There has been an awful lot of change in the office over the last several months, and that was before the tragic loss of Ryan. Dave left some months ago and a lot of people were already kind of wondering what content would look like without Patrick.
So at the moment we pretty much only have Brad and Jeff as regular on screen guys. Vinny and Drew are normally behind the scenes doing stuff. As weird as it may seem to mention, it sort of looks like they are going to have to try to bring in some new people if the site has much of a chance of continuing on. It can't just be Brad and Jeff talking to each other in every Quick Look or TNT or whatever.
It just seems like an awful lot has been laid on the shoulders of these guys all at once. Any loss in such a small team is difficult to overcome, but so many in such a short period of time must be particularly brutal. I think the people who are expecting a quick return to some form of normalization might be a little too optimistic about where things stand at the moment.
