#2093231 Baltimore Ravens vs Denver Broncos Game Day Thread

Lemme repeat my last statement.

Ladies and gentlemen, John...Fox :lol:

#2093002 Jacoby Jones. Trindon Holliday.

(that, plus going after Holiday would've meant admitting Armanti wasn't getting it done)

Imagine if we'd had a GM that was actually interested in pro scouting when Holiday came available.

#2092308 Beane was never a candidate

Posted by Mr. Scot on 12 January 2013 - 11:06 AM

The "point" is to highlight that some of the media coverage of us has been inaccurate.

Some folks think it's because of deliberate misinformation. Possible. My take though? It's disinterest / apathy / laziness on the part of some of the journalists.

Said elsewhere, when you've got someone who apparently hasn't even bothered to read our new GMs bio (evidenced by his telling a chat patron that Gettleman had never worked as a college scout and not even spelling his name right in the initial article) to me that's a clear indicator that when it comes to covering our team, this guy just isn't putting in that much effort.

#2091616 Beane was never a candidate

Posted by Mr. Scot on 11 January 2013 - 08:13 PM

That's pretty clear when you read this team site article discussing the GM search.

Accorsi helps Panthers arrive at Gettleman

Pertinent excerpts...

Shortly after Hurney's departure, Accorsi – the chairman of the NFL's General Manager Committee – arranged an initial meeting with Richardson, team president Danny Morrison and interim general manager Brandon Beane in Hershey, Penn.

So Beane was at the initial meeting where they talked about what they wanted to get in a permanent GM, unlikely if he were actually expected to be in the mix.

"I have a place in Hershey, so we had an all-day meeting," Accorsi said. "My position at that point was to find out exactly what they wanted. What kind of general manager did they want?

"They wanted a classic, football-oriented general manger, someone who had a background in personnel but also as an executive."

These are the criteria Accorsi was given. Having no background in personnel, Beane would have been excluded from the process immediately.

After the meeting, Accorsi began compiling a list of people that fit the description. The Panthers and Accorsi then discussed the candidates on the shortlist for about six weeks as the regular season wound down.

"We could not talk to anybody with an NFL club until the season was over," Accorsi said. "We discussed the candidates, and the minute they were eligible to talk to us we would start interviewing."

With more than 40 years of NFL experience at his disposal, Accorsi recommended several people he knew well. But he also made a concerted effort to research individuals who he had no prior experience with.

"There were several I knew well, several I worked with," Accorsi said. "I wanted to be completely fair to the people I didn't know and if the process nominated them through recommendations, then I wanted to make sure they were included.

Good info on the process. Clear that Accorsi did his due diligence and didn't just rely on old friends (even though that's who ultimately got the job).

"The list was narrowed and refined and it finally came to the four that we interviewed."

Accorsi flew to Charlotte on Monday, and the interview process began the next day.

That'd be Ross, Dawson, Popp and Gettleman. So no interview for Beane.

No idea where Pat Yasinskas - and later, Joe Person - got the info indicating that he was an option, but it seems pretty obvious based on how events played out that it wasn't accurate. It's possible Person got it from Yasinskas. Guess maybe Yasinskas got it from the same source that told him Dave Gettleman had never been a college scout.

#2091370 The Panthers Have Requested Permission to Interview Hue Jackson

Posted by Mr. Scot on 11 January 2013 - 05:30 PM

Hue Jackson's offensive philosophy revolves around the power running game and a vertical passing attack.

I think there's a name for that approach :lol:

#2091327 Ernie Accorsi thoughts on Gettleman

Posted by Mr. Scot on 11 January 2013 - 05:06 PM

You can go to some people and talk about a player from another team, and they'll go to their computer, look at their notes and give you a good comprehensive report. Dave, you could say, ‘Tell me about the fifth corner in Denver.' He's got a report right off the top of his head.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is a football guy :D

#2090002 More changes to come? Possible

Posted by Mr. Scot on 11 January 2013 - 02:28 AM

We could wind up better off overall.

Reasonable to think we're already better at GM.

Ask me when I know who the new OC is.

A basic look at some potential offensive coordinator options, their connections to the Coryell system and to Panthers head coach Ron Rivera.

Coryell: Has worked under some of the best known Coryell system coaches, specifically Norv Turner, Mike Martz and Cam Cameron.

Rivera: Coached alongside Rivera for four years with the Chargers

Al Saunders, Senior Offensive Assistant, Raiders

Rivera: Another near miss; left the Chargers before Rivera joined

Hue Jackson, Assistant Coach, Bengals

Coryell: Was on the Redskins staff under Coryell disciple Joe Gibbs

Rivera: Coached against him while with the Raiders

Bob Bratkowski, QB Coach, Jaguars

Rivera: no direct connections found

Charlie Joiner, WR Coach, Chargers

Coryell: Both played and coached in the Coryell system with the Chargers

Rivera: Joined the Chargers coaching staff a year after Rivera did

#2089824 Chud Took A Dump On Rivera

Posted by Mr. Scot on 11 January 2013 - 12:27 AM

Taking a head coaching job in the NFL is never "taking a step back".

And Chudzinski definitely wouldn't think so because he grew up as a huge Browns fan in Ohio. This is his dream job.

He's not "dumping" on Rivera because it was Rivera who put him in position to get this job.

Try taking off your homer glasses.

#2088687 Luke Kuechly Is PFWA's Defensive Rookie of the Year

Posted by Mr. Scot on 10 January 2013 - 05:19 PM

Don't know what that clip has to do with Luke winning this award, but I approve.

Not really sure. I watched it four or five times trying to figure that out myself :unsure:

Congrats to Luke. Well deserved.

#2088466 Jon Gruden wanted Panthers job with total control

Posted by Mr. Scot on 10 January 2013 - 03:14 PM

WCO tends to make QBs look better than they truly are.

#2088448 Jon Gruden wanted Panthers job with total control

Posted by Mr. Scot on 10 January 2013 - 03:06 PM

Gruden won with Dilfer, Peyton won with Dungy. (it's also not hard to beat Rex Grossman)

Nuff said

Gruden won with Brad Johnson.

Dilfer was a Raven when he got his ring.
