    Just an observation. Jerry is so insistent in having the title of GM, yet he doesn't seem to want to actually do what one does.

    But I'm sure he's enjoying Aspen on Senior Bowl weekend. They showed his mug taking in some X Games on ESPN.

    Not that I'm necessarily complaining, because Jerry wouldn't know a guard from punt returner in terms of NFL talent.

    I don't know what is worse, me wasting my time reading this, or you wasting your time writing it.

    WHO CARES....just goes to show you JJ isn't the one who is looking and deciding on these guys....just signs the check.

    Most NFL team reps leave the Senior Bowl on Thursday. They focus more on the practices than the actual game.

    Some scouts may stay to watch the game, but most all NFL folks leave by Thurs, since Fri should be a walkthru.

    And all the film gets sent to the teams.

    There were years Parcells didn't even attend the senior bowl.

    I thought Jerry made the final call on draft picks -- especially where there isn't consensus in the rest of the front-office.

    Seems to me to be more than just signing checks.

    Stephen has been acting as the GM for nearly the past half decade.

    Is Jerry tearing up the half pipe in Aspen?

    Yet you are complaining, hence the reason you started this thread. You should get one of those cool, new, No Jerry avatars, and join the No Jerry movement on this forum. Its trending.

    Jerry is the face, but the vast majority of the work is done by other folks.

    He's working as Stephen's flak jacket right now. Once it's removed, things could get ugly for the younger Jones.

    Just to clarify some things said about scouts/execs earlier...

    The execs/front office guys usually do not watch the game and leave the day before, however, the scouts do remain to the see "cradle to grave" process to the end.

    The film is given to them afterwards, so Risen is correct about that.

    The purpose of the Senior Bowl is to see how prospects respond to coaching at the NFL level and how they respond to it. At this point the scouts are still looking at their technical flaws and if they can be "coached up" out of them.

    Much like the combine, this event shouldn't really affect their overall grade but rather confirm things that the scouts have seen all year long.

    Thanks for the clarification...

    I think what your post does is pretty much confirm that Jerry's absence is a non-issue.
