    JBender reacted to MAD597 in Is TD still as horrible as you thought?   
    Yes he is, one win does not negate 11 years of bad OL's and DL's. How many edge rushers have we drafted and signed as FA's here that failed here? How many picks have we wasted on the OL that never panned out? We've had multiple Head coaches and DC's and it is a consistent problem where the tenches have had issues.
    He also had a hand in hiring these coaches so it is two fold with him, and you cant get out of blaming him for it. Either the coaches that he helped bring in can`t develop talent along the trenches or the players he has a hand in picking aren't good along the trenches or the most likely scenario is a combination of both.

    Could you guys cry about something else? Someone comes in here and just says bye and you guys jump all over it! I mean why not just let it go like an adult instead of coming into the post and assuming your keyboard commander roles? Maybe you have so many posts because you don't have a life outside of a message board.

    It's so bad this season that I'm not even mad about how good the Saints and Panthers are doing. 
    We've got too many problems to even care about them.

    I'm a conservative and very republican, but he is not wrong.  The city will be underwater in the next 50 years and there is no denying the fact that the global mean average temperature is rising faster than anytime in history and that ocean levels are raising by inches every decade.

    Yeah no reason to bash the guy, he wasn't in control of his injuries and when he was 100% he played pretty well. Not great but better than the average Falcon Olineman.

    Whoa! According to TD it was Smitty doing the picking of players! I don't believe Smitty Picked Ryan no more than I believe he picked Jake Matthews.

    You clearly don't read all my posts or selectivly pick what you want. Smitty was a problem no doubt. The time management wasn't TD's fault. TD however is just as guilty (Drafting of talent or lack there of) and tried to throw Smitty under the bus saying Smitty made him pick this guy! TD is absolutly a problem and anyone that thinks otherwise has his head in the sand. I mean look at the contract he signed Baker to! I am not going to rehash all the mistakes he made as it is well documented on this board just use the search function. So assuming TD is right and SMITTY made him pick these guys that failed, then what does that say about TD? I can tell you if I go to my boss and tell him this is the way I want it done he is going to laugh and look for the hidden cameras. The good news is we don't have to worry about TD as far as talent goes anymore we got SP. Blank thinks he is a problem too because not only did he strip him of draft powers but he also has the new coach reporting to him. However TD is still handing out contracts so wait for Bakers 10 year 75M extension.

    I could care less about Cleveland or debating who 'won' in a trade with an incompetent organization. The trade played a huge role in our downward spiral as a playoff contender to where we've been the last two years, in my view.
    You disagree. I'm cool with that.

    I think we can observe a few things and draw conclusions. We know for a fact the draft is Pioli's responsibility. You're right that this doesn't mean he has any more say in who gets drafted among those on the board, but he definitely has more say in who the choices are. Pioli slots, TD picks. That much seems to be pretty clear. Who gets slotted to begin with has an affect on who gets picked, though. And while I don't think Quinn has anything near a Parcells level of control, I do think it's clear that he can cut whomever Dimitroff drafts if he wants. I don't think they said he has control over the roster for nothing -- that seems to me to indicate a change. Not that Smitty couldn't cut players who weren't performing, but I'd wager he had to collaborate more. Finally, Quinn reports directly to the owner, not to Dimitroff. That's no small thing.

    I can't find fault with your opinion and I can respect the fact that you appreciate what Smitty has done. In some aspects TD is safe now because SUPPOSEDLY he has no power outside of managing the contracts and cap. We will see. I will say this though with this draft class if it fails I will not give TD ownership of it. However if it succeeds I will not give him any credit either. This is on Quinn and SP now. Also I think we all hope the best when it comes to Quinn but I also think we shouldn't crown him yet either.

    We will be better with SP running the show and that's exactly what the article was saying. Look I just want to win...period!!!!! And TD did a horrible job in 7 yrs building a team. He's the guy to hold accountable for our sorry @$$ defensive talent and lack of overall depth. If you can't find a pass rush and build a defense in 7 yrs it's time to move on.....just saying
