Captain Morgan

Ugly personnel decisions on the way

Truth hurts sometimes. But we will literally have no WR core if he leaves/retires

We have a ton of issues to address...and it's looking like they all won't be fixed this offseason

Blowing poo up doesn't mean you don't bring new bodies in....

New GM/coach isn't gonna keep the Hurney bunch together and just look to plug the existing holes. That mindset is why we suck currently.

We go get and start building our new WR core. Smith doesn't represent what you build around.....he represents the past and brings package that is tough on a new era.

If we hire another Cleveland Brown cast off I am going to kill everyone in the world.

Having met Beason, he is our Ray Lewis on Defense, he's the Defenses Capt and true leader, I think Zod will agree with me on that with him also having spent time around him.

I think cutting Beason would be a huge mistake, yes he hasn't been around lately but the guy when he gets back healthy again will be a force to reckon with. I still think he's our best player on defense when healthy.

Gamble may be old but he's our best CB, and with the way our backfield is right now it needs all the help it can get.

only he isn't.....Beason goes to IR, Luke steps in and the D looks better than it has overall in years.

We should restructure and ask him to play OLB. He can be a huge asset going forward. But he is no Ray Lewis.....and is no longer our MLB

By a little bit do you mean two years? Because that's the most you can stretch it out. Like I said, DeAngelo and Beason are HUGE cap hits to cut or restructure.....

Going to have to selectively take some hits. Only way to work out of this mess....and change the team,

Its threads like this that remind me how glad I am that people on internet message boards don't make any real decisions.

Yeah, good thing we had guys like Hurney instead paying RBs more than any team in NFL history for a staff that wanted little to do with them.....

Hurney knows more than all of us.....but sometimes smart people can't see the forest bc of the trees. NFL is no exception to life. Lot of flawed people doing obvious dumb things are easy to find.

This exactly what I said after week 2 or 3 and got flamed. keek came in and provided an instant spark for the defense. I loved Beason as much as the next guy but he is done as far as the MLB spot goes, he may be done in general.

Like others have said he will have to take a pay cut next year and move outside and hope that he can regain some of his former self.

Here is my prediction:

Restructured:

Beason (moved outside or backup role)

Gamble

Gross

Anderson (may be cut if he doesn't restructure)

Williams (may be cut if he doesn't restructure)

Stewart

Charles Johnson

Cut:

Murphy

Gettis

Tolbert

Clausen ( I believe his contract is up anyway)

Nakamura

Probably a few surprises

We will probably not be able to resign Hardy unless those huge contracts above are fixed

Will be going WR with 1st pick and then draft OL

we are going to part with a lot more than just the current scrubs like a Nakamura and Clausen.

Those guys aren't the actual Hunrey roster.....new GM is going to blow it up to a degree and that usually means vets that can still play but a clean break is needed.

James Anderson has been underwhelming, he's the one who have up the td yesterday.

Cut him

Are you serious right now? Cut one of our most consistent and best line backers?!

Ron Edwards is an easy decision to cut.

He's not counting much against the cap either way. He's working for the vet minimum...

Gross should be forced to retire.

I doubt this happens at all. I agree he's old, but what good will him retiring do for us? Who's going to take his spot? Bell? Campbell? Top 5 draft choice? This is the only feasible thing you've said.

Trade/cut Dwill

This dead horse again. Dwill will not be cut, traded? Maybe, huge maybe if a team will take on his contract. But what team will take on that huge contract for an aging RB? Best case scenario you get a mid round pick for him, if that. Come draft day if the new GM can swing a deal, I'll be surprised. Best case scenario, he restructures and stays with us. Cutting him will mean that they have to eat a sufficient amount of cash that was thrown at him.

I can't believe you said to cut JA...reminds me of the time you said we should cut Gamble. That was fun.

I actually meant trade.

    • Is this dude a real life person or an alt of @GOOGLE JIM BOB COOTER that is a living joke exemplifying the white culture thread? 
    • lol no one takes him seriously. He gets a courage award for bringing his hand-me-down  dad-politics into ttb while still asking to himself, "what does ttb mean again?"
    • I'm extremely pumped by this addition. It has to be the biggest addition since the team came back to Charlotte. I was too young to follow the original talented Hornets (Im sad), so I'm not going back that far. People and fans can say what they want about D12, but the man still have a lot left in his tank. And, Im tired of hearing how he doesnt fit in today's game anymore. There are only a handfull of big men today that I can really say, can shoot the ball: Davis, Towns, Embiid, Cousins and Aldridge.  Howard can still dominate! That's all that matters. The only neg I will give Howard is that I do see a lack of desire/effort to play at times. But, I believe MJ can help motivate him back to being a dominant big man again for next two years here.  Dwight Howard averaged a double-double last season: 13.5 ppg, 12.7 rpg, 1.2 bpg, and 1.4 apg.  D12 had "53", I said FIFTY-THREE double doubles last season. He had six games where he averaged 20 rebounds or more.  Guess who was the last Bobcats/Hornets era to even come close to that number.....Emeka Okafor in 2004 as a rookie with 47 double doubles (35.6 MPG). Then Big Al had 42 in 2013 (35.0 MPG). Howard did that while averaging 29.7 min per game. If you count out his 2014 season where he only played in 41 games, last season was the LEAST amount of minutes played per game in Howard's career.  Only three guys (Towns, Whiteside and Gobert) averaged more double doubles than Howard in 2016. And only four other guys ( Whiteside, Drummond, DJordan and Gobert) averaged more RPG than Howard last season. Other than Towns, none of those guys mentioned above can really shoot the ball any better than Howard. But, teams still want them on their teams for big contracts.    D12 will be a beast this upcoming season!
