we won't be paying hurney anything. the guy has been working without a contract for a couple years. he's owed NOTHING.

He'll likely be paid for the rest of the year, but nothing moving forward.

Panthers had a winning record under Polian's tenure, as did the Bills and the Colts...

Yeah

Polian isn't happening even though he still lives in town part of the year

They aren't on good terms

If there's even the smallest bit of anything happening on that front (which includes Chris down in Atl) I'll know

I'm available. My credentials include running successful teams in ESPN football and Madden. My first move as Panthers GM, is suggesting we fire Rivera and make myself the interim HC.

I don't THINK they have any issues with one another (could certainly be wrong)... But Polian left the team to become the VP of the Colts, which was a promotion over what he had in Carolina... He's always spoke fondly of Carolina, so a return wouldn't be unfathomable... And let's face it, the man knows how to build a football team, top to bottom... And how to sustain it...

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

http://www.nfl.com/n...t-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.

Peyton Manning fell in his lap. Look at what that roster did without him last season.

They've somewhat been on speaking terms but Bill is done with the management side of things in the league. If anything, Chris or Dennis will be working towards getting further in the NFL.

I say bring in Cowher, give him full control as coach and GM


I remember reading something that said this is exactly what Cowher wants, full control. Are there any other coaches like this other than Belichick? I can't think of any other coaches who have "full" control...
