Most of the Jacket fans on these boards will admit to liking most of his moves despite the team's record. You should feel comforted to have him in an advisory role, especially with MacT talking about the need to make bold moves (read: trade one or more of the young guns).
Thanks for the comment. I agree. I've been looking forward to seeing who we pick with him now. If we can pull off a 2nd half in this years draft like you guys had in 08, I'll be thrilled
