I'd pick this apart claim by claim but just let me protest the fact that anyone would consider the disposal of several draft picks and serviceable prospects for absolulely nothing "quite clever" and well, if you think the current roster is "exceptionally talented" only in need of coaching well, your nickname is suitable.

If and when this thing gets turned around there won't be any credit available for one of the most damaging executives in the team's history. None.
