We can watch highlight films all we want and evaluate guys, but the fact is that we simply don't have the resources, time or knowledge to scout players the way that the pros do. This is their job...not a hobby or a time killer. I can look up youtube tutorials on how to rebuild my engine, but when it comes down to it, I want someone that gets paid for the job and practices it professionally every day.
The only positive I'd give the BB over Scouts/Gm/Owner/HC would be that our only concern is making the team better.

We (minus the true fans) don't worry over contract size or bonus money. We want a winner.

I'd argue our "opinions" are more objective than the team's...

Denver rookie QB John Elway, on Jack Lambert, after Lambert and the Steelers knocked Elway out of his first game as a pro (1983).
