Where is Brad Hoover's press conference?....

27 posts in this topic

Why aren't Hurney and Fox making a press conference for Hoover so that they can say how much they're going to miss him and cry their eyes out?

I mean Hoover was only here 3 years before Jake even stepped foot on the field for the Panthers. He's only paved way for THREE 1,000 yard backs in Stephen Davis, DeAngelo Williams, and Jonathan Stewart. Even lesser backs, DeShaun Foster and Nick Goings, got almost 900 yards a year when they started.

So why does a guy who had more INTs than TDs in the past 2 years, and was hurt for a year before that, get a press conference with Coach and GM beside him bawling their eyes out while another guy that has been here longer and did his job well every year he's been here doesn't?

It kind of throws the whole analogies of comparing war to football for reasons why Fox and Hurney were shedding a thousand tears a minute during Delhomme's press conference out the window since the samething didn't happen for Hoover. It shows that they were so blindly loyal to a QB that it affected their decision making process during the 2009 season and that they most likely would've started Jake again first chance they got if he was still on the team. It also shows that JR was the reason Jake got the boot because you know damn well he would still be on the team if it was up to Fox and Hurney.

There won't be a Press conference, Hoover will probably release a full statement in a day or so.

I hope this is Fox's last year, I think its about time for a new coach, I liked the idea of Cowher or Billick but our current front office is in a funk now with their head up their ass

FBs get no love....ever

I can give you 11 million reasons why that is not always true.

Sincerely,

The only FB i've ever seen get a press conference was Leonard Weaver when he re-signed with the Eagles a few days ago. I wish we would give Hoover a press conference to say goodbye but it's not gonna happen.

So much so that he was willing to rationalize the trade of Kony Ealy to the Patriots, which essentially netted him a second-round pick eight slots higher than the third-round pick they included in the swap. "It's a heavy draft and it was an opportunity for us to move up. To you guys, eight spots doesn't seem like much. But to me, it's gold," Gettleman said, via the Charlotte Observer.   Scout's Notebook: Cam must evolve as QB   Free Agency's biggest unanswered storylines   Harrison: All-Under-25 Team   Brandt: Best second-round picks since '12   MJD: Ranking the '17 RB prospects   Players who won free agency   Brooks: Peterson 'just another' RB now   Schein: Each division's favorite, top contender   Rosenthal Why is everyone ignoring Big Ben?   Scouting Report/team fits: Malik Hooker He added: "You've got to give up something to get something. You're not fooling anybody anymore. There's too much film available. We just wanted to move up and get another second-round pick. I think it gives us more flexibility." This was, on the front end, a nice way for Gettleman to distance himself from Ealy without criticizing the dynamic former second-round pick, though it does put the fearless general manager in a precarious position. Rationalizing a trade to move up eight slots suggests there is someone in particular who you are targeting and expect to be there. At the least, it suggests that one of a few people you hope are there can contribute right away significantly. Ealy was not a perfect player, but his ability to get to the quarterback was undeniable. If the Panthers had won Super Bowl 50, there's a chance Ealy would have been named MVP despite playing just a handful of snaps. Carolina already got rid of one exceptional homegrown defensive talent in Josh Norman last year and could see Ealy come back to bite them inside the Patriots' versatile front. Of course, Gettleman isn't afraid of what anyone thinks and has done a nice job getting the Panthers under control since taking over the gig in 2013. He has plenty of equity built up with the Panthers' fan base, but a home run with that second-round pick couldn't hurt. "
