Where do you rank the GMs?
John Hufnagel: Pretty easy choice. Great stockpile of players, especially QBs. Developed and implemented a QB succession plan. No drama. And has developed a coaching succession plan. Head and shoulders the best.
Wally Buono: Its easy to criticize him but he is in the midst of recreating the Lions for the 4th time. He doesn't go to cast offs and has a steady hand.
Kent Austin: Early yet but he certainly has a vision and knows how to get there. And he keeps his right hand man Tillman hidden from sight.
Kyle Walters: Maybe too high for now but he has rebuilt the culture of the Bombers. Seems very hardworking and has made some great moves.
Jim Barker: gets a lot of criticism as a poacher. But unfounded. Somehow has kept that team rolling.
Ed Hervey: Getting over his anger issues maybe. Weird media relations but has seemingly worked well with his coach. Certainly the team is better.
Brendan Taman: Hard to judge him. Keeps making short term trades. Tied his wagon to Cory Chamblin who I think is a lunatic.
Jim Popp: Just a horrendous past 3-4 years. Hawkins hire, refusal to step down as coach creating delay, distraction and drama. The 3D GM. Foolish hype signings in Chad Johnson, Sam. Now getting credit for signing CFL cast offs. Most overrated GM in CFL.
Pierre Dejardins: So far, not so good. Big mistake was pissing off Glenn. Huge mistake.
