Honestly, almost all the 2nd tier FA that could help us are gone. This FA has moved faster then others from the past few years, it's not just the Mike Wallace's that got signed the first few days, Phillips and Canty are already gone. We are fugged.

I really hope you are being sarcastic, but your tone in your message says you are serious. I guess we may as well pack it up and forfeit all our games next season. Sigh......

Everyone knows championship are built through Free Agency

Guess Gettleman needs to panic and follow the motto of this thread.

I am serious, because this is the same story we've heard for years and years now, and where are we? As our fanbase gets more and more bitter, how do you think the players feel? Players take paycuts/less pay etc to play on teams with a chance to win, not on a team that's always "building". We are becoming the Bobcats of the NFL.

I stay out of most threads during fre agency cause it's always the same.

Most fans have no concept of the situation, and it's nothing but over reaction to lack of activity.

The Panthers are never big spenders in free agency.
They also don't have the funds available to go after players that most of you want.

decent spenders in the years we have won...but no room to do that as long as Hurney's overpaid squad remains here

There are 450 free agents..which why the Drayton Florence signing is puzzling to me.

I wonder if Gettleman just found a really old draft guide and thought Florence was a sought after cb.

Seriously..there will be still big names after this inital rush..and yes it would be nice to secure the guy and a name..but gotta understand the position the cap is in and all we are probally offering is 1 year contracts to maintain the cap flexibility next season.

Hey hurney came to this country just like me and you, you are an anti-hurnite.

Have you guys ever thought that maybe no one wants to sign with the Panthers?

You know CJ isn't going to re-sign next year.
[/quote]CJ? I hope you don't mean Charles Johnson because he's signed through 2016.

Hurney dug a substantial hole. It will take time to dig our way out of the financial mess. We won't get out of the hole if we treat free-agency the way some here expect. Breaking the bank is what got us [i][b]into [/b][/i]this mess to begin with.

The official line on how long it would take for panic to set in was 72 hours.

If you bet the "under", you can go ahead and cash in.

Gettleman came to this team with a strength for analyzing personnel. Just because we haven't caught a big fish yet (in the first couple of days of FA, for fugs sake) doesn't mean a damn thing when he has a history of finding gems in once preconceived lower-level players.

And..oh yeah, we have no money.

ugh.

threads like this are worse than the mess hurney left gettleman to clean up.

just because we haven't done much in the first couple days of free agency doesn't mean we aren't going to. theres still a ton of talent available and prices are still higher than they will should be and gettleman is still also working on trying to fix the cap, make room, and make sure we're in good shape capwise in two, three, and four years plus he's got a draft to get ready for.

theres a whole lot of stuff going on. just breathe or walk away for a while because it's obvious some can't handle the stress.

Yes he will fill our needs, but not with the big names players other teams and getting right now. Like years past we will be stuck with scrubs and hope we can win 7 to 8 games this coming year. Bottom line we just don't have the money to get big name players the year or next year. Hopefully in a few years we will be able to finally get some big names to play for us. But for now we are stuck with scrubs or old guys to fill out holes.
