    And Andy Reid was still maligned at least til he proved himself and won a SB....and then he did.

    I’m just not going to make that assumption.

    It’s possible Paton just thought it was time to get his feet wet as the top decision maker.
    Guess its possible but i doubt thats the case given the circumstances

    Guess entirely depends on the new owner/s

    but if im paton thats something i wouldve asked when i interviewed. Especially since he turned down other inquiries about being a gm elsewhere.

    thats a ton of work to put in knowing that it doesnt matter what you do or how well you do your job that being fired after 2 seasons was inevitable

    And its also been talked about quite a bit. Under the conditions at the time there wouldve been no reason why they wouldve given paton a 6 year contract. If that were the case? Why would paton leave his job for this when he turned down others if that were the case?

    guess we will find out

    i dont know because everyone's different ? aren't we judged in lives on our records , 24 years is quite a long time.
    Paton has no record as a final decision maker beyond this season.

    Plenty of underlings from successful teams have been hired to run a different team and failed miserably. I’m sure there have been many hired from mediocre or even bad teams that have gone on to do good things when given the chance to be the top decision maker.

    you give paton as long as it takes until its proven he cant do the job. He was given a 6 year contract.

    fair enough but it wasn't my intention to mislead , as per post #9 i was only musing on his record in pro football , what was it 10 years 97 through 2006 and he's still searching for a formula , there isn't anything particularly striking about it is all i'm saying .
    Why not focus on what he actually did?

    not necessarily , what term would you like to see him given if the broncos say dont win more than seven games a season over the next three seasons ?
