That is mind numbing. If he gets a job in the NFL again I’m really going to start to question reality....

It’s called a “sideways” move for Doug Williams.

Kyle Smith’s promotion to VP is great!! If he has another great draft and FA he might get the GM nod, or has some have commented, filling the GM job may be not necessarily. But I’m sure Kyle would like another promotion and more money!!

Rob Rogers will handle the negotiating. And Rivera will oversee them both - he'll take Kyle's information about free agents, Kyle will make recommendations, and Rivera will tell Rogers who to pursue.

So unless Rivera decides he wants to completely delegate that process to someone and name them General Manager to oversee all of it, I don't imagine a General Manager having much to actually do. You've got the guy handling all things scouting in Smith, you've got the guy handling negotiations in Rogers, and you've got the guy making the decisions in Rivera.

Don't know what else you need, except for a Director of College Personnel to report in to Smith, who already knows that world really well.
They may already have the role filled, but the current structure would seem to leave some gaps in responsibilities. Who handles all the non-football operations stuff? Who is in charge of picking up players during the season and determining when to put guys on IR? Who is responsible for making trades? Rivera is going to be too busy working on his duties as a coach to deal with that sort of stuff during the season. It could be that Kyle is handling all of those duties, but if so, why not give him the GM title?

I still think there is a good chance someone comes in to fill that GM/Team President type role. If for nothing else, I think we need someone to resolve disagreements between Kyle and Ron that is not Snyder.

I really hope they don't do that. The best scenario would be Ron and Kyle working with each other over the next 3 to 4 months including the draft, things go swimmingly, and there is no need to add another individual to the process.

That is what I thought. But how do you explain this article then.

I explained why I think there is a need. During the season, Ron will be too busy coaching the team to worry about non-football ops stuff, making decisions on IR, practice squad players, etc. The goal is not to complicate the process, but to have someone that can handle a lot of the grunt work so he can focus on leading the team.

Hopefully he can handle it. I'm pretty sure that's what he was brought in to do.

I'm pretty sure he was not brought in to handle non-football ops stuff, at minimum. Unless I've missed a hire, this portion of Bruce's old job has not yet been filled.

Currently, we are "down a man" in the front office when compared to most other organizations.

I agree that he wasn't, but there is time to find that guy. Every indication is that we will bring in a GM after the draft, and that guy should be a Rivera guy, not Kyle Smith. You don't double jump a college personnel guy to GM. Bring in a recognized GM, maybe Morocco Brown, but definitely bring a guy in.

Re: Coaching and Front Office Changes

We'll see...I think the jury is still out on this. If things go really well the next few months, they may not feel the need to bring in a general manager. It's not like they would be setting a new precedent.

My preference is Kyle be promoted to GM and they fill someone so he oversees college and pro scouting departments.
