And I suppose we need more information about the extent of his input in personnel decisions. Did he want the Kolb trade? Did he sign off on Levi Brown at #5 when Adrian Peterson, Patrick Willis, Lawrence Timmons, and Revis were there for the taking? On the whole, they didn't draft well in Arizona while he was there, including taking two oft-injured RB's (Wells, Williams) in the first two rounds over a span of a few years.There were a lot of poor personnel decisions in the desert and they need to do their due diligence to determine how much he had to do with those.

I realize the sexy pick doesn't always work out, but after over a decade of garbage this team desperately needs a sexy choice just to keep people interested.
I can understand that. Still, at the end of the day, you have to go with the guy you think will do the best job, not the one that's going to get the fanbase riled up.
