The Hurney bashing will remain as long as contracts such as Deangelo's exist within the team. Once his mess is cleaned up, then people will forget about him.

As GM Hurney is the primary reason the Panthers have been the failure they are the last 5 years.
Going forward Hurney's ignorance hinders our every move.
Not considering and learning from his incompetence begs for continued failure.

Last 5 years yes, but from 2001-2008 he was doing pretty good you know, I'm not arguing that Hurney was the poo and should have never been fired, he should have been fired when we Let Fox go, I'm just saying that people just need to get over it, aka crying about spilt milk.

All it does is make you loud and annoying, because it changes nothing.

Saying Hurney is the best GM in Panther history is like saying Jake Delhomme was the best QB in Panther history... Sure its true now but it means nothing because we all know that they are below average compared to everyone else.

This silly ripping of Hurney needs to stop, the guys gone and it is in the past. Get over it.

I haven't given Hurney two seconds thought since we hired DG, maybe you should too.


At least until you spent time responding to this thread.

So you're telling me Gettleman is already better than Hurney by signing mediocre guys for 1yr deals?

better than 4 years, $12mil contract for mediocre talent, right?

yes....gettleman is already better just based on that contract alone. hurney overpaid. gettleman doesn't. how is it not obvious?

until that mess is cleaned up, and not just deangelo, but all the players he overpaid over the past few years, we will be constantly reminded when we see deficiencies on the roster without the cap space to address them adequately and holes created in key areas because we spent all our money on running backs and broken linebackers.

Different market now than before. All 32 GMs now look better than 1-2yrs ago

you guys act like 1 year deals are some sort of newfangled innovation never seen before. In fact, go back to just last year and most players with question marks got trial deals that were 1 or no more than 2 years, with minimal guaranteed money.

this is the way other teams have been handling business for years to fill their roster. it's just finally reached carolina after the beathard protege was run out and replaced with a more wily executive.

there's no reason not to rehash this subject, especially since we're still being affected by it, that is unless you are a proponent of groupthink and judging by your posting it seems like you promote that kind of social structure on here since all you seem to write is "QUIET GUYS OR ELSE YOU'RE JUST A COMPLAINER HUEUHUGHHUEUEUGH"

What amazes me is Hurney's all encompassing failure at his job. Even with renowned horrible GMs like millen, you can still look at them and peg their weaknesses against a list of strengths

hurney was literally terrible in every aspect of his job. It's just remarkable.

This hyperbole is getting ridiculous. Hurney was better than Millen and isn't in any sort of running for the worst GM ever. He was good at drafting, but always lost trades and overpaid some of his own guys. He did some dumb and infuriating stuff and deserved to be fired, but I can make a list of 10 worse guys from the last 5 years. Plus, he did draft a lot of good players.

I'll be sure to come back to this thread when the Panthers have kicking troubles this year. I love how people bash Mare because he missed two crucial field goals, yet we have a terrible kicker as the number 1 guy right now.
