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.


How bout I just pie you?

I feel like the only local media guy I've liked lately is Tom Sorenson. I know Joe Person is late on everything and kind of sleazy, but I find my self enjoying his stuff a little more than Darins. Maybe it is just personal preference.

somebody for the Charlotte Observer said that when he asked Smitty should Rivera come back all he did was smiled. but Fred being gone could cause him to go ape poo.


Smith spoke pretty clearly in favor of Rivera staying a short time ago.

Not sure how he'll feel about this, but in the past he's been a "it's just business" guy (like when Muhammad and Delhomme were let go).

Yeah, both points are interesting, but smitty has been around the league a while now. He understands its a business. Besides Smith, our WRs have been kind of under achievers. LaFell could/should be a lot better (even with him being hurt) and Murphy can be fixable. This team needs playmakers around Cam, and before that - you need someone that can coach playmakers.

Which IMO is why JR was a freakin idiot for keeping this loser instead of letting the GM do what's necessary.

Rivera sucks..

I agree with Gantt, why the hell fire the LBs coach? That just makes no sense whatsoever

I hear you - it is really weird right? It makes zero sense on the outside, which suggests that there is (or was) something else going on here. Maybe Rivera has his eye on someone with head coaching experience and linebackers was the only area he could put them. Who knows..maybe Belin did not want to put Luke at MLB and Rivera did.

Why do I feel most of the Gantt hatred comes from the fact that he isn't a homer and he usually laughs at the fan tweets suggesting we go get whatever washed up big named player just got cut?

Maybe Belin didn't agree with Rivera and didn't buy into his bs so he was probably on his way out to go somewhere with more organizational skills I believe.
