It's time that McNair brings in one of these "football guys" (like Polian or Parcells) that we hear about to take over personnel duties. If it means that Rick Smith has to go, so be it. McNair needs to put a system in place where the head coach works under the GM. From what I've gathered, we don't have that here. There are very few head coaches that can "get their own groceries" and still be effective at gametime. In hindsight, it wasn't a good idea to give a rookie head coach the kind of control that Kubes has here. The only guys that deserve that kind of responsibility are guys that have Super Bowl rings as head coaches.
