In Topic: Question for couch coordinators...

Today, 01:02 PM

I don't claim to be an offensive couch guru but I will say this I never want to see cam under center on a QB sneak with our current oline when the entire stadium knows what's gonna happen!!!! Put that man in shotgun let him pick a hole and either go up top for it or use his 6'5 frame to get it, they take away so much momentum putting him under center on sneaks!

In Topic: My biggest worry about Gettleman

Today, 11:01 AM

I might get into that at some point but it's a larger discussion.

Will say that I've never been a big fan of Mark Koncz (director of pro personnel).



I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks he should get the shaft or even knows who he is....you make some very good points....Gman is walking a very thin line ecspecially in today's NFL with the CBA battles

In Topic: My biggest worry about Gettleman

Today, 10:07 AM

Since arriving in Carolina, Gettleman's repeatedly shown he's not afraid to cut any player (Steve Smith can attest to that). He's been described as ruthless, all business, not giving a crap, etc. It's a complete 180 from Marty Hurney, and those of us who wanted a 'football guy' in charge for years are very happy to see it.

But what about when it comes to staff?

The coaches, scouts, and front office people in place now are largely the same people who were in place when Gettleman arrived. He stated at that time that he didn't want to be the guy 'that just came in and fired everybody' which is admirable.

But what if there are some changes in staff and front office that actually should be made?

What if Rivera, a guy that Gettleman seems to enjoy a great working relationship with, isn't the right guy to lead this team?

We all see his ruthless "business only" approach to the roster and expect that to apply in all areas, but so far it hasn't. Truth be told, I think there are some staff, front office and (probably) coaching changes that could stand to be made and might improve the team. But to date, there are no indications that such changes are being considered.

Is it possible Gettleman has a dichotomy in his mind: One standard for the players but a different standard for those with whom he works directly? I have to think that'd be a pretty bad mindset to have if you want to run an effective organization. If you really want to hold a standard of "perform or you're gone", then it has to apply to everyone, not just the guys on the field.

So the big question in my mind right now: If this season does indeed wind up being an utter disaster and the best option for improvement isn't necessarily just making changes to players only, will Gettleman pull the trigger?

You tell me.


Serious question, not trolling, what changes in FO/coaching do you think should be made and what direction would you like to see him take in terms of mindset and philosophy with the replacements?
