I didn't get much out of that, except that Harbaugh would cost more money that we think he would

yeah, it seems the only thing he could find for us going after grimm and not harbaugh is that we wouldn't spend the money. he's paying too much attention to what richardson did this year.

i have more reason to believe that richardson will shell out the bucks for a top notch HC than ever before. this year the franchise screwed up and it was as much his fault as anyone's. he needs to energize the fanbase and a selection like grimm just isn't going to cut it.

Yup, does he realize what Fox is making this year?

Fox is one of the highest paid coaches in the NFL. Until this year (with a lockout looming) JR has never hesitated to spend when it made sense to him, but because he doesn't spend wildly like Schneider or Jones people assume he won't try to compete with them dollar-for-dollar as soon as the CBA is resolved and there's no basis for that assumption except this one-year anomoly we're currently in the midst of.

On the flip side, there is much less pressure as the coach of the Panthers then in the white-hot spotlight as the coach of the Cowboys, 49ers, etc... People assume coaches want the "prestige" of coaching one of those organizations, but I think that's a falsehood in many cases. Coaches want to coach somewhere that is commited to supporting them in their quest to win championships and discounting this year, the Panthers have demonstrated that commitment as much as anyone.

Having the # 1 pick will be the trump card if Luck declares. I think most people realize the Panthers are a young, talented team with a few gaping holes in the roster right now (QB, DT, WR). Having the # 1 pick may be the determining factor in us pursuing Harbaugh as a HC, which would most certainly cause Luck to declare himself eligable.

In any case, it's going to be interesting to sit back and watch this all play out.

True..but the problem I see is if your Andrew Luck and thinking about coming out would you want to come to a cheap organization?

I know Richardson is not cheap but everybody outside of Carolina seems to think so and maybe Luck would too.

I think if luck is smart enough to go to stanford he is smart enough to do some back digging and not look at one season.

what are the assurances that the team you got drafted by the next year would be anymore willing to spend money. he could get drafted by any number of really and legitimately cheap teams that haven't been to the playoffs in years and that are a whole lot less stable situations than here.

give me one reason why jim harbaugh would want to come to the panthers other than the giant "what if" that is the panthers having the number one pick, andrew luck declaring, and the panthers committing to selecting him.

the man will more than likely have much better opportunities and more attractive suitors than the panthers this year.

IF the whole idea behind dumping salaries wasn't to be cheap, but to prepare for 2011 or 2012, then picking up a big salary wouldn't scare JR at all and would be exactly the move that he set himself up for. So, that argument hold no water.

i gave a couple, but i'll answer directly.

1) the program is in rebuild mode and he would be working with a blank slate. that is the kind of challenge he is drawn to, evidenced by his previous employments.

2) the team is young, which would be a similar situation to what he has in college

3) the team has a good deal of talent already on it, it just needs better coaching

4) you don't have to deal with an ass clown owner like he would in dallas, oakland, tennessee, cincy, or washington

5) he'd have a lot of family nearby

6) tax situation isn't all that bad compared with places up north or what he's got to deal with in cali.

7) owner is known to pay big money to coaches

8) good bit of connections with panther organization already

9) he favors a solid run game which is exactly what he would have here

10) panthers are near to his heart. he has an indy racing team named after them.

that's just a few off the top of my head.
