We can accurately judge TD with a new coach

Smitty had a HUGE hand in personnel selection, and many times got his way

Apparently old Smitty had his hand in the pie way more than any of us thought. I'm pretty sure most of the defensive draft picks and free agent acquisitions the last 4 years were guys Smitty and Nolan wanted for their crazy a$$ "Inside Out Scheme". We also don't know how much influence Smith had on the offensive personnel. I'm very surprised to learn Smith had so much influence on personnel decisions.

Players got to be coached up and put in the right position to succeed: coaching.

coaches also need talented players with "potential" coaches coach potential, how good a player can be.

But we have a bunch of players with low ceilings(i kno football cliche)

Everybody kmows this, experts others team scouts and even some of us fans

So you think Blank and Dimitroff were just making **** up about Smitty and Nolan not wanting pass rushers? And you'd be a fool to think that was the first time Smitty won a personnel battle with the FO.

i dnt think they wee making it up, smitty said the very first press conference, that he believes you build from the inside out and you gotta stop the run and run the ball..

How has TD done in doing this?

He drafts jerry, how did that tirn out?

He didnt draft another dlineman no higher then the 3rd round since.

So how did he do what smitty want?

The very last yr he decides to sign solia and jackson, they say hageman was a smitty move, thats fone with me, the depth and talent on the ENTIRE line is a joke and thats on TD to not only draft wjat the coaches need for their scheme and plan to wrk, but also draft GOOD football players.

At the end of the day you have final say, so there isnt really any excuse to why this defense has a bunch of backups

As questionable as some picks and signings have been, I'm willing to give Dimi another chance with a new coach

We know for a FACT that Smitty was heavily involved in personnel and its anyone's guess how many of those so called "reaches" were because of Smith. I'm willing to bet several

From the reports that have surfaced, looks like Smith got his way most of the time when it came to which players to pick. Absolutely stupid that he wasn't even willing to risk late round picks on guys with character issues (Greg Hardy anyone? Don't care if he never plays another snap, his production thus far was wayyyy worth a 6th round pick). But, oh wait, at least we'll get guys that were former team captains and can serve as special team aces! Oh, plus they can sing in the choir! Pick 'em Dimi! That's who I want on MY team!

Gah I'm so freaking glad he's gone now. I'm so high from that firing and have yet to fall from this cloud

What in the heck is a new coach going to do? Ill tell ya, NOTHING. He is going to lose games. We will be under .500 next year unless we get some major FA in here to shore up this defense. This team is terrible and besides Trufant we have no talent on that side of the ball. Thanks THomas

So you are going to give this so-called GM another chance? Man you must be crazy he should be with Smitty right now drinking a cold one fishing.
