Panthers Release Hangartner

Recommended Posts

Agree with others that this may be a shot across the bow by Gettleman. I suspect he may not like what he has been seeing in camp and feels it's time to up the urgency.

 

But no one should lose a minutes sleep over this. By the time the season starts, there will be at least 20 to 30 guards floating around either better or equal/younger/cheaper than Hangman.

While I am sure we are looking at a guard... I also wouldn't be surprised if he is just opening up more room to help get Hardy under a long term contract before he increases his value even more.

 

doubt that VERY seriously.....there is no depth at G.  Kug has been injured.  No way this is to no sign an upgrade.

It says "perform or else".

For my part, I expected Hangartner to make the final roster as a backup. Sure didn't see this coming.

Great guy, but yeah, it's a business.

So long Piggy, and thanks.

 

Well said...I think most of us are just concerned.  As of right now we don't have a starting RG on the roster.  I feel like that's an ok thing to be worried about.

 

I understand how Gettlemen is doing business and I like that he is doing it this way but I still see a big hole at right guard and very little depth while a franchise QB can't even step into his throws in practice.

Gettleman's point is that Hangman was not a starting RG. There was little to no drop off with him out. So.... lets save some $$>

slow down there grasshopper......

 

Gettlemen is no idiot. He has a plan that has been up in motion.  He will be bringing in our starting RG in the next day or so......prob either Wharton or Moore.

We all know GH sucks. Great, he's a nice guy. He can still hang out with the boys in the offseason.

 

For too long this team has emphasized having a bunch of nice guys around whether they can play or not. Glad to see that might be changing.

 

this this a thousand times this

 

some of us are still hung over from the hurney era where being a nice player, popular with the fans, and having chemistry with everyone else took priority over having actual talent. gettleman is dropping the hammer and i love it.

Hangman has been one of the most terrible offensive lineman in the league the past couple years and has brought down the entire line at times, not jsut the right side.

 

 

If I had known that cutting him netted us 2mil in space, I would've been screaming for us to do it months ago.

I get that...but you don't know what he's gonna do any more than I do.

 

You're just being optimistic...I'm being pessimistic. 

 

I'm sure he will bring someone in...may not be who everyone wants it to be though.

God I hate the media....they are idiots.

 

Checked out Rotoworld on this.  They were saying how bad the line would be because the starting RG would be Kug (who has not practiced yet).  They are too stupid to know that Gett would not release their starting RG without another plan already in motion.....and that plan is not a DII rookie who has not even practiced yet.

I think chemistry on the o line is incredibly important. They are protecting the man that this franchise lives and dies by. Like the rest of yall, I hope Getts has someone coming in today or tomorrow that is an upgrade. But if this is a pure financial decision, then I will be pretty bummed about this to say the least.

I am being realistic.  Gett is not an idiot.  There is no way that Kug is his plan....as he has not even practiced yet.  Gett has made smart moves this offseason to upgrade areas of weakness.  This is just the next one on the list.

 

I am not sure who he brings in....but I will guarantee you that somone is coming.

 

My gut tells me Wharton.....though my hope is for Moore.

Thank you Jesus. We don't have to watch him get put on the ground every other play.

Oh man, everyone is exploding over this. If you go back and watch him get terrorized with 0 run push and 0 pass protection you'll love Gett's move

Getts watched our entire 2012 season and there was no way he didn't see Piggy's awful performance.. I'm glad he's gone.. he was a backup who ended up starting

Piggy is a good backup C option.
