On the flip side, we have several good players that have excelled under the same tutelage.

There is a lot more that goes on before that. Since chilly picked him up.... how does that mean that he was the one that started the process on Favre. That simply means he picked him up.
As for Harvin, I never argued that Chilly didn't have say and input. I simply said that the ranking and grading of players in their positions were done by Speilman. which means he is at fault for selecting a bunch of 5th round Cbs in the 2nd and 3rd rounds. His draft boards... his draft. I also give him all the credit for finding Robison and Griffen in the 4th. However, you can't have it both ways. You can't credit him with great finds and then blame coaches for bust.

On the whole draft board and ranking thing, do you really believe it is Rick that puts that together by himself? I highly doubt that Rick goes out and evaluates every player and then puts his board together without a lot of input from the scouts and coaches who spend the majority of their time evaluating these players. Rick is the guy that pulls the trigger on draft day and helps coordinate the talent evaluators, but there is a lot of coordination building up to that point.
Starting with the coaching staff telling the talent evaluators (under Spielman) the type of players they are looking for to play in their systems.

I disagree about our OL totally; I think the bad play we saw last year had more to do with them being unwilling to risk hurt or injury for an idiot QB who was just as likely to throw the ball away or to the other team as one of our receivers. I was a center when I was younger, and let me tell you... that is completely demoralizing. Even if you do your job to perfection, you still might be chasing some CB down the field to prevent the other team from scoring a TD.
We won a few games last year we should not have, in my opinion. To me, that says the team was better than I thought it was, especially under Cassel's leadership. But then, I am an optimist.Men are moved by two levers only: fear and self interest.
