HURNEY OUT!

224 posts in this topic

The decisions that a GM makes take the longest to fix and a new GM will need years to have his philosophy installed. So glad we didn't wait any longer.

So this will obviously have no effect on this season except for how coaches and players feel

New coaches can potentially right a ship immediately

After Hurney firing, Ron Rivera put on notice

http://www.nfl.com/n...a-put-on-notice

I don't think there is any question now that the staff is gone. A new GM will not take the position without the ability to find guys that fit their wishes. Rivera, McDermott, Chud....all as good as gone....

It's a lot like a political change from one party to the next. A small amount of time is spent changing what the first guy installed. The next bit is about installing your own plans/ideas.

The salary cap complicates things.

A new GM is going to want his own HC etc.....

Exactly... Rivera can't be too comfortable right now. Once a new GM is hired, Rivera may be shown the door soon after. No GM in his right mind is gonna lay his career on the line with a 7-15 head coach.

I loved the RIvera signing. I really thought he put together a group of coaches that wanted to teach and develop talent. But, when the Panthers came out with that read option heavy offense after the bye week, I can no longer stand with him. Should have beat the Cowturds. They tried to give it to us, but we kept giving it right back to em.

Works for me.... my biggest fear was the Panthers going on a wins streak, finishing strong at 8-8, 7-9 etc, we get another false reality and all was back and next season start 1-5 again. NOW I can enjoy the rest of the seaon, without that fear.

The Panthers will definitely finish strong... we still have all of our AFC West opponents.

It is a very unusual to fire a general manager in the middle of the season, but this is Richardson's signal that change is coming to Carolina. It's also a reminder how difficult life in the NFL can be. ThePanthers have lost four games by one score. If they complete another pass or two, Hurney still has his job.

Or if they run another power I or two, or a few less read options, or a few less bone headed FS plays, or a few more carries by actual RBs, or playing power football on short yardage situations, or... I could go on and on.

I don't think this is really about Hurney doing a bad job, as much as it is a signal to the rest of the organization that things are gonna change now. Win, or go home. Heads will roll if we don't win games. I don't think anyone is safe from the Big Cat right now. That includes Rivera, Chud, McD, Smitty, DWill (with his tweets, you can't blame him for his onfield play if he doesn't get the ball), and even Cam if he doesn't get his post game attitude together - I honestly think he does more than enough to win games with a little help from the running game.
