    So, is success judged by the amount of starters? Or games won?

    If we're judging Spielman on how many starters he drafted, then he's a decent GM.

    Now, if we're judging Spielman on how many games those starters have won... it's a different story.
    I'm bloviating douchebag and Ricky is a great GM

    And why the hell is Blanton starting??? only time he shows up on film is when his ass is getting run the fuck over!!!
    Who doesn't? Broncos GM John Elway and his picks along with data suggesting the lower the draft pick the less likely to remain on the team.

    There s only two things stopping you - fear and common sense!! The Truth you CAN"T HANDLE THE TRUTH!!!!!!!!

  3. If you look at the data a 7th round pick has just over a 50/50 chance to make the team.

    Starters doesn't necessarily mean they are good players, it simply means it's the best we got. Blanton is a good example of that.

    I agree.

    If the Vikings are starting seventh round draft picks, it may be because their other draft picks did not work out or they could not be in free agents. The key is the quality of the personnel on the field.

    Basically this move means that the Jersey boys are not changing anything but they think they can pull the wool over our eyes with a slight of hand. If you think anything is going to change just because his title changed you are dreaming. Wilfs will still be running the same triad of trial and error they have been running since he bought the team.

    We have officially become the new Detroit Lions of the NFC Norris Division and I guess Spielman is the new Matt Millen.

    Yippee.
    Yep. The new Lions.
