Drunken Minotaur Zebra Posted January 6, 2016 Share Posted January 6, 2016 So a lot of people on here think TD is an awful GM when it comes to picking outside of the first round, or when it comes to the trenches (and a lot of people would be right about that).They also think he's an egotistical numbskull who thinks he has a god given talent to find "gems" that somehow every other team missed on (which in reality are just project players that are almost always picked 2-3 rounds ahead of their draft projection). They would also be right about that.But the one thing I will give TD, is he knows money. He knows how to structure contracts and ensure we are never gasping for cap space (like the Stains perpetually are, and its coming back to bite them). With the new state of our team, I HIGHLY doubt TD has any decision in the draft. I think in order of importance it is Quinn > Pioli > Raheem Morris tbh. I think he is a glorified accountant who was thankfully taken out of the decision making in the draft, and this past draft being a decent one for once in forever seems to back that up. If he is fired we could definitely lose out on his magic with money, but would we gain anything scouting-wise? I find it hard to believe out of Quinn/Morris/Pioli (if he stays after TD is gone), that a new GM would have any valuable input at all in terms of scouting. So is it worth ending up in cap **** like some teams, and handing out absurd contracts (look at what Chip Kelly gave Byron Maxwell... lol), for the "possibility" of a GM being slightly better at scouting?
