Have we had a "Director of Pro Personnel" in the past?

The team was 2-14 for a reason.

No depth at CB/LB/DL was a big reason.

Rick didn't like that Wade played the starters too much. But with no depth he had little choice.

Is that Rick or Wade's fault? Probably a combination of both.

Your wish is granted.

Looks like it will be a regular feature, the Texans were first because we are the worst.

This chart kinda shows what Gaine and crew have to work with

That's really cool, man. Thanks for posting it.

Just curious to the general forum, why isn't Duane Brown considered elite? He's often referred to as one of the best LTs in the league.

That caught my eye as well. I figured it was because Duane had a down season because of the turf toe gig he was dealing with and according to Doc, that's pretty tough to shake. I HOPE he's back to the ol' #76 next season.







And so does Theodore.

Mine as well. This is why we should consider a OT with a high pick. He can start at RT and if Brown continues this decline can become his eventual replacement. I would not be surprised to see two OTs taken in this draft. Our OL and defensive front seven should dominate this draft.

Brown was hampered by an injury.

I'd rather Blaine Gabbert be my Director of Pro Personnel than my starting QB.

Yes, injury hurt DB's performance in 2013 as he rated 22nd/76 OTs overall (>25% team snaps).

He was rated 5th in 2011 and 2nd in 2012. Browns second half of 2013 was much better than his first, and he only had two poor games -- one being awful vs. SD week 1.

Brown spent most of his time covering for Wade Smith's bad play. Then suffered turf toe and Brown still wasn't terrible.

An average Foster or an average running back?

Interesting side not the Atlanta Falcons hired Pioli as Assistant GM of the Falcons on January 22, 2014. He is reuniting with current GM Thomas Dimitroff after previously working together for years in the Patriots organization.

Anyways see Gaine as still young with a bright future from something near & dear to my heat, actually being scout, it all comes down to player evaluation. Rick is so smooth in his delivery, has had his share of hits & probably gets a pass since he was just doing Gary's bidding but Brian Gaine has an excellent opportunity to move higher if powers that be decide its time to cut completely fresh & start a new slate. Politics won't save anyone on this side of the business only results.
