Uh oh. Pat Y might just have dropped a bombshell. Get ready for Beane as GM

We have some of the most paranoid fans in the NFL, you don't see Browns fans acting like this.

You are a fan, not an employee of the Panthers; quit acting like your opinion matters.

This would be JR's greatest mistake to date. It's very hard to believe it's true, but if so, how many of you now think that letter from PSL owners was misguided?

This isn't about Beane (for the few on here that think he would be fine). Beane may be an up and coming young mind. At this point though, he has zero personnel experience, and that is the most important part of the job.

I just can't believe JR would be that stupid.

Hey Bucko, who do you think contributes those billions of dollars the NFL brings in every year? Santa and his elves? It's the fans. The people that pump up TV ratings, that buy PSL's, and that go to the games.

If their opinion doesn't matter, who's does?

I'm not down with putting a guy who's never even worked as an area scout in charge of our entire draft.

You and I both know that there isn't just 1 guy making all the calls on all the players that the Panthers look at to draft so I see that as a moot point.

He has an entire scouting department to look at players for him and he would also be getting feedback from Rivera on who Rivera would want and bounce ideas off him.

Hurney got fired because he was asked the question by JR "how do we fix this?" and he answered "I don't know" which is the wrong answer to give a man who is paying you millions of dollars to run a team.

My Biggest questions about Beane are, is he a good manager, is he a good communicator? can he get all facets of this team working in one direction together for one common thought and goal, this is the big question.

Not does he have the proper experience scouting players, he has a whole department for that. I think the best thing many Fans can do to understand the job of a sports GM is to go watch the movie Moneyball about the Oakland A's GM Billy Beane. may learn something about what makes a good GM, Beane did such a good job they made a movie about him.

Those in charge, I've never heard of a fan being the reason that a coach/gm got hired. Have you?

Keep talking about HCs and basketball coaches doc it's really proving a point here when we're talking about football operations executives

I'm talking about prior organizational success dictating future success of people attached to the said organization, that was the point, apparently it went right over your head.

    • I do think Kpassagnon is an interesting prospect that needs to be in the right situation to thrive. It just so happens that we have one of the best 6'7" defensive ends in the history of the NFL on a reunion tour with us in 2017 and maybe if need be, 2018 if he holds up.   Kpassagnon's attitude and work ethic is strong and tireless. His 3-cone and vert scare me for a defensive end, and that's not something you can teach. Being able to bend and explode off the snap to beat OL is not something that Peppers can show him, but maybe Peppers can show how to use athleticism to his advantage.  I can see him being just another Michael Johnson/Erik Armstead player or I could also see the environment here in Carolina benefiting him and he becomes a Carlos Dunlap kind of lanky DE that causes headaches along our DL. Kpassagnon's spider web looks amazing and awful all at the same time. I'd take him in this draft, but "where" is the big question.
