You know CJ isn't going to re-sign next year.

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 into 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.

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

Underrated question...we have a horrible cap situation for 2 years and an arguable lame duck coach so I wouldn't be surprised

We still got time to do SOMETHING in FA...sad fact is that we're screwed until 2015...

Only if we sit on these contracts....and Hurney's players. Gettlemen is going to need to start taking an axe to some of this mess.

A lot of these young guys don't understand "No Money" they have watched our Gov't spend money it didn't have all their lives. Why can't the Panthers. Sad.

I was quite young when Bush threw us in the war in Iraq and spent an abhorrent amount of money. When someone laid the actual numbers down, I was a new man.

Three things you'll hear every apologist say during the start of free agency.

1. Use the "cap" excuse while all other 31 teams whether they have plenty or are just a tight as ours makes significant moves

2. IT'S ONLY BEEN A FEW HOURS/DAYS/WEEKS/MONTHS CALM DOWN!!!"

3. And the most laughable one of them all "That's not part of the plan! That's not the way we do things!"

Three things you can count on the Panthers do to every offseason

1. Redefine the term bargain hunting. Whereas most teams seeing it as getting good players for good deals, the Panthers literally make every effort to show their cleverness/ faith in "the plan" by signing players who would struggle to make most NFLrosters/not pose a direct threat to one of Jerry's boys.

2. Not doing anything, regardless of the time frame. Except maybe some tennis.

3. Adamantly stick to their plan, and recite tired dated cliches about their philosophy which apologists will then take as religious text and recite it on the Huddle over and over again for years and years like some sort idiotic parrot even though the Panthers experience losing season after losing season because they refuse to come into this century. By boy gee golly, least we ain't gotta go admittin that we been doin it wrong.

    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
    • Shep, Curtis Samuel, maybe Charles Johnson--Funchess in year 3--that could be solid.  Move KB to TE (or keep him away from the Krispy Kremes) and this could be a special group.
