Sounds like a good hire.

 

Now if he's the Assistant Director, then who is the Director?

Excellent!

Anybody still missing the 17 scrub scouts that got dumped? I'm pretty sure this FO will have that more than covered before too long. :)

it could be the guy from KC we heard about yesterday but hasn't been announced yet. That is his title there.

Can't really say I know much of anything about him but it seems like it could be a good hire...

That is what I was thinking/hoping too. I was glad when I seen this guy was just the asst. Gave me hope Allen is still coming here.

Obviously none of us know much on these guys but I like that we are getting experienced people from a variety of backgrounds and not just raiding a single "gm tree" and giving big bumps to everyone in it.

Might be a product of the timing and not being able to raid a staff but after getting McD and Beane I do like getting a variety of perspectives and experience in the room instead of the possible groupthink of getting the young panthers club or all Andy Reid guys

That's my guess. Marvin Allen.

This is a great point and I was thinking the same. There are obvious connections but it seems to be a broad net being cast.

I can still hear the cries -- where oh where will we ever find scouts!  All the good ones are gone!  Why did they wait to fire everyone!
