yeah, from a florio written piece so take it for what it's worth...still interesting.

Former Giants and Colts G.M. Ernie Accorsi has been hired to help Panthers owner Jerry Richardson find the franchise’s next General Manager. The buzz in league circles is that Accorsi will recommend going with a younger option.

So far, three names have made their way onto the grapevine: former 49ers G.M. Scot McCloughan, Ravens assistant G.M. Eric DeCosta, and Giants director of college scouting Marc Ross.

DeCosta has moved in recent years to the top of the “A” list for future/eventual General Managers. The contract he signed earlier this year, however, reportedly prevents him from leaving, in exchange for paying him like a G.M.
.

.
But that’s all part of the process. In the end, Accorsi will make his recommendation to Richardson. And Richardson likely will accept it. Otherwise, why hire Accorsi in the first place?

i included decosta's paragraph in there just for clarity's sake. there is a little more on ross (which we all pretty much know about) and mccloughan (which i'm not all that familiar with) in the article.

considering the direction that accorsi helped the falcons go, i think it's safe to assume that accorsi will recommend a youthful option for the GM job here as well.

Well I've been driving the Marc Ross bandwagon for a long time, why jump off now? I don't think DeCastro can be lured away from Baltimore.

It's Thanksgiving you fugging goon.

Anyway, who is the second bust behind Balmer? Smith, Crabtree and Iupati are all starters and keys in their team's success.

If these are truly names that are surfacing from Acorsi's work than I would think these are people who are interested in making a move. The level of vetting that Acorsi would do would filter out those who would not be interested.

That suggests these names aren't a reflection of Acorsi's work and just general speculation.

I'm thankful you lead by example and I am ashamed of absolutely nothing in that thread.

BTW, I edited the thread in order to keep it on track.

For where he was drafted many would say Crabtree hasn't lived up to the billing.
That said at the time he was probably the right pick..

This talk of a "moneyball" approach makes me a bit nervous, as well as his one time comment that he would never pay big money to Guards.

He may not want to pay them, but drafting Iupati in the first before the rookie wage scale shines a little light of that.

When judging Crabtree you really have to take into account the QB situation before Harbaugh and the fact that they still rely heavily on the run. I'm not his biggest fan, but I could see him as a stud in a better O, like NO, GB, Denver, etc.
