Give Mayhew a Chance!!

Polian: Martin Mayhew one of the top young GM prospects

Bill Polian, who knows a few things about constructing a winning NFL franchise, told FoxSports columnist Jason Whitlock that Martin Mayhew is one of the top up-and-coming general manager prospects.

September 25, FoxSports.com: Last week I was at the same college football game as the best general manager in professional football, Indy's Bill Polian. At halftime of the Kansas State-Louisville game, I picked Polian's brain about young GM prospects. To my great surprise he was extremely high on Mayhew, who was just promoted to assistant GM in Detroit.

Polian is convinced that Mayhew has a deep understanding of personnel and a tremendous work ethic. Mayhew was one of only four guys Polian identified as a future GM.

If you don't know, Polian built the Buffalo Bills Super Bowl teams, the Carolina Panthers team that advanced to the Super Bowl and, of course, the Indianapolis Colts squad that won it all. He knows what it takes to build a winner.

Mayhew might be worth hanging onto for a year or two.

The only thing keeping people from accepting Mayhew is the fact that he worked under Millen. This doesnt mean that he will be bad if anything now he knows what not to do as a GM. People have said that he has already done more in half a season as Millen did the whole time he was in Detroit. It may take a couple of years but I believe Mayhew has the work ethic and the ablility to turn the lions around. Plus he can already start thinking about Head Coaches while other teams that have fired their GMs have to wait to hire a GM. Im pretty excited to hear his press conference and happy that the lions gave him a chance especially after the Brilliant Roy Williams trade. I mean we got so much for Roy when he was more than likely gonna leave for nothing at the end of the season. REally the trade was the best thing Detroit did in a long time. I say just give him a chance..
