I would like to start a thread for discussing whether the past year withouth Scott Pioli was better or worse, as far as personnel moves, than the previous 8 years with him. Many times people give SP credit for the team's HR "genius", forgetting that BB was always the top man and that no personnel moves were made without him. Still, if we look at the one year since he left vs the other years we can get some inkling of whether his influence was as positive as the conventional wisdom suggests, or not. I haven't researched this, but I know some of you here know all this stuff by heart, but off the top of my head I would say the 09 draft was better than 08, and probably better than most of the 05-08 drafts. As far as non-draft moves, post-Pioli we have some free agents that didn't work out (Greg Lewis, Joey Galloway) but we have some of those when he was here too - Donald Hayes, Adalius, etc., and some poor draft high round draft picks such as Bethel Johnson and Chad Jackson. So, please discuss.
