In response to rkarp's comment:
I'm inviting you, Babe and anyone else to name the GM's that pick all winners... I suspect you all will continue to ignore this request and keep arguing without providing any specific examples?!
Wozzy, as I said, it isnt the players chosen, it is the philosophy of always chasing the "value" when "performance" is needed.
Of course we will see what happens when the pads are on, but I for one was disappointed that DT was not addressed, and the team traded back rather than forward to take one. Cant I express that opinion here?
BB is about league average with the draft, everyone has said that. Pre 2010, his drafts were not good, 2010 thru last year he has greatly improved.
Repeat, repeat, repeat. BB is a great coach. Maybe the best in NFL history. He is a great GM, maneuvering the cap better than anyone. I have not been in agreement with his drafting and free agency philosophy.
Does that answer your chirp?
No actually you and Babe did exactly what I thought you would; deflect.
Give us three GM's that are better than BB at picking talent, if he is "average" at best than this shouldn't be too difficult?
I think BB is great at evaluating talent. But come on, he isn't the best at everything and ignoring the fact that the Superbowls he won were with a largely inherited group of defenders that were HOF caliber is just a disingenuous way to carry on.
He's made some tremendous selections for sure, and some really savvy moves in trade.
But at evaluating talent?
I can give two right off the top of my head (of course in MY opinion) that have done a better job in the last six or so, and another in the last 10 (less perhaps the last season or so).
Jerry Reese and Kevin Colbert. These guys pick WRs, OL, and pass rushers off of trees. At least tow of those categories BB has struggled with.
Now you guys can blow me up, calling me "irrational", pink hat, stupid, Jets fan, troll. Whatever. I have to go to the tailor.
Well, when you go 7-9 or 8-8 and miss the playoffs every 2 years, you can the opportunity to pick "WRS or Pass rushers off trees".
Would you prefer BB tanks a season to get a top 10-15 pick?
Reese and Colbert just featured teams who missed the playoffs, dude. Again. And, don't expect them to be banging down the door of their dvisions with the mass exodus of players that just left those teams, either.
How about I just poke holes in your premise without me needing to call you a pink helmet, Z?
Don't slide into that "Brady can do no wrong, I blame BB" routine again.
A lot of the Giants ups and downs have to do with the fact that Coughlin isn't as good a coach, and Eli is incredibly streaky as a QB.
And yeah, Bill has had better regular season results, but in the post-season both of those teams (ironcially built around defense) have fared better. They have won four superbowls together since BB won one. So, they have that going for them.
But I'm sure Bill has no culpability for his drought .... he's perfect.
