Anderson is a solid, dependable LB but is grossly overpaid.

The Panthers dont "trade" any of their starters.. They never have. Regardless of any new GM, expect this philosophy to continue. That progressively senile old man in the Ivory Tower - he never trades starters, and he'll never spend big money in Free Agency.

He cuts high priced players or lets them walk. Does piddly trades for bench-warmers and 6th and 7th round draft picks, picks up old players past their prime in free agency if theyre available for a song.

You guys know all this.. Why pretend something else is actually gonna happen?

They will almost have to. Many people didn't expect JR to hire a consultant for the GM search, he wants to win. And he's willing to change his ways to do so.

I don't know, I have to disagree with that statement.

I love Beason as much as the next guy, one of my all-time Panther favorites. However, I think we have the next Urlacher on our hands, something really special that will be a force for years. He is leading all rookies in tackles and looks very comfortable in the MLB position, why damper his progression and put in an aging vet? Unless Beason seriously restructures his contract, moves to the outside, or just takes a leadership role, I think we should pay our respects and let him catch on with another team. Always hate to see a guy like Beason go but it's for the better...

The next Urlacher, get the fug outta here, he is okay for now hopefully he will continue to get better as each game goes bye but I wouldn't go that far.

Ron Edwards has actually earned his $ this season.

Gamble/Gross/DWill

Anderson is average, being paid above average.

Beason will redo his deal I think.

Exactly on Edwards.

After seeing how bad our DT's were before Edwards, anyone who thinks he is not worth $3m a year is officially brain dead.

Jesus Christ.

This thread shows that most of you are even crazier than I thought.

There is now no wondering why none of you have jobs that require important decisions....because you all suck at it.

Like you with trying to trade Cam. Pot calling the kettle black.

I wouldnt get rid of Cam, but if people are calling for Rivera's head on a platter after 1.5 seasons, why is it so ridiculous and retarded to suggest Cam is not the answer? He is damn near just as crucial to this team's success as the HC.

Seriously.

Brian Murphy is my neighbor and he told me Cam can't read defenses.-Madhatter

MadHatter's post are as legitimate as TonyN's.

Cam having one bad season doesn't mean he's the answer. Rivera's team cannot finish, last yeat it was the defense this year it's the offense. 1-11 in games decided by a touchdown or less. He has been a colossal failure. Cam has actually shown, when given time. He can make plays.

Sure, he can make plays and show flashes of brilliance, but he isnt getting the job done. So.. "franchise QBs" Who were #1 overalls who routinely blow it get loads of time to develop, but a HC doesn't? I'm not saying youre wrong, JT - Id just like you to explain it to me. Being a HC in the NFL is arguably the toughest job in pro sports. Cam gets a pass for blowing it, but RR doesnt?

Willaism is a obvious out.

With both Luke and Davis playing well, I don't see the reasoning for keeping both Anderson and Beason.

With Gamble and Gross, while I understand there expensive, losing them will leave their respective units very depleted without any definite starting talent ( besides Kali).
