The article didn't go into details about all of the late round bust Hurney drafted during his time here. You earn your money as a GM with late round picks. So far Hurney has been a complete failure in that department.

Gantt's take on this article via twitter:

"Been asked about Grantland Hurney piece. I think lacks context in spots, but it's what you get when you fart in church."

"lacks context" sums up my feelings about it.

What do you expect from the Charlotte media? I lost complete respect for them when they trashed Keyshawn Johnson only AFTER he was cut. Where were all these Keyshawn is a clubhouse cancer articles while he was playing?

When Fox was fired I had hoped and said they should have gotten rid of Hurney, too. Article seems to indicate JR didn't want to pay Hurney's salary and pay another GM too (which I can believe after JR's comments about paying out Fox and another head coach too, dooming us to a lame duck season). Yippee.

Yeah, after reading all of the decisions presented in the article, I got a little sick to my stomach. How does this guy have a job still?

Yeah, JR is a crotchety old miser; Hurney isn't qualified to wipe his own ass, and Rivera seems to be unsure of where he even is on gameday. A trifecta of glory if there ever was one! Go Panthers!

While I don't doubt that JR didn't like the idea of paying two coaches salaries for a year, I wonder how much he liked paying Jake to QB the Cleavland Browns, or Williams to be underutilized as a RB or any of the other numerous examples of terribly expensive decisions noted in that article.

Point being, JR would be miles ahead right now if he just cut his losses with Hurney and they parted ways.

A new GM might not have a lot of leeway until some of these contracts run their course, but in the meantime the Panthers can start the healing process and not worry about more knuckle headed contracts hitting their bottom line.
