    Who in the hell is Paul Gunther? On a side note, I am all for Linehan coming back here as OC. At the very least it won't make our offense stale bread boring.

The odds are long against finding that franchise guy the further down the draft you go, but there will end up being franchise QB's in this years draft class. Lets hope the new HC and OC have some say in picking that QB, and Spielman is aggressive in getting him.
    Two of those QB's are at the bottom of the league in contract size allowing them to be surrounded by first tier talent across the roster.

    This year's 4 finalists show two completely different approaches to building a championship ball club. One is to center around a HOF calibre QB and fill in with whatever you can muster and the other is to use rookie contract QB's and surround them with top of the league defenses and strong running games. NE is an imposter IMO. The other 3 are legit.

    I am guessing that Speilman and Zimmer are fighting about full control, this is provably why it is taking so long

    if that turns out to be the case, then good for Spielman. why should he give someone in his first head coaching job full control? I think Zimmer will be good, but does he realize 4 other teams have already passed him up? if he proves to be a great coach, then he can leverage for more control. Speilman has shown in his first two drafts he knows what he is doing.
    It didn't work out too well giving Chilly to much power
    Why must you defend everything this FO does....to the point of making your self look like a yes man.

    I'm not sold on Spielman, yet, but he does know football, and I'm a strong believer in a GM centric system.
    Let the coaches coach and give the GM control over who those coaches will be in addition to who the players will be.
    The owners need to trust their GM choice and resist meddling. The GM needs to trust his coaching choices and resist meddling.
    I think Zimmer is their man, and it is likely the delay is due to them working out contract issues rather than haggling over the power structure.
    I agree with you. Zimmer just needs to be a coach.
    Just found out he is the Vikings new head coach, woot woot !
