Many people are wondering why we haven't made a move to either fire or publicly endorse Ron Rivera for next season. This isn't about JR being indecisive or attempting to buck any trends. Arguably, the most important hire that will be made will NOT be the head coaching position. It will be the GM.

Now, what is the first way to show a GM that you're a meddling owner? Make his first big decision for him before his seat is even warm. That would be..... the fate of the head coach.

While JR will certainly have a TON of input on the situation, a likely interview question that can be pitched now is what are you going to do with Ron Rivera. The answer to that question may help determine if JR and Accorsi/Beane, etc. are on the same page as the potential GM in their vision for the team.

Part of me feels that JR has already made up his mind, made it up a long time ago, and is waiting to let the new GM handle the formalities as well as the new head coaching search.

When a highly regarded executive steps into a situation, he wants a degree of autonomy. He wants to be able to form the team in his own image. Nothing is more enticing to these guys than complete control over personnel. No untouchable head coaches, no untouchable players, and a blank check to do what they feel is best for the team. Anything less than that, and the job becomes less attractive.

I could see a hire late in the week followed by the fire of RR then the fly out of Kelly after his bowl game.

An alternative scenario is that JR is looking to bring in a big name coach (Gruden?) who will want coaching /personnel control and let Beane handle off field administrative matters as the GM in name only.

If he can't attract this kind of coach, he will then hire a more capable GM, who will make their own decision on Rivera
