Mr. Scot

The Next GM

I'm guessing if JR waits into the season is over he could be looking at Player personnel guys from the Packers, Giants, and etc.

Added a video link and a little more info on DeCosta.

The video's worth viewing even though I think we have zero shot at DeCosta.

(I'd love to be wrong about that)

Beyond the Super Bowls, I just like the way the Giants have been built the past 4/5 seasons. That's why Abrams and Ross seem like very intriguing options.

I also like Will Lewis and who he's brought in out in Seattle.

Will Lewis left Seattle last offseason, but I also like how Seattle was built. That secondary is just sick good, they've got a nice pass rush, and they seem to be getting good production out of WR's that most weren't very high on (in fairness, that may be coaching more than talent evaluation). I'm not a huge Russell Wilson fan yet and think it's likely that they are looking for a QB again in a year or two, but it is still a well-built young team overall.

While Lewis may not be a legitimate candidate, if I were a talent evaluator, the Hawks are one of the teams I'd look at for benchmarking purposes.

I want to find out more about that story. Only did a cursory search so far but wasn't able to find much in the way of real info as to why he left.Some speculation that the addition of Scot McCloughan made him redundant, but that's about it.

Had to chuckle a little: In the video, Eric DeCosta admits he reads draft previews and checks out mock drafts.

Marty Hurney once made a point of saying he didn't need to look at stuff like that :lol:

The more I read about all of these potential candidates for GM that you have listed Mr Scot, the more I like Tom Gamble of the 49ers. Gamble has Carolina ties having been a scout for the team and also the Eagles, Ravens, Jets, and Colts. He is also a local guy being a High Point U. alum.

I was just watching the NFL network and saw a former GM that had that job for 16 years.

I think we can all agree on him.

Charlie Casserly should not be considered under any circumstances.

Yeah, Casserly's not on my list of potential GMs.

Wouldn't be terribly surprised to see him considered for the consultant role though.

    • I also want to take this space of internet to announce that I'm still so fuging happy we got Monk. 
    • Not really a fan of MCW. Not even sure if he is better than Sessions tbh. I don't think Teague will want to be a backup much less take the MLE, but who knows- might not be a market for him. Livingston would be incredible but don't think we have the money and why would he leave Golden State unless they don't offer him anything.  Here's someone that's not a free agent, but I would not mind us taking a shot on: Dante Exum. With the Jazz trading up to get Donovan Mitchell Exum looks to be ousted as the PG of the future there. He's had his struggles but he's extremely talented and has never really had a great mentor like Kemba would be.  I'd give them Sessions (lol), Jeremy Lamb plus a couple second rounders. Would not give up any of our core: Batum, MKG, Cody, Kemba, Dwight, etc. Wonder if they would bite on that? It's crazy that second rounders really do become valuable. If we had an extra second we could have had Mason + Bacon likely.  Part of me wonders whether or not we will try to have Monk run some backup PG. That would be a mistake IMO. He needs to be running off screens all day.
    • I wrote to both Tillis and Burr - the thing that pisses me off the most about this is that the savings that this bill creates in the budget are not used for deficit reduction - they are nothing but a hand out to the wealthiest among us and corporations in the guise of creating a more robust economy.  These heartless lying  bastards make me sick.
