I don't understand how everyone says that luck inherited a " bad team". He inherited a perrinial playoff contender who had lost their starting QB for one season and had atrocious play from their back up. Losing your qb can throw your team into a pitfall just see the 2011 Bears or 2012 Eagles.
There team was never gutted. They allowed some players to go in free agency and added others. Garçon was the only player of note to leave during free agency.
