I don't know the ins-and-outs of this particular issue raised by GB, but I appreciated the point it makes regardless.

It's this sort of obscure but absolutely essential (ie, make or break) detail that none of us are tasked with understanding or really privy to.

And there are dozens more just like it.

It's why I have no confidence in anyone around here who takes themselves very seriously when they play Armchair-GM after the draft or a trade or a signing or whatever... to me it doesn't matter whether they are zealously critical of the new front office or zealously supporting it.

I zealously support those who admit that we as fans don't have all of the detailed information that goes into running a franchise. It's not that they are smarter than us... it's not a bash on fans not being capable of doing a better job. It's that as outsiders, we don't have a full picture of the details that any GM (good or bad) has when they conduct their business each day.

I suspect that Chris Meck's outstanding post, which took months to develop and quite a while to just type... and probably completely foreign to most of the posters (like me) on this board until its all but spoon fed like this by a more sophisticated football fan...

... is so well understood by the coaches and GM that it almost goes without saying. It's assumed information. They are operating on a level so much higher (granularity of information) that we all just look silly to them when we try our darndest to discuss their jobs.

Good thread, jAZ. Lots of good points. And even if the articles Vailpass posted weren't really on point, they were interesting too.
