Again, I don't think he's some sort of savior just because of things he's said during interviews and press conferences, but let's give him a fair shake.
That's why I said I haven't seen any evidence of it. For years it was considered the poorly kept secret that Jerry sucks but Stephen is the answer. Oh how great it will be then. You should be asking those people how they could possibly know that since anything Stephen has ever been in charge of has been as poorly managed as anything you can accuse of Jerry.
The guy has headed our cap and personnel for years. We've been a team with cap and talent issues for years. I just don't see any sound reason to get excited about a future under Stephen Jones.
