Anybody got a link or text of this open letter to JR in today's paper?

They make a few decent points, but I think they're unrealistic about a lot of stuff.

It's funny that the Observer made such a big deal of Kalil's letter, but this one doesn't merit a mention.

Care to summarize?

JR, you care too much about money. If this was a real business you would be fired for mismanagement.

You shouldn't have hired Rivera. You should hire an established coach.

PSLs are a ponzi scheme.

That's what I got, anyway. Lots of bitching that all he wants to do is make money, and he isn't trying to build a winner. And of course, the obligatory "Hurney sucks!" and "Rivera sucks" comments that you would expect from any disgruntled fan.

I believe that JR exchange in that letter as much as I believe Blaine Gabbert is a franchise quarterback. AKA, not at all.

Yeah I don't either.

Letter sounds like somebody on the Huddle could have written it...didn't use caps lock though.

So much so that he was willing to rationalize the trade of Kony Ealy to the Patriots, which essentially netted him a second-round pick eight slots higher than the third-round pick they included in the swap. "It's a heavy draft and it was an opportunity for us to move up. To you guys, eight spots doesn't seem like much. But to me, it's gold," Gettleman said, via the Charlotte Observer.   Scout's Notebook: Cam must evolve as QB   Free Agency's biggest unanswered storylines   Harrison: All-Under-25 Team   Brandt: Best second-round picks since '12   MJD: Ranking the '17 RB prospects   Players who won free agency   Brooks: Peterson 'just another' RB now   Schein: Each division's favorite, top contender   Rosenthal Why is everyone ignoring Big Ben?   Scouting Report/team fits: Malik Hooker He added: "You've got to give up something to get something. You're not fooling anybody anymore. There's too much film available. We just wanted to move up and get another second-round pick. I think it gives us more flexibility." This was, on the front end, a nice way for Gettleman to distance himself from Ealy without criticizing the dynamic former second-round pick, though it does put the fearless general manager in a precarious position. Rationalizing a trade to move up eight slots suggests there is someone in particular who you are targeting and expect to be there. At the least, it suggests that one of a few people you hope are there can contribute right away significantly. Ealy was not a perfect player, but his ability to get to the quarterback was undeniable. If the Panthers had won Super Bowl 50, there's a chance Ealy would have been named MVP despite playing just a handful of snaps. Carolina already got rid of one exceptional homegrown defensive talent in Josh Norman last year and could see Ealy come back to bite them inside the Patriots' versatile front. Of course, Gettleman isn't afraid of what anyone thinks and has done a nice job getting the Panthers under control since taking over the gig in 2013. He has plenty of equity built up with the Panthers' fan base, but a home run with that second-round pick couldn't hurt. "
