Elite but more adaptability please?

This is an elite podcast. Thomas you do an awesome job. Suggestion? Mix up the questions GM to GM? Too much repetitiveness and the most recent episode with Joe was really dull.

Faith, family and friends-

True dude! Never changed during the whole process of his success. Respectful, courageous and competitive. Those qualities can be hard for any ego. Raised right and never played victim. It's hard to imagine football used to be a game.

Soft on the substance

If you’re looking for some inside information regarding how to build a team or set up a draft board or you are looking for some real insight on what you think an NFL GM does this is not the podcast for you.
