    All we know is Mean Joe never had a great find and now he's gone.

    I'm sure these guys matter and can make a big difference. But it's nearly impossible for us to understand who does/doesn't make an impact.

    I'm guessing that the organization believes that the personnel that they had in place was not doing a good enough job. Little surprise here.

    I think Russ Grimm went on a bender when they didn't give his wife this post.

    If only. She could only do better than what they have now for throwbacks.
