Would JR actually hire Marc Ross?

I feel like he's a perfect choice, an obvious choice. But knowing JR he's most likely gonna let us down with someone we've never heard of.

Based on his history, I worry about this.

The G-Men do have some solid draft picks under Ross. But can he handle being a GM?

What makes everyone think that he'll hire a new GM at all!?

Looking forward to the GM news conference:

"Marc Ross? Never heard of him! How you been Morgan?? Come sit on Daddy's lap."

He's been the director or college scouting for the Giants for the past five years.

Marc Ross is the Jim Harabaugh of GM options.

I pray to god we get him to run this organization.

Exactly. JR may just do it himself (which I fear) than bringing in anyone.

I'm telling yall it's going to be a no name who already works with the team. A promotion from within.

They need to rid themselves of the scouting department too.

The Giants draft record under Ross has been absolutely insane. I hope we go after a top candidate like him or DeCosta. If we pull the "promote from within" crap I am going to flip sh*t.

Same here. I'm terrified of Mark Koncz right now.

If we promote from within or roll with no GM, we are absolutely doomed to continued failure. If this is what we do, then I'm convinced that Jerry Richardson is the root of the problem with the Panthers organization.

Something gives me the feeling that Jerry intends to make this next choice be a home run, he knows we have a franchise QB who should not be wasted. I'm going to lean on the side of optimism that he changes course and goes after a real commodity.

I hope you're right. Jerry has shown plenty of willingness to spend on players, time to do the same in the front office and on the sidelines.

I'm on board, pretty impressive draft resume, and he is just 38 years old.

If he drafted JPP then you already got me sold.

Did you know who Ted Thompson was before GB hired him?

I hope people don't expect a GM you've heard of before. It's just going to be an executive from a good team. That is how hiring GMs work but reading some posts on this site, I'm sure some aren't aware of that. As long as it isn't some scouter from a trash team, I'll be OK.

You should really start following the sport as a whole then. People have known who Marc Ross was for several years now....

Yas is full of crap, that has no real chance of happening.


I like Ross myself, but keep in mind that Reese is the GM. You don't give Ross the credit, he's a part of things and not 'the guy'.

It sounds great but usually if the whole board agrees on something its a bad idea. The vast majority of this board was extremely excited about the possibility of getting Rivera as head coach.
