Panthers Release Hangartner

Recommended Posts

If cutting him saves us money he could be using that to throw at Moore since he will likely command for than the vet minimum. Smart move if that's the case

you don't make a cut like this (a starter, even if he does suck) without having somebody who you are sure is going to sign. He can't think we can rely on Kug just yet.

 

I think Brandon Moore is in play right now.

Im not saying he should be a starter, he obviously knew he was already on thin ice after drafting Kugbila. Releasing him completely is what is questionable to me. We all know that depth at oline is our biggest weakness, thats all im saying... Being friends with our best leaders and team captains may sound arbitrary, but I've got to wonder if those guys are thinking the same thing that I am.

The Observer just published an article singing his praises this morning... lol

 

 

The truth is he just wasn't cutting it.

Slightly off topic but If we replace hangman with a big upgrade, will that help bell play to a higher level? Maybe gettle found the missing piece to a decent (at least average) o line.

I could see that.  A lifetime backup being a starter isn't exactly what the Panthers needed.

Again and again Gettleman has sent the same message, I suggest you all get it along with the players on this team.

 

This is a business and then a family. You will get paid, per what you are able to do, if you make to much take a cut or be released.

 

I get what you are saying but the timing is what bothers me about this...what does that do to the psyche of your offensive line (which has had struggles) when you take away a vet who has been running with the ones throughout camp?

 

I like the precedence that Gettleman is setting but I just wish he had done this before camp.  If Moore or Wharton is signed they won't even be able to practice (in pads) for two days.  This is just a recipe for early offensive line struggles in the first month of the season.

I think it's too early to judge this decision.  If we use the cap savings to get better help and/or extend people that need to be extended, then that'll be fine.  But if don't use it for anything, I don't get it.   Let's see.  Gettleman has been money so far.

Proof this is not a "Let's All be Friends Year."  Hangman was a great guy, but they were paying him to be a starter, and the judgement was made he wasn't up to snuff.

 

Gettleman did him a favor by cutting him now when he has a shot to make another roster.

 

But make no mistake, this is only the beginning.  Gettleman has made it clear the expectation is to win this year, and there will be consequences for those who can't make that happen.

 

It has been over 4 years since our last playoff game, and over 7 years since the last playoff win.  It's unacceptable.

 

Gettleman has referenced several times how well the players have been treated in this organization (and the insinuation is maybe too well). 

 

JJR isn't getting any younger, and he knows what winning a Superbowl means to his legacy.  With the unfortunate passing of one of his sons, it does highlight the very real possibility ownership moves from the Richardson family when the team is sold when Jerry passes.

 

I believe the team will always be in Charlotte, but at this point in his life, I think winning a SB is the most important thing for JJR professionally, and Gettleman has been given the responsibility and authority to make it happen.
