Not THE John Schneider, the GM for the Seahawks. No, we need A John Schneider, a guy like John Schneider. I don't know how many of you follow Paul Allen's other pro sports team, the Seattle Seahawks, but I am a life long fan. I grew up there, had season tickets for many years. Paul Allen's other pro sports team, The Seahawks.........they actually seam to have a fully functioning front office....top to bottom. Why is it like that?......and not so much with the Portland Trailblazers? Is it that Paul Allen likes football a lot better than Basketball? Seriously, what is it?
When the Seahawks transitioned from Holmgren to Mora to Carroll, it was a bit messy there for a time, but in the end with Schneider and Carroll, it looks like the beginnings of something special.
There is just something about Schneider that I really like. Mostly, this guy is smart and he was a system guy in Greenbay and their collective tutelage. The guy is smart, a good quote, and really loyal to his players and coaches, and best of all, he is a master talent evaluator. The Portland Trailblazers need a guy just like this to be our GM. Sometimes I have to pinch myself to remind me......WTH...we don't even have a GM here! This is a professional Basketball team without a guy in charge! Unbelievable really.
So Mr. allen please build us a front office that more closely resembles your other pro team franchise so that we can get back on another winning track. A guy like Schneider would be a great start. Okay.........go get started.
