Here's an opinion: There are some interesting points here. At the same time while many of us agree that Joe should have made some moves, some think that he was correct staying with the "core", maybe a little too long, but all in all he got a lot out of the team. Now, I am not sure that Carter is a franchise-changing player, but there may have been other opportunities along the way including both draft and trades to make this a more successful run. Now, these past couple of years Joe made some significant changes, even though some think that he hasn't done anything, or has made the team worse. It is a different team, that's for sure. Is it better? Maybe. For sure it couldn't be worse than last year's team. How good it can be depends on Joe's future moves and player development of the all the young talent that Joe's accumulated.
