This is part of a thing the NFL is doing which they refer to as having "legendary alumni" announce picks.

I guess Hoover is who they found most 'legendary' for us.

Wonder who's 'legendary' for the Jags and Texans.

Of all the Cowboys they could have picked, Charles Haley? :eek:

Sam Madison for the Dolphins? Over guys like Marino, Clayton and Duper? Heck even Zach Thomas?

And Troy Vincent for the Eagles? Really? :confused:

The 'alumni' part may be right, but on some of these, I don't think I buy the 'legendary' :nonod:

Well, objectively speaking, who for the Panthers actually qualifies as "legendary"? :(

Hoover's a good choice, though for a "Mr. Panther" role I might say Mike Minter suits the bill better.

But no argument with Hoover. He's a great guy and I'm proud he was one of ours.

They could have also done Moose

I had the chance after a training camp practice to ask Hoover who his ugliest offensive lineman was. It cracked him up. He was three or four people down from me in line and still laughing :lol:

And yeah, Moose would be a good choice, but he was a player rep for the NFLPA (awkward) :sosp:

Sweet, Hoover was my all-time favorite Panther. WCU alumni, of course. :D

I think this is more of a matter of who they could get to agree to do it rather than picking and choosing who makes the announcements. Legendary Panther retirees: Kevin Greene and Reggie White first in my mind, even though they're not best known as Panthers. They coulda got Mills III too. I think Hoov is about as good a choice as anyone.

For JAX, Boselli would've been a good one - being he was their first draft pick. Jimmy Smith would've been good too, but I'm guessing off field stuff from recently eliminated him from that.

I wouldn't mind seeing Rucker call ours out sometime in the future.

Brad Hoover was awesome! I liked when him and Nick Goings were the junkyard dogs of the Panthers.

Boselli would make sense. Agree on Smith.

I think this is more of a matter of who they could get to agree to do it rather than picking and choosing who makes the announcements.

Thought about that as an explanation. After the stories that came out about him fondling himself in the locker room, I'd definitely have avoided putting Haley on TV at all costs :eek:

Cool. Hoover never got the recognition he deserved outside of our fans.
