    Who is G-Mac's trusted right hand man?

    Orr had Hallihan, LE had Steve Barnes, Phil Jackson has Tex Winter, etc....

    Clearly his guy at UNI wasn't a secret it was Ben Jacobson. But who is that guy here? I am not simply asking if he has a person filling that role. I am asking if he has "that guy"?

    With all the plays Mac likes to run he needs an Offensive Coordinator. Jacobson was that guy at UNI and I don't think Mac has that guy here.

    Would it be over simplifying things to say this is the magical problem? Probably. But it might be a place to start.

    Maybe I should be more clear. I don't see Jeff Rutter as that guy. I see him as filling a role and, quite frankly, not doing it well enough. TJ Otzelberger is our main recruiter. Clearly the in game stuff isn't workin and we aren't in a position to fire Mac .....

    A scene from Office Space comes to mind when the Bobs are talking to Tom Smykowski, "What would you say ya do here?"

    Re: Who is G-Mac's trusted right hand man?

    I think G-Mac clearly answered this question today. Rutter may have been with Greg for a few years, but Jacobson was his right hand man. I believe Greg has lacked "that guy" since his arrival. Is it over simplifying things to say that this shake up will be the turning point? Maybe. But I believe the right hire filling the new void, could be a large step in the right direction in turning this around.

    Pollard. Remember the GMAC motto "winning isn't everything, IT"S......not even an option."
