    I just found out about this site(it's been around since 2003) and I'm like a kid in the candy store. Lots of information/stats there.

    Polian is one of the best GM's ever. Ozzie Newsome has been a pretty good GM so far in Baltimore. It's a good read even though he did call Casserly a wise man, which he is but putting together a team is not one of his strong points. It shows how much work a GM does in a given week.

    How sad do you find it that some football employees spend their entire lives dedicating themselves to the game, and they still are worse than some of the armchair GMs here on the boards.

    :rolleyes:

    What I find sad is that some of these armchair GMs are ignorant enough to actually believe that.

    Matt Millen
    Charley Casserly

    These are 2 great examples of what you are taling about.

    The flip side is Millen & Casserly made Ford & McNair alot of money during their tenures. Even though it would be hard to field worse teams.
