The last few times, we got excited over a big name hire, ended up contributing to the final nails in the coffin of the Andy Reid era.

Hiring proven personnel people is a bit different, but I understand your point. I've felt that Howie needed some more football people in the personnel group, so this satiates that need...and then some.

Any relation to Harry Gamble?

I was speaking of Washburn, Mudd, April, Jauron etc...

I get the excitement, but I'm going to temper mine and stay neutral.

I know, which is why I specified "personnel." We're on the same page. Cautious optimism is always recommended with this organization.

As Geoff Mosher tweeted: Gamble scouted college for Niners past 3 years. In those 3 years they've drafted Kaepernick, Ald. Smith, Iupati, Bowman, Anthony Davis.

That's better than we've done smile.gif

It's beginning to look like that article claiming Howie was a Machiavellian prick was a Rat Man plant. If Gamble is as good as a lot of people are saying he could be this is coming at a perfect time with the fourth overall pick. The team has a lot of holes and good decisions are really important.

I'm feeling pretty good about the remake of this organization. From Kelly, both of his coordinators, his assistants and now Gamble there's quite a bit of positive non-Philadelphia comments in the press.

This could be fun. I'm excited to see how things develop.
