I don't understand a single premise you are using to argue for the guy. He wins in the CFL? He owns panthers tickets? Somehow (I have no idea how) he is like Cam Newton? Uh, okay...

So because he is in the CFL that automatically means that he's never scouted players in the US?

He played college ball at Michigan State and has also coached college in the US and also has coached his CFL team in the past to a Grey Cup. Don't think Ross has that kind of a background. I'd say Popp knows a whole lot more than you guys want to give him credit for

Also, Mt. Union could win the Grey Cup.

Competing in an 8 team league with lesser talent, different rules, a lesser pace and nowhere near the complexity of the NFL doesn't inspire confidence in me. Especially not when we have candidates who have 15 to 25 years of NFL experience.

If he were applying for a lesser job where he could work his way up, maybe. As it is, the Panthers are going to be in a highly complex situation over the next few seasons. Given those conditions, do you really want the team being run by someone who has to learn on the fly?

To me, Popp is a fallback candidate. Nothing more.

this guy would be terrible in the scouting department. everyone he looks at will look like a superstar because he is used to poo talent.

Canadian?

Isn't he born and raised right here in NC and has always lived up by Lake Norman? Maybe I am thinking of someone else.

Regardless, his hairstyle makes him Canadian.

How do we know Accorsi's didn't recommend him to JR? As mentioned on the last page, Dimitroff was an Accorsi guy and he had CFL experience

I heard them talking about him on the radio the other day and they were saying how he had a shot because he is a local guy who grew up and lived his whole life here and has a lot of connections in the area and oragnization. Also was saying how he was a season ticket holder, yadda yadda yadda. I remember thinking "Hell, they might as well hire SCP, he fits that criteria".

The guy's resume did sound rather intriguing if nothing else. Would be interesting to see what he could do at the NFL level. (Not saying I would want that experiment to be with my team of course).

My first move as GM would be to upgrade all the toilets in BofA.

Reminds me of a profound song lyric I once heard:
"Hello, my name Jimmy Popp and I'm a dumb white guy.
I'm not old or new, but middle school 6th grade like junior high."
