How to build a football team.



It  has been touched on here and there, but it seems like a valid discussion.  Of course there are many ways to do it, but two interest me. 

The first is the Colts method.  It has been to surround Peyton with as many weapons as possible.  Premium picks are mostly used to try and get him the best talent available.  The defense is built to bend and not break.  To take advantage of having the lead.

The second style is to build up the rest of the team and give him  average players to work with in the skill positions.  Spend the premium picks on other parts of the team.  This in theory would make the offense less explosive and dominant, but result in a team that is more balanced.

The Pats seem to stick closer to the second option.  It does seem to take pressure off Brady some.  A lot of skill positions we have used draft picks on haven't turned out great.  Some bad luck, some misses.  Our teams seem to do well in the season and struggle in the post-season.  I know it is way more complex than that, but it is a disturbing trend.  I'm curious if people think we take the right approach, or would we have been better off taking the other one.
