Among the teams picking in the top 4, which team would you most like to be the GM for? In other words, which team has the brightest future . . .

Oakland
Detroit
Cleveland
Tampa Bay

note: I excluded Arizona because they would undoubtedly be the overwhelming choice, IMO.

Tampa or Cleveland.

Prolly Tampa.

no way the raiders, the lions just because of job security, maybe the browns but they just have the worst luck, so i am picking the bucs( not being a homer)

Tampa Bay because it is nice and sunny down there and a couple years of GM money before I got fired tucked away for retirement would do me good. Busch Gardens is there too...

Detriot, because Millen is the only thing holding them back, and if I were GM, Millen would be OUT. I could do damage with their wideouts, and they have solid DTs which helps me to build my Dline, draft Joe Thomas for the OLine, and rebuild.

Cleveland, they have the right idea going but just need some pieces to fall into place

Hm, I went with the Lions... no real reason only than they are my 2nd favorite team in the league.

Honestly, I would pick Oakland. They have a very good defense already, talent at WR and the #1 pick. Their line has talent and just needs some consistency on the coaching front and it could turn out good. Their only real question mark is quarterback. While that is a huge hole to have, I still think they have the most pieces in place as of now.

I really like the direction Detroit is going. Martz' offense will produce, especially if their O-Line stays more healthy than they were last year. Meanwhile, Marinelli is a rush end away from completing his transition.

Tampa strike me as being the most stable

Homer thoughts aside, this one isn't even close. Those top 3 teams are consistent laughing stocks in every which way. The Raiders only recently though. The Bucs just won a Super Bowl 4 years ago, in case you have forgotten Xiomera. They won their division 2 years ago too, over the Super Bowl favourite Panthers. I don't care what our draft pick is, we don't even deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as those teams.

The lions because I would really run them into the ground! :D

Browns because they are the only team i can out of the rest.

I will go with Tampa, mostly because they have a stable organization. It doesn't hurt that they will be getting Calvin Johnson, most likely. I still would pick them even if one of the other three teams would be likely to pick him.

No, I didn't forget? And I question why you single me out here? I haven't even given my reasoning . . .

IMO The browns are the only team on that list that are on a small rise so i would take them. Tampa is probably my next choice.

If they don't win now, all their positive momentum goes away. Which is why I am hesitant with them and Tampa Bay.

Arizona, Detroit, and Cleveland are cursed. Tampa Bay is an old team, so you'd have to rebuild a lot. Oakland has plenty of talent on that team. I'd go with them.

I like what Cleveland is doing. Give them AP and I think they could be very good. Too bad their division is pretty sick.

Yea i would take A.P. too but i see a huge bust in Adrian and i would rather take Alan Branch and sign short term solution at RB, some1 like Corey Dillon and take a RB next year when the class of RB's will be much stronger.

Logic says the Browns.

But history says "STAY AWAY. STAY AWAY".

I'd go with the Lions. I'm sure with a semi-competent GM, that team wouldn't drown in inefficiency.

Cleveland. I would have no interest in sharing power with Gruden, and the other two aren't even an option in my mind.

History doesn't say stay away from the Lions?

You must not know the history of the NFL that well. The Browns are a proud franchise.

Again somebody that knows nothing of the history of the NFL.

Untill recently the Bucs were THE joke of the league. It's not even close. I really have no interest in historical precedence as I don't think it means much in today's league, but the Bucs are not a proud franchise, one Superbowl non-withstanding.

1st pick: raiders. u have a top 5 defence that is very young and the number 1 draft pick. id trade moss in a heart beat for rodgers then take either CJ or AD with the first pick.

2nd pick: browns. u have a chance to get quinn, russell or AD in this draft. u got winslow and edwards. okay defence

3rd pick :lions. roy williams as ur great wr and jones (even though hes hurt) qb is a question mark so quinn or russell would be the pick. u have their really good DT(forgotname) but everything else on their defence is a question mark

4th pick: bucs. u have like 6 qbs on ur roster. old defence. only one playmaker on offence is caddilac.

Its only been the last 10 years that the Browns have been a joke, and that was Art Modell to blame for at least 6 of them.

The rest of the Browns history is great.

I would pick tampa bay, the other 3 teams are just too horrible for me

i would take Cleveland, but only because they have Braylon Edwards...

Raiders because they have one of the best young defenses in the league already in place and theres talent to work with on offense.

Number 10

Tampa Bay-

Nice city-fan base is there-awesome stadium-recent success

I say the Raiders. They have a nice defense, but a terrible offense. I think that it would be easy enough to fix that, especially considering the O-line is very poorly coached. If the Raiders drafted Brady Quinn, Joe Staley, Micheal Bush, and Kyle Young (which is very possible) they could really turn themselves around, although it may take a couple years.

They have great WRs in place and it seems like coaching is a lot of an issue with the Line (although there isnt great talent, they should be decent enough)


The Bucs arent bad, but there are a lot of older guys there.

so many homerish answers. im not going to vote, im just going to list some postives:

Oakland: have alot of talent, moss, gallery, huff, and their defense is solid. Alot of these ppl just need some reality checks, and hopefully kiffin can do that.

Detroit:
would love the job security, millen blows and hes still in power, which would make me have the confidence to take whoever i want.

cleveland:
seem to be going in the right direction, dfense played well last year, offense needs some work. Some good signings, but you never know, steinbach could turn into bentley, they just have that much luck

tampa:
good organization with some good parts, such as jon gruden. Pretty solid d, with alot of nice weapons on O, including newly arrived jeff garcia.
