This hiring sucks. He's not officially the GM so hopefully he doesn't have the rights a GM normally would. In the press conference, Banner and company were saying that it would be a collective decision when it came to final say on things.

As of right now, I'm not happy at all with this hiring. But I'll give him a chance. I won't judge him until free agency and the draft is over.


Well the good news is once this doesn't work, because it never does, you guys can be in the same group with the rest of the NFL who only has 1 guy make the decision, instead of 2-3 guys who don't know what to do at all.

Minnesota ran the "Triangle of Authority" with Brad Childres, the BRZ and Rick Spielman. We had a few nice 1st and 2nd round draft picks, but after that it was all trash. We also overpayed for some really bad Free Agents.

So, we got a few guys, but we were so far behind the ball that it didn't really matter.

I feel bad for you guys...kinda

The trophy is named after Vince Lombardi and they're not related AFAIK
I'm pretty sure he was joking, there was a thread in NFL Gen about the mid 90s Browns, one poster thought that Lombardi was referencing Vince, instead of Michael ... we all had a good laugh.

Tommie... Laughing

Is it funnier if you are the 5th person to say that?

Hopefully the guy can pull together good enough players for the coaching staff.
