    See, I'm not convinced it'll be a whole lot different.

    Yes, Stephen has more sense about him and he doesn't crave the spotlight like his father. But do not underestimate the influence his father has had on him and more importantly, the influence his father's way of doing things has had on him.

    Remember, he has been his father's right hand man going on 20-plus years. In all that time, how many times has Stephen tried to talk some sense into his dad about maybe going outside of the organization for a GM or bringing in a HC worth a damn?

    He may do it in a different way, but I'd be willing to bet that Stephen also enjoys the benefits of running the football aspects of the team much like his father did and does, so I think it's naive to assume that once Jerry is completely out of the picture that Stephen is going to go the way of Robert Kraft.

    There's a very good possibility that Stephen will be far less annoying than Jerry, but that doesn't mean he's going to run the family business all that much different than his father did.

    I wonder if we will be able to get good people when they know Garrett is out on his ass with another bad season.

    Jerry's mother died in her 90s, and he's in his 70s right now. He could live another 20 years.

    Wouldnt it be sweet irony if Garrett's successor were someone we hire in this go round? He picks his staff, and watches one of them take his job, ala Fat Wade back in .... '07?

    Wasn't Garrett hired before Fat Wade though?
    For some reason I can't say that phrase out loud, its one of the reasons I will never be the actor Robert Downey Jr is. I always say Tastey Peabag instead of Pastey Teabag, and thats a really big difference on just a two letter swing.

    Yes, but Garrett sandbagged Wade when he got tired of waiting for Jerry to fire him

    Garrett was the coach in waiting. Perhaps the next one is on the staff already. Judas?

    Or in the owners box.

    They are waiting on Jerry's grandson.
