Next week we'll be reading: the club has signed INT RB Nobody Special and INT REC Nobody Who Will Last a Week and the club released INTs DL Ethan Farmer, RB B.J. Catalon, REC Spencer Davis.

The revolving door continues....

Nothing wrong with that.

 

 

Except that it shows how utterly pathetic our scouting and GM are.

So some people are thinking that it's a bad thing to bring in people, give them a look, and if they aren't what we're looking for, release them and move on?  Personally, I like the approach because at the very least it gives us a jump on TC next year.  Hopefully, we'll find some players that we want to invite back next year and we'll avoid ones that we've already seen and found wanting.   And who knows we might even find a keeper or two in the meantime.

Next week we'll be reading: the club has signed INT RB Nobody Special and INT REC Nobody Who Will Last a Week and the club released INTs DL Ethan Farmer, RB B.J. Catalon, REC Spencer Davis.

The revolving door continues....

Nothing wrong with that.

 

 

Except that it shows how utterly pathetic our scouting and GM are.

 

Actually quite the opposite.....because they're constantly working to upgrade, and not just sitting on "Ehhh, good enough....."

The opposite...means they are going to keep looking and trying until they find what they want. You really think you can pick the best player first time every time?

Really? How many of these revolving door guys is on the roster right now? It is one thing to continue to bring in people but if it not producing anything of note then, well ... I would totally agree with you if there was evidence that it was producing results but like the rest of what this regime is doing there just isn't any evidence to back up all this faith people have in them. This is a 5-11 team that is only in the hunt for a play-off spot because there are equally crappy teams losing around them.

No prob whatsoever with bringing players in for a looksee, no matter what time in the season. Cal Murphy did that all the time and unearthed quite a few gems (I believe Greg Battle arrived that way). What is the harm? Seriously?

 

There is no problem with it if it producing results. It is not and therefore those responsible should be up for review before continuing their employment. Why pay people for not fulfilling their job duties?
