I want to be optimistic about the new regime, but Rick Smith does not give me the confidence to have much faith in his skills as a GM.
That's just it, though.
Who is it that made these draft picks?
Did Rick Smith come up with a list of guys and Kubiak and the other coaches say, "No. Here's the guys we should go with."? Was Rick Smith's list of guys he would have drafted better than the guys we actually drafted?
I don't know.
The guy who should know is McNair.
I hope he's keeping Smith around because he's been in the draft rooms and knows that Smith would have done better without Kubiak and the other coaches over-ruling him. Or something.
