An anesthesiologist yes, I would trust, because they are taught certain guidelines and procedures in college, and it is very consistent between every one of them. A GM or a coach is different. Not all are created equal. Some coaches have trouble with the offense or defense or have other weaknesses while others are well rounded. It's obvious Pagano has trouble coaching offenses. GM's are responsible for the cap, drafting players, and signing FA's. Drafting players is an inexact science. Most use very different techniques and end up being failures at it. The players are also different every year, and GM's aren't consistently good like an anesthesiologist that does the same thing with the knowledge he learns. A GM's success is random to a degree and somewhat luck based depending on if his draft picks and FA's hit. I wouldn't depend on an anesthesiologist that is depending on Luck to help a patient. You are fully trusting a GM and Coach at every turn that are making a lot of luck based decisions, and especially a coach that is poorly offensively minded. We may not be better than them, but that's not our job. Their job is to be better than 31 other coaches and GM's. Pagano definitely isn't that, and it's too early to grade Ballard and put that 100% trust into him for me yet. I'm human and so he, so I will question his decisions at times.
