Why do so many fail to realize that our drafting stunk under McCombs, with little to no funding of an actual scouting department, but that we've actually done pretty well since Childress and Spielman took over (ie. the first draft with a full staff for a full year to prepare...)
Excellent points My Sexy Little Pixie.
I would also like to add another if I may.
Another wild card in all of this is how well the HC and the VP of Player Personnel communicate with each other.
If those two (Chiller articulating what type he needs/VP of Player Personnel doesn't understand) don't do thier jobs then the draft success will/would go down significantly.
Sure, the budget hurt Scott in his endevours to find the right talent, but I don't think he had a clue what Tice wanted because of the poor communications between that staffs FO and Coaching staff.
WTF has this guy got against Studwell and Co.
I don't think he has anything against Scott.
He actually (even though he leaves the thought up to you to decide) gives Scott props IMHO.
