A quick blurb on our situation by Albert Breer:

3) The Carolina Packers hired Ron Wolf in November of 1991. The Dolphins hired Bill Parcells in December of 2007, and the reason they did it then, as one person who's been around Parcells put it, was to "give him a chance to assess the damage." In both cases, the new exec was given a chance to evaluate the team as the season was ongoing, which allowed for more clear-headed decisions in January. The Cleveland Browns have set themselves up to allow Joe Banner to do that now. And the Panthers should do the same: Find someone soon and give him a chance to see what he's working with.


Agreed. Agreed. Agreed.

As bad of an era as we're presently in, with no one in-house having any answers and the guy who just got fired just the same, we need someone to come in immediately and take inventory. This way we have a plan of attack to turn this thing around before the season is over. It's vital to both who we keep going forward and who we need to add.

I really hope JR acts soon. Very soon.

Only issue with this is that no one currently on an NFL staff can be approached. Hiring too quickly may lead to hiring another dud.

What did Parcells do for the Dolphins that suggests we should rush into this?

I've thought about that as well, but there are some solid options available now. I prefer to get a young up and comer from a solid background versus a re-hash like Jerry Angelo though.

Are there any actual rules stating that we can't hire from another team in-season? Can't we ask permission to interview as is the standard during the playoffs? It does seem awkward, but I fear if we wait until the end of the season we may as well prepare for another wasted season next year as well.

At the very least they should have the consultant in here soon.

I do not expect us to have a GM in place before the end of the season when guys who already have a job are available.

The consultant, I would hope, will be allowed to go over the organization from top to bottom and could begin the process of assessing damage then provide information to the GM we hire if that guy is someone we can't possibly hire until he's not employed elsewhere.

It's less ideal but I'm not sure I want to rush the GM hire and settle for someone they don't want for the sake of moving quickly unless there's a superior candidate sitting out there now without a job.

I'll admit I don't know if there is.

yes the carolina packers need to find a new GM fast so that they can start up their franchise before their inaugural season next year.

They don't really need a GM in here now... that can wait. Would be great however to have the consultant on board well before season end so that person can evaluate the coaches, players and organization and see where JR wants to go so that a decision on a GM and whether or not to retain Rivera and staff and if not, who the new coach and staff will be.

All i know is that we are the laughing stock of the NFL right now. Every news outlet right now is kicking Cam and the panthers while they are still down. Pathetic.

Bring the consultant in soon and take your freaking time finding a GM.

Rushing into this would be a horrible decision.

I agree with everyone on the consultant angle. That would definitely work if the consultant is willing to be "all of that" for the time being. It just seems kind of clunky to me to have the consultant as a sort of placeholder and the guy searching for the next GM.

I don't think the idea is for the consultant to be a "placeholder" is it? They've already got that "temp" GM guy... the consultant should do nothing but analyze the organization from top to bottom and make a list of qualified candidates for GM that fit our structure... interview them (if possible) and recommend names to JR.

no offense to you bro but youve never ran a football organization before.

But I know for one thing in business is you never rush into making an important decision. Im sure the same can be said for this situation.

Especially when we will have to wait for some good candidates until after the season. If you could wait to hire a good sales person or jump the gun to get a mediocre one what would you do? especially when this season is a loss anyway and JR is still making loads of money for the time being off of this franchise.
