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

My level of fan commitment will be almost gone if this is true.

Is it really such a bad thing if it happens? Do any of us know that much more about Beane than any of the 'hot' GM candidates out there that a random ESPN or NFL.com article didn't tell us?

Be careful I raised the same question and was blasted for it, just a heads up.

What has Beane done that would warrant him holding the pos full time? I'm just speaking personally, but if it happens.... we will see more empty seats in 2013

Here is my thinking. JR wants to give Rivera another year. JR doesnt want to be in a awkward position when he interviews a potential GM by saying "BTW, if I hire you I have 2 rules. You must not pick your own QB and you also must not pick your own HC because we are keeping Rivera." So if Rivera stays it makes the most sense to let Beane ride it out for a year, let the coaching stay, give Rivera power on who he signs cuts, drafts etc and see where the cards end up falling next season. If we dont make the playoffs, THEN JR will really drop the hammer and fire everyone and bring in a new GM, coaching staff etc

Makes sense

If we're bad next year the entire staff will be gone and a new GM would be brought in

This is the problem though...JR cannot...and I repeat CANNOT afford a f*** like this. The fanbase would turn on him

How do any of you here know whether he would be a good choice or not?!? Leave it to the guys whos job it is to decide these things.....christ. You never know, Beane may lead us to the promised land.

14 losing seasons out of 18 says maybe they shouldn't be deciding these things

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.

Apparently my point about comparing apples to oranges went right over your head, just like the idea that simply being contrarian doesn't exactly make you smarter did

this would be the typical move for this organization.status quo. this team would still be bad, under coached and will be picking in the top 10 forever.

Really the point that I'm getting at is that when it comes to personnel managers, you generally don't want to promote from within unless you already have a well-working system in place. Dimitroff worked with the Patriots prior to being hired by Atlanta, Marc Ross worked with the Eagles before being hired by New York. Pioli had a background with Parcells in the 90s before being brought in by New England. So there's three examples that actually are personnel managers. Maybe people would take you more seriously if you stayed on subject and weren't busy snake-oil selling and going "HURR HUURRRR WHO KNEW COACH K!!! I AM AN GENIUS"

I said the same as soon as Hurney was fired.

I'm not opposed to him getting a shot, he's worked his way through the ranks and just because he worked for Hurney doesn't mean he'll do things the same way.

Worked so far!

But yeah I have no idea who Beane is or how good he is.
