    Personally I rate him with a very fluid 7.0. He could easily slide up or down my scale. :)

    Very low. Lame duck coach. If we get on a prolonged losing streak he wont finish the season at the helm. 4 is my level. So far the offseason has been unimpresive. We've gotten worse IMO. A year older. We didn't add any impact players to a roster that produced a couple of 8-8 seasons. We're banking On staying healthy and so far this early in camp that has proven easier said than done.

    I do have some confidence in Garrett, but it's a process

    I think he's a bottom 10 coach, maybe bottom 5

    I don't know, I started out thrilled that Garrett got the job after Phillips. His 5-3 finish that half year had me excited about the future. But his inability to manage games properly and the propensity for his teams to play stupid drive me nuts. I am actually quite down on him coming into the season. I'm hoping him being a walk around coach now will help him get a better grasp on things overall. I'd like to see these supposed inspirational speeches start to translate into crisper, more disciplined play and more wins. He's right- it's time. Now lets see if his coaching ability matches his pep talks. Right now I give him a 5: He is what his record says he is.

    I hope Garrett overcomes his terrible clock management and we make the playoffs and he is our longterm HC.
    If not, I hope we lose more than we win and hire a new HC.
    I just don't want to go 8 and 8 again.

    He has a vision for the team and has been following it. He has been drafting well, contracts have been reasonable. Coaching staff has been upgraded immensely.

    I think a playoff push will be in order this season and JG will finally get fan respect.

    Was pretty hard to add any players of significance with a weak draft and no money to spend. I actually really enjoyed watching Durant while he was with the Lions, and think that he will be a great addition.

    Do we really have time with the team we have now to give Garrett the time he needs to learn fundamental football?

    6. An average confidence level for an average record. He gets a bonus point for having to overcome our GM. Like many others, I like a lot of what I've seen in the big picture - coaching staff and talent acquisition, but at this point, it's hard to rate him higher until we see results. Back to back 8-8 seasons are simply not acceptable when you have a top-10 franchise QB. If Garrett were having to totally rebuild, then I'd feel much better about it. But when you have a franchise QB in his prime in the new pass offense-oriented NFL, you should regularly be posting winning records, even if your team has some other deficiencies that you couldn't fully control.

    Still saw too many stupid mistakes by players, too many game management mistakes, and way too many times last year we fell behind early in games. We expect to see improvement in these areas with the changes in the coaching staff and with more experience as HC, but I've gotta see it first.

    That's my assessment, at this point, as well. But I'm interested to see if my own confidence level rises and how others' confidence level changes throughout the season and the process.

    3 for me as well. I can only go by what you've done up to this point, which is absolutely nothing.

    I like Durant but passing on Shariff Floyd will come back to haunt us.

    This has been a refreshing thread. I feel like I just stepped out of the shower after using my Old Spice body wash.

    I love the smell of napalm....uhhh, Old Spice in the morning.

    I have a personal rule... I will never fault any team for drafting an OL/DL in round one, unless QB is a need, and a clear franchise QB is sitting there (Andrew Luck, RGIII, etc...). When it came time for us to draft, I was 100% all about us drafting Floyd, I personally thought that it was a no-brainer. When they drafted Frederick, I won't lie, I was pretty stunned. He's a guy that I thought would be around at the start of the third round. But, sticking with my rule, I won't fault them for drafting the guy.
