Exactly what I was thinking. What a cop out that would be

from handing the GM search over to the architect of the giants' current super bowl juggernaut at one point to possibly just promoting another yes-man from within

wat

for the record though i believe the gettleman talk more than this

Hey, if your team wins 13 games in 3 seasons, is eliminated from playoff contention by week 8, and has serious cap issues, why would you not stick with the guys who got you there?

fug it, lets bring back hurney and sign Rivera to a 5 year extension while we are at it.

Or maybe JR could just take a huge dump at midfield before the next game to let the fans know what he thinks about them

And if the organization is stupid enough to to go against Accorsi in favor of a dumbass move like this, the fan exodus will be massive.

A fan base is going to quit on the Panthers based on who JR hires as GM? I think you have lost touch with reality. The average Panthers fan probably didn't even know Hurney was the GM or what he even looked like.

I'm pretty damn sure most of the PSL owners know who's who in our front office.

A fan base is going to quit (and has been quitting) on a team that is pretty much a running joke year in and year out. Four winning seasons in eighteen years. Four. Since 1995. It's not that half the fan base will literally say "omfg we chose Beane?! BEANE?!". What they'll do is notice that we're a poo team next year yet again and stop caring even more than they already do. And Beane, the guy who was an underling to the other guy we just ran out of town because of the complete fuging mess he made of things, gives very little hope that we'd change a system and situation that has completely and utterly failed.

JR did say they wanted to do things their way. If this happens I'm selling all my tickets to opposing fans next year. Something I swore I'd never do.

on paper this makes sense, but in execution it will fail.

it's a good sign that we'd be in for more of the same that that all the changes made have been nothing more than window dressing. it's a shout to the world that everything is fine here, even though it obviously isn't.

now it could be that beane has the inside track, but considering they haven't been able to talk to the people they would like to it wouldn't be a hard thing to accomplish (being on the inside track).

it's kind of hard to not be ahead of guys that haven't been talked to.

Did that for the Atlanta game. It was my form of civil disobedience.

I slept like a baby that night.
