    I can only say LMAO.

    Some of that you could also attribute to a good scouting department under Scott Studwell.
    I agree on that.
    From what I've read Foley was clueless on draft day 2006.

    Links please.
    That's not what I remember at all.
    He got grudging respect for running the draft but none at all for being a jerk.

    You can't have it. Because no one knows what happened in that warroom on draft day. It's a speculation, and a feeling about how things work.

    My speculation is that with good scouts you are able to identify the right talents that you want to bring in to your team. Then how you get them on that day, where they are picked, and how the whole draft is run is something else.

    My feeling is that this year things went well all the way, when however last year something went wrong, even if we still brought in good players with recognizable talent.

    Bash me all you want for my speculations, but thats how I feel.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    I wasn't bashing you!
    I was asking SKOL to back up the "Foley was clueless on draft day" comment.
    There's a reason that Scott Studwell survived the end of the Tice era - because he's good at what he does.

    But Foley was running that draft room - that was his job.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!
