As we head to the dog days of camp, lets talk about what moves by the new regime are working and those that are still in doubt. This is a rag thread to discuss what was the single best move by Mike Holmgren and what was his worst move. On the worst move, this can also include actions that weren´t taken that should have been. And so I don´t take an endless stream of chit - let me state - I would not include the drafting of Colt McCoy in the best move category.
Overall, Holmgren has several strong candidates for best move. He ended the QB controversy, made Cribbs happy, acquired Andy Heckert, and had several nice moves on the player front. The Eagle trade seems like it will add some much needed depth to the secondary, and Gocong has looked fairly strong. Fujita was a nice pickup, especially in light of the DQ injury. Kudos for the attempt to improve the right side of the line - needed a top 3 pick there for sometime, and Pahos was a good gamble. But for me, the 2 best candidates for best move are the Heckert hire and the acquisition of Seneca Wallace on the cheap. At a minimum, Seneca will add some creativity to offense in dire need of creativity. Best case scenario, he would be an uber solid number 2 QB that could ride in on a white horse if Delhomme reverts to 2009 form.
On the worst move side of things, I am just not crazy about the packaging of picks for Montario Hardesty. Due to his injury history, would have stayed a little more patient there. I am so so on the Kam trade, just liked him and did not think the value was great. In addition, while I like keeping Mangini, I would have given the boot to Daboll´s fat or skinny arse depending on which stage of his binge and purge cycle he was on at the time. But I think the biggest negative comes on moves that were not made. For me, we needed to add a little experience to the S and WR positions. Since Mike Adams is not a terrible depth option, I will make the number 1 issue the inability to upgrade the WR corps with a veteran over 5´7" and under 50, and not named Engram. Still, can´t fix everything, and overall a great start.
