Agreed. Yes Quinn has blown a few picks, but he’s also shown sheer genius enough to where IMHO his player aquisitions (draft, trades and FA) have been great overall. It’s almost unsettling as a Lions fan to have such a great GM. But I mean he has been. Ragnow is the #1 Center and Glasgow is what the #3 OG? It takes balls to draft a Center that high, but if you knew Ragnow was going to be the very best in the NFL do you really feel that bad about it?? Heck no! To boot, Quinn has generally shown that he does not compound his mistakes by riding them too long.
He dumped his drafted Long Snapper when he saw that Mulbach was better. He took one year too long with Tabor, but he kept Mike Ford instead and look how good he played against KC when called upon. I think giving Decker the 5th year option was a bit of a bad move and not moving on from Wagner has been a spotty decision, but way more good than bad.
