What's your first move?

Actually now I think about it, my first move would be to take OJ Simpson down off the wall.

 

Before I even got my parking space, my employee ID, found out where the bathroom is, anything. I would get the crew going on taking that down.

Sign Paxton Lynch. He’s gonna start at QB. Also, Peterman is cut.

Hire an interim coach from the current staff.  

 

Then hire a real GM to help me.

Name myself the starting QB.  I will likely be seriously injured.  But every play I can stay alive is one more play that protects Peterman and Allen from injury risk.  This will prove to fans I am committed.  And also that I should be committed.

Demote myself to QB. I wont be good, but I can do better than Nate while saving cap room

Like any competent GM, I'd post a poll asking the braintrust here what to do.  Duh.

Trade Lesean McCoy for maximum value to take into next season, with the second most amount of cap space and 9 draft picks already waiting for us, a third for Shady would get it done.

I would not take the job without a huge 3 year fully guaranteed salary.

 The team has been so gutted and devoid of talent that it is a total lost cause this year. There are maybe 5 NFL quality players on the roster who are not in their final years of playing. Kyle, McCoy, Lorax, Clay, Hauschka and Hughes are on the wrong side of 30 and are near the end of their careers.

 I only see Hyde and Poyer with a possible couple of prime years left in their tanks. Tre is the only bright young star on the team. Allen, Edmonds, Croom and Teller may develop into NFL starters someday, or they may flame out or fizzle like Miller. Murphy may finally come into his own, but is starting so late he would only shine brightly a year or two, even if he does.

Character does NOT win games in the NFL, talented players with drive do. Quality FAs are expensive and historically hard to motivate once they get their golden payday. Tons of cap won’t last long, and can’t possibly fill all the holes. Draft picks after the 3rd round will not guarantee you success or starters. Of course, even first round picks are almost a 50/50 gamble. There are way too many holes to fill in even 2 good drafts.

McBeane’s gigantic egos and their nebulous “process” have so decimated the team of talent that it will take years to build a firm foundation of a winning team. On a team that already was weakened by trying to satisfy Rex’s super ego. Getting all your “own guys” and using older Carolina castoffs does not win championships. Rather than building a system that fits the talent they had, or getting coaches to motivate the talent they had and building up around the foundation they had, they just drastically bulldozed everything they already had, and built idols in their own images. What a huge mess someone will inherit.

What are any of the guys the cut loose doing??? 

 

Last time I checked, not one of them were being mentioned anywhere by any sports media outlets if any kind.

 

This team had no talent outside of a limited few. 

 

The only way to build a successful long term winner in the NFL is to hit the Jackpot with a franchise Qb, then have a stellar "process" aquiring and developing players through the draft, with FA only bringing in that one or two big time player to push you over the edge. 

 

That is the only real winning formula in the NFL, and it can be seen by watching the likes of the Steelers, Patriots, Packers, etc.

I know what I’d do. 

 

Pat DiMarco would be on the the field all the time with Kahari Lee, and I’d pound the rock all day in I-Formation with Chris Ivory.

I would call Terry back and tell him I don't take the job without a guaranteed 10 year no fire contract.

My first move?  Get cracking on the new version of the Whammy Weenie.  Looks like at least a season of gimmicks to put fans in the seats.

Find shady a contender to play for so he can chase a championship while his window of opportunity is still half way open. Then negotiate a new 50 year lease at the Ralph. Yes we would be changing the name Again!

I cut Vlad Ducasse and pickup Alex Boone, I move Groy to RG where he plays better and hope Bodine isn't as terrible as he was in the preseason at C. The OL has got to be tweaked or no RB or QB will be alive after this season.

I tell him to hold for 30 seconds because I’m on line 2 with Brandon Beane from the other !@#$ing thread. 

Agreed!

Nothing...they are set up perfectly to draft high and have tons of cap room next year with a young promising QB
