Its no news flash that Carolina fired the GM, got it.

But firing the GM midseason is a POWERFUL statement. The GM picks players, coaches, salaries, FAs, training staff etc. What was Jerry saying when he made this move?

Was he saying that the team is bad because of the players?
If so, then it is probably going to shock EVERYONE with who remains after this Offseason.

Was he saying that the Coaches suck that bad?
If thats the case why fire the GM now and not later. He still got paid. Jerry is obviously not against coaches getting fired midseason.

The salary situation would be the obvious first guess, but if that is the only reason it still shocks me that Hurney was let go like that. You would think that letting him go like that would preclude his hires, i.e. Rivera to be left making personnel decisions. Not that I miss him or anything, just saying, it was eyeopening.

Whatever the reason for it, Carolina Panthers is going to be a lot different next year. A lot more than just a few new rookies and a top FA. The entire make up of our team is going to change. We are known for hanging on to draft picks waiting for them to pan out. I think that will be the first thing to change. (second if you count the uniform revolution, lol)
