Bucky Brooks and Matt Money Smith podcast. Marty doesn't call in at time so they edit in his interview at the end. He talks about how Deangelo and Stew are such good friends. That's nice and all but a GM shouldn't care about that sort of stuff.

It's also worth listening to the first 10mins or so for some national insight.

Why shouldn't he? Harmony in the locker room and outside should be a concern.

A GM shouldn't care whether or not his players get along? Seriously?

Teams with equal talent, one team loves playing together, and one team has problems in the locker room. They're going to be the same?

You don't pay out millions of dollars because guys are "nice" or "good people". We did it with Thomas Davis last year and he could have bent us over this off season. You sign guys because they improve your team and fit the big picture. There are plenty of high character guys out there that make better cap sense. I'm not saying signing J Stew is a bad idea, I'm just saying Marty Hurney's logic is fail.

We've been signing high character guys that love playing together for the last 10 years. We haven't exactly dominated the NFL.

Two best players in Panther history are Smitty and Peppers.

Overall over the course of their careers, neither has gotten along that great with teammates. They are here to play football....who cares if Double Trouble like to chill together on the weekends.

....and don't list an example of one of them liking a singular player or an example of one being nice to someone. Big picture.

Hurney signed Stewart because he's one of the most talented RBs in the league and thinks he can really help this team . It certainly helps that Stewart is nice. But that is not the major logic behind this signing.

Thomas Davis's contract was set up so it wouldn't really hurt us. Davis also wasn't just signed because he was a nice guy, he was one of the top Wlb in the game before injury.
