GM- Dave Gettleman...yeah, he's old, but he's accomplished. short of decosta, he may be the most qualified candidate

HC- Chip Kelly...yeah, college coach no NFL exp (i'll deal with that in a moment) yada yada yada...point blank, this guy is respected through the NFL as running the best practices in the football anywhere. he's known and respected by many in the league for his ingenuity and for those who think his offense can't work or that he'd be trapped into what he's doing now, please ignore the influence that he's had on the patriot's offense this year and the fact that the more prolific offenses have been running spread offenses for years. i don't like his lack of NFL exp, but fundamentally he has everything you need except pro experience which can be balanced by his coaching staff. btw...cam newton is pretty much ideal for his offense and newton's got some real good experience running his hurry up/no huddle fast paced offense (which is the biggest draw, tbh).

DC/Asst HC: ??? what i'm going for here is someone that has an aggressive D and has experience as an HC or at least assistant HC. as asst HC he'd help Kelly adjust to the NFL as far as what to expect with the rules and other subtleties that distinguish the pro level from the college level.
i have three at the top of my list. Jim Schwartz (who i think will be fired after the year because he can't control his players, but who is a very good and aggressive DC and his experience as an HC would be invaluable to Kelly), Dick Jauron (who i think will be available when the whole browns coaching staff is let go, but is still considered a very good defensive mind despite what the browns defense has been able to do this year. and then Winston Moss... promotion from LB coach. i think he's learned from among the best on not only running a defense but on running a team.

OC: again, i have no one name but i do have a desire for it to be someone with years of experience in the league. Kelly will probably be running the offense and calling the plays, but he does need someone to help run the show. i would actually prefer it be an OL coach who coaches a style that would be simpatico with Kelly's style of offense. top of my list, but probably not realistic is Dante Scarnechia (OL/Asst HC from the Pats). he's been there for a very long time but there's no doubting he knows how to make an OL successful. i just see no reason he'd want to leave the pats. Pat Flaherty, OL coach from the giants. he's had that job since 2004 and he's done pretty well, don't ya think? James Campen from the packers, Tom Cable from the seahawks, and Aaron Kromer from the saints would be others i'd like.

oh...and i want chris weinke to be the QB coach. thanks.

When drawing these things up, you have to be realistic about it. The GM is most likely going to bring in someone he is familiar with or has an outstanding interview. The HC is then going to decide the OC and the DC to fit his style of scheme, so most likely assistants wherever the new HC was just at. It's not just a matter of being like, yes, Keith Butler, he would definitely leave his dream job to come be a DC at Carolina, with Jason Garrett as OC, and with David Shaw as HC.

On the subject of David Shaw... He's absolutely my #1. I think he is everyone's #1. But the dude isn't leaving Stanford. He played for Stanford. He has worked his way up at Stanford. It's his dream job. It would take something extraordinary for him to leave.

Brian Shaw should be our #1 target,those Stanford coaches are smart and know how to win with less talent.

This is a really out of the box hire....but implementing the triangle offense would really change the NFL...

and btw, @ Ruff: I really like Seely as an option. Would be totally down for that.


I think we're some of the only people on this board that realize how awesome Seely would be as a HC. :D

Plus, I think it's a very, very realistic scenario. Seely, in essence, coming home to the Panthers, along with Tom Gamble, who has studied with Bill Polian.

You're unwavering advocacy has almost sold me on Chip Kelly. I'm not there yet, but I'm warming up to the idea.
Weinke for QB coach? I'm definitely on board for that.

the qualifier has always been that he surrounds himself with a solid team of coaches with pro level experience to act as advisors and helping any adjustment to the pro game (which i don't think would be as big of a leap for him as it would for other coaches).

To be perfectly honest at this point id only want settle for two GM hires. Either Marc Ross or Tom Gamble.

And for HC in likeliness of hire it would go 1) Kelly 2) Shaw 3) Arains. I see kelly as the most likely to leave his current job.

As far as the Coordinators go I'm comfortable with anyone who the HC feels like is going to help them give the team the best chance to win and be the best, and ill leave it at that.
