Beane is not a cap guy. Rob Rogers is the cap guy.

Beane monitored budgets, coordinated logistics and made travel arrangements. He's essentially a glorified administrative assistant.

If that's the case, what does he actually provide to the situation!?

Kind of strange they'd word it in this manner.

If the reports of JR having a tough time making a decision on Rivera are true, then yes he's being interviewed for the Job today.

Of the two potential general managers it appears Dave Gettleman makes the most sense. While he may not be the name that conjures the most excitement, he is the most logical. Jerry Richardson is a creature of habit, and his past history has been to look at pro scouting, and player personnel -- rather than an executive with a college scouting background.

Or sportswriters :(

Polian had been a GM for a while when we got him. Hurney's main selling point was that he apprenticed with Bobby Beathard (hence the willingness to trade future first rounders)

Found this piece from earlier last year

http://blogs.greenbaypressgazette.com/blogs/gpg/insider/2012/01/09/under-radar-scouts-who-could-be-gms/

Dave Gettleman, New York Giants’ pro personnel director: In his 24th season in the NFL, including 14th with the Giants. Extensive background in scouting college and pro players. Has worked for teams that have been to five Super Bowls (Broncos and Giants) and won two. Has interviewed in the past for GM jobs with the Giants and Browns. Stays under the radar because he’s not a self-promoter, but highly respected for his scouting acumen.

It was intended to be humorous.

I think he gets a courtesy interview (maybe) and then goes back to his old job.

Ross and Gettleman each have over fifteen years working with scouting, player evaluation and such. Beane's experience doing those things is measured in weeks, and even that was with Rivera's help.

as it should be. the job shouldn't just go to a coach with no winning record because he's here. he should have to make his case why we shouldn't look elsewhere.

i just wish our new GM was part of the process.

If the new GM was, it would be more of an open mind handling the process also. Just knowing the Panthers way, we probably pretty much stick with status quo. The only thing about status quo is that it hasn't worked well with only 4 winning seasons in team history.

I expect that'd actually be a big positive for Jerry Richardson.

not unless he's got nothing more than an edge on other coaching options and his job isn't as safe as some think.

btw, if the other guy is mccoy....give me rivera all day.
