Maybe we are waiting on

Plenty of sources. Again just rumors like most of what you hear. Google and you'll see for yourself

Chip Kelly has interviews lined up with Philly, Cleveland, and Buffalo.

He's not coming to Carolina.

Yeah people need to get off the Kelly thing.

I wanted him, I still do, but the man will probably already have a job before we even hire a GM. So will other top tier coaching candidates with this many openings.

Start thinking about Tier 2 coaching candidates and ask yourself if they're better than Rivera. I don't think so. The longer this goes on the more likely it is that keeping Rivera with a "playoffs or you're fired" mandate is the best option.

He always drags out GM hires?

That sounds like a specious claim.

As a Falcons fan I see how you'd hope so. Out of those I see the Panthers competing, though I agree who we get is going to want to be here and there are some guys who don't want to be here, Cam or no Cam (sorry to be realistic huddle).

Still though, the Browns? If anything we are a glorified browns. The eagles? Lots of bad cap management like us but our QB is much more promising and on his way up, not down. And their city/people are trash wtf. Buffalo, fans are OK their loyal despite their FOs bas decisions latley we can compare to all that, its cold as balls up really all I got but I if any team comes close I think its Bills, or Eagles if the coach doesn't mind shitty fans.

Still, those aren't exactly the Cowboys, Giants, Steelers, Packers, Bears....

JR is really this FO's biggest turn off if being small market isn't an issue. Yea he's a big one but... the Browns? come on

I said poo, which refers to general poo. JR doesn't make announcments but once in a blue moon, he doesn't notify anyone of the process but rather does all that when everything is said and done. It feels like it is being dragged out because we don't get those details. Not every fanbase does.

Also, Hurney has been fired for a while now...you'd think we'd already have targeted somebody...

What I am saying is people should stop sitting here and waiting for details because we probably won't hear much until everything is already done.

That still doesn't explain the lack of general manager information being withheld from the public and why the process is taking longer than other teams.

Hell our general manager was fired over two months ago, we should be the first one with a general manager.

We still could be.

No one else has actually made a hire yet (coach or GM). All anybody else has is interview permission, same as us. So it's kinda tough to say our process is taking longer. More accurate to say it isn't getting as much national press, but that's not unusual.

Does anybody else find it odd that other teams have multiple interests in coaches but Carolina is only reported to be linked to one interest?

It was all just speculation. There never was any actual 'link'.

You don't really know much about the Panthers....do you?

This team has ALWAYS been very tight lipped when it comes to personnel matters. Just because you are not hearing anything does not mean that nothing is happening.

Some teams are very public....some are not. We are way the fug over on the "not" end of that spectrum.

Oh I a lot about the organization. I've been going to the games every year before they had a stadium

If you guys think that JR would even slightly have a tiny inkling of even giving a brief thought of interviewing someone that didn't want Cam as the QB, you guys need to check into mental health immediately.

Mediocrity does not happen overnight.....

Medicority must be carefully planned and executed- one small mistake and you could find yourself in the awkward position of being a complete and utter failure or a huge success- neither of which can or will be tolerated in Charlotte.

To me, this has become confusing only because of the speculation. Rather simply, we know this:

1. The panthers have an interim GM

2. The Panthers asked to interview Ross and Gettlemen

3. Ross and Gettlemen are not publicizing their interviews

The rest is speculation.

To me, an educated guess would be that Ross or Gettlemen becomes our next GM, assuming they take the offer.

After all is said and done, my guess is we get Gettlemen who keeps Rivera and then everyone will be completely underwhelmed and will complain about the move until the draft.
