There I'm going to disagree with you. So far its a hazy grade and incomplete, but he has gotten great talent on this team. Look at who has has had a part in drafting the last few years, as well as the trades he has worked. He has had flops for sure, but overall, I'd say his influence has been positive, personnel-wise. He has a higher than league average success rate throughout the draft (hard to determine success with only three years to work with, though) in his time here as well. I realize he shares personnel responsibilities with Reid as well, but the kid has not done a bad job by any means, the players just aren't playing well. I think it has more to do with team leadership than player talent.
