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.
