I think Obie made a two good moves in the off-season (getting Chris Thompson in the Brock Ralph deal, and trading on draft day for Markeith Knowlton). But the reason Mitchell signed Obie as GM was to improve the talent of our import starters. IMO Obie has failed in that regard. Think about it. These are the only notable "new" guys (guys new to the CFL) he brought in that have started games in 2008:
-Eddie Cohen and Scott Mitchell
Obie's only good signing has been Prechae Rodriquez, IMO. None of the other "new talent" import guys Obie has brought in have made any real impact. Most import players playing key positions were already on the team last year, before Obie arrived. And we all remember how much that team stunk.
Obie, this city had high expectations for you when you arrived, and you have not delivered. Why?
