You've gotta be kidding me...
It's amazing watching this whole process.
Guy starts (Mangini, Rex, Tannenbaum, whoever) and they are all better than their predecessor.
Then, of course the team doesn't win the super bowl every year (because it's impossible) and people find reasons to hate the coach/GM. People made fun of Mangini not saying anything and then talked about how great it was that Rex said everything on his mind (Even though he really doesn't). The team had no high end talent when Tannenbaum took over so he promptly realized that he had to try to acquire whoever they thought had pro bowl ability. Revis, Brick, and Mangold were all guys in this class. Then because he traded up to get the likes of Revis and Harris and people learn to ***** about us not having later draft picks and this supposed lack of depth.
People still fail to realize that you aren't going to win anything if your best players get hurt. Unless you have Peyton Manning or Tom Brady at least. They also fail to realize that in a salary cap world, you can't go out and pay for depth. It's just impossible. Some positions are going to be thin.
Now you get a GM rumored to make a signing like the one listed in this thread and someone makes the giant leap that he's already better than the previous GM. Without actually knowing anything about the player. It's hilarious and sad.
In a few years, unless we get lucky and strike gold at QB, we won't be winning the super bowl and people will just be hating this GM as much as Tannenbaum and Bradway.
Hell, Rex has had the most success of any coach in this franchise's pathetic history outside of Weeb and people STILL want him gone. AND he did it with a BOTTOM 5 QB!
