Never really thought Howson was a bad drafter, he just didn't have the people in the right spots to develop the young talent. I don't know if it is his decision or not, so I won't place the blame on him, but I still can't fathom why there wasn't a defensive coach in Springfield last year when all of our defenders were making their pro debuts. Howson and the organization failed this team by not developing home grown players correctly by not putting players in positions to succeed and not providing the players with good coaching. Coaching has been a consistent issue here, even Hitch wasn't that great for us by his own admission. Following up Hitch with Arniel and Richards isn't exactly a positive move.

Overall I feel Howson did a good job stocking this team with depth going forward, now the new guy just needs to add top talent and properly develop some of our young guys into impact players rather than just depth guys. Guys like Moore, Atkinson, Goulbouf (sp), Jenner, and Johansen.
