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?

Rivera is in control of the entire team, Cam does not play defense and Cam does not block for himself. Cam can only control Cam, Sam Bradford, Josh Freeman, Mark Sanchez, were all given 3rd chances. Football is a TEAM sport, the coach will always take the fall.

Beason, MeAngelo, and Gamble are history. They need to rid themselves of Byron Bell, and all the rest of the "make-dos" on the O-line. Medlock and the rookie punter need to go be superstars in the Arena League, they cant hack it in the NFL. Dont be shocked when the new GM sends Smitty, Munnerlyn,Gettis, Hartsock, and all of the former shitass San Diego Charger scrubs packing, either.

It goes without saying Clausen and Edwards will be out of the League by next September.

Oh I agree we're going to have to make some tough decisions, but cutting guys like Beason and DeAngelo (or even restructuring them for that matter) will not free up cap at all....

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.

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

I would definitely not trade Cam. I think he will be fine and I want to see him under a different coaching staff.

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

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

Believe me or not...no biggie.

I asked him a question and he told me his opinion. Nothing more.

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?

Ken Lucas, Kemo, Hartwig, Wahle. Those were high priced free agents. Granted, they didn't work out too well long term, but they made their impact short term (minus Hartwig).

I'll give you Hartwig and Lucas is on the bubble. This is over an 18 year period. Thats virtually NONE, in terms of how teams in this League operate, no?

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.

Luke is 4 tackles away from leading the NFL......and he was on the sidelines huge chunks of games early this season.

What exactly does the next Urlacher look like as a rookie?

Oh I can say without a doubt that we have ignored FA to a fault. "21 out of 22 returning starters" from a shitty squad predictably never worked. Ever.

I was just providing semi-recent examples that we have indeed signed high prices free agents. And Kemo was a big name that year. Wahle was that year what Gross would be this offseason if we cut him.

Some people are clueless. Like myself, most people didn't want us to draft Luke, but at least the large majority of us can accept the fact that Luke was the best pick our franchise could have made in that scenario.
