The Carolina Panthers are not planning on waiting to the end of the season find their next GM and they have hired a consultant to help with the search. The Sports Dump was able to get a hold of the questionnaire that the firm is using to qualify general manager candidates. Here is a sampling of the questions.
- If a local FCS school’s most electric and popular player is rated as a 7th round Pick or Undrafted Free Agent on draft day, you would? a. Draft him if he is there in the 7th Rd, b. Trade a 2nd Rd pick and take him in the 3rd Rd, c. Leave him alone like the rest of the league would.
- If there is a Notre Dame QB on the draft board, what would you do? a. Trade up and draft him in the 2nd Rd, b. Remember he is a Notre Dame QB and take him off your board.
- How would you treat the core of your 2-14 team? a. Sign them to big contracts that get your boss laughed at the NFL owner’s meeting, b. Trade some of you pieces for depth and draft picks.
- When your 34-year-old QB turns the ball over 6 times in a playoff loss, what do you give him in the offseason? a. Pink Slip, b. a 5 year/42.5m Contract, c. Stomach Punch.
If you think you answered the questions better than Marty Hurney did, you may have a future as a NFL General Manager.
