I think the Panthers new GM will be one of the 6 mentioned in the Observer article. If I had to guess I'd say it'll be Gettleman because Accorsi's been trying to get him a GM job for a while now.

I know Ross is interviewing today.

Wondering if the previous ties Ross has to Rivera and Sean McDermott will factor in. Having ties to a coach who's expected to be on the hot seat could be a double-edged sword.

To follow up on Gamble, looks like he tanked his Jets interview:

After three interviews with the Jaguars, Falcons director of player personnel Dave Caldwell has yet to be hired as the General Manager in Jacksonville. Instead, he’ll interview a second time for the G.M. job with the Jets.

So what’s going on? Glad you asked. (Even if you didn’t.)

As we hear it, both teams want Caldwell. But one league source says that Caldwell and the Jaguars had a financial gap that couldn’t be bridged, which has prompted Caldwell to explore more seriously the opportunity in New York.

And the opportunity in New York has arisen for Caldwell in part because, as we hear it, Tom Gamble’s interview with the Jets didn’t go well.

For Caldwell, there’s a chance he overplays his hand and ends up staying at Oregon. I mean, Atlanta.

Gotta think that the first interview wont be the last here in Charlotte. I know the consensus here is that everyone wants Ross, the problem being he is the first interview we have. Unless he really shines in the office with JR i don't see us hiring him today and we have too many interviews for him to wait for a call back. Hope I'm wrong though.

Ross satisfies the Rooney Rule, so technically once he's interviewed the team is free to hire whomever they want (obviously including him).

But I agree that they'll probably do their due diligence with all viable candidates.

Personally, from what little I know about each guy I really like Gettleman the best. Everywhere he has been he has been a part of a successful franchise. That being said, Ross seems to be a very hot commodity around the league, and his youth is obviously a plus. I would be satisfied with either.
