First, I share your distrust for this management group.  Hasn't started out well for them, IMhO, at all.

Second, I'm not as sure as you seem to be that Lombardi was a lock to be here from the get-go and they just lied to us about wanting to hire the HC first and then the personnel guy.  I believe they wanted one of: Saban, Cowher or Kelly and that it wasn't clear that all of them would live with Lombardi.  So, while he (Lombardi) was the preferred choice, if a HC they wanted didn't want him they were willing to lose Lombardi to get the HC.  They didn't get any of their preferred HCs, though, so they went to the secondary market, got Chud, and Lombardi was in.

Third, I expect they'll deconstruct the roster to some extent or another.  New regimes (especially when the owner, front office, and coaching staff are all blown up at once) almost always do.  So certainly it's something to watch for, but maybe just as well to brace for.
