But with this statement comes the biggest disclaimer known to man..."according to sources..."
Nobody knew dick about Rivera's situation until JR issued the press release. What makes you think anything regarding a GM is any different?


Candidates are reportedly set to start interviewing Monday, likely Gettleman first, then Ross.

The other names have only recently come out, but had they declined, yes we would have heard.

"Woddy Johnson brought in The Golden Calf of Bristol.. lol"
How do you know this wasn't the Mike Tannebaum move that got him fired?


because playing devil's advocate doesn't disprove the owner had a major say in bringing in a joke for ticket sales...

Reports out of New York are that Woody Johnson kept Rex Ryan not because of his ability to win, but because he likes Ryan's bravado, the way he talks to the press, etc.

This is the same owner who said a while back that he'd rather see the presidential election go the way he wanted it to than to see his team win the Super Bowl.

What Panther fans believe Jerry Richardson to be, Woody Johnson actually is.

and how successful has that fanchise been?again the owner should have some say, but so should the GM.


Well, many of the recent Superbowl champs have had GMs who didn't hire the HCs.

Beane being a secondary prospect and already in house gives him the edge. See loyalty above. All things point to him being our guy.


I agreed with everything you said, except this. However, the reasons I disagree come from assumptions formed beyond the scope of your argument, so the validity of facts that formed my bias are acknowledged to be questionable.

The word on the street: Panthers want a guy with a strong scouting background.
Triple negative: Not hiring Beane does not mean that they are not being loyal to him.
Extensive list of interviews being scheduled: Would we have so many names on our list of candidates to interview and would we have hired Ernie Occorsi (sp?) to retain Beane?
Experience matters: We have a coach with 2 year of experience, young coordinators. Heck, our team President has limited experience in the NFL. Do we really need a rookie GM from Norwood with limited experience in player personnel to be evaluating talent, brokering trades, and working with the cap?
Beane learned what he knows from Marty Hurney, who was fired in October.
Beane scares me to death.

which ones? Giants, Packers, Steelers, and Saints HC where all hired by teams consisting of the owner but as well as the GM.

"The other names have only recently come out, but had they declined, yes we would have heard."
Knowing this organization as well as you do, how can you say this with any certainty?

Please remember that the only legitimate source for any information is the same guy who claimed not to know who Harbaugh was a couple years ago during the same presser he drew us the pie chart.

Scenario:
JR to Morrison: "Call this guy, this guy, this guy and this guy. See if they'd be interested in a GM job."
Morrison to JR: "Okay, three of the 4 are interested in talking."
JR: "Call 'em back, see when we can get together."

Released: "We're interviewing this guy and this guy."

Bottom line: It serves no purpose to say anything about anyone who declined an interview, and I don't think the front office would do so unless JR told them to. And why would he do that when all it may accomplish is plant a seed of doubt in someone's mind who may be on the interview list. You don't think all these GMs play golf together and talk?

Those GMs were given a HC. They didn't hire their own guy
