Can someone educate me on how fast a good GM and coach should take to turn around a team? One season? Two? Three? What did we see with Belichick and his GM in New England? With Ozzie in Baltimore? With whoever runs things in Green Bay and San Francisco? What should we expect?
With a GM, I have a hard time with a three-year leash. I think it's a longer process than that if you allow any room for error, and errors are going to happen. No one drafts perfectly.
With a coach, it seems like you should see improvement by the second year or definitely the third.
With a quarterback, you expect a veteran to come in and do well immediately.
That's my thinking. Apparently most of you think the timeline for a GM should be shorter than three years, and that the time line for a coach should be shorter than two seasons. If so, what is the timeline?
