Thread: GM question
-12-04-2007 #1eauclare Guest
This is not a thread about who the new GM should be. I've already gone on record as saying I want Reese.
The bigger question is if Shaw is leaning toward getting one, shouldn't he do it ASAP. BY bringing someone in very soon, you allow the new GM to get a handle on evaluating the current roster. Who needs to be resigned and who needs to be let go. Furthermore, the combine is in February and FA begins in late February or early March.
The new GM needs to have time to build his structure or game plan prior to these events. Now Shaw may be waiting to see if he will have a new HC, but does that really matter. He mentioned that either the current or new HC will no longer have final say in draft decisions. So then why wait on a coaching decision?
The only reason to wait is if he has a current GM in mind. A successful GM will probably not leave unless the Rams offered him a lot more money, which I doubt.
Get a guy in soon that can establish a structure with Sofitil and the current scouting department. Don't bring somebody in at the final moment and then have him have to make rush decisions to get up to speed.
If Shaw is serious about this, a new GM should be hired within the next month.
Re: GM question
Marty Hurney is under contract with the Panther. Have to wait until he is free..
Rams appointed Tony Softli Vice President/Player Personnel. I think we have a handle on our roster. Softli also might get the GM job.
Re: GM questionThe win was against the whiners, but I guess it counts anyway.
Marty Hurney should be happy, the Panthers finally won a home game after more than a calender year.
When Marty Hurney assumed general manager duties in Carolina, the Panthers were coming off a 1-15 season. Five years later, Carolina's 49 victories rank seventh in the National Football League.

Re: GM question
John Fox & the Panthers on the other hand finally won a home game after over a calender year. A front office and coaching staff who bring in David Carr and now Vinny T at QB and haven't gotten Steve Smith any WR help. Let's just say I'm not sold on bringing that kind of stuff here.
The past??????? Aren't all you guys saying what have you done for me lately? Well what have Fox and the Panthers done lately. Not much.
Re: GM questionWell what have Fox and the Panthers done lately.
Your right I missed that shot on the whiners my bad
