Do We Run This Team?

I struggled to find a good topic for what I have said below....that being said, here it is.


"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 have similar sentiments. Rampant speculation is a lot easier than just working with the things we do know, like the players that are here and how they can improve or be utilized.

Just curious, have you been drinking?

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

Not yet. Although a drink does sound good.
Maybe more.

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.

I get the gist of your post, but honestly, if we didn't come here to speculate, discuss, and debate who has the bigger Internet Armchair General Managing ******* then there wouldn't be much going on here.

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 can't do long posts on my phone. I type them, then I'm afraid my post will look like poo and just go on with life. It's a sad world..

Still plenty to speculate on.

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

Yeah, the guy that got the team semi ready despite the time constraint, the guy that picked the future of this franchise, the guy that is about to turn this defense around with the return of major figure heads that weren't here due to injury last year...

OMG Beason was hurt!!! Thomas Davis is not reliable, for some reason you all think Ron Edwards is gonna come in and save the day, he's not. He's coming off age and already near the cutoff for DT's, he never was impact player.

I never said don't criticize.



most you act like the only thing you know about football what you do on Madden.

Then when some doesn't agree with you, now your being told not to criticize. Gotcha.

If I posted about running the team like I played madden (if i was still 16 and played madden) I would urge Hurney to start filling the panthers roster with create-a-players that had 99 overall ratings, which is what most people who play madden but not online do

this is just another preachy string of posts by soapboxclaw

I don't sit around with my friends playing couch GM, bitching about all the moves of my respective sports teams. That's why I come on here is to discuss anything Panthers related.

If they missed on a draft pick, we can and should talk about it here.
If we think Newton will have a sophomore slump, we can and should talk about it here.
If I feel Deangelo Williams contract will hinder the franchise for the next three years, I can and should talk about it here.
If I feel like Cam should be on the cover of Madden, i can and should talk about it here.
If I feel like the Panthers should get every single free agent available, I can and should talk about it here.

If I have been wrong this whole time about the purpose of a Panthers messageboard, please let me know and point me in the direction of where I should be going to discuss these various topics. It would truly help, because in my real life daily conversations, the Panthers come up in the convo zero times, so I have no where else to go talk about this stuff.
