A moment of appreciation for Scott Fitterer… we have a GM

Well see how the picks work out but the strategy if nothing else appears sound. I'm ok with trying something new. Lord knows we failed plenty doing it the old way. 

I second this. 

It's refreshing to see that the focus is on building a foundation of promising young talent to build on going forward.  If they can keep that up in another season or two this team is going to be a tough out in the playoffs, every year.  That is the team I'm looking for.

So if Rhule can salvage the Ghost Rider we may not be as far away from competing as I thought.

What's that? A glimmer of hope? I do believe my giddy may be starting to get up.

Ah yea the draft super bowl thread, we are undefeated, had one for Hurney 2.0 and Gettle too.

We really don’t know and won’t know what Fitt is all about for a couple years.

The fancy trades and moves don’t impress me. Building a team and a healthy cap does. So we shall see.

I like the BYU pick personally. They have a fantastic oline program.

The whole premise of trading down is just an acknowledgment of the impossibility of getting it all right, a softening of ego - which is a good thing in any endeavor. Understanding that your abilities to see clearly are flawed/incomplete and therefore require a compensatory effect. (getting more picks in this case)

It has been proven repeatedly that talent evaluation is more art than science, and there's plenty of room for interpretation and error. With that understanding, you mitigate your risk - you "anti-Hurney".

I love our new GM already!

Its almost like we had a plan and executed it as well. 

David Tepper, always, has a plan.

He has put a model/framework in place and properly staffed it with smart guys...and even more importantly, has made certain everyone knows their role and how they are expected to operate within the prescribed system.

Being the smartest, and the wealthiest, is a lethal combination as it goes to being an NFL owner!

Good times are on the way...

Draft strategy was sound and we added some good, athletic players. I'll judge the draft haul itself sometime in the future, but my excitement for the season is higher than I expected given the passing on Fields.  I understand CB was a massive need and Horn is a great prospect, I just was a bit of a Fields homer the last couple years. 

These guys know more than I do so hopefully Darnold balls out.  I think he is given every chance to now... the weapons we will have around him... wow.
