Block like 10 people I knew it was coming! Some people don't know anything about football and call them self fans! Umma rt some real fans

These 'players' need to really stfu and worry about their own jobs. If JR Hires a GM worth a damn MOST will be shipped the hell outta here.

But maybe that is why they are bitching? Maybe they know now their time is up.

As I said in the other thread, I'm not celebrating it. It's actually fairly depressing.

On the other hand, and from player's reactions, I think they would agree, if we would've canned Rivera today, I would be much happier with that move.

I'm not saying Hurney wasn't the problem, but I think he could've fixed the problems. Meanwhile, we have to ride out the rest of this season and from what players are saying, it sounds like they aren't behind the coaching staff... Wrong person to go at this time if you ask me. Firing your GM midseason really accomplishes nothing and is nothing more than a scare tactic IMO.

But it won't work, b/c Rivera just hasn't shown the ability to learn or improve as a HC.

Why do you think Hurney could've fixed the problems? He hasnt fixed anything ever. And I agree, from what the staff member told my family, the players do not like Ron's methods of talking to them. But the whole "accomplishes nothing" thing is a bit off, as this season is done. There was nothing to accomplish. While it may have been more of a move to appease the fans, good, we're what matters most.

You have no idea, the suffering I have felt under this GM.

John Fox, avenged.

He's been with the Panthers a FULL decade, out of which only 3 winning seasons.

Gave Delhomme a 30+ million dollar contract extension, then cut him the next season.

Fired Fox who won with The Golden Calf of Bristol his first year in Denver! Brought in Rivera.

Has 2 running backs worth 89 million dollars. Deangelo had 2 snaps yesterday!

Cut Muhammad and has never found a replacement for him to be a number 2 to Steve Smith.

It goes on and on...compared to him Tannenbaum is a genius.

The players know what they're talking about, none of you do, considering we are all just FANS. If the players don't think it was a good move then it wasn't a good move. We need more players like CJ to put the "fans" in their place.

The players haven't been performing. The coaching staff has been shitty. The GM puts both in place. New GM. Then new coaches. Then players that either step up or find new homes.

A player isn't going to bite the hand that fed them, ie Hurney.

Well, one player didn't like it.

Muhammad was past his time in 2010 but the first time they didn't resign Muhammad really hurt the Panthers. Smith, Muhammad, Delhomme were a great combo on the field and in the locker room. Overpaying Muhammad would've been the right thing to do. He was a great leader and the team had a much tougher attitude with him.

Keeping Peppers was the complete opposite. A cancer who only thought of himself and hated the franchise. They forced him to stay but said piss off to our leader.
