bc some people feel smart or interesting by going "against the grain", even if their made up arguments amount to nothing more than " the future is unknown" rhetoric.

Hiring madden as a scout, for many obvious and not-so-obvious reasons (elaborated at length above) was a great decision.

We'll see how the decision plays out, he may wind up being the worst scout the league has ever seen or the best, or anything in between... But at this point, very difficult to question or doubt that hire. MB seems, much more so than his predecessors, to understand what kind of decision making leads to success. Only a fool thinks that's the same as "guaranteed" success.
