The powers of the NFL have it wrong. They can fire all the coaches they want, it's the GM who truly control the team's destiny. John Fox made it to the SB for crying out loud, and he's made repeated errors in countless games (his decisions before and during the SB are stupefying). That brings me to Spielman. His tireless efforts and binders full of information are admirable but sometimes I'd like him to use his gut instincts, or eye test, instead. That being said I think he's done a fine job. I don't think he should be judged solely on his ability to get a QB. Let's face it, QBs are the hardest position to judge in all of sports. Le's not throw the baby out with the bathwater. This team had holes galore after our decision to go all in for a one time shot and I feel he's addressed many of those quite successfully. Of course the QB is ridiculously important but I say give him 2 more years minimum. He schooled the Seahawks with his Harvin trade so he deserves to see those picks come to fruition. Belichick drafts like chit yet he gets a pass because he got lucky with a 6th round pick. Seattle won the SB because of wise and luck. Does the best CB in the league get drafted in the 5th round? Too much luck. Spielman has succeeded with many picks. I can't rip him for failing once at the hardest spot to fill. Yet.
You know what's funny? If, and that's a big if, Spielman drafts a successful QB, he will be considered a great. That one position will probably determine his entire fate. No matter what else he did. Like rebuilding a fallen franchise.
mstm, I think our new guy won't be doing any of that after watching this scene.
Spielman didn't draft for the scheme. Did you watch that abortion on defense last season? 30 points a game and perhaps the worst pass defense in the league. The talent level on the field, especially on defense, was just awful!...As for Patterson, what was he supposed to do bench the leading receiver(Simpson) or the guy making $14 million a year?(Jennings) Hindsight is 20/20 and the coaches weren't put in the best position. Again Spielman's fault! QB failure across the board probably didn't help the situation either...Suffice to say I was not a big Frazier fan, but the team didn't quit on him. They were just BAD...SKOL Brother!
