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.

The Bobcats ???? naaaaawww...Things are never as good as you think they are, and things are never as bad as you think they are. Wait until minicamp, after the Free Agency frenzy is complete and the draft is complete we can make a pre-assessment of our 2013 season. We will pick up a few good players at a good bargain before the draft.

This is Gettlemans first year. Give him an opportunity to do his job with his limited budget. You can't blame him for Hurneys mess.

Free agency is for filing needs and in the draft you draft best player available. I don't see any needs being filled at all.

I thought he said:

"If we do this right, you and I are holding up a trophy with Mr. Richardson"

What is right? Sit back and watch 31 other teams try and better themselves?

Hurney screwed us people...we probably needed 7-8 big money guys to restructure and so far we haven't hit that.

We need most of them to take payouts...

Wow.

I read yhis entire thread.

I came up with two things.

#1 - obviously Gettelmen is hurney 2.0 and we should go ahead and get going on the first of hundreds "Fire Gettlemen" threads.

#2 - Maybe the fact that we had the talent on the roster to beat the falcons towards the end of the year makes him believe we might not have such glaring holes that we need to go out and over spend in FA.

Hurney never had any problems getting under the cap and getting the guys he wanted.

Too bad the guys he wanted sucked.

Imagine if he had traded up for Clausen for example...(like he wanted to do)

He overcame a pooty OL, one of the least producing RB committee's.....and had us in every game last year.

He had 5 TDs, 0 INTs vs Atlanta. He averaged 250 in the air and 100 on the ground in the two games against them. Yeah, he had some help but the kid was the Panthers. We have been on his back since he arrived.

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.

I'd rather be mistaken as an apologist by an idiot, instead of being the idiot.
