Exactly above. If this was a solo Woody search, we'd be screwed. But the search firm has a great reputation, so it doesn't bother so much.
I understand the GM search has been 2 weeks, but this is obviously a decision you don't want to screw up. Whoever gets hired already knows what he wants to do with the team/roster. And those decisions aren't due until after the Super Bowl.
But I'd like to have a GM in place before the Senior Bowl, especially if the GM is a a personnel guy (which I hope it is).
This search will wrap up very soon.
