So in translation... "With the 1st pick in the 2014 NFL draft, the Carolina Panthers select..."

I personally would have fired Chud and hired Norv the moment the season ended anyways... who wants an OC that has to be babysat by the HC?

Yeah but there's never enough good info on our cap situation this time of year.

Some say we were $6Mil under this years cap and we can carry that over to next year. That would leave us at $10Mil over and then you cut a few restructure a few and we'll end up $10-$15Mil under at some point, just like this year. Even the reporters disagree on salary cap numbers at times.

But even my argument is flawed because, again, we don't have good info right now. I have faith that we'll be fine salary cap wise


Also there are always ridiculous built in contract escalators that don't trigger, and lower some guys cap numbers the next year. I think one time a fifth string receiver had a "Win the Super Bowl MVP" escalator that he didn't hit, and it lowered his cap figure the following year.

Most people don't know about those clauses because you would have to have a copy of the contract to read that stuff. . . which the media doensn't. So I'm always wary of cap projections because people are working with fuzzy information.

And we will pick from the scrap heap of Free Agency.

Can someone explain to me why JR is giving Rivera an unproven coach so much control??? He killed foxy but not Rivera.

Rivera took control after Hurney was fired. Now he's cutting guys without Gettleman's opinion. I'm sick of it.

who is he cutting without Genttleman's opinion? His staff? HC builds his staff....Hurney made the right call letting Rivera bring in Chud. You don't hire a HC and then have a GM appoint who his staff is....Gantt is off base there. His opinion on RR awhile back slants all his writing now.

From his last couple posts slamming managment and the team, I'm guessin Gannt is carrying around a wee bit of anger from the whole "being assigned to cover Winthrop University" thing.


...Rozinski syndrome...

Gantt's opinion on this subject is no better than the biggest idiot's opinion on this board. He's no expert when it comes to NFL management. He's a Reporter, he's supposed to gather FACTS and relay them to the public. The moment he puts his own spin or opinion on things is the moment that I stop listening. He's got the right to his opinion, but he's not an expert... He's a reporter, and people need to remember that.

It is clear that JR has no idea how to run an NFL franchise.

Err...a winning NFL franchise that is. He's good at taking money though.
