Hall of Fame
I seem to remember BOB taking over a 2-14 team that got the #1 pick in the draft and RS figured out a way to screw that draft up. That's unless you believe that BOB was making those picks as a rookie HC with no experience in the NFL. (I dont)Gary Kubiak was tasked with a complete rebuild. He took the worst team in football and made them relevant. Bill OBrien is just reaping the rewards of all the hard work Kubiak and Rick Smith put in and has rode their coat tails while running off the best talent from that regime in an insecurity purge. Still he hasnt managed one AFC CG appearance while every other AFC South team has. OBrien has mortgaged the immediate draft future on a flag machine left tackle. He has burned 3rd round picks on a RB he doesnt utilize and on a project CB that is beyond repair. Trying to compare the talent evaluation between Rick Smith and Bill OBrien is laughable.
If people really did their homework they would look up the stats on hit/miss rates among all the different draft slots and see where Rick Smith ranks in that regard - they would feel silly.
Draftniks here just get their panties in a bunch when the GM cant seem to hit on 4th round or later guys or even funnier that they GM doesnt select the player that they "scouted".
