It is here, finally. Douglas is King. 

You've been screaming for this for about 3 years.  Now that it's been formally announced you're still whining.   Impressive, really.

I know other teams have the GM and HC on equal footing but this is really good news for the organization that the Johnsons realize they may not have the knowledge or skills to execute that structure. This is a degree of self-awareness the Johnsons have not shown since...ever?

Maybe but it’s not in culture 

If an employee can go over the head of a manager to the boss what power does the manager really have to oversee the employee 

 

Maybe but it’s the structure most teams have

Yeah it's one of those things you look at when the team is losing and point to as dysfunction. The Chiefs have it where Veach and Reid both report to the owner but no one cares because they win.

If that manager is thought to be incompetent or just lacks sound judgment, which happens a lot more often than you might imagine, then yes it is of paramount importance to go right over his head. I work with incompetent idiots, so I routinely go over their heads.

They put that structure in place after they realised Idzik had been in over his head, but his was the only voice the Johnson's were hearing.

I'd be interested to read more about the reasoning behind this change ...it definitely suggests they are 100% convinced JD is "the one".

I love how CJ basically said...."yeah sure, it's changed just to make you happy. Doesn't really make any difference you bafoons".

“We’re still going to suck whether you like it or not”

Correct.  Nothing has really changed.  He is just appeasing the fans.

Now, they need to hire a VP of football operations to have Douglas report to. 

It is progress though.

My sense is that in time, if the team has the success it hopes to, Douglas ascends to that role and grooms a GM.

The fans and the media have gotten themselves all twisted over this reporting structure nonsense as if it means something.  It doesn't.

If the CEO of a movie company doesn't like the director, he's going to be fired whether he reports to the producer or not.

I just like that it minimizes the Johnson dimwit twins.  They literally have NOTHING to do with football operations now...other than signing checks (with a mix of money from their Daddy and us)

Based on an actual figure, he is believed to be one of two people that suffered the blood eagle. 
 

Wait.  I may be confusing my fat Middle Ages king. This is aella, the king that was blood eagled

King Joe.  I think I saw that Movie as a kid in the 90s.  John Goodman starred in it.  Maybe that was King Ralph.

King Ralph was hysterical.  I remember going to see that with my buddies in the theater when we were like 12.  i remember there being a super hot blonde in it w/ huge cans.

Would love it, not going to happen though.

This is absolutely the best we could have hoped for if we are being realistic.

Just don't need Saleh having a weekly meeting with J or J.
