but on another level... I'm really tired of couch potato GM's thinking they can do the job any better. Charger's A.J. Smmith is taking alot of heat for all his moves, the apparent rift with Coach, and the latest, putting Edwards up on the block for trading.
A GM's job is to remove himself from emotion and look at what the team's best interests are now AND in the future. Granted, Edwards was very popular, but everyone can see he is declining and to give him an elite salary is ludicrous...baseball, one thing, where a 40 year old pitcher can still be successful. Football, different story.
He claims that his stats speak for themselves, but I don't care if you tackle 100 times in a game if they are all after big gainers who cares! Richard, we need to do one of those fancy stats that measures the worth of tackle and gives weight to tackles for losses or tackles for short gains, or heck tackles that stop first downs on third and fourth down situations, that woudl be sweet.
Long story short, Edwards, quit crying, its part of the game, look at Seau, he sucks in Miami, lets not fall into the trap with the Padres of overpaying has been talent, unless you are a destined Hall of Famer.
