I think we see a healthy mix of parting with some big names and lower tier players.

Hurney would have a job if the right players where in Carolina.....they aren't. That means new GM will most likely do a lot more than just draft a new class to add to the Hurney bunch.

Reason why have struggled so often isn't having the wrong superstars....but IMO the rest of the roster is weak. We have had bad depth and weak 2nd tier players.

I don't think that the issue is that he couldn't find talent or even get the right guys. The problem is that he failed to meld his idea of wanting to keep guys like Stewart and Williams with the offense continuing to run a run-heavy scheme. Chud and Hurney were on opposites ends of the spectrum as far as what they were doing. Since it was Hurney's thing to manage he was let go.

Based on the injuries we have had to key plays and how the backups played the past few weeks, the depth looks pretty good.

No way....LaFell was more well rounded as a rookie. Like in baseball, chicks dig the deep ball. That was all Gettis displayed really. He poorly used his big body as a rookie when given the chance....and isn't as athletic overall as LaFell.

And Gettis didn't do diddly poo with Clausen. He caught one big ball from BSP....that isn't doing lots of work with bad QBs.

LaFell had stones hands his rookie season. There's a reason Gettis was starting over LaFell.
No WR did diddly poo with Clausen. Clausen has yet to throw a TD to a WR. Jeff King and Mike Goodson were his safety valves.
Gettis had success with Moore and BSP. But you feel he should be judged by his time with Clausen? Good thing it wasn't up to you if we kept Smitty after playing with Clausen.

I am not ready to throw dirt on any WR we have. Depending on whether or not we aggressively go after an every down playmaker at the WR position, I don't think we'll necessarily get rid of any of them, and if we do it will probably be Edwards, Gettis or Pilares considering what LaFell and Murphy have done as of late.

On an off note, If Gettis emerges and we pick up another legitimate threat, this is the only way I see Smitty moving to the slot. Otherwise I would assume that Gettis and Smitty would be on the outside while either LaFell or Adams would be in the slot.

Gettis was in for 4 straight plays if I recall, because I literally had to make sure I was remembering "12" was "Gettis".

He was spread way out wide to the left like 3-4 straight times near the end of the first half.

I was happy to seem him out there.. but Cam didn't look his way even once.

Then I was looking for him the rest of the game and didn't see him on the field.

I can't wait to see him actually catch a pass... Maybe against the Raiders? Who knows... All I know is if he's on the field and makes a catch in BofA, the place could explode. LOL

Anybody wanna guess what David Gettis did after his first TD in 2010?

That cut on the route is just dirty. If he can run anything like that now I don't see why the panthers don't play him. He clearly proved to be useful before he got injured.

Since when does Cam decide who plays and who doesn't? Thought that was a coaching decision....

just shows how much this fanbase is unrealistically full of Cam, good lord
