Floyd Reese vs. Ruston Webster

Recently, Lindsey and I have had several discussions on the podcast about GM Ruston Webster. During each discussion, it was my opinion that he would be fired at the end of the season.

In an attempt to support my argument, I decided to compare Floyd Reese's last five years against Ruston Webster's first five years. There is a real difficulty in comparing picks from a list where most player's careers are over against picks from a list where most player's careers are still active. I decided to compare round-by-round average starts. This was as close as I could get to an even playing field. 

So here are my findings:

Floyd Reese

1st Round: 6.97 average starts per season per player
2nd Round: 7.23 average starts per season per player
3rd Round: 5.28 average starts per season per player
4th Round: 3.56 average starts per season per player
5th Round: 1.95 average starts per season per player
6th Round: 5.80 average starts per season per player
7th Round: 3.88 average starts per season per player

OVERALL AVERAGE GAMES STARTED PER SEASON PER PLAYER: 4.95

Ruston Webster

1st Round: 9.44 average starts per season per player
2nd Round: 6.92 average starts per season per player
3rd Round: 4.14 average starts per season per player
4th Round: 5.46 average starts per season per player
5th Round: 2.30 average starts per season per player
6th Round: 0.97 average starts per season per player
7th Round: 0.14 average starts per season per player

 

OVERALL AVERAGE GAMES STARTED PER SEASON PER PLAYER: 4.20

I also decided to look at busts and hits from each round. It's a little more subjective, but as you will see these choices were pretty clear. Remember this is 2002 - 2006 for Floyd Reese and 2010 - 2014 for Ruston Webster.
