Rick Smith the 16th best GM

16. Rick Smith - Texans

Smith has done it all as a general manager. There have been bad picks (Amobi Okoye) and brilliant ones (J.J. Watt)....

2-14,

I've always said the Slick/Gary regime was an 8-8 team. So I can see 16th.

Cant win a SB with 8-8 so I would call Slick lower than 16th. However if you count the $$$$ he has made Boardroom BoBBy then he ranks much higher than 16th and isn't that what the NFL is really all about these days?

Didn't the Giants do it twice? & the Packers did it once.

2008 NY Giants were 10-6 in the regular season before winning the Super Bowl.

2010 Green Bay Packers were 10-6 in the regular season before winning the Super Bowl.

2011 NY Giants were 9-7 in the regular season before winning the Super Bowl.

While not exactly 8-8, I think you get the point.

On top of that, the Giants - And Eli Manning especially - have been horrible outside of their SB winning seasons.

My God, Eli had a worse season last year than Matt Schaub if that is possible.

I have to take these types of classifications, especially those that have no hard fast measurables/calculations presented that substantiate the ranking, with a grain of salt.

Not throwing massive dollars out on first day of free agency is a plus. :cow:

I Actually agree with his take that Rick smith is JAGM, but yes there is no real objective number outside of wins/loses/playoffs that one can really use in any manner.

Well you are what your rankings say you are...

last I checked, 16 is half of 32, that would make Rick Smith...


MEDIOCRE! Which is fitting because a mediocre GM puts together mediocre teams....Does enough to keep his job, but not enough to make the Texans a true SB contender...

Wishy washy GM for a wishy washy team.

Smith was rated the 9th best GM for the Eagles: Bryan Braman. Connor Barwin, DeMeco Ryans, James Casey, Donnie Jones, Jeff Maehl and Roc Carmichael.

My hope is that he is young and getting better. That doesn't justify getting him when we did, but things could work out.
