Are you sure you can handle a new GM taking a few years to 'rebuild' when you can't even handle two losses?


Hurney has had over 10 years to develop something better than an inconsistent, mediocre product and has failed miserably. He has fired lots of people in the process of trying to maintain his own position in the organization He is long overdue for his turn to be escorted out the door.

They have so much money tied up in mediocre talent that it is depressing.

Not signed.

Altho im just 'not signing' because so many people are 'signing'.

Hurney delivered us Cam Newton, he gets a lifetime exemption.

A few years? Falcons go 4-12 in '07, get a new GM and HC then win 11 games the next season. Turnarounds like that happen ALL the time in the NFL.

Just because the current Panthers FO has been stuck in the "stick with what we got, business as usual" attitude for so long doesn't mean that things can't change dramatically if you get the right guys for the job.

There's no reason this team can't be in the playoffs next season. None. I would say at WORST one more down year before we could have a perennial playoff team, again though, only if you hire guys that know what they're doing.

LMAO I'm going to watch this to see how many people are going to sign it. I'm curious to know how many are serious and how many are just venting their fanboy rage on the message boards.


Yeah, I don't see that gaining traction

Get rid of "Mart"!!

I'm sure some nimrod here made it

How many times have petitions had any influence on anything? Ever?

this.

funny to think that this will actually accomplish anything.

why not go out and rent a billboard or make up some fire hurney website or make up some kind of online petition that isn't on some message board....not that any of those options will be any more productive than this silly thread.

If my team made decisions based on fan petitions, knowing how dumb fans are, I'd have to drop that team.

Jerry Richardson needs to get rid of Hurney, wether it's because of a fan petition, his own cognitive reasoning or a mirage of Jesus in a piece of burnt toast telling him to I don't really care.

As opposed to just normal losing?

So with one year's difference we would be using basically the same talent on the field as we have now. That would be talent that Hurney has assembled. Which is it, does he suck or has he assembled the peices for a perennial playoff team?

We don't offer guys the guys we should in the offseason. If another GM is here, he can rework the roster, and pick better FA's. Not the likes of Ajirotutu, Nanee, Colin Jones, Olino Mare, Nakamura.
