edit: and Im shocked to hear a conifdent dude like the Kurb say otherwise, listening to Panthro too much methinks



Honestly I think JR wants to win. That said, if you had a CEO with his track record of owning this team would you as a board member vote to keep him or replace him ?

4 successful years.
I'm running out of people other than JR to blame is all.

Just like the concept that he is "ALL ABOUT DEM SUPABOWLZ" is just opinion.

Hurney should have been fired with Fox. Could one not say the JR holding on to a GM that had wasted a bucket of draft picks, never really been able to develop key positions (WR/DT/QB) and generally acted as a bullet catcher for the Owner is just yet another example of an Owner that doesn't really get it ?

I see a no name GM and either Rivera Kept, or some scrub Coordinator like Perry Fewell hired.
My outlook on this front office has never been lower.


Which likewise is all opinion.

For my part, I think Richardson's biggest mistake was trusting Marty Hurney. That particular mistake is now over.

The Panthers aren't the first franchise to fire one guy when they should have fired the other (or both) and they won't be the last. That happens on a pretty regular basis. Both the Bears and Eagles just fired good head coaches in favor of their GMs. We'll see who made the right decision down the road.

As to the Panthers, if Jerry Richardson were running the GM search, I could see being down. But since he hired a true football guy like Ernie Accorsi to do it for him, I see plenty of reason to be optimistic.

Again, if that process ends in disaster, then I'll be down. For the moment though, we're pursuing two candidates, either of whom I'd be perfectly happy with.

You have a very pessimistic outlook. I suppose I don't take this stuff seriously enough to ever let it get me to the point of painting my fingernails black, wearing skinny jeans, and brooding by candle light like you and Panthro. Obviously I'm just trying to make joke to lighten this place up a little.

Well, thats a different story but this league doesnt work like that so we shouldnt think in those terms if thats the case.

I just bragged to my Bro In Law, the Bucs fan, that the Panthers are more valuable than his franchise and our owner has good intentions.

I then told him that makes us even on the year.

People are getting upset at Panthro b/c deep down the entire fanbase is starting to fear that his opinion is correct.


What if Hurney knew those last few contracts were garbage?
What if ALL of the idiot decisions come straight back to JR ?

It means its all for naught, if they all do come back to JR we are fuged, Cam Keek all of the young talent we THINK we might have will be wasted on poo decisions. It's a fear all of us should have had in some form and if you haven't you either are in a medication worthy level of denial or you just aren't fuging paying attention.


Someone said this on twitter today and it hurts how much it is true, "If JR worked as hard on the Panthers as he did lining his pockets with the lockout this team would have a couple Championships by now"

Great post, and the bolded is spot on.

Of course it doesnt, and Im just as pissed as you are for getting swept. . . but it is a niiiiiiiice little gold nugget in the pocket to say btw, we're still more valuable. Damn man its nice to have something to come back with right?
