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.

I really hope you're kidding. He was making just above league minimum.

Its not what he's making...like I said its about value. He was overpaid IMO. Hows that...

I can say I would be pissed as he was he only had one year left and then he was going to retire. I guess they don't like him as much as Delhomme, too bad.

I understand he was a long time panther guys, but cut the emotional bullshit already.

Fiametta looked like reheated poo when he was able to make it on the field, not that surprising that Hoover is still yelling "WTF"

Especially since he wasn't getting paid much at all.

The NFL is a business...

If any of the other 31 teams think Hoover still has gas left in the tank, then they will sign him...

Sure, it sucks that Hoover was somewhat a local guy and all that jazz, but now he's just causing more problems than he should... It is pointless to question a team's direction just because you might not be a part of their plans... He's lowering himself to the equivalent of a fan at this point...

The guy has blocked for 1000 yrd rushers year after year. He has been a rock on the roster until recently and NEVER had much bad to say until recently. I am totally at a loss for words.

Yes mick eye, your right, he didn't have much to say... on TV...but that's all I am going to say about that. It's obvious you guys can't step out of the realm of emotional attachment to players.

It's going to be hell around here when Smitty thinks he still has it and is no longer worth his value. Hopefully (and most likely) it won't be too soon...

Not my favorite move AT ALL but everything else that's been done has made sense for some reason - I am sure this does too.

Having 3 FBs on the team was kind of odd.

There was no reason he had to be cut at this point. His back did cause problems but who is to say it is degenerative or will continue to bother him. Fullbacks take a lot of abuse especially with run first teams. It makes more sense to have two fullbacks just like we have 2 starting running backs. Sutton was fine for a game but hasn't shown to can do the job day in and day out if Fiametta gets hurt. With our history od injuries at several positions he would have provided a cost effective starter who could be spelled by Fiametta when needed. It wasn't as if Fiametta played all year injury free either. He only played in 10 games and started 2. If he gets nicked we are without a true fullback. Sure we could get by putting guys in there but frankly Hoover wasn't breaking the bank and it isn't like we are going to use the money saved to go out and pick up some high priced free agents.

Like several of the moves we made it made no football sense and was motivated by money only. Hopefully it doesn't come back to bite us, but with our luck the areas where we are thin will be the areas where we will have injuries like we did last year with DTs. He is right that at this point we have done little to improve our team and at this point are worse off than last year with the exception of Moore.

However the draft is approaching and we always seem to be more active in the second half of the FA period.
