Remember Jerry said he didnt know how to check his voicemails?

It definitely gives some perspective on JR's reaction if true. Seemed like a genuine but light-hearted "would love to talk to him, but he won't talk to us..." response.

If it's true because of his idea about the money, thanks to the national media, and Harbaugh could go f*ck himself, we'll just take his QB.

That's exactly what I was thinking...

Or... What if Harbaugh, or someone near him, is Gantt's source?

and since JR blew the cat out of the bag, Harbaugh's people are now scrambling to make it look like it's not that the Panthers don't want him (which might drive down his value) but that he wants MORE than they'll pay...?

Harbaugh himself? Doubt it.

Someone who knows him (say, Mike Lombardi, for example)? That I'd buy.

I don't buy for a second that Harbaugh would just go off what the media says about what we'd pay him.

If he knows anything about what we would or wouldn't pay, or will and won't give, it's because he got it from the source.

I'm sure he wouldn't either, being that he played here, but I'm sure it has jaded some candidates to a degree. And not just the media, I'm sure Foxy is letting anyone know how he feels that's willing to listen.

What I found really interesting is, there's only 53 guys on the roster each year during the season, not counting practice squad guys...

So, JR's reaction basically inferring that he didn't know him and sure he was a nice guy was awkward. So we had him for over a half season in the final year of a pretty good career and you didn't even meet him then? I just found that weird.

According to Gantt, it had already happened or was already in the works.

But today, the team claimed to not be interested.

So did they just all of a sudden get interested after the press conference, or had there already been contact?

Which one sounds more believable?

Valid.

Fewell, Rivera, Manusky, Harbaugh

The salary requirements of one of these does not match the others. That's the guy we crossed off the list.

That is what I meant, not really JR himself.

Ok, as to JR not knowing Harbaugh at all, I don't think he meant it like that.

Based on some stuff I've read it sounds like Harbaugh wants full control over personnel and that's not something the Panthers are going to give him.

None of the above.

Gantt had a bad source and this beat writer in SF is speculating.

Far more believable, imo.

I find this report to be more believable than what was presented at the press conference today...how could the panthers not have ANY interest in Harbaugh?
