Time To Give Blank Some Credit


Truth.

This thread will not appeal to a select posters who hate everything about this current regime and want to see heads roll...

However, for all of us rationally minded people I just. Wanted to give Arthur Blank some credit. He could have easily panicked after this past season. We went from a perennial playoff team and melted down to the 6th overall pick. Most teams/most owners would have fired the GM and the Head Coach and his coaching staff and started all over after a season like ours. Fortunately we have an owner who gritted his teeth, swallowed his pride and gave his front offfice /coaching staff support after a tough season. That was not the easy choice to make and we could easily have been talking about a rookie GM and Head Coach going into next season. Instead we can rest assured that we have a veteran coaching staff and front office to draft and develop players for us and it looks as though it is gonna pay off. After a through season there is a lot of hope for our team right now. I think Mr. Blank deserves some credit for that...

You don't become successful in business by firing productive employees for one failure.

And before some jack nut chimes in about how td and smithy aren't successful, in business terms they are successful. You may not like it, but they are still the best tandem this team has seen in the history of the franchise. The team has been relevant under their tenure.

very well said.

And they better get things back to the expectation with a big arrow pointing up in 2014... or they will both likely be looking for work. Or at least Smitty will.
