Do We Run This Team?

"why didn't we trade for the Bengals linebacker"
"we've got to add an impact player through free agency"
Adding free agents isn't as simple as having the room under the cap, and signing any and every decent player available. Ya can't just throw bodies to the pile.
The coaches, GM, and scouting department all know what they have to do to improve the team moving forward.
They know who is available. They also have to decide how any player they add will fit with the team.
Rivera kmows defense. He knows what he is doing. Hurney isn't going to get players for the sake of getting players. He's only going to seek out players that the head coach says he needs.
The draft is still ahead of us.
The Panthers don't know who they're going to end up in the draft. Something always happens in the first half of the first round, that has a ripple affect on the rest of the draft.
After the draft, there is bound to be a few more small signings to fill roles that weren't addressed in the draft.
The Panthers have a plan.
I know it's fun to debate the possibilities, but so many I see are being very judgemental on what they feel should or shouldn't be going on.
At the end of the day, we're fans, and we are to enjoy the ride.
I wonder how many of you can even do that.

I agree though, as long as injuries don't plague us like every year we'll be fine.

Posting long posts on my phone suck. Can't read the screen as easily as I'd be if I was on the laptop.
poke fun at that if you wish, rather than respond with something to add.
Don't hurt my feelings.

It's the nature of message boards.
Besides, how boring would it be to log on everyday and see "Gee golly, I sure am excited and on 100% with the signing of Kenny Onatuolo (sp?)" or "I sure am glad Hurney signed Mare and released Kasay. He knows what's best all of the time and I'm an idiot."
He gets paid for a reason, but it doesn't mean he is always right. It makes for good discussion.

I don't know anybody that's perfect. Who is claiming Hurney is?
