  1. in reality Hurney himself should do the right thing and step aside for new leadership. the charge he was given when hired was to lead the team through the season and identify a candidate to lead them going forward. he said as much in his introductory press conference when hired. even providing for the unique situation with Richardson and the team sale, he has failed on the latter duty. and now a situation revolving around him is directly affecting the schedule for hiring a leader in football ops. a little professional integrity on his part would go a long way towards simplifying the situation and a clear direction for the team going into the offseason.
  2. Best Twitter Reactions

    man I hope this thread has 3,592 posts in it when I wake up tomorrow morning
  3. Yikes

    the rollercoaster of PFF credibility continues
  4. depending on what JR actually did and to whom, his accomplishments and reputation really might not be relevant at all. he can do good things and do bad things, and even do good things while doing bad things. hopefully the investigation will get to the unvarnished truth, one way or another. I think it's a good sign that the story is beginning by the announcement of an internal investigation. JR for all his faults sees himself as a serious man, and this would seem to that. and if he's hurt or exploited someone, including a subordinate (which everyone is, as far as the Panthers are concerned), then I hope he will do the right thing and step down or address the issue to the appropriate degree. I think his actions as a public figure have earned him the chance to do right by the person who raised the complaint. this is assuming more information isn't about to bubble up, which who knows.
  5. please never delete this thread so it can live on as the weakest sauce ever
  6. despite his injuries (high ankles are really difficult to move past in-season), I think he's a pretty tough dude.
  7. Enter Sandland

    yep, and as Rivera said in a video a few days before the draft, "it's going to be hard [for newcomers] to make this team. we're not drafting guys to cut them, we're drafting them to help us win." so it's prudent to consider how a guy like Sandland will fit the team. he seems headed straight for the Brockel/Swole role as 4-team ST guy + goal-line packages. at least to start. then, maybe he'll usurp Dickson or replace him.
  8. Panthers Trade for Jared Allen

    worth noting: this is where that cap space that was "inexplicably" unused in the offseason reeeeeeally comes in handy. $$$ salary.
  9. Panthers Trade for Jared Allen

    I let out a 6-second "whaaaaaat" when I saw the tweet from Glazer. all-in kind of move, depending on the pick (?) they gave up.
  10. Gone Campin...

    breathless descriptions of trai turner vs reserve d-linemen pls.
  11. I see you've got Chris Houston as a goner, which honestly I am a little surprised by. he's got veteran bonafides, and has been doing some work on special teams in camp.
  12. Buh bye Stephen Hill

    good lord I do not care about the guy having some grinders and a bowl in his car. but I don't make the rules. maybe he can say PJ Hairston loaned him the car or something.
  13. hmm maybe I should drive down to Buffalo. *checks passport validity*
  14. Mike Tolbert slimming down?

    Tolbert will never be "slim", in fact I'd say he'd be the last guy on the team to worry about being underweight. he's thick, probably since he was 2 years old. brick shithouse.
  15. let's just say it makes an, ahem, impression on me
  16. I really really miss the "go to first unread post" button
  17. Panthers sign Lee Ward

    watching that tape, the game of football doesn't seem particularly complicated to a guy like lee ward
  18. lots of posts in this thread would make @PFTCommenter very proud. HOT TAEKS
  19. good for JR. if it's that important to him (and I'm glad that it is), then it's absolutely appropriate to take that stand.
  20. what about when Tom is gone, even if Gayle takes the reins do you think that will affect the ability of Loomis to flash big signing bonuses or convert future salary to guaranteed money in restructures as a way to massage the cap? I mean, I don't know if anybody knows for sure, but Benson is still doing quite well financially as far as I can tell, and he's still able to facilitate his money man being aggressive with the cap, which as we know requires cash on hand. good god this is theoretical. that's the offseason for you.
  21. @saints4life25, other saints fans in this thread where are you as a fan at with the loomis situation. yes he's got a good track record in some areas but he also really misjudged some roster decisions this year and had to pay the piper by hemorrhaging cap assets. would you rather this fire sale be done at his direction or a new person? same with the coach i guess. i actually agree that the offense will still be fairly productive without graham but it seems like such a waiting game for the defense to catch up year after year, with the exception of one or two seasons where it all came together. it's not often you see a roster reset like this without cleaning house in the front office and leadership. i mean, i really don't think loomis is going anywhere anytime soon but what is the fan sentiment?
