Snake

Should we blame Richardson and not Hurney?

It's like this. The Carolina Panthers franchise is suffering from losing because of our owner. I love the fact that JR is a great business man to bring the Carolina Panthers, & the NFL to North Carolina. But he just like Jerry Jones, and Daniel Snyder. They are great business men with huge egoes. That's how they became wealthy. But football wise, all of them need to step to the side and let REAL football geniuses concentrate on the X's & O's of their teams. The only thing they should be involved in is the selling of tickets, and marketing their teams to be worldwide brand. But as long as you got owners making GM & Coaching decisions. They, as well as us will never win a Super Bowl, or even be a winning contender. (Panthers, Cowboys, Redskins). This is the truth, and I love the Carolina Panthers!! I would be elated if we won a Super Bowl one day.

What's amazing is that a local reporter actually crossed the Rubicon and dared to criticize the owner. Let's see if that persuades the others.

The CBS reporter made a lot of great points.

He probably will be exiled for what he said just like Yas and Gantt.

That dude is just the guy who works in the booth for the morning radio show on WFNZ. He's not a CBS reporter.

Don't you think either of those guys would have brought that up since then? It would be a spectacular story if there was a shred of truth to it.

Both, the blame should rise to the top even if it's not their fault.

Both still have sources within the Panthers and if they did that they would be totally out of the loop. You can't fight or prove everything that people do to you in life.

I think that instead of searching for a scapegoat/figurehead, how about people instead discuss the many variables that have gone into this season as opposed to pointing a lone finger?

The terms scapegoat and figurehead do not apply.

Between Hurney and JR one or both of these individuals are the Dr Frankenstein(s) of this creation we call the Panthers.

Every other conceivable position that falls under these two in the hierarchy of the Panther organization has at one time or another been blamed for the team's poor performance (they were true scapegoats).

Hurney and JR are the head of the snake.

They are not scapegoats or figureheads, far from it, they are the source of the problem and until this issue is sorted out, this team will not be competitive. We are rapidly approaching 20 years of history to support that belief.

true.

good or bad, richardson and hurney are responsible for what gets put on the field. the coaches are only there in a managerial capacity. their job is to make the most of what the FO gives them. hurney's job is to make sure that he has the right coaches and the players the coaches need to get wins. richardson has to make sure that hurney is getting the coach right and the players right. if hurney isn't doing his job right, if the team hurney is putting together isn't getting it right, richardson has a duty to replace him with someone who can.

richardson said he didn't fire fox after the '09 season because he knew he would probably have to pay fox and his staff whatever money they were owed as well as the new coach and staff and i can't really blame him for that, i just don't like it.

but....hurney has no contract. there would be no overhead for letting hurney go. he could be replaced free and clear. i have a feeling, though, that as long as hurney feels bad about losses, says the right things, and acts like he still cares he's gonna have a job. i'm not a fan of that at all.

i'm really hoping that the interviews that hurney has been given the past few days have been honest and that not only is it something he takes seriously (the issues he said that needs to be fixed), but that he pushes rivera and chud to get things right and make the most of the talent they have been given.

i liked what hurney said, even if i don't think it's near enough...but for the moment it will have to be.
