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

    • Yeah really dumb idea. Star players will be getting thrown out for incidental contact that the ref "misunderstands" as a helmet shot. The solution isn't adding more rules or "being stricter" so to say but enforcing the rules that are already established down the middle. Our games are evidence enough that the refs suck but damn I got tired watching other teams play and see the game decided on either bullshit flags or lack of flags. If anybody needs to be punished more it isn't the players but these POS refs the league can't get their heads noses out of the asses of. Always an excuse or some convoluted reason why the refs were right. I actually heard the announcers calling it out tons of these obvious blown calls and yet still the league stands behind the refs like idiots.
    • First I got to say, damn, people trying to instantly make us the most hated team in the league, even over the Patriots aren't they lol. With all the hate Cam already gets then add Kap even if briefly, oh lord I'd hate to picture it. Yeah that first play is what stands out to me the most. I'd expect even a rookie QB to make that read and throw the ball instead of handing it off. That drive ended up in a safety where as if he throws it to Torrey Smith it is easily a 1st down and possibly a TD as he only has to beat one man. I don't even see Kap look around any in that clip so even more so it feels like he gave it away that it was a run play and the Rams read it like a book. I don't feel like we need him nor do I feel like he is better than what we have. As for his protest, I didn't like what he was doing when he was kneeling but hey he had the right to do it. I personally think him putting his money where his mouth was, was a better way than just kneeling and I commend him for doing so. To be honest the 49'ers have said they would welcome him back. Let's not forget he would still be with them had he not voided his own contract. Somebody will sign him though I just don't see it as a starter which is what he clearly wanted to try and be by voiding with the 49'ers.
    • I feel like this is some kind of guilty admission lol and you should feel bad for voting for that Lunatic / traitor president of ours.    But guess what, you will get a chance to redeem yourself in 2020 with more information about the disgraced president  coming out every week.
