I personally do not think Hurney is a bad GM at all, I just don't think he is all that great. I do think he has the capability of putting together a team that wins but I feel like he's really trying too hard to continually "build for the future through the draft."


Again, I don't think fans realize that every GM has to have that kind of mindset. The way the talent distribution is in the NFL, it is extremely hard to be able to field a team with excellent talent on both sides of the ball while actually being able to afford said talent. Premier players are so hard to find that anytime a team develops a good player they are often a free agent and command huge contracts on the open market, meaning they either have to tie a lot of money into that player or have someone in the pipeline ready to replace him. That's why the "building through the draft mantra" is so ingrained: free agency has made acquiring talent very difficult unless you are literally only a piece or two at the most from a Super Bowl. There are also no guarantees with those high-priced additions (see: Philadelphia, 2011.)

is anyone is actually suggesting that the OP is wrong in assuming that hurney and the coaching staff are better equipped to manage the team than the average huddle poster?

the packers are the only team in the nfl where shareholders have (limited) administrative power on the team.

i imagine many of those shareholders are fans

You've posted up some the last couple of weeks. Previous to that you have a two year hole where you have no posts on the Huddle.


I was actually on a different Panthers forum that a friend of mine started, as a co-mod, but he passed away last year and we merged into /r/panthers on reddit. I may not have been posting here but I've been active in the Panthers fandom every year I've had internet access.

I am as upset as the next guy that this teams defense is as crappy as we thought it was going to be at the start of the season

I have never thought that the Panthers were going to the playoffs this year. We do not have the talent or veteran leadership that it takes on defense to win games.

At first I predicted we would win 6 games. I still hold to that.

We knew this in the preseason.

I think it's amusing that some of you are surprised that we are losing as if you thought that the Panthers were supposed to be some playoff team the year after 2-14. We are rebuilding. That's what happens. It's a process.
