Why would it be considered "jumping into a hasty situation" by signing a GM early when that someone is the best candidate?

Exactly, wait too long and another team could grab him. I say draw up his offer now

Still in playoff contention due to Cowboys loss

not sure if a Seattle win changes that, possibly.

They would need to win next week, and would need Seattle and either Chicago or Minnesota to lose.

Because they/he may not be considered the best candidate... didn't think it was that difficult to read or understand.

In a business, you make it a point to interview all candidates before making a decision. The "Leave no stone un-turned" quote is a perfect example.

Imagine if the Panthers would have taken that quote into fruition last year and when out of the way to interview Harbaugh, the Panthers probably wouldn't be in this position to begin with if they had.

It's like that time Hurney tried to call Bobby April to get him after he had already signed with someone else.

Or they can do that and Ross gets taken by someone else while we get other teams leftovers just like every offseason in Panthers history.

Considering the only other team that might be looking for a GM is the Chargers, I doubt that will happen.

Hiring a general manager is not like hiring a coach, you can do a much more thorough investigation on your prospects because usually at most there is only around two other teams looking for a general manager.

Also, you have to look at from the interviewees perspective too, he will also want to make sure that he is getting the best deal.

The Panthers will definitely line up an interview with Ross as soon as possible but don't expect a decision to made in the next two weeks.

That's assuming that he is the best candidate. Tom Gamble is more qualified, honestly.

But, I see Gamble as the only reason we wouldn't hire Ross right away.
