I still feel I have some football left and I want to give it a shot if a team will give me the opportunity,” Hoover said. “I’d still like to be there but with the changes they made, it looks like they’re putting themselves in a good opportunity for failure.”

If I had been playing bad or Tony had been playing better than I did, I’d understand it a little more. But that wasn’t the case. I think it was a financial decision for the Panthers.”

“From what everybody’s been telling me, they’re not going to make any moves until after the draft,”

I'm not... he's always been one to speak his mind... now that he's outside the organization, he can really speak it.

A bit of sour grapes, but who can blame him.

Agreed.

He is unemployed and is bitter about it. However, I do think this one was a financial move. You invested a high pick in the best FB in the draft. You have to get those guys on the field. Hoover has struggled with injuries the past two years....including his back.

I agree with most of the cuts, but cutting him was a huge mistake. Can't really blame him for any anger he has.

I didn't see it as a huge mistake. Not a endearing move, especially from the fans view point. He is seeing an increasing amount on injuries in the later years of his career playing a position that wears on a player

I'm sure the Panthers tried everything in their power to make the split as amicable as possible.

I mean the guy's right. This is a bit of a risk we're taking this season in more than one way. We're either going to come out of it really well or really bad. I don't see a middle ground here. Maybe we'll re-sign him because he's really the only player I was truly upset to see gone.

a good friend of mine at church is pretty close to Hoover and his family, and talked with him about things about 2 weeks ago. he is pretty upset with the fact he had made it clear to them that his intention was to play out the rest of his contract, 1 more year i believe. then he was willing to retire and hand over the torch so to speak. so i think he feels a little betrayed by the organization.

hate to see him go, he was the best guy for the job based on last season. lets hope fiametta takes the challenge seriously

he was the one panther i was actually upset to see go this offseason. he still had some gas left in the tank. they should have let him finish his contract.

an interesting thing to see would be if fiametta gets hurt and hoover hasn't signed with anyone, would he be willing to make a deal with us or would he be insulted so badly that he wouldn't...

agreed.

tough decision to make but in the long run it was the best for the club.

time to move on. i'm sure hoover will move on as well. probably will sign with the saints and get hurt and retire. i don't really care, though.

Hoover's back is messed up. I doubt he could make it through another full season (he didn't this past one). The guy is more than solid when he could play but sometimes you have to move on.

Of course it was a financial move Hoover was extremely overpaid and he NEEDED to be cut. I never liked him,he is a very whiny person. Its not about playing better than Hoover its about being comparable at a third of the price, its about being efficient. Cutting Hoover is a great move. As said, they probably offered him a more than fair contract for what he was worth considering his history and age.
