The team really hoped one of the young DE's would step up opposite CJ. They didnt and went out and got new guys. CJ himself was even retweeting somebody the other day that was talking about how the young guys were now going to have to step up or go.
Do your job or lose your job. "Relevance" isnt the goal this year. A championship is.
I don't think you quite understand what the word "severe" means. As has been stated, he's right at the average time for a player at his position. Nothing you saw on your television screen with your vast decades of medical experience makes you qualified to diagnose the severity of the injury.
in addition to the irony that those are moves you no doubt defended at that time because Hurney had a Panthers logo on his polo it should also be pointed out that these things are both increasing in frequency as time here increases. As they should. Afterall im fairly certainly the argument your camp put forth every offseason was that he didnt do those things because of Hurney blaming. So which is it? Did he want to make those moves, be just like Hurney, but was handcuffed, or did he not want to do them at all and every time that argument was put forth it was just a stall through the grinder to keep the apologetics going?
