Beane has tears in eyes about the fans 

 

 

You have to be good at your job, but fit/chemistry can be the X factor(s) in making you great at what you do or a company/organization great. Lou Saban was a terrific coach and had excellent results but the fit was never quite right so it was two terms of some great results (AFL titles, OJ's best years) but almost as quickly a crash and burn.

 

Marv Levy had a great relationship with Ralph Wilson and Bill Polian (and John Butler). That was a great fit organizationally and there was staying power.

 

Probably the best example in the NFL in terms of competence and long term fit is the Steelers since they have had 3 coaches in the last 40+ years. 

 

I see the same thing here with McDermott and Beane with the Pegulas and their relationship with the community and their players. It is a good fit and they are good at their jobs. And they approach building the roster by acquiring good players that fit, not just the most talented but first and foremost they have to be able to play. 

 

For decades the Yankees have been the best team money can buy but the years that they have won championships are not necessarily the years they had the best talent.

give the press a damn mic

 

Sadly, thats where the Pats are better. Every question asked by reporter is on the mic

Sticking with Cody at RT

He keeps talking about his versatility, so not necessarily.

Yeah I deleted it - it was a quick take, based on what he said first and then he walked it back a little bit...

I wouldn’t mind re-signing Spain but what do you do with Ford at that point? He’s not good at RT and you can’t justify starting him over Spain or Feliciano. I’m sure he’d stay at RT but he’s likely to be a liability 

You don’t anticipate any growth in his game from his rookie year?

Yep, that’s the one area where they’ve got us.

I like how he talked about keeping the core together and that they wouldn't just change out players with similar skill sets - want upgrades in that regard and that the staffs (FO and coaching) will have very frank discussions

Beane is really excellent - haven't felt this good about a GM since Polian

And Im yet to see any cheating in their press conferences other than BB is a big time douche

Hopefully Sweeney will have a bigger role next year.  He's one of those guys that seems to know how to get open.

Not trading all of our draft picks to get this one guy

Saying all of the right things, but the one comment that sticks out to me is the “deep end of the pool” re FA. Sounds more like they want 2-3 premier players and then fill in around it.
