I cant say he's a bad owner since he tries to do the right thing by staying out of the way most of the time and let football people do the football work. Problem is the people he hired arent getting the job done.
Only reason I hate the son of a bitch motherf#cker is the fact he jacked prices in the old dump, then helped build that monstrosity that has terrible atmosphere and not a real nice place to see a game. I'll never forgive him for that. i hate the new stadium and refuse to ever pay to see a game there. Football is no longer as much fun as it once was thanks to Woody pricing me out (and no, there is no effing way I would sit in those ridiculous upper deck seats- i'd rather watch the game on an illegal feed than put up with that sh!t)
This is why the "pushing PSL's" argument is being made. But this could be made across the entire NFL, as more new stadiums have/are being built. Just ask the commish,
Back to Woody, I think he is clueless on what is needed to win and too distant to notice when things are not going right. 3-6 is a byproduct of many bad decisions made long before the season even got started - and Woody doesn't know any better so he never got involved.
Getting rid of Faneca, Weatherford, Ellis, Jones, and many others just to save a buck has impacted this team. Getting Mason and Plax last season and neglecting to draft good young talent then, directly impacted our offensive performance not just last year but this year also.
As Coy mentioned continuity is very important, given you have good talent. Ad if you don't, bringing on scrubs and has-been's two years in a row won't cut it. With Woody's inexperience, having a football czar like a Parcells, Wolfe, Polian, Cowher, or many others would have seen what is going on and stopped the self-destructing moves before they put us on the road to where we are today.
So, Woody is not a bad owner but he needs to get someone with football operations experience to run the show since he can't.
