Gotta love how people throw out their uneducated opinions as if they were facts.

People on here love to pretend they know everything about football and team management, so that they can convince themselves that they're hating on Hurney for the right reasons. These people know so little about football that they feel putting the blame solely on Hurney is the safest option because they can't figure out how to explain this team's lack of success and they're afraid of showing their ignorance to everybody.

I'm not ashamed to say that I come onto this forum to learn more about football. I don't know what everyone else's problem is. Some people just have to walk around with this smug idea that they already know everything about everything. Combine that with the need to get angry at every bit of news that comes out concerning this team and you get a bunch of stuck-up, intolerant assholes that feel like they're getting "attacked" whenever other people have differing opinions and simply want to have a good discussion with them.

Nope.

Better be careful using PFF. People get upset when I point out he was worse than Martin last year per them....and has been poo ever since 2008.

I love the Dwan move!

Now, I'm a bit more optimistic about the Dline.

If Beason comes back healthy and ready, WATCH OUT! Big season for Beason, and Kuechly.

unnecessary at any rate.

they cut the weakest UT to make way for a new starter. not sure why this is so hard to accept.

Ok, well they kept the weakest NT then. McClain showed more promise last season than Fua. So, since we got another guy to do both positions, Fua should've been gone. Why is that so hard to understand?

Btw, I like the Dwan pick up. Just don't think the worse guy was cut.

You still don't cut the worst NT on the roster to make room for an upgrade at UT, especially when that would leave us with only one NT. If we had more NTs than UTs and one of them was expendable, then maybe an NT would have been cut to make room for Dwan. It doesn't matter if Kearse "can" play both positions, Rivera sees Kearse as a UT. If you want to add a new UT and you have an expendable UT on the roster, then you cut the worst UT to make room for the new addition. It's really that simple. Convince yourself that this move makes sense because it does.

There must be more to this than just his play. No way they give up on him, based on play alone, so soon. He didn't even finish his rookie season, and Rivera had some good things to say...

Fua might or might not be better than McClain. But if we cut McClain over Fua, then it has to be a work ethic issue IMO. If Fua shows up day in and day out trying to improve, and McClain shows that he is not working hard enough to improve. Then why cut Fua to give McClain a roster spot? People say it takes 3 years for a DT to develop in the NFL. So this is year 2 for Fua. I honestly believe that Fua has a better work ethic and shows he cares about improving, McClain must have shown RR that he doesnt care enough to be better.

Whatever the case, if RR is still going to support Fua, then so will I.

the worst UT was cut. it apparently doesn't matter that kearse can play both positions to the guys making the decisions.

they did the move that kept them balanced and better at the same time.

''Terrell played well in spots for us last year but every year you have to be the best you can at evaluating players,'' Panthers general manager Marty Hurney said. ''It was just a lack of consistency plus the fact that we had an opportunity to get a guy like Dwan Edwards.''

Hurney called Edwards ''the ultimate pro'' and a player with tremendous work ethic.

Coach Ron Rivera was pleased with the move and feels it will be an upgrade for the Panthers defense.

''Dwan gives us something we didn't really see in training camp and that is a guy who's a dominant force at the three technique,'' Rivera said. ''We had a couple of guys that were young and learning and trying to develop and come back but didn't field what we were looking for. Dwan is a big physical guy who's explosive off the ball and is a vertical rusher. And that's what we're looking for.''
