Gettleman switches scouting services

Recommended Posts

I don't have enough info yet to give Gettleman my blind faith. This season was more about Hurney's plan coming to fruition. While Gettlemen freed up cap space and still managed to pick up fa that helped us become competitive, I still need to see a lot more to put my faith in him.

As far as the last draft I thought he absolutely nailed the first two picks but after that the draft is still of questionable value especially considering who we passed up.

Considering BLESTO: If BLESTO is such a wonderful agency then why are so few teams involved with them? We have had stellar drafts the last three years so imo there was need for change.

Some people say patronizing BLESTO isn't a big deal. I would counter with; Why are spending a significant amount money to hire them if they have a minimal impact?

Kenjon Barner seems to have been a questionable pick for these reasons:

-6 carries for 7 yards

-Small frame which leads very often to injuries historically speaking.

-We already had a crowded backfield both personnel wise and cap wise.

-fumbled a kickoff in a critical game alluding to an inability to handle high pressure sitiations.

My buddy works for one of the large scouting companies and he said every team utilizes some type of scouting service in addition to their scouts. I don't think it is humanly possible for a dozen or so guys to monitor all the talent out there. I wouldn't read much into Gettlemans comments.

well that's quite a roster of poo.

Agree. And pie to the first person that can use the new 8 teams that use BLESTO and create a new acronym of BLOW JOB.

You're asking us to make a seven letter word out of eight letters? :blink:

Jesus Christ people choosing between these two services isn't going to be the difference between spending sixth round picks on instant all-pros and not.

Surely you of all posters are smart enough to know that most acronyms are more or less letters than the words used to create them. Be more creative, less analytical.

Can you blame them when they have the formula to keep a good team without the scouting reports.  Those reports are basically like the robb report.  You know what you want and like but you just want to see if someone else with no attachments feel the same way.

And the Pat's are one of the teams that do not use either scouting service.

 

Take from that what you will.

Stellar drafts the last three years?

In the first round maybe. Other than that...

I think if you manage to get an all pro caliber player in the draft then you've performed your job well.

There were most likely two in the 2012 draft if you include Nortman. I have little doubt he'll achieve all pro status in the next few years. Alexander is another member of that draft that I have high hopes for post Hardy.

The first thought that crossed my mind as well...
