    In what way is Kyle Smith GM material

    Unless something has changed, Kyle Smith is not the FA guy at all, he's mostly "just" college scouting (although I'm sure they use their in-house xollege scouting reports for long-term context on younger FAs that Kyle evaluated as prospects). I'd really like to see the roster Kyle would build with final say over both college and pro personnel, though. Our FA work in his time here has been scattershot at best, and I think he could do a better job given the chance.

    It's about to be 2020. I can't justify hiring a coach who feels that way about analytics, period. I think that's at the root of Tepper's issue with him as well, if you read between the lines of his new mission statement for the franchise.

    Healthier Cam/CMC/Moore/Samuel/Ian Thomas would be deadly.

    Greg Roman imo. Especially if Cam isn't washed, physically.

    I don't think this is remotely true. Tepper is a smart guy and was a minority owner of the Steelers for a while, so he's seen how a properly run legacy franchise operates. He's not the meddling type, sometimes you just need a fresh start after 9 years, especially when you're instituting a new vision from the top down as a new owner. Rivera is a good coach and by all accounts a great man. That doesn't mean a fresh start is automatically a bad idea--look at Philly post-Reid, despite some missteps before their SB and despite a poor season this year, I'd say fans overall are happy with the direction of their franchise now, despite Reid being one of the best coaches in the league. I think this is a Skins fan understandably projecting our experience with newer ownership onto another situation. But I don't think it applies.

    It doesn't matter how this season ends--if Allen/Callahan is the combo they try to sell to this apathetic fanbase this offseason, they are going to be astounded to discover the further depths that attendance and local attention can still sink to.

    Reasonable people can certainly disagree on whether firing Rivera is the right move. But I'm crediting Tepper for having (and communicating to the fans of the team that he owns) such a clear and well-stated goal for the direction of his franchise. And that's not even getting into the actual merit of that stated direction--and I think it has tons.

    Not sure what you're getting at. Continuity is only good when the thing you're keeping is good. How long exactly is the leash of your patience?

    Look at how Tepper is communicating his intentions to the fanbase. You guys foresee anything like that from Snyder? Nah

    No thanks. Russ has been overcoming asinine playcalling for years and not much has really changed with Shotty Jr., who has had plenty of bad stops along the way in his own career where he didn't have Russel Wilson. He's fine, but he's not doing anything innovative. In fact the Seahawks are one of the least analytics-savvy/fluent teams in the league and imo without Russ carrying it all on his shoulders since the demise of that SB defense, they'd be...not good.
  13. The height of disingenuity. Like saying "you say you're tolerant but you aren't tolerant of intolerant people, explain that huh?!"
  14. Telling people they should probably root for a different team if they want losses and liking other people's posts about who the "real" fans are in this thread is not respectful, and is absolutely attempting to police fanhood. Keep it to yourself. Hope this helps.
  15. Drop it. Every week with this ****. No one who is here on ES in 2019 needs to hear you trying to put a value on their fanhood. Some are rooting with long-term interests in mind rather than just this week. And it's fine. Stop policing peoples' fanhood and rooting interests.
