New GM options?

118 posts in this topic

We should just get the huddle to run the Panthers by consensus obviously. We all have all the answers anyway.

Just some random thoughts about a GM-HC or GM/HC-Assistant HC packages:

Cowher (GM/HC) and Keith Butler (AHC/DC) *even though Cowher is not gonna happen. (maybe haha)

Ross or Abrams (GM) and Perry Fewell (HC)

Will Lewis (GM) and Gus Bradley (HC)

I was actually pondering the Panthers future on the way to work this morning, as yesterday's performance was just the writing on the wall...

I think it'll be Cowher, and he'll pull double duty.

Guys, McKenzie is the new GM in Oakland. He's not an option.

Whomever it is, at least we have some exciting news to look forward to until the draft.

Bill Polian is an intriguing option... Don't be shocked..............

Honestly, I'd be extremely shocked.

Polian and Richardson's personalities just didn't mesh well at all.

why? he's not owed anything. there's no contract. the team is under no obligation to pay him at all.

There might not be a multi-year contract but there is some form of agreement in place. He wasn't working for free.

There is an agreement in place that says they will pay him x per week, or x for the season.

He's not an asst manager at wal-mart pulling down 60k per year to be paid over 26 pay periods. There is some form of agreement in place.

Here's a pretty good write up on up and coming GM candidates:

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/09000d5d825b843b/article/opportunities-present-themselves-for-hot-gm-candidates

The ones that stick out to me are:

Marc Ross - Director of College Scouting, Giants

Russ Ball - VP of Football Administration/Player Finance - Packers

Nick Caserio - Director of Player Personnel - Patriots

Reggie McKenzie - Director of Football Operations - Packers

One thing I want is someone from a successful organization. I don't want some up and comer from some bottom feeder or up and down organization. Get me someone from an organization like the Packers, Steelers, Giants, Patriots, etc. I want someone who has seen how a winning organization works from inside and is used to winning. We need a winner's mentality here. Cam Newton wasn't enough. He had it, but he's stuck in the mire of the Panthers' losing ways right now. We're just too used to losing and we need a coach and GM who aren't and won't accept it.

Must be an old article. Reggie McKenzie is running the Raiders now.

Heres hoping for Gruden, however the timing of the Holmgren situation is interesting he has the credentials and he is available to start now.
