Shopping? Why do we shop players no one wants or will trade for? The front office has done a piss poor job so far this year.
Yeah, they should just immediately cut players instead of taking their time and doing their due diligence. Why don't you cry a little more.
Do you have any criticism for Dom in any way, shape or form? I would be very curious to hear what you think they've done wrong...if any?
I could criticize him for the following:
1) Not being a voice of reason in the Raheem hire. However, what GM in the league (that's been around for a while) hasn't had to deal with subpar coaching? Does that mean that every GM who has had to fire a coach sucks?
2) Signing Black and Wright to big contracts. However, what GM has not screwed up a free agent signing? You act as if we are the only team ever to have done such a thing.
3) 3 of the last 4 seasons were of the losing variety. 3 seasons with zero money to spend and a crappy coach that ownership pushed for. How is that his fault?
Bottom line is that every GM in the league has to gamble when it comes to the draft and signing free agents. There is no executive in the NFL that is batting a thousand. Those teams that are doing well have stability at the QB position and with the coaching staff and when that happens, it makes the GM look like a genius. Look at New England. Everyone talks about how well the draft, blah, blah, blah...it's all Brady, period. Should the GM get all the credit even though he still makes bad moves from time to time?
Dominik is not a world-beater but he is not a bad GM. I think he learns from his mistakes. He probably has to do some things this season to secure his job, however, this season hasn't even started yet and he's already being crucified for not doing what the fans have wanted him to do, which was to go on a free agent spending spree. Fans like you are impatient which is why you'd rather just have him cut Wright and be done with it.
I applaud the FO for taking a patient approach and no longer attacking the issues in the secondary with half-measures.
Here's the other thing. Why should I criticize the FO when they haven't completed the job of putting the 2013 team together? Why the need to rush to judgement? Why must everything out of your mouth be negative? I think that is a fair question. You also dodged the question when asked what would you have done differently by giving the tired "they never shouldve done this...." crap. What should they have done instead?
