Hurney, only Clausen supporter on the Staff

GM Marty Hurney is reportedly the only member of the Panthers' front office or coaching staff still maintaining faith in Jimmy Clausen as a potential starter.

According to SI.com's Don Banks, "everyone else in Carolina, and many coaches and personnel men around the league for that matter" believe the Panthers desperately need to find a new quarterback. Hurney's head should be on the chopping block if he's forced to draft a QB at No. 1 overall. He's essentially wasted two second-round picks, having traded this year's to move up for Armanti Edwards last April.

fug Hurney. His head should be on the chopping block for not bringing in any Free Agent talent worth a damn for two years, the Jake Delhomme huge contract fiasco, the Franchising Peppers when we could have traded him fiasco, the Clausen bust, the AE fiasco, the potential Brown bust, the Dwayne Jarrett bust, the Ken Lucas bust... I could keep going...

He's been making big misteps for a few years now. It all just finally bit us in the ass last year.

I was actually a little disappointed he didn't go with Fox. If Rivera wants to make a name for himself, he's going to have to rattle Hurney's cage and by-pass him to get what he wants to make us a winning team again.

True but I don't think Hurney is being ousted for this, nor should he.

Unfortunately Hurney is still the guy making the pick.

Another source within the Panthers FO contradicts that, says that many within the league and within Carolina think Clausen isn't washed up - yet. Also says that the move to draft AE was JRs.
