    I liked Barron, but I greatly preferred either a DT or a shutdown CB.  At the time, I thought both were a greater need than a safety.  Then again, I didn't realize at the time how truly horrific Nakamura was gonna be.

    Hurney almost always made a solid 1st round pick.  Most Hurney 1st rounders that didn't work out were due to durability issues, not on field ability.  It was his inability to hit after the 1st round that made him an overall poor drafter.  His 2nd round failures are pretty unreal.  Most teams do better with UDFAs than Hurney did with 2nd rounders.

    I just can't believe how well hidden his issues were in the national media leading up to the draft.  Everyone was reporting him as pretty much a squeaky clean kid.  Evidently some teams knew he had some issues and did some digging into it including one team hiring a PI to hang out in his favorite bar to figure out how often he was in attendance, but by and large it simply wasn't reported on in the media.

    I wanted Poe, Gilmore, or Brockers.

    Yeah, given some of the Hurney drafts, I have a hard time mocking another team for draft failures.  Just look at 2011.  Hurney nailed the #1 overall pick, but then he completely shat the bed.

    The national media has always done a pretty terrible job of covering the Panthers.  The OL so far looks like the best OL that we will have put in front of Cam yet.  The WR corps on the other hand... oh wee mayne.

    Every GM in the league values QB > DE/DT.  Every single one of them.
    Now, there are definitely some GMs who would take Watt > Cam, but those GMs already have franchise QBs.

    I personally think that J.J. Watt is the best individual player in the league, but there's no way I'd trade Cam for him.  No way.  It's a QB driven league.  You either have a QB that allows you to compete or you don't.  As much as the Texans love Watt, I bet they'd trade him straight up for Cam Newton if the opportunity presented itself.

    Our lack of disclosure regarding injuries is frustrating for a fan, but really there's nothing to gain from it for the organization.  Lots of teams handle injuries like this.

    I hope we've had some medical staff turnover since the days when TD's and Beason's injuries were badly mishandled.

    Now that you mention it, I haven't heard either.  I would assume he has unless they were waiting for swelling to go down.  But surely by now he's already had surgery I would think.

    It's early season for a Rivera team.  We haven't gotten off to a fast start during his coaching tenure yet.  Even in our 12-4 season, we started out 1-3.  Hopefully this is the year that changes, but I'm definitely not overlooking the Jags.

    He was a disaster for the Titans.  He lost a position battle the future HOFer Byron Bell.  That tells you everything you need to know.
    I made a thread about this a few minutes ago over in the general NFL forum.
