Rob London, our next GM (dafuq?)

64 posts in this topic

Before we get all emotionaled up about how Jerry is an evil warlord, keep in mind that this is only from a tweet that a Charlotte City Councilman whose football credentials are nil and is mainly in charge of putting up low income housing in the Charlotte area. NJPanthers is a more credible source.

Everyone please read this post....

From the link...

David Howard is a member of the Charlotte City Council-- looking to work for the people of the Queen City to solve some of its most difficult problems. He also doesn't mind a good NFL scoop every once in a while.

If Howard's NFL circles are right, then we all best prepare ourselves to head into an NFL nuclear winter. Thankfully, however, I don't think this is remotely close to being a possibility, and for a variety of reasons.

In short, and with all due respect to David Howard-- I'm not buying it. When an organization brings in Ernie Accorsi, it's to mine his knowledge about up-and-comers from inside the league, with specific knowledge garnered about possible wunderkinds waiting in the wings. It's not to bring him in, then hire somebody with no NFL experience. Judging by the company he keeps, Rob London is a gifted evaluator of NFL talent, and should he choose to cross the aisle into an organization he could fair very well; but as a GM? No thanks.

Pretty clear some of you folks haven't read the linked article yet.

The rumor didn't come from Dator. It came from someone else (David Howard).

Dator said he wasn't buying it.

You also realise Dator has as many links to the Panthers as you or I do, right?

Not entirely sure why he's being brought up. He's just another fan.

I have no link to Dator either. The reason I mentioned him was that people were blaming him for the rumor. In the article, he gave the actual source, and explained why he didn't believe it.

Just setting the record straight.

Guys I'm new to the forum but I wanted to add my 2 cents. I think Dator didn't do a comprehensive search on Rob London (I did a 5 minute fact finding session). Turns out, the guy is said to be smart, has an excellent football IQ, and was groomed (in his college football playing days at Delaware State University) by guys who are currently high ranking NFL team executives! Duh, is this not what we want, a person who was groomed for this business since he was a young bright player himself? The Raiders hired Reggie McKenzie, duh a former "Player" and he was also groomed with the packers org. Guys I like the sound of London! Lets use commom sense and reserve "shooting" our loads if we havent done our research. Here are some things I've found on the guy from last year when the Raiders interviewed him:

More on Robert London

**Update** I heard he turned the Raiders down because he likes working for the individual athlete! WHoa, GM's make like 3 million a year and he turned that and the "power" of running an organization down.. GET THIS GUY!!!
