I would much rather put the priority on getting a quality "football guy" to be the final say in personnel and then complement him with a cap guy than find a quality "cap guy" and then complement him with a football guy. I'd assume it's fairly easy to find a cap expert... Not so much when it comes to finding a guy who can accurately evaluate talent.

FWIW our current cap dude does a good job with the shitstorm he has had to put up with the past couple of years.

No No we have a guy who specializes in squeezing out some room after Hurney's deals.

I won't assume to know if he greenlights contracts before hand or simply told H-Dog that "Thats going to fug us 4 years from now" and then has to fix the problem later.

I'm of the mind that we need to hire both a GM and a Director of Player Personnel. My dream combo would be Abrams and Ross, but I'm not expecting that.

Oops my bad. I have no clue who he is. I thought he was the giants GM. My bad.

You don't know who Ernie Accorsi is? Do you follow football?

The guy they hire better come in with the mindset to really build around Cam. Not reaching for OG's, DT's, and the like with early picks.

Like Marty Hurney, Accorsi has a background in journalism. Accorsi is a former reporter for the Charlotte News.

Accorsi has a winning background. He's well respected in league office, natural fit with Jerry Richardson. Have known each other a while.
