The GM Candidates

Solid Thread as Always.

IMO look for either Ross or Gentleman for the job.

I believe Ron has earned another year after the 2-8 start, and the turn around we have seen in the last 6 weeks.

i don't think the Saints game will make a difference if Ron stays or not, but it would make it tougher choice for him to go if we win tomorrow.

Also in Carolina, there's more talk that interim GM Brandon Beane will get the full-time job.

To answer another question from a Panthers reader, I've heard that Ron Rivera is safe.

Yes, he read it all on the huddle.

Or from Yasinskas.

Lord knows some of these media guys have a habit of parroting each other.

I'll take Adam Caplan's word on this topic over Jason Cols.

I have a hunch Gettlemen is the guy. Ross is my preference, but the stars are aligned for Gettlemen .

Jacksonville will fire GM Gene Smith, per sources. Two GM candidates in Jacksonville will be Cardinals' Jason Licht and 49ers' Tom Gamble

I have to think that they knew where they were going when Marty was fired. The season was done, so why fire the coach then? Firing Marty was bit impulsive on the surface, but maybe not. Perhaps JR wanted to put scouting as well as players on notice. Still, I do not think you fire the GM in mid season unless an overhaul was in mind.

Gamble to Jacksonville would be no shock.

Don't expect the GM to be the only change at the front office level. I think there's a pretty good shot that we'll see some general restructuring as well. Accorsi was hired with the expectation that he'd make other suggestions also.

Could be a really interesting offseason.

If Florio is right, could be more competition for GM candidates out there than was expected.

Plenty of General Managers could be in jeopardy too

Might turn out to be a good thing we got a head start.
