Spoke with Jim Szoke on the phone...

If Rivera stays because of Rivera it looks to me JR was in fact on board with 'Hurney's hire' as coach.

Or he could be more on board with the idea of not eating the rest of his contract...

+1

I wonder if we'll need to fire the new GM mid season again to spark another run.

We should fire him after week 2 to guarantee a playoff run!

Let's all hope Mr. Szoke is spot on outside of one little thing. i would like the draft/FA order to be LT-DT-CB-WR

which was why fox wasn't fired when he should have been. JR didn't want to pay for two coaching staffs.

It wasn't his order just positions of need. He placed no weight on one over the other. Sorry I should have mentioned that.

because some GM or new HC might just want "his guy" that he can groom/build around. just trying to control more of the situation and growth.

I just feel like Cam is the type of stud you dont find but once every 25 or 30 years and its asinine for anyone to ignore that

i don't disagree with that. i can just see someone doing it for that reason.

If LT and corner are 2 of our biggest needs it could mean we are looking to cut Gross. It could mean we cut Gamble or are referring to the number 2 corner. Wide receiver suggests we are serious about finding a replacement for Smith for down the road.

I doesn't surprise me that Rivera could be kept. A 4 game win streak even in" meaningless games" is a big deal especially when they include Atlanta (who Richardson reportedly doesn't like) and New Orleans in the dome. Division rivals are a big deal.

I don't think we're looking to cut Gross, I think it's just an acknowledgement that Gross is getting old and we need to start thinking about who takes over @ LT when Gross is done. If you start looking for an LT when you need one, it's already too late.

I could see us releasing Gamble, he's old and expensive and we survived without him. Gamble is talented, but I've always thought he has a bit of an attitude problem... there are games when he's clearly not feeling it.

Gross is going to be 33 this July and has not played that well this year. With almost a 12 million salary cap who we could dump to save almost 10 million this year, it becomes pretty attractive to look elsewhere.

    • You do realize no one wanted RyanCare/ObamaCare Lite to pass, right? If anything, the media and democrats has made themselves absolute fools lately. STILL no evidence Trump colluded with Russia whatsoever, which is quite the funny irony in this whole conspiracy. Trump inherited a mess. Hard to fix this mess when you got crybaby globalists and dems everywhere.    
    • I hate this DG analogy so much.  It only makes sense in the context of an efficient market where teams are rational, have perfect information, and scouts are always right about players.  But we have ample evidence that is not the case.  Sometimes, talented players just don't work out.  Injuries derail careers.  Teams make oddball picks.  Sometimes, you are just wrong about a player (see Ealy, Kony). I like him a lot, but DG's habit of always trading up / never trading down may ultimately be his downfall in CAR.  It results in a lack of depth across the roster and it makes your roster very vulnerable to i) injuries (see 2015 vs. 2016) and ii) missing on evals.  If we missed on Funchess (jury still out), that hurts - but missing on Funchess when you traded multiple picks to get him compounds the issue. Trading up and trading down are both valid strategies - but I'd suggest balancing the two strategies would improve your chances of long-term success.
    • He is worth #8 pick. I'd like to see him next to Newton on the field.
