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.

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

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

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.

It's good the Panthers has been evaluating throughout the season.

Regarding Ron Rivera... (link)

After the game Rivera is more emotional than I have seen him. He loves what he does and he loves the man he works for and he loves the players who work for him. He doesn’t want to lose this not when, to him, it’s just getting good.

I ask what will happen.

”I will sit down with Mr. Richardson and we will evaluate the season,” says Rivera. “The process is going to begin when we get back to Charlotte. Like I said, Mr. Richardson has been fair and I appreciate the opportunity that he’s given me and we’ll see how things unfold.”


Whatever happens, Carolina has to entrust the football operation to a general manager. And how can the Panthers do that if they say: “We want you to run the team except we’re going to tell you who the coach is.”

If Richardson tells the general manager who will coach, what else will he tell him?

This is why I’ll be shocked if the Panthers make a move this week. Even if Beane is a candidate, there have to be others. If the candidate works for one of the 12 teams still playing meaningful football, Carolina can’t court him until his season ends. They can’t court candidates from teams that didn’t make the playoffs until Monday.

If Sorenson is correct on the rules...

Able to interview immediately:

Marc Ross
Dave Gettleman
Joey Clinkscales
Steve Keim

Would have to wait on...

Eric DeCosta
Tom Gamble
Scot McCloughan
George Kokinis

Of those four, the only two I'm all that interested in (DeCosta and Gamble) are likely long shots anyway.
