MB always seems to fight the last war. In this, he's trying to find the anti-Keim.
The good news (there won't be a bad back end), from my perspective, is that this guy seems very accountable, very detailed, goes out of his way to make a connection, and doesn't sound like he's trying to sell us a bill of goods. He also comes across as someone who really feels and will bleed Cardinal red. He seems genuine. Keim sometimes seemed to project this aura of infallibility.
Mo obviously believes in his 'process and system' (I think this will be the thing we always hear)
I like him. I think he nailed the presser. As others said, he seemed nervous and twitchy, even a little goofy, but I liked it.
We'll see the results. I hope his intuition is as good as his process and system. He clearly places much trust in them, as that's been what's worked for him.
Sounds like we'll be overhauling how our scouts work, so we'll see how much turnover there is after the draft. I liked how scouts will be given a voice to inform coaches about what's out there that will fit. Don't know if we've been doing that. But makes sense if all are involved in identifying help, rather than ?maybe? just Keim taking something under advisement?
Watching the video posted yesterday on the Pats scouts, I liked the idea of matching how they coach technique with the schemes and how they scout someone and see what their traits are (and maybe how they were coached)? I think that with the paragraph above meshes well, especially if it's extended to the fa wire.
I agree with those saying there's a good chance we trade down at some point this year and in future years.
Whether by skill or luck (who's kidding, with MB it's luck), we might have found a credible and solid GM.
