Football intelligence is the responsibility of the scouts, the position coaches, the HC and the GM.
Ultimate responsibility is the person who selects the players draft or free agent or trade.
Good coaches coach the stupid out of you or get rid or you.
Good GMs try hard to not pick stupid players, but more importantly identify those players where the stupid can be coached out of them for the good of the team.
One of the basic functions of a football is to rid itself of the stupid.
Ulitmately this applies to mgmt along with the players.
Right now I won't place Garrett in this category. It doesn't mean he won't find a seat in that part of the theatre in the future.
