Talent on team
The next factor in talent is the GM – the guy who drafts players, signs free agents and figures out how to arrange salaries to maximize the use of the salary cap. For me, this is the guy to blame for talent on the team. Many people think John Spanos is making all these calls, but I seriously doubt that. You don’t pay Tom Telesco a butt load of money to do nothing.
If we want to focus blame for talent on the team, put it on Telesco. Now some of that responsibility does go to Spanos for hiring Tom, but to be fair it should be like a 90-10 split as far as blame goes.
