darin gantt "Panthers keep finding scapegoats, bigger problem remains"

Gantt starts the article question all of Rivera's moves, then says the real problem is the misallocation of dollars spent on running backs by Hurney.

Well, which is it, Darin?

He's never gotten over the (unfair) way he was dropped, but no need to take it out on innocent people.

But you can't be too surprised at the firings. Rivera is desperate right now. He's on the hot seat 8 months before the season even starts.

Exactly. Gantt should know this, too, and probably does but e just had a story due so he wrote one.

It happens all the time when the HC is on the hotseat but gets granted another year; assistants get replaced.

He's always negative anyway. Him and Bret Jensen. Hard to listen to/read when everything they say is pessimistic.

Gantt used to defend John Fox a fair amount. Marty Hurney too.

"Teflon Ron"

Always witty commentary from App State's most famous alum.

In the past I enjoyed Gantt, but lately he has become ridiculously critical (almost bitter) with his tweets and stories. No matter what the Panthers do, they are wrong. The stance is getting tired. Its like when he started working for pro football talk he wanted to focus on ragging on the Panthers.

Honestly, what decisions has the franchise made recently that he should be applauding them for?

Really I don't remember Gantt being happy about a move we've made.... Ever.

When he was the beat writer for the Panthers he was great though... Knew pretty much everything that was going on in the front office

I agree with nearly everything Gantt wrote.

All is not well in Pantherland.

Can't disagree with DG.
Everything he said is the truth.

The main problem is still here (Rivera).

LB, WR and RB weren't the problem but somehow all the coaches are used as scapegoats.

he is a prick and i've had my share of arguments with him over the years, but i can't argue with the write up. he made a lot of good points and brought up a lot of good questions that i don't know the panthers have a good counter to.
