    Marc Ross?

    Panther fan here.

    So I wanted to ask y'all about Marc Ross, the Panthers are hiring a new GM and we hired Ernie Accorsi (y'alls old GM) to help us look for someone to bring in. A lot of fellow Panthers fans believe that Marc Ross should be our next GM. So I was wondering what you guys had to say about him. Pros and Cons....

    Thanks.

    Well we got a really good rookie in Luke Kuechly and some good vets in James Anderson, Jon Beason and Thomas Davis. So we kind of okay with the LBers for a least another 5-7 years....

    I'd say his strong suits have been: Wide Receivers, Wide Receivers, Wide Receivers. Also at finding talent at RB in late rounds, and a good eye for the D-Line.

    Now I'm not sure how much of a role he plays in Free Agency, but that hasnt been too bad either. Not great, but not terrible.

    Also, it's hard to gage exactly how much of our success with young talent and FA's can be accredited to Marc Ross...based on the fact that he works under Jerry Reese and with Coughlin as well as others in the FO.

    Overall I'd say he would be an excellent pick-up for any team that is in need of a good GM prospect.

    Yep, that's exactly what I was thinking. I don't think you could do any better than Ross when it comes to someone who'd be a GM for the 1st time. Guy's done a great job by the Giants. We don't want him going anywhere, but it's just a matter of time.

    No, I think that's a Reese philosophy more than anything else.

    Accorsi gets big props here for Eli and he should but his record otherwise was kind of average. Ross is pretty darned good judge of talent AND character.
    No one remembers who came in second.
