Gettleman switches scouting services

This won't make a huge difference except in making G-man more comfortable.  It's like he's going from Windows to Mac. 

 

I would bet that if you take 10 random draft picks and look at the reports from each of them they'll be very similar.  With Gettleman history with BLESTRO he can probably pick up the phone and talk to any scout they have directly.  He's got a history with them and that's more important then the service they're providing comparable to National.  

 

I wouldn't be surprised if Gettleman talked to some of those guys last year.  It was just too last to really switch.

Would feel better if we had the same scouts as seattle. They are obviously way ahead of us and those other garbage teams in talent evaluation,

4 Superbowls in the past 8 years.  For it to be a small group, they sure are dominating the Super Bowl hunt.

Yeah, that's not exactly an exciting bunch to be with.

Looks like a good move on the surface. However, like so many other moves in the NFL, we will have to wait four or five years to see if this gleans some real results, especially for our later round picks. I'd like to stop cutting every single 7th rounder we pick...

Why does Gettleman need BLESTO when he already has the best scouts in the world here on the huddle?

In Gettleman I trust and given his background with BLESTO I'm surprised this didn't happen sooner.

“Their philosophy was the way I was raised,” Gettleman said Monday. “Height, weight, speed are important, but not the end-all, be-all. It truly was about evaluating the guy as a potential prospect and player.”

BLESTO was founded in the 1960s and is an acronym for “Bears, Lions, Eagles and Steelers Talent Organization.” The Bears and Eagles have since left BLESTO, which now is comprised of eight teams: Carolina, Pittsburgh, Buffalo, Jacksonville, Washington, Detroit, Minnesota and the New York Giants.

Pittsburgh? And jacksonville is under new leadership now, so jury's still out on them. And Washington is known to actually have a good personnel department.. They just have idiots making the decisions lol.
