You can fire one of three...

I would fire Hurney without even thinking about it. In 2nd place is Chud.

There aren't many teams that would keep a GM that has failed 75% of the time. It's not like Richardson is scared to spending money. Richardson is more than willing to pay players, but Hurney is putting the resources into the wrong positions. Honestly, I really do like Williams and J-Stew... a lot. The problem is that you don't need great RB's to be good. Get Cam a better offensive line and better weapons to throw to and that's all we need. Obviously we need a REAL NFL offense, but that's besides the point.

i think the talent is there on offense. we have quite enough to be one of the best on that side of the ball. the problem has been in the play calling and execution. they are better than what they've managed to pull off.

on defense, tho, and esp. on STs i think talent is sparse. the LB corps is above average, but the Dline (aside from CJ) and the secondary (aside from gamble) is average at best. safety is the biggest weak spot of them all, but the other parts aren't all that good either. fwiw, i have my hopes up for norman and munnerlynn (if they can keep him in the slot). i just don't love us right now there.

I'm mostly skeptical of the OL. Even with Kalil they just don't seem to be good enough to dictate the game. I'm a bit disappointing in all the receivers as well, I was hoping LaFell would step it up.

I am happy with Olsen though. I think he's the only offensive player I'm digging this season.

for some reason the Oline always takes a few weeks to get at the top of their game.

i'm sure that will happen again this year, tho with kalil out it will take longer and they won't be as strong when they do.

Hurney.

The new GM can do as he wishes with the Director of College Scouts and Rivera.

I just am astounded at people who say the 'Panthers have enough talent too....'.

Talent can and will overcome mediocre coaching by extending plays, breaking tackles, speed, intelligence.

For people who say the 'Panthers have so much talent....' ask yourselves, if any of the top teams could pick talent at will from the panthers, who would they take, and then, who would they take at current contract levels.

As Parcells says 'you are what your record says you are'.

Simple and plan.

Easy.

Big picture....Hurney goes. It takes care of our backwards built roster and we likely get new coaches

So we can have someone else coach our 87 RBs and covert more CBs into Safeties?

Hurney has at least done good things for our franchise, he has made some great decisions and been able to keep our big names in house. He often overpays but he's able to get it done. Rivera has done nothing for us so far

Fire Hurney as of right now immediately.

Let Rivera finish the season out and then evaluate his position.

Yeah....he has let big named DEs walk for nothing and kept big named expensive backup RBs.

That ain't getting it done. Out record supports that as well

I'd go with Hurney. We already have a new coaching staff and the chemistry, emotion, fundamentals and effort hasn't changed much. Let the new GM decide the fate of Rivera and company...
