Now if you say that makes Smith little more than a figurehead who does contracts and tries to make some draft day trades. No argument from me.
Edit: as for the rest of your post, that just shows we ARE rebuilding. I don't disagree with that either.
I think one of the things that has been frustrating for fans is that we have not known for sure who is responsible. My understanding is that Kubiak had final say of player decisions, but did he merely use that as veto power or did he tell Smith what to do more than not.
