Ok, then they wouldn't be here and somebody else would have paid them. But we would have precious cap room. Just like the Bobcats.

steve smith? getting paid for the being the best receiver in the game? pretty sure he deserved it.

beason is prolly the 2nd best ILB in the game right now, I'd say he deserves it.

if we didn't pay CJ then someone else would have and we would have NOTHING on the dline.

gamble has always had the talent of what we paid him, Foxy's scheme just didn't work with him as effectively. gamble is a man to man cover guy (a la revis island) and just showed us why we pay him big bucks.

there are 31 other teams in the NFL that would be ecstatic to have players like this on their team and would easily match our offer, or pay more.

the only true instance of overpaying i saw over the last few years would probably be deangelo. i think we intentionally overpaid him to make up for his '08 season and to help out cam.

They said they weren't going to big players in free agency. They normally are not, as it is not part of the teams plan, from the owner on down.

Sometimes it seems like most of the biggest whiners here were in grade school in the 90s. Back then, we played a lot in FA, and got burned. Richardson doesn't like it, and that attitude is reflected throughout the organization.

This is due to the inability of the FO to use FA accurately and resourcefully.

Plenty of teams get great deals in FA. Hurney sucks at it plain and simple. He has weaknesses. Can't draft a WR or DT. He needs to realize this and spend more time trying to get a good FA deal. As we saw last year there was PLENTY that were a good deal and didn't turn to poo.

Don't blame using FA as the bad aspect here, it's only bad if you can't bring in the right players which the Panthers had trouble with.

I am not whining at anything, for me the proof is in the pudding. I hate cliches but it's true. If Hurney formula was working why have we not been able to win with it? When we were a force several years ago FA helped up quite a bit and we haven't utilized it since.

half you people in this thread really didn't read a damn word he said did you?

always a dick measuring contest on the internet i swear...

I understand what you are getting at OP. You don't want VJax, or Mario, or any elite talent like that, you just want guys who are considered marginally better than Munnerlyn, and Fua, and NaNee, etc., the kind of guys we signed for our playoff run in 03.

Which is what Hurney tries to do.

the problem i have with hurney's philosophy is that if you dont hit on almost all your draft picks, you can really screw yourself.

I agree...Hurney is a coaches GM. He drafts who the coaches want to a large degree.

With one exception.....the 2010 draft was a pure Hurney draft. He had no coach to draft for. It brought us such studs as Clausen, Armanti

It also brought us LaFell, Gettis, Hardy, and some depth in Stanford and Pugh. You got to take the good with the bad.
