Why Clausen and Edwards are Panthers

A 3rd QB is a necessity. The league recognizes that and doesn't count the emergency 3rd QB as part of the active game day roster. He is under contract and has shown the coaching staff enough to allow them more time to focus on depth at other positions. I mean... really? Are we really going to be boo hooing because we didn't hit up free agency for the poor man's Cam to back up SuperCam and Dr. Anderson? Jeeeeeesus.

Not about them. Big picture. Drafted players carry more weight and are given a longer leash....it is how Carolina gets to boast they have more drafted guys on their roster than anyone else. Sounds good. Makes their drafting sound better as well.
Sounds good to who? Who is Hurney trying to boast to and what possible benefit does it provide?
The fans? They know Clausen and Edwards are busts. Unless you think the vast majority of them will turn agianst and protest Hurney when he can no longer boast, then there is no need or reason to keep them for bragging rights.
The FO? They are far too smart and expirenced enough to belive the false logic that having tons of players drafted means you did well. Hurneys job does not hinge on wether he releases a pair of backups, they already know there bad.
