BT deserved to get juiced............plain and simple. Depop has the inside track on lots of information. And I can see how BT was convinced by CC to stay with vets and make some moves.
But the Emry trade.............losing Foley and adandoning our depth as National at DE was bad...........but especially bad when they decided we are now National at Mac but we don't have a competent National backup...........but don't worry cause Emry is a stud. We learned last year when DD went down when you don't have a plan B. We had a plan B at Mac in Sam Hurl but they let him go! Sam had a good opportunity to start elsewhere and you will have a hard time retaining those guys.........but they had no plan B.
They also traded for damaged goods. Essentially we gave Foley away. Our young LB'ers really need a helper coach out there! Knowx and Doughty are learning all on their own now.
We'll take Watman over Jones???????????? I remember CC saying I like Watman cause he swore in the meetings????? That is great...........but 3rd yr in and he is not starting? That was a 1st rounder. First rounders' need to be on roster day 1 just like Nic Demski. Yes BT made some positive moves but there are plenty of bad ones to make things even out. And when it evens out you end up at 0-9.
I predict Taman won't see a GM job for 3-4 yrs at least. He'll be scouting somewhere?
The Foley deal everyone thought wow, we got younger, great Mac.........but I said right away who will replace him Emry if he goes down. We likely never see Shea play again.
BT did not need a lot of push from CC about vets because he himself is a vet guy. BT has not built a team organically ever. He's chased FA's and traded away draft choices to do it. He has never built a sustainable quality football team. He has built contenders but the next year those teams have fallen from grace. The Stamps are showing that it can be done.
