Look, I get what you're saying on the second point. I am not saying we know we have outstanding scouts. I am saying we don't know what we have because we had a leader who was making terrible decisions with the information he got. There is a ton of proof that ***** made a lot of terrible decisions that had nothing to do with getting bad information. There is little proof of knowing whether it was ***** making bad decisions with bad information, or making bad decisions with good information. I think the scouts deserve at least some benefit of the doubt that it was maybe the latter, given what we know about *****.
I'm fine with giving them the benefit of the doubt and the opportunity for a fair and thorough evaluation by a competent NFL man in Reid.
But I'm fairly confident in saying that everything about the fundamental organization of the franchise, from upper-management to the scouting network, under Pioli was about as ****ed up as it could be.
I highly doubt that man successfully hits the toilet on most days. Thus, since epic failure assembled our scouts and they were hand-picked by him, I'm equally confident in saying that they probably need to be flushed.
It's just really hard to understate how badly Pioli executed his job.
