Wow. A lot happened while I wasn't looking. What are the odds...

Great work, Mr. Scot. Seems like Harriss, like Sternfield for Gettleman, is Abrams' theoretical replacement as an assistant GM, but if Abrams isn't leaving, maybe we can grab him. That'd be great.

guys are going to hire who they know. People will have to get over that, and for the most part understand that familiarity with the other guy (and a common system) is more important than hiring random name that a fan recognizes.

I don't give any credence to the Abrams or Ross idea. I don't see them losing their executive scouts (I read that as national scouts), but maybe a few of the scouts will be up for grabs for a promotion to national.

I did a similar workup here: it's more generic, but gives some reasons why I would want them to do these things.

Given that Gettleman has been a pro personel guy for the bulk of his career, he may try and get some trusted college scouts in here to help on that end if Gregory is gone. They're likely to have a sit down or two or three...you get my drift. We'll see what happens.

Very possible.

The only thing I truly feel comfortable predicting is that Gettleman will bring along people with whom he's familiar, regardless of whether they're from the Giants or one of his other stops. Obviously, over the course of 25 years in a given business, you make a fair number of acquaintances.

I'd love for the Panthers to start using that sort of "pre-emptive apprenticeship" structure that the Giants and some others use. It's good strategy both in the office and on the roster.

Good writeup by the way. I'd agree with those suggestions. The org chart is definitely in need of some changes.

Gettleman isn't known as a cap guy is he??

That's one of the biggest issues no moving forward so I think a specialist needs to be brought in

Another exceptional post from one of the worst posters on this board.

Don't u have some Akron Zips players to "scout" on YouTube?

the guys got a much higher percentage of pie than you do for the number of posts made.

None of our candidates were cap guys. All personnel evaluators.

So does that mean JR is doing the opposite??

Marty = numbers/cap guy & sh1t talent evaluators around him

Gettleman= personel/talent guy & sh1t cap/numbers people around him

???

Everyone's pie was reset on the forum upgrade. IE usernames that are over a year old have built up their current pie in the past year.

Either way, the good thing is that we still get those yellow and red boxes at the foozball gems
