I tend to favor college scouting guys over pro personnel guys, but yeah, he'd have a shot as well.

I agree with you on this. Dave Gettleman seems like he can be a good prospect but being Senior Pro Personnel he doesn't even travel with the scout team anymore. His job duties is to grade scout team practice guys and unrestricted free agents. I kind of want someone who scouts college guys well.

Sounds like a winner but I like my GMs to be from networks... im hiring Michael Lombardi.

Curious real question... Will the next GM get a three year pass or will the huddle want to fire.com him after halftime of Game1 of preseason?

I want a great talent evaluator either way. Someone who would bring in a successful OC for coach would also be ideal. I'm tired of being behind the rest of the league schematically. We need some legit coaching that our guys will respect.

The only way to get that coaching is to bring guys in with strong personalities.

That's the short version. Click to get the expanded version and you'll find he started in the league as a college scout and continued in that capacity for 13 years or so. He's worked at both levels. No indication he's worked with the cap though (outside shot he brings Kevin Abrams with him).

Might take some effort to dig up more. Cursory web search on him didn't produce much outside his team bio.

Definitely worth a look, but with the source being Florio, also worth a grain of salt.

the more i think about it, the more i want us to bring in a personnel guy and a cap guy. of course i don't have to pay for two people to do what should be one man's job, either.

one thing is clear to me...if jerry wants this team to be a winner and to get him a lombardi before he dies, he's gonna have to open up that check book. that means hiring two people that are great at their job rather than one guy who is good (hopefully) at both.

that also applies to the HC job. gonna have to spend to get someone we can trust to get things turned around.

I'd agree. And I'd also look at replacing some of the entrenched people.
