Captain Morgan

Ugly personnel decisions on the way

Jenks was half a cripple, and Harris had fallen way out of favor. Technically starters, yeah.. Crucial starters? Not even close. They were both COMPLETELY. Expendable.

Really? Cause Harris had two great seasons with the bears and Jenkins had a great season with the jets.

And we haven't had a dominat DT since Jenk was traded. It had to do more with his attitude than his play.

Edwards, Gamble, and Gross are gone.

Beason will be restructured.

I would look for other cuts as well...players on the lower end where the new GM feels he can find better players for similar or lesser money. Our team is going to look a lot different next year. I don't think Smitty will be cut but nothing is out of the question.

Cutting Williams would big picture.....cutting him before June first would help a lot in 2014. Gonna eat it in 2013. New GM is gonna have to eat some of it in order to build his team.

I suspect a lot of moves will be made with 2014 in mind more than 2013. Hurney left a mess with "his" guys.

Agree completely....

Anderson plays OLB too, lol. He played many snaps last year because we had injured players. If Anderson was as great as some of you think, then it would be no problem to pull out Davis on the snaps in which we only have two LB's.

Davis and Kuechly make STOPS, Anderson may every now and then. But not like them.

One is weak side and one is strong side. Anderson has played all of them.

Cutting him or trading him is ridiculous. Restructuring his contract would be the ideal thing to do.

You're also putting a lot of stock on Davis. One bad move or play. He goes down. Then what? Phillips, Senn? You're really going to trust them over anderson? I don't think so buddy.

the same people calling for all these players to be cut/traded or whatever.................

will be the same ones saying we have no leadership next season.

True, but how would that be different from this season? Where's the leadership now?

I'm for taking a gamble on releasing as many "talented" players as possible, and starting with young hungry guys. I'd rather see effort, emotion and underdog scenarios than pay to watch what we've seen the last few years.

jenkins played half a season after that.....then injuries forced him out of the NFL.

We got a 3rd for a player who played half a year. We traded him at the right time.

Ron Edwards is worth every penny of that $3M contract.

Does anyone remember how bad our DT's were before he got here? And now you think he should be cut? Ridiculous.

Gamble and Gross will probably be restructured.....not released (unless they won't restructure).

Hurney's gift from the grave.

Christ the next GM's work is cut out for him.
