time that Lip has mentioned then I say we have a bunch of losers, thats not the case, just a bunch of players that were decent but not just good enough.
It comes down to JR running a big market team like a small market team.
Been my contention for years. Always hear about going out to get top level talent, but end up with meets requirements. Sure, maybe 1 or 2 Marquee players to spin the turnstyles to buy churros and dogs, but no big dogs that bring home silverware.
