From what I read they won't be getting anymore revenue sharing because they are a big market. So the owner is basically taking all the risk that this thing works out. I'd much rather be the worst and see that they're trying to build a system than losing draft picks for signing mediocre players and n...

This is the closest thing to a true evaluation I've read. Way too many 10's being given out. There may be 2-3 players in the NFL that are true 10's.
