While he is obviously not Jeff Ireland, he's been here for what transpired during the Jeff Ireland era. So if 7-9, 6-10, 7-9 and 8-8 wasn't good enough to keep one guy employed why is it good enough to promote another?
That's a pretty ridiculous way of looking at it.
I won't judge anybody unless they have former GM experience to judge them on. Otherwise it's all just speculation.
Farmar coming from Cleveland doesn't matter. Nor does Gaine being in-house. We have no idea how good these guys are at evaluating talent, developing and executing a vision for a 53 man roster, and managing day-to-day organizational situations.
