Great news, it shows that old bastard may actually give a damn.

We just cannot hire from within, and I'm sure the consultant will agree when he is done with his evaluation.

Well played Mr. Richardson.

It takes a Big man to admit that he needs help. Usually doesn't come until you're cornered and/or hit rock bottom.

I see what you are saying and I agree with you. I also think that he should have already identified the issue with the organization and already had someone in mind to come in and fix it. I'm not in disagreement about what he's doing, I applaud it. I just think that it looks bad to not already have had a course of action prior to firing your GM early in the season. I'm not the only one that thinks this either.

If it was really that easy, do you think all the companies that have failed over the years would have been able to pinpoint their problems? Why do you think so many businesses that are struggling look for help from the outside to try to right their ship.? If JR knew this answer, he would have fixed the problem after 2010.

How do we not know that the Panthers didn't have a course of action to hire a consultant before they hired Hurney? We can't just assume these things because none of us really know what goes on behind the walls over there.

This is obviously a thread I should have avoided like the plague... I've never ad my words twisted so badly in my life. For the last time I don't disagree with what JR is doing.

Carl Peterson would likely be my first choice, followed by Ernie Accorsi and Ron Wolf.

And to be honest, I'd be more likely to trust Andrew Brandt than papa Gil. Why? The younger Brandt was employed by an NFL front office (Packers) during the salary cap era. Smart as Gil may be, he never worked with a cap, and I'd be less trusting of his evaluation of someone else's cap management philosophy for that reason.
