Be Careful What You Wish For...

Well, you guys got what you wanted, Hurney out. But how will this benefit Carolina? Chances are, it may not. The best GM's in the league are already locked down by other teams. The available GM's are available for a reason. A new GM could come in and completly wreck this roster like Seifert did to it in 2001. I have mixed feelings about Hurney being fired. Your Thoughts?

Hurney was the least of this teams' problems. This could have waited until the end of the season. As long as Rivera is in charge and he's letting Chud call the plays on offense, we are still going to suck. I don't see how this is going to help anything this year.

I think Hurney should go. I just don't see what good it does now.

Those thinking Hurney wasn't the biggest problem should go ahead and shoot themselves in the face.

I question the timing of the move. I do not question the move itself.

There are plenty of problems here that Hurney didn't cause. But there are plenty that land his lap as well.

We have shown an utter inability to build a roster for years now - stacking talent in odd places and ignoring / misplacing it elsewhere. How long have we been screaming about putting WR talent opposite Smitty? Or about not having more than one good CB? Or about the Safety position being manned by whoever happened to be around? The list goes on. These are things that go as far up the food chain as you can send them and Hurney was it.

It could always be worse - but that's as much fear of the unknown as anything else. We've been so ineffective for so long that I am no longer ok with the devil I know. Let's see the one I don't.

Marty had to go at some point and the sooner the better imo.

Sure things could get worse.. or better. We need to get a young, up and coming GM like the Falcons did a few years back.

After hearing CJ's sound bite... I think this was the Wrong move!

Looking at the Rivera hiring from Marty's standpoint. This guy (Rivera) had a pedigree for creating GREAT defenses! This was obviously a huge concern prior to his hiring. I think Marty thought that Rivera was gonna be a great HC... Anybody who's played for Rivera loved him on the D side of the ball...

I think this was the wrong move... But who am I to judge?

Yas' article that I posted here was a Greta read and very insightful... It explained a lot. Hurney being ousted appears to be the wrong move at the moment

IMO I'd rather have seen Rivera fired and Hurney stay on.

But, we wanted changes we got them.

Bill Polian past his prime is better than Hurney in his prime, IMO. Not that JR would hire him but he is available.
