Yas NFC south update, "I will be back shortly with analysis on this move" (as soon as I am done reading the huddle)


I ran it through Google Translate. It came back with this:

I'll be back just as soon as I can figure out a way to explain how I was actually right about Brandon Beane being a serious candidate even though it looks like he wasn't even interviewed.

FNZ guys say they're hearing (unknown from where) that Brandon Beane won't even be employed by the Panthers much longer.

Makes me wonder if perhaps Beane was the guy telling people that he was a candidate.


He was never guaranteed a job under the new GM, JR told him that when he got the bump up to Interim GM. Like I said in the other thread about Hurney. He ran a thin and lean front office, because he did some much work on the personal side of things and on the other side was Beane. They did the work that teams usually hire 12-15 people to do. That's just the way Hurney wanted it structured, expect lots of news once the press conference is over on new staff hires in the front office on both personnel and operations.

That's news I'll welcome.

Glad we got the most qualified guy.

I wonder his long it'll be before the fans turn on him.

I predict the first week of free agency.

Some good news and a reason to be optimistic is just what we needed right now. Things are going to be okay. This is what I am repeating to myself.

um people usually retire around 65. you seem him doing this into his 70s?

and no arrogant little sh*t


Easily, if he wants too. This isn't like your typical corporate job. Plenty of FO people, and coaches, work well into their 70's in the NFL.

I remember thinking as he was being interviewed "never underestimate the power of 'old man' bonding" :lol:

I predict pantherclaw turns on him the moment he starts cutting dead fat from the previous coaching regime and starts building a modern NFL roster devoid of over paid runningbacks

Bad hire, but then this is the Panthers.

He'll be collecting his pension in three years. Hardly the man to steer the ship in the long term. Gonna be going through this process all over again soon.

young decisions are made by every GM.

I don't let it affect me as it does others.

:lol:

Another likely consequence is that autocorrect will cause numerous people's posts to name our new GM "Dave Gentleman".

He is a year older than Bill Belichick, where are the calls for Belichick to start collecting his pension?
