Will JR stick with his philosophy of bringing in quiet staff that will conform? Or will he bring someone in who will rock the boat?

This is the guy who wouldn't even consider Harbaugh as a coach

U gotta believe Rivera is gone after this year if JR brings in an outsider.

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

Yeah, it was from back in January.

So you give Polian no credit for 11 out of 14 winning seasons, hiring one of the best coaches in the games history (Dungy), and 9 consecutive playoff appearances? Yeah, he's crap...

Sure I do, I just don't think he's the personnel genius many think he is. The Colts had a crap defense for many of those 14 seasons.

Floyd Reese was the Titans GM during some of their successful years. Last I heard I think he was a consultant somewhere. I'd have to look him up.

He and Richardson might be able to craft a good working relationship. Of course, Reese is also remembered as the guy who drafted Pac Man Jones.

I remember Reese getting the job with the Giants. And aren't you guys forgetting something, just like with the players, your new GM needs some experience with the Chargers. Of course barring an AJ Smith firing - that would be a little easier said than done. You'd have to bring either Beathard out of retirement or Butler out of the grave. Randy Mueller would fit that quota since he's Smith's assistant. Richardson and AJ Smith working together would probably be the best "Grumpy Old Men" duo in the league

Director of Player Personnel for NE since 2008

Bring in Cowher, make Kevin Greene the DC, pull Chud's head out of his ass or hire someone else.

Reed just said on twitter that Brandon Beane will now act as GM for the rest the season

This contradicts Joe Persons statement saying there would be no acting GM the rest of the year.

We had a guy with a Chargers connection. We just fired him.

Meuller is the only realistic possibility there. Experienced? Yeah, but I'm iffy on that idea.

kilgo on the radio talking about bringing polian back.... lol that old man needs to just get off the radio

That old man knows more about football, basketball, and radio (as well as politics and print media), that you could ever hope to know if you were fed with a fire hose for 100 years. I don't know a single person in sports or radio who does not respect, if not revere, him.

I said this is another thread, but I think we all know who the GM is going to be.

You guys throwing out all these names of guys on other organizations need to step back and take a breath.

The GM is going to be a guy who we've never heard of and it's going to be a guy promoted from within. It will be a guy who understands Mr.Richardson's philosophies and knows how Mr.Richardson wants to do things. It won't be an outsider because I don't think JR wants to ruffle any feathers.
