Don't forget, there is going to be a WR on our team that is just holding a spot until David Gettis is pulled off of the PUP list. Even if Armanti hangs around (which I don't think he will, after our waiver claims), he'll likely be a goner at that point.

I really didn't think Armanti would make the team, but he played himself into the role, I guess. That being said, there are people who have gotten cut from other teams (e.g. Marvin McNutt) who are probably more natural (i.e.,better) receivers.

Like i just said in another thread. I think sometimes he keeps the most disliked players on the team to say "f**k you" to the fans. Hurney knows who the people want out. It's happened before in the past. Bernadeau, Nick Hayden, Dwayne Jarrett, Keary Colbert, etc.... AE and Clausen are at the top 2 of everyone's list to kick out. Yet they made the squad despite them providing no value to the team at all.


Dude, you think the majority of fans want Armanti GONE? Have you not heard the crowd when he takes the field? He's a fan-favorite outside of this message board....and i'm pretty sure Hurney couldn't give a damn who the fans 'want' on the team anyway. His job is to win, not cater to a small faction of loudmouth fanboys. Also - i think its kind of funny that anyone on this board legitimately thinks he is a better talent evaluator than the experts who work with these guys 6-8 hours per day. Really??? When's the last time we cut a guy and he went on elsewhere to become a superstar?

I mean, Hurney all but cut him live on the air with Mike Morgan and Mike Rucker last night and now he's making the roster? I'm really thinking there was something to the whole "Jerry Richardson ordered Hurney to go get Armanti" in the 2010 draft after all and now he's refusing to let Hurney cut him.


No doubt that is the logic.

Get over it. Armanti made the cut because he deserved to make the team. Your grade school super duper back door hijacking did not occur. It's fantasy. This is the NFL. You don't let little Johnny make the team because his dad is a part time coach. It's hard to grasp after all this time and effort expended on hating the guy, but damn it man.

Maybe the Panthers know something about Gettis you don't, are you sure he's coming back think about it. :huh:

6'5 Lamont Bryant couldn't beat out Armanti for a roster spot even with that incredible catch and run with golden arm clausen throwing the freaking ball. I don't understand this. I truly don't see it. Armanti is just not the right guy for this team. It's truly amazing. But that's how this cookie is crumbling at the moment.

They don't think. They grunt and slobber. It's hard to watch their talent evaluation skills just go poof when real honest to God professional football coaches make decisions that don't square with the circle jerk club evaluation.

good point. but i think there is something to be said for the fan's perspective. sometimes coaches get too involved and can't see the forest for the trees. fans, the ultimate equalizer, bring that all into perspective.

There will be a game or two this season where it's fairly obvious by the 3rd quarter that the Panthers are not going to win.

Pull Cam/Smith.

Clausen and Armanti y'all bout to earn that paycheck.

I managers and coaches listened to the fans you would have the broncos of last year and The Golden Calf of Bristol playing qb for you... You want that?

not that coaches must listen to it, but just pointing out it is there for a reason. after all, we are in this business to make money. the starting point for that objective is making fans happy.
