[QUOTE]Yes because having Sheard or Reed wouldn't have helped improve the D giving them an even better chance at winning a SB right now; at least not as much as Ras has provided

completely correct, dumb thread here
we spent the 33rd pick on an injury risk CB when Ayers was there (perfect if we went with a lot of 4-3) or as said above Brooks Reed (a 3-4 DE/OLB)
Matt Roth was also allowed to sign with a crummy team for a pittance when we had him in here just b/c he got a little greedy and asked for an extra 500k??? It's caled bargaining Bill... settle on 250k more and wrap him up.
We also should have at least kept Sanders and not held onto Merriweather hoping we could trade him when 31 teams knew we didn't like him, them dump him anyhow after you sacrificed Sanders to make $ for Ellis/Ocho... or EVEN BETTER actually spent some $ that you still had and not let Goldson fly back to San Fran after he met with us over the summer.
This team could have Ayers, Roth and Goldson instead of Koutovidas, Tarpinian, and Sergio.
Not to mention that a different and better personel at OLB/DE could have made the Carter injury never occur if he wasn't being asked to do so much...
and of course we could have used pick #28 on something (Wilkerson, Sheard, Hayward) over Vareen and pick #27 this year... although the jury is still out on that, we didn't pass over a Matthews for Butler/Tate.... yet.
Let's not celebrate a 13-3 record and great execution/coaching by claiming the correct decisions were made in the draft and free agency... they were not
