And ultimately, it does not matter. What we need to concentrate on is things that can change, not things that won't. Jerry is not giving up being GM, best we can hope for is for him to fix the other problems with this 8-8 team.
Now, I didn't see Ryan as a problem, but I didn't see what he was doing on defense as a solution, either. It was just OK.
I do see Garrett's play-calling as a problem, so I'm happy we're trying something else.
I don't (yet) see Garrett's head-coaching ability as a problem. I thought he did a good job with the team handling the Brent situation. And he does seem to have a handle on some of the details of being a head coach.
I'll take the changes we've been given, along with hopefully a few personnel changes, and see what happens ... rather than sit here and worry about something I know that isn't going to change, Jerry running the team as GM.
I guess others are content constantly wringing their hands about it, but I don't want to spend my time as a fan that way.
