McKay

Postby mamador » Thu Apr 20, 2006 8:09 pm

Espn's Insider has a page where they try to dissect all 32 teams on how and who makes the decisions on draft day...They wrote this about us....



NFC South

Atlanta Falcons
Rich McKay: President/general manager
Jim Mora: Head coach
Rich McKay completely runs the show in Atlanta. McKay has the trust of owner Arthur Blank and also has a strong relationship with head coach Jim Mora. McKay doesn't pound the tape as much as some decision makers around the league, but he does a nice job of gathering information from his scouting staff.
Mora has some pull as well, and McKay trusts his judgment. Due to McKay's ego, there have been some defections from this organization in recent years that have hindered its draft process. One problem with this front office is that McKay is very involved with league matters, and the Falcons do not have someone with power to run the day-to-day responsibilities of the front office.



I found it interesting that McKay pretty much just relies on his scouts and doesn't really look at tape...

Defections? Besides Ruskell who are they referring to? And that was no defection, it was a promotion. Other people such as Reed Johnson and Ron Hill were Reeves guys, so it made sense that McKay brought in his own people to replace them.
