I got in the car last night just in time to hear Bill Polian take a caller question (Late Hits, I believe it was) on the outlook of the Panthers, what he thought they might do in the draft, how he thought they'd done in free agency so far, and how he believes the 2013 season will go for them... Thought you all might appreciate a wrap on the segment...

He believes that Gettleman has set the team up in good position to be able to select the best available player in the 1st...

He believes the importance of retaining Munnerly cannot be overstated...

He identified the areas he believes the team needs to add talent or depth to, (no surprises) WR, OL, DL, CB, S and LB...

When asked how far he feels the Panthers will go in 2013, he directly stated that the team would go as far as Cam Newton would take them... He specifically said "are you getting the Cam Newton of the last 6 games, or the Cam of the first 10 games?"...

He said that (paraphrasing here) now that Urlacher and Lewis are out of the league, Kuechly is the league's premier MLB, and a player you build a defense around for a decade...

He does not feel that Smith's successor is on the roster currently, and seemed to hint that our biggest need was a true #2 receiver...

Basically confirms the feelings of many here, and much of what has already been discussed...

Nice to hear. Seemed like every time Polian opened his mouth he was taking a shot at the Panthers. Love to hear that about Kuechly.

Polian's THC level?

It is interesting though that he speaks highly of Gett. I have nothing to back it up but I feel like Polian thought Hurney was a huge idiot.

I don't think Polian trusted Hurney at all, he seems to have found a new perspective about the Panthers since he sees Gettle means business.

Yup, Polian gave Gettleman his start in this business - but I agree with just about everything he said.

Polian knew Hurney was a cap guy - not a football guy. Hurney had not gone through the discipline of being a coach, scout, etc...

It's like Mark Dominik and Buddy Nix said on that phone call...once you've got a franchise QB you can just pick BPA and be fine.
