DA wouldnt fair much better. He would still have to do a fake read option fake for a pass play, that automatically takes 2-3 seconds which puts you behind the 8 ball. You only have 1-3 seconds before nfl lineman are on you.

As long as Hurney and Rivera (along with his staff) remain, I have zero optimism for significant long term improvement. And until Richardson dies, I have zero optimism we will replace them with competent people if we even can them in the first place. We might get the occasional hot streak and win a few games with them, but we will never be legitimate contenders.

I don't want to agree but I have to. This team has a lot of flaws when you are looking at personnel, Hurney has made some bad decision and they are all starting to show. If the Panthers don't get at least 6 wins this year I think Hurney will be shown the door. If this happen then it would put Rivera in a tough situation and new GM could bring in his own guy so their is a good chance if Marty is gone Rivera could follow. We have to get this things right as a team because just being honest I don't see any improvement from last year. You at least wont to see some improvement but I have spotted none. Its depressing if you a Panthers fan because we all want to win games and see our team succeed it's unfortunately we have to go through this.

Add a DT and FS by the draft to this Defense next year and we're going to be better than a lot of people think.

1st: Star/Hankins/Jenkins/Short

2nd: Lester/Jefferson/Vaccaro/Swearinger

I honestly don't know why so many people blame Hurney for this mess. We have the talent to win. The big problem is the coaching staff, IMO. Do we have holes? Sure. But we also have a damn solid young core of players put together by Hurney.

If he is fired, I don't want to hear everyone bitching the first time the new GM misses on a 1st round draft pick...

I would be willing to give Coach Rivera more time if things were different but this is not a winning stile of football. Last year he gets a pass for the lockout but this year it is all on the coaches and Hurney. I don’t dislike Hurney like some on here but I believe it is time for a new direction and you can’t do that without cleaning house. Let’s hope that JR sees the light and brings in a staff that instills pride back into the Panther nation.

Wow if Zod is saying this season is shot than it really must be over...

It really doesn't look like Rivera is the guy that will get us a Lombardi trophy. I hope they do something fast because this team DOES have talent.

We are one more top 10 pick away from the promise land...

Sophomore slump, people. Chill out. The future is still bright. Rivera, Chud, and Cam can get it going on (and, maybe Derm...I don't know). I would have never thought that even a level-headed Zod would go the way of the Huddle fringe. Let's get some more talent in here next year at key positions and hope that Gettis and Hogan can make a difference. We will be alright. Barring a Cowher (who isn't coming to Carolina) or a Gruden, I really don't see upsetting the apple cart. Yes, the apple cart. We just need to change a tire or two. We will be the pride of the market once everything comes together. You'll see.

    • Calvin Pryor sucks he's getting cut at some point they just drafted two guys that can disguise their blitz looks as both Maye and Adams can do a lot of the same things. Jets safety's are going to be beastly, and it's not like their front is bad either with Richardson and Wilkerson but I don't even know who is playing QB for them
    • Some of you may remember that I'm a banjo player and studying classical guitar and music composition at East Carolina University. This was my senior year and for my senior composition recital I composed a 40 minute chamber opera. I heavily borrowed from traditional folk songs from The Anthology of American Folk Music (good composers borrow, great composers steal - Igor Stravinsky). The idea was original to be about a 20 minute telling of the story from The House Carpenter, but after researching the history of the ballad, I decided to do a telling of the Scottish Daemon Lover version of the story and mix elements of other ballads into the story. I used a lot of melodies from the ballads that I used, though a lot of times you'll have words from one ballad, mixed with the melody from another. It's a large thing so I'm giving a link to download it from dropbox. I hope some of you are interested enough to listen. If you're not, who can blame you, move along and enjoy your day. The Daemon Lover Below is a description of each scene. Act 1
      Scene 1
      The House Carpenter is building a cabin in the mountains win a demon comes to see him. He says he must give himself or one of his family as a sacrifice. The House Carpenter says to take his wife, because she has no ability to make money for their children. Scene 2
      Jane Reynolds is alone at him and tells the story of her long lost love, James Harris. The House Carpenter returns home and tells her that he has to go out of town on a business trip. Jane Reynolds tries to convince him to stay, but she is unsuccessful. Scene 3
      Jane Reynolds is alone at home when the demon comes to fetch her disguised as her lost love, James Harris. He convinces her to go away with him and leave her children with the House Carpenter. Act 2
      Scene 1
      Less than 2 weeks later the demon and Jane Reynolds are at sea. Jane Reynolds begins to have second thoughts about leaving her family for James Harris. The demon grows tired of this and reveals himself to her. Scene 2
      The House Carpenter is living with deep regret for what he’s done to Jane Reynolds. He reveals that she is a witch, and if he hangs himself the spell the demon has on her will be lifted. The House Carpenter hangs himself. Scene 3
      After the House Carpenter hangs himself, Jane Reynolds can feel her witchcraft return to her. She makes the demon a mortal man and punctures the boat. The boat sinks and Janes Reynolds and the demon drown at sea. Below are the program notes for the piece When I was fifteen my Grandfather pulled a banjo down from his attic and told me if I could learn to play it I could have it. A few years later I discovered The Anthology of American Folk Music edited by Harry Smith. The music contained on those six CDs opened my eyes to an “old, weird America” that I had no idea even existed. I learned how to play and sing every ballad on it, and it was these songs that gave me confidence to major in music. I’ve felt for the last couple years that the deeper I get into classical theory and technique, the further I’m getting away from these folk songs that have been so important to me. This chamber opera is my attempt to reconnect a little bit with some of these ballads. “The Daemon Lover” is a traditional Scottish ballad that is known as “The House Carpenter” in America. The story in this opera is basically that song, with a few story elements added that come from other folk songs. These songs include “The Old Lady and the Devil, Butcher’s Boy, The Cuckoo, Omie Wise, and The Drunkard’s Special. The melodies are also taken from folk songs, though often the words are taken from one folk song and sung with the melody of another one.
