until hurney wisely started separating himself from fox towards the end (matter of self-preservation...wanted a job) i always considered them simpatico and pretty much a package deal.

i kind of wish they had remained that way.

[u][b]Fire Hurney as of right now immediately.[/b][/u]

this would accomplish nothing except appease some whining fans.

nothing good would really come from that.

finish the season and then move on.

i did? i blamed fox for gambling too much with draft picks?

there was a lot of stuff that i didn't like either of them because i didn't think either one was doing enough to build the team and were too interested in maintaining the status quo. when hurney moved on from/away from fox he became more palatable to me. i held both of them responsible and often discussions would be which GM we would like to go with our new coach.

i thought that hurney had started to change and be more proactive but i still don't like his approach to team building. it's just not balanced and it never has been. we had too much experience and not enough youth in the fox years to go forward and now the problem is the opposite...not enough experience. too much youth. i also don't like building exclusively through the draft.

i didn't like fox and was more than ready for him to move on. i was open to hurney staying as long as we did something to move forward but i'm ready to move on from him again.

So we've got who most folks want to go, and I'd be lying if I said I was shocked.

But just to shift gears here, who do folks think actually has a realistic shot at being fired?

And to be clear, "nobody" is indeed a viable option.

One thing is for sure, with the level of Panther fan anger and disgust reaching an all time high around Charlotte, JR will have no choice but to act decisively at the end of the 2012 regular season.

Honestly, I'm not sure who he'll terminate but knowing JR's history with this organization, if I were the grounds keeper, I would be very nervous.

From what we have read in the past, Hurney is only the cap guy. He does not make the big decisions like other GM's

Our drafts are not that bad. We have had a string of players however that we cut, who go on to make other squads and start.

Our college guys are doing okay in that respect.

Our big problems right now are fundamentals and execution. I would say that falls more on Rivera than anyone. If you say we have the talent, that lets Hurney and college scouts off the hook.
