I am a bit worried about the tensions between the players and the front office this season. If players see these moves as simply preparations for a lockout (true or untrue), they may and will resent it. How hard will a player play for a boss who is sticking it to them? Not very.

Do you feel damage control needs to happen at some point this offseason? Publicly or in the film room?

I do think that Beason, Moore, & Smitty need to rally the troops and get their mind right. Especially Beason cuz the defense is gonna need to be confident and focused even more with such a shake up up front.

i think the only players who may need damage control are the new "veterans".

i think the younger less experienced simply see an opportunity.

what happened to you "officially loving this off-season" ? :D

anyways, it's obvious this isn't sitting well with some of our star players(DWill, Chris Harris) but you know, they just lost some of their good friends. when it comes down to it, they're smart dudes and know this is a business. they'll give it their all, and if they don't I'm not sure I want them in a Panthers uniform anyways.

Could be troubling for sure. Have a good season save Fox/Hurney's job, tank the season and a new FO comes in...

Depends on what happens in the film room.

I wasn't really worried about the cuts until hoover. That was pretty extreme and I don't think the players liked it. Hoover was still pretty good and just didn't deserve that. His salary wasn't big and he was still pretty skilled. Fiametta hasn't really shown that he can take over yet. I don't see why they cut him. He was injured some this year but I didn't see that as a such a big deal.

agreed. the release of hoover was a big surprise, especially considering his past couple seasons were amongst his best.
