Give Dimitroff A Break

Okay. If you've read this blog for any length of time, you'll know that I'm not an incredibly patient person. I want things right, yes. I just also want them done right damn now. You'll have to forgive me if this particular plea makes me seem hypocritical, but every man has his foil.

Mine is Terence Moore.

It's not that it's such a terrible article. He's essentially arguing that a great QB can make any GM, coach or assistant look like a freakin' genius. I'll grant him that Charlie Weis and his belly full of elephant meat probably wouldn't have been so popular if he didn't have Brady throwing in his system. I'll even grant you that Josh McDaniels is being hyped to impossible levels despite the fact that he can't legally buy porn. I get his point.

Why, though, are so many fans/writers/talkers/idiots piling on Dimitroff? As one particularly astute dude notes in the comments section of the article, Brady looks great partly because he's so well-protected by his offensive line, a goodly part of which was assembled by our newly acquired Soviet friend. Sure, Dimitroff might schtup the Schnauzer during his time in Atlanta. He wouldn't be the first.

I guess it's just troubling to see that so many of us aren't even willing to give the guy a shot. He hasn't made a single move and he's already being dismissed as a future failure. Whether it's Terence Moore implying his success was dictated by Brady or a random fan insisting that he's not "a real GM," there's too many people undercutting Dimitroff too early.

Give the guy a break, alright?
