I maybe wrong, but didnt the panther lead analytics guy come for eagles?? Pat been legit one of the best hires, hes done so much and no ones knows.....like he was the reason for Scott Fritterer hire. Hes a great go between form Rhule to others. I keep hearing Rhule is a prime ball buster type and most can not deal with him. 

Taylor Rajack, yep.

After retiring from football, Dan Morgan spent nearly seven years as the Director of Pro Personnel for the Seattle Seahawks. There, he worked with new Panthers GM Scott Fitterer. He has spent the last three years with the Buffalo Bills.

According to Rapoport, the Panthers have also requested to interview Philadelphia Eagles assistant director of player personnel, Ian Cunningham, for the assistant GM job.

Remeber when he actually posted here? A few clowns making fun of his concussions drove him away of course.

Met him at a tailgate event years ago. He brought some pizza from his old digs.

Dan's turnaround is pretty impressive. 

He was in a pretty bad state when he retired from football. 

There were some sad stories floating around about him. 

Be 100% honest. If you suddenly got 20 million in tax free cash, would you be alive in 10 days??

We all know that Dan Morgan will get the position. Cunningham and Poles are just being interviewed because of the Rooney Rhule. 

If that's the case then I am very disappointed, no disgusted with this.  Race is not a qualifier for anything and if that's the reason Morgan gets the job the f*ck that.  And you too if that's the way you think.

The only thing that matters he or she is the best person that fits the vision for the job, period.

 I would like to see Morgan back here where he started his career and so many fans have fond memories of his playing days .  He did a great job by all accounts in Seattle and Buffalo - working his way up the ranks of management.  I am going to be disappointed if he doesn't get the job, though I understand Fitterer will hire who he believes will fit best for our team.

Yep..remember that too.  He was cool and very nice to chat with.  I would love to have him back home.

I might be in the minority here but if we can get Ryan Poles I want him. He’s been apart of Mahomes and the Chiefs ascension he’s young and I think it’s a benefit to have an entirely different perspective on things since he’s never worked with any one in the Panthers FO to my knowledge.

    • In the last 60 days how many total hours do you figure you've spent on this website promoting Sam's cause?
    • ...Interesting article. It almost sounds like there is a high level plan that Tepper and the city share for that area. Obviously, who pays for what will be the big fight. https://www.wbtv.com/2021/07/22/records-show-charlotte-lacks-money-new-stadium/ ——————— A WBTV Investigation shows the Queen City’s capacity to contribute to stadium projects is much lower than what’s recently been agreed upon in other NFL cities. Financial records shared by city staffers during a Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority board meeting show that the capacity to take on debt for major stadium construction is somewhat limited by other projects the city has already financed. ———————— “I don’t feel that the capacity is there at the moment in the existing tax structure,” District 7 Councilman Ed Driggs told WBTV Councilman and financial institution veteran Ed Driggs told WBTV he has doubts about the cities pot of money to pay for the deal. “Particularly because we have a pipeline of capital projects that will probably soak up a lot of that of existing capacity,” Driggs said. In addition to future potential projects like Discovery Place and Blumenthal Performing Arts, the city is already committed to $174 million in debt in the Convention Center fund, including more than $100 million for recent convention center upgrades. ———————- Economist Andrew Zimbalist told WBTV that deals between franchise owners and cities that look beyond a specific dollar contribution have proven more fruitful for taxpayers. “Cities are finding it more and more difficult to justify the expenditures as the prices go up in urban areas,” Zimbalist said. “What we’ll do is we’ll give you the land for the stadium. Not only that, but we’ll give you some acres around it for parking lots and we’ll give you some more acres for commercial and residential development and then you can make your money off of those other things that will help pay back.”   That’s not to dissimilar from the plan currently unfolding between Charlotte and Tepper. The City has already reached an agreement with Tepper and a developer for new soccer fields, residential units and commercial enterprises at Eastland. The city is also still negotiating with Tepper around a mixed-use/entertainment district in the area near Bank of America Stadium and the Charlotte Pipe and Foundry property, which could be crucial to the development of a future stadium. Rezoning Pipe and Foundry and using a mixed-use/entertainment district to link it with the Gateway District, home of a future transit center for Amtrak could be crucial to plans moving forward. ———————- “More likely than not, at the end of the day, for the vast majority of these deals, they should not be looked upon as a promoter for the economy,” Zimbalist said. “They’re not going to raise overall employment. They’re not going to raise per capita income, and what you want to do as a city if you want to have a sports team, whether it’s MLS, NFL or NBA or whatever it might be, try to make a deal that is financially neutral.”
    • True that but even if you trade it for later capital, better to get a return on investment.
