Well if this is all Hurney's decision, then I'm sure the anti Cam crowd will be very happy because the Panthers won't be drafting any QB at #1. Of course, that may happen anyway, but I sure hope that Rivera has at least an equal say in the matter.
If the coaches come to him and say, Cam is the guy. We want him. I think Hurney gives them Cam. Rivera says he is considering several players. Then there are trade options that could change Rivera's perspective--if he is 100% Newton. I dunno.. Just wanted this to be about Hurney's decision and how trade offers could change thinking. I think Rivera and Hurney will be on the same page when the draft rolls around, but then I hear about Fox being upset about the Clausen and Edwards picks.
This is not another "hater/hugger" thread, and you recognize that. It is a look at Hurney's dilemma. If we get Cam, I know we might have something special. This shows how we could look at this as a 2-year process, add a second rounder, and still have something special at QB while giving Clausen a second look to make sure it was not the environment or coaching or injuries etc. I think it is the smart thing to do if you get the offer. If we had not drafted QBs last year or they had a chance to develop over time and still sucked, I would not suggest this.
