Default 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)....

Patrick Daugherty from rotoworld ranks all 32 NFL GMs.

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?

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.

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...

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