"Teflon Ron" isn't as good or original as "Stoic Ron", btw

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.

I agree, I deleted him from my twitter. I got tired of him.

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.

Sadly, I agree with this too. :(

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

I know it's been a rough season, even with the late win streak, but firing Hurney was the right move. Hiring a consultant to assist with the GM search was a good move. I know its old, but Morrison seems like a solid president - guy is always out and about shaking hands. What about how the big cat handled the situation with Greg Olsen's baby?

I can't recall a time when Gant praises any of our players (I know there have not been many worth it for the past three seasons) but guys like DeAngelo, Tolbert, Johnson, Hardy, Godfrey, LaFell - you never hear anything about them. However, when the Panthers do anything where you can make it look like a foolish move, he jumps on it. He was critical when rivera fired the special teams coach - and as I recall, special teams play did improve towards the end of the season. It seems like he is just bitter towards the Panthers and looks for the negative over the positive. I'll still follow him, he's good at what he does. This shtick is just getting old.

I respect your opinion... I didn't like the releasing of any of the position coaches I feel if any position coach needs to be fired it should be the O-Line. I especially don't like that we won't look at Jim Skipper for our RB coach, Double Trouble ran their best while he was here smh....

I can't wait to see the meltdown on here when the new GM cuts or trades a few fan favorites. I don't want it to happen either but I've already prepared for it.

Is it just me, or is everybody in the print media an asshole?

I honestly won't be shocked if Beason, Gamble and Williams are all not a part of this team next season.

I hope not because they are 3 of my favorites (especially Beason), but it wouldn't shock me at all if it happens.

I think we can get away with just Williams and Gamble leaving.

I'd pie you a hundred more times if I could. Spot on.

Gantt was decent on twitter regarding the Panthers after he was gone as beat writer. Now since he's started at PFT, he only writes articles slamming Carolina. If I see a Carolina related title on the PFT homepage, I don't even need to click it to know it was written by DG and its bashing Carolina.
