    Wait a minute...wait a minute...what exactly has Emery done so far? Has he put together a team that can beat the Packers? Did he hoist that SB trophy last year? The jury is still out on his philosophy and vision on how to build a championship team. In fact, as it stands, last year's draft class looks like an absolute bust at this point.

    This dude is getting way too much praise for having done virtually nothing at this point. Shoot last year's team that just missed the playoffs was doing it with practically all ANGELO players. We'll see how things go this year with his guys from last year's draft class and this year's draft class. But as it stands Emery hasn't done better than our previous GM nor has his philosophy been shown to be the wave of the future or even a good one for our franchise.

    And the guy also looks like a pedophile.

    Good post. I agree with the thinking along these lines...

    However...

    This comment is out of place on these forums. Keep it within the appropriate arena.

    This has to be voted as one of the dumbest post of the year so far. Emery has been the GM for a little over a year. Damn it takes more the a couple of years to undo all the mistakes Amgelo made over 9 years of trying to be someone he isn't.

    So you think that trying to build a good Offense to go along with a good Defense isn't a good philosophy. So Angelos and Lovies philosophy of building a good Defense while giving the Offense and our QB nothing to work with is the way to go. We were the only team in the NFL that though that our Defense should be the part of the team that scores the points. Yea Angelos philosophy was so great that as of right now we only have four starters on Offense left from his days and not one person as come out and stated that any of our loses on the Offense side of the ball was a major lose to the Bears.

    If Angelo is such a great GM then why hasn't any team even interviewed him to be there new GM, I'll tell you why he sucked at being a GM. A GMs job is to make every effort to put together a winning team, not just a good Defense and ST but a good Offense to go along with them and that is just what Emery is trying to do. Will it happen this year maybe, maybe not but this year at least we are for the first time in years trying to build a team and not just a part of a team.

    As has already been said, what he has done is changed the status quo....and for most fans that is a huge leap forward even if he only hits on 50% of his moves.

    And honestly, if you are a pessimist, then I'm just wasting my time. I'm not a pessimist, I'm an optimist leaning realist. You, me and every other fan can't say with any certainty what Emery has done effectively. We've all seen too many one hit wonders, slow developing players, and steady eddie's to believe measurement is something that can be done in a year and a half.

    So, what he has done is simple. He brought a new methodology, a new outlook and a new set of standards (on all fronts). If you were happy with Angelo, more power too you, but you are gonna have problems with anyone if that is the case. If you weren't happy with Angelo, then you have to recognize that change can't be measured in a year and a half.

    I thought the Jets interviewed him???

    With that being said Angelo STUNK as a GM and shouldn't have been given 9 years to drive our Offense into the ground. Remember he destroyed the O-Line, our #1 WR was ROY "Freakin" Williams!, he had to trade for a good QB etc. He made so many dumb moves e.g. reached for Chris Williams etc.

    JJ-30 you have several posts in the running for dumbest post of the year...


    I think what both of you guys don't realize is that it is quite ridiculous for anyone to be writing any kind of articles celebrating Emery as if anything has even been accomplished by him. He has accomplished nothing. His first draft was a joke. We'll see if his 2nd provides some help right away. How about people write articles about successful GMs. I can accept articles being written about the success of GM's like the ones that GB have had as an example...

    Loki my apologies. Didn't know that comment was out of bounds.

    Question how long has the GB GM been there and how long has Emery been here. As for last years draft, if you look at Emerys draft this year and then go back and look at last years draft you can see clearly the Lovie had a great deal of input into last years draft. If you say Emery shouldn't have listen to Lovie your 100% right and since Every fired Lovie I am guessing he agrees with this.

    As far as dumb posting go I will give that win to you, you have the lead over most of the other post by a wide margin.

    Let's try and keep the personal attacks in the proper area.

    If nobody attacks anyone's postings, nobody will feel the need to defend themselves or fight back. FAMILY FRIENDLY please.

    It's way too early to be passing much judgment on Emery. Even too early for his first draft which I admit, Lovie influenced or not, doesn't look all that great right now especially outside of Jeffery. I think he has made some great (Marshall) and promising (Bushrod, MartyB) moves in the vet market along with a few clunkers (Campbell, Ellis, Rachal) that every GM has when sifting through other teams' rejects.

    I do give Emery a ton of credit for one thing though: he has recognized and attacked the key holes and problems the prior regime either dismissed, de-prioritized, or simply was in denial of. Like the receiving corps, OL, and pathetic O-coaching staff. At least he saw and took on the issues JA had no clue how to handle.
