PUP a possibility for Stewart

And if that were true, then G-Man would have disposed of both them this off-season. Yet, he didn't, now did he?

Did you miss the whole Hurney fiasco and how DG had his hands tied?  He couldn't just off guys....Hurney made it so he will have to wait to get out of some of these deals.

Nice try, but D-Will could have been released as a June 1st cut, and G-Man wouldn't have suffered a massive cap hit. Hence why fans believed D-Will was good as gone this off season prior to the restructure.

maybe, just maybe gettleman knew stewart's situation long before it was announced and decided to play it safe.

Gettlemen is just sitting on his hands....sorting out Hurney's mess legimately starts next year.  Which also just happens to be when DG will know who the HC will be.

And yet we still have Tolbert in our backfield. Like I said, we weren't truly handcuffed with D-Will.

it is about how and when you get out of horrific deals....not just if you technically can.  Hurney definately handcuffed DG with several players.....and DG seems to wisely being in a holding pattern setting up for what the end of this year brings.  So he can legimately build the team as HE sees fit for whatever coach is employed.

I hope it's another case of Stewart sitting out now and dominating in the regular season. But if he's going to miss a bunch of time we should probably think about moving on. Tolbert could become the bull dozer, Williams can still play at this level for awhile. Barner can be a good change of pace already.

I'm not worried. Stewart doesn't have injury issues so I have been told.

Get over it. We easily could have cut the cord with D-Will this off-season and saved. We didn't. You don't have a case with this "handcuffed" notion (regarding D-Will). If G-Man were interested in remodeling, he wouldn't have wasted an entire season to get started.

Enough with the conspiracy theories already.

and we could save MORE room for 2014 by waiting.....2014 is what Gettlemen has penciled on his calendar. 

 

You can't remodel this year....with a hot seat Rivera that was forced on him.  That makes zero sense.   Jerry Richardson is king of creating the awkward season.   No way for DG to do anything except set the stage for next year to make the perseonel moves

Actually, yes he could have remodeled with Rivera still around (it's happened before). So again, your logic is merely a hypothesis that holds no weight.

Riiiiight, I'm sure Gettleman concluded that enduring D-Will for another season was financially sound with Poole, Smith, Stewart and Tolbert still around.

look, if you think it would make sense to make big personel moves for Rivera knowing that he is bad start away from being fired....and you will then have to go out and hire new coach who you will need to build around for him to have success.  So be it. 

 

You have to realize Rivera being on the hotseat he is....dictates some things if you are the new GM. 

 

DG wasn't brought in to add to the Hurney mess.  DG, while I am not a huge fan of, I do applaud him for setting things up the best he could to take this team down whatever road he needs to after this season.
