I am not a huge Cowher supporter, but it sure does seem like the door is opening for him. JR, not only fires his head coach, but his entire coaching staff. That in itself, feels like JR already has a big name head coach picked out, that will bring in his entire coaching staff with him. Cowher has said previously that he wants to stay in NC to be close to his family, and would coach again if the right job came along... well that is insinuating that he would like to coach the Carolina Panthers, he has waited 4 years for this job to open up. The job is his if he wants it.. and trust me, he wants it.

I believe he already has a deal struck with JR, and it will happen very very quickly (this week). I don't think we will waste Jim Harbaugh's time.. as I believe JR has made up his mind, and will be appeasing the RR, to get the Ron Rivera interview out of the way ASAP. The press conference tomorrow very well could be the announcement I am talking about.

Oh, and the 'short list' for Cowher, never existed. http://sports.yahoo.....urn=nfl-301058

The alternative theory is they have a deal set up with Harbaugh already, and they set the press conference for the day after his Bowl game.. which would make sense. However, I don't think they would have fired the ENTIRE coaching staff for Harbaugh. I could be wrong though.

It seems that we will be getting a high profile head coach.. not a lesser known coordinator that ESPN seems to imply. I believe JR will be going BIG. JR will pump life into this downtrodden franchise. Cowher and Luck would achieve this goal. Again, I would rather have an Offensive minded HC like Harbaugh, but the writing seems to be on the wall.

That's where you're wrong I think....

Harbaugh holds all the cards, there's one of him and at least 5 different teams that want him, including Stanford. If JR wanted him bad enough and Harbaugh said I'll come if I can pick my own staff it would be done.....

You have a good point there. Hand picking your entire staff would be extremely appealing for any head coach, however, I do think Carolina holds some cards with Harbaugh as well. We have the rights to his Quarterback whom he declared as the 'best quarterback prospect EVAR!'.

I have seen the word fired used to describe what JR did to our coaching staff. That is not true. They were allowed to fulfill there contracts and weren't retained. I know that is just semantics but it's very important in my book. And I also think that is was smart to do so as to allow the new coach to bring in coaches that he fills comfortable with.
There is nothing that says that the new coach won't bring back a few of the assistants the he feels are compatible with his style.

If he goes to Denver it unfortunately may not matter.....
