SOMEONE should have. Only the team President and Owner are above the GM.

He is obviously great with numbers.

The only downside is we have over-paid numerous players during his tenure and our last 5 drafts have been pretty poor.

I'd imagine he's looking to shake-up the draft scouts if this continues, if he hasn't already. Changes in the scouting department often go unnoticed.
True Dat... and they have missed lately on the defensive side. We drafted Al Woods DT who now plays in a backup role for the Steelers. Perhaps the addition of Ryan, aka Jabba, will help us in talent evaluations for the defense. Speaking of which.... is Spencer still sought after by the Saints?

Re: Best GM in football.

Sorry...

...I know everyone is in divine rapture over his cap magic in the last 48 hours of rolling the debt forward (he must be a Democrat)...

...but the drafts, and lack of oversight and "institutional control" nets him a "F"...

So he may get an "A" for lecture but he's flunking the lab...

He needs to get his scouting and personnel house in order because these drafts and poor fits just aren't going to get it...

...the only GM that gets an "A" is the one with the current Lombardi trophy...

Politics creates negativity, I am just one of those people that believe that it isnt necessary in sports talk because people will only use it to degrade or attack the thoughts and opinions of others
