Outstanding work MrScot.

Not arguing that other teams use more people than the panthers do, but obviously those websites just publicly list more positions than the panthers do. (The panthers have more than 1 athletic trainer for example). I'm sure there are plenty of scouts that work for the panthers and aren't listed just like other departments only list the directors.

I can give ya a quick "apples to apples" comparison of who they do list.

The Panthers list eight names under the heading of "Football Operations". The Giants list six. However, some of the titles the Panthers include under that umbrella are things like "video director, equipment manager, and head trainer." Not true "football people". Titles of that sort are listed in separate areas of the Giants directory.

Of the five names remaining, one is cap analyst Rob Rogers (official title: Director of Team Administration) and the other is Brandon Beane, whom we know from prior stories was actually a logistics guy.

That leaves only three true "football guys" (GM, Director of College Scouting and Director of Pro Scouting). By contrast, pretty much all of the titles listed by the Giants are football related. Add in that while we know College Scouting Director Don Gregory has people underneath him (around 8 or so based on what I've read and heard) Pro Scouting Director Mark Koncz is a staff of one. Go back to the Giants, look down the page a little and you'll see thirteen people listed with either pro or college scouting titles.

Worth noting that if you move down the list to the "Business Operations" department, there are eleven names listed. So eleven people paid to handle the business end of things, while less than half as many are assigned to manage the building of the team that generates that business.

And regarding that medical staff, Ryan Vermillion does indeed have an assistant trainer who isn't listed. If you browse down to the "medical" section of the Giants page, you'll find they have a staff of sixteen. That includes six team doctors, a team dentist and even a team neurosurgeon.

Bottom Line: It's an organizational structure that not well structured for the goal of producing a football team that can win a Super Bowl.

Koncz is technically a staff of two (Ken Dorsey as of last year) that I'm aware of.

He's got a point that the Giants list their guys, so you know. But, Carolina definitely underdoes it, whether they've hidden a guy or two or not .

Agreed.

Noticed the Giants actually employ a slightly larger coaching staff as well.

Edit: The Giants staff actually would have had another member that I didn't count, Gettleman. His name's no longer on the staff page.

Thanks, Mags. Any idea where he got it?

Beathard I knew about. Dorsey I had forgotten.

The overall headcount is a little higher than I remember hearing of. My general perception was that the experience level among the souting department wasn't as high as it was with some other teams, but I couldn't verify that with absolute certainty.

it would have to be pretty recent for it to be accurate at all. from my understanding the scout team had a massive overhaul recently. i can't remember if it was after the 2010 or 2011 draft it was done. i remember hurney talking about it on the radio well after the fact. not surprising it wasn't publicized when it happened.
