In response to TexasPat's comment:
RESPONSE: Cherry picking??? I've stated facts, while you rely on emotion. Again...I credit BB "THE COACH" for those successes, along with his great fortune in having Tom Brady as his QB. The poor personnel decisions of BB "THE GM" has made the job of Brady and his coach much harder.
RESPONSE: Our team is 5-1 despite the failings of BB "THE GM" this offseason...one of his worst offseason performances ever. Credit a dogged Tom Brady and the great BB "THE COACH" for making lemonaid out of lemons.
Truechamp compiled a quick list on another thread of draftees and free agents of this GM, I'll just cut and paste his:
Brady, Gronk, Ridley, Vareen, Mankins, Vollmer, Solder, Mayo, Talib, Wilfork, DMC, Dennard, Nink, Hightower, Spikes, Arrington, Tommy Kelly, Chandler Jones, Steve Gregory along with the rookies Harmon, Jones, Collins who will finish this season out for us just to name a few...
Proving once again that you are what you're record says you are and that there is no cure for stupid.
Agree but if we are truly assessing a GM, then you have to do so without having coaching criteria mixed in. Simply look at draft success, FA success, cap management, dead money, player retention, player production to a degree.
Those picks you pasted are all great pieces of a winning team. If you line up that list to babes, what's the hit to miss ratio? Gut looks like just north of 55%-60%. Probably better than most gm's.
i would argue its not just the hits and misses, but the production of the player chosen. His hits have mostly produced big time. Not average starters , but in the tops at their respective positions.
