why do speak of rumors as if it's fact?

Pretty sure it was confirmed that he had called teams at the bottom of the first round trying to trade up?

Hurney himself said as much in interviews and Clausen did as well.

- Carolina Panthers general manager Marty Hurney spent much of Friday trying to move up in the draft to take Jimmy Clausen, a day after the Notre Dame quarterback was a surprising first-round snub.

Hurney couldn't strike a deal, however, and when Arizona traded up to the 47th slot -- one pick ahead of the Panthers -- Hurney acknowledged he was crushed, sure the Cardinals were going to take him.

Panthers coach John Fox was at the other end.

"He told me he was trying to get up to the 33rd pick," Clausen said. "He was just really excited to have me on the team. I told him I can't wait to get there and go to work."

Why did you post this horrific memory? Man if this would have happened and he traded away the OVERALL #1 for Pickles? Holy shut I don't even want to think about it.

However, this does illustrate just how stupid Hurney is.

we have no idea what is being discussed behind closed doors and with what players. yea of course we are starving fans that want to see our team make a splash, but i wouldn't off yourself just yet because we haven't seen much action. now some should have offed themselves a long time ago.
