Zithers2 Posted January 3, 2020 Share Posted January 3, 2020 Well we gotta find a new coach I guess. Eric Bienemy - Not even the play-caller for the Chiefs. So... not really interested. Josh McDaniels - Considering what he did to the Colts and the fact that he's a member of the Patriots, guy seems like a huge snake and probably wants personnel control. No thanks. Mike McCarthy - Coasted on Aaron Rodgers' talent and never seemed to get the Packers to live up to their potential throughout the past decade. Matt Rhule - Not interested in a Big 12 coach or any college coach for that matter. As far as I can tell these are the only coaches we've had interviews lined up with. I really, really want Greg Roman (Ravens OC, former 49ers and Bills OC) or Kevin Stefanski (Vikings OC) though. We also need to begin a search for Hurney's successor. Reading between the lines it seems like we are gonna hire an assistant GM and Hurney is gonna resign once the off-season process is over or take a smaller role in college scouting. I know less about GM candidates but some popular ones are Lake Dawson, Dan Morgan, Brandon Hunt, and George Paton. I'd love to snipe Hunt from the Steelers, who Tepper has obvious connections with. Dawson and Paton were part of the sham interview process before we re-hired Hurney. Morgan is the same one who was our LB back in the day. Was a scout and personnel guy for the Seahawks and now Bills. I'm not sure I want to keep any current Panthers staff, really. John Matsko as a "run game coordinator" could work. Our run game has obviously been great over the years under him and I imagine he helps with some OL coaching, though our OL has faltered immensely over the past couple seasons. Eric Washington is a good DL coach for a 4-3. Who knows if we stick with it under the new regime. Guy really sucked out loud as a DC though and our DL couldn't maintain gap control at all this season so not sure he's cut out for coaching a 3-4. Free agents on the team include: James Bradberry Tre Boston Ross Cockrell Javien Elliott Gerald McCoy Vernon Butler Bruce Irvin Wes Horton Efe Obada Stacey McGee Kyle Love Mario Addison Daryl Williams Greg Van Roten Chris Hogan Jarius Wright As you can see our entire starting secondary outside of Eric Reid and Donte Jackson is out. Our entire front seven besides Luke, Shaq, Short, Poe, and Burns is out. We have no depth at wideout and Greg Olsen probably played his last game for us. OL is in shambles. Whoever steps in has a lot of work to do if they want to make this team a contender next season. Of course if Cam comes back healthy that will help immensely but if he doesn't... oof. @iknowcool @AJ23 @Dingo18287@fretgod99 Not letting me @ anyone else cuz this place died. Oh well.
