Went thru that whole “process” for two weeks just to hire the guy DePodesta wanted last year. SMH.
This is my problem and why, after 45 years, I'm pretty close to saying "I'm out." With Moneyball/Littlefinger winning this battle, he now has the power. By bringing back Andrew Berry to be the GM, which has been speculated, he's basically "getting the band back together" from 1-31. Only thing they're missing is Sashi. The same stench is in the building when they should've blown it up.
This was one of my biggest concerns because what has Depodesta ever done? By that I mean how many rings did he bring the A's? Yeah, none. These guys covet draft picks yet they don't know how to select NFL talent. OBJ, Jarvis, Chubb, Garrett & Bitonio are tasty little trade chips. Could see these clowns moving these players so they could put their "stamp" on the organization.
Another reason I wanted McDaniels was because of Mayfield. Who'd you rather have trying to fix Mayfield's issues, the guy who worked with TB12 or the guy who helped "coach up" Kirk Cousins and even then there's skepticism that he was even the mastermind behind that (Kubiak). They will probably be looking for a new QB in 2021 too.
I fucking hate what Hee Haw Haslam has done to this organization. Even Jammies Lerner was a better owner than him.
