    No, I'm not infavor of a GM having complte control. This dude needs to work under Philbin and Aponte. All he needs to be a scout, and an excellent one at that.

    Pfft.... GM's don't work under coaches.
    You might as well not have one if they do.

    What you just described is the mind set that got us to the point of obscurity in the NFL.
    HC's being given too much control over personnel, no GM's or GM's with no power (see Speilman) is what led us to wasting a HOF QB's career, wasting a Championship caliber defense and finally a bottoming out of any talent whatsoever on the roster not so long ago.

    I say no thanks to your theory because I've seen it fail many more times than not.

    Well, I'll TRY to control my excitement, at least.

    Why would you want a respected talent evaluator have a coach making final decisions in talent evals..

    They are crafts that take uniquely different skillsets to achieve expertise in..

    Apparently he was not fired..which is great news you know..his choice to be close to the fam.

    It says on his lil bio that he's a quiet behind the scenes type...I'm fine with that as long as your a bad *** in the film room..and that you bring in some analytics people just to be your devils advocate..

    According to his bio on the Eagles website, he didn't have collegiate scouting responsibility with San Francisco until 2010.

    It would be a humongous win for us if we land Tom Gamble as our GM.

    We don't know that he nailed it though. We don't know what he thought about any of those players.

    This is what makes evaluating hirings of executives and coaches so difficult, because we have the tiniest fraction of information available to us that Stephen Ross and co have. It's why I laugh about people talking about their favorite candidates or guys that they don't want. How the hell can anyone decide whether or not someone would make a good GM when we literally know nothing about the kind of job they've done. Obviously that excludes guys with actual GM experience like Tannenbaum.

    I hit the edit button so I could copy and paste over the stuff I had put in quotations from Caplin and Polian in the post. If you just hit Reply with Quote, you lose those. Of course all you need do is read a bit further down that thread and see people that replied to that post and quoted it, and you'd know that it wasn't edited.

    This is exactly why the term "blue chip" GM prospect is stupid. Hell, when we were searching for a GM after we hired Parcells, Ireland was one of the hottest names out there. He was a "blue chip" prospect. Look how that turned out.
