Kenny Phillips, Kerry Rhodes, Drayton Florence and Chris Gamble.

Okay so this will never happen but there's an above average NFL secondary out there right now.

Gamble is retired. Give it a rest already, he made his money and now he's living the life.

With Johnson's huge cap hit in 2014 and 2015, I expect that there will be another re-structure happening.

 

Why on Earth would CJ restructure again?  I'm sure his agent will stand pat and force you to overpay or cut him.  If the latter happens I'm sure he'll be a high end FA, once again.

 

Face it, that meag-contract Hurney signed him to was ridiculous.

Not call in you out or anything CRA, just an honest question and anyone feel free to answer.

What FA is there out there that is going to magically fix these issues?

I honestly don't know who is left out there. Usually it is old guys or scrubs at this point.


There isn't one guy to magically fix anything....

There were plenty of guys before the season started where we good of upgraded from utter slop to somewhat okay. Do that at several spots and it makes a difference IMO.

Too late now. We knew about these glaring holes before DG was hired. Didn't need to bring in big names to improve given how weak we were....there were bodies though IMO

Unless he's spending it on a new coach, I don't care.

We still want to win this year and Getts is negotiating with Kenny Phillips to get him in here.

 

Those are two completely conflicting statements.

I said it would never happen. It still doesn't change the fact that three of those four guys are not retired and could help the pitiful situation our secondary is in.

Coach doesn't show up or affect the salary cap.

Yes, they are pretty bad. Gettleman is still trying to dig out of Hurney's mess but looks like there is not much he can do but kick the can. Ive been saying it all sunmer,[b] we are still a few years away[/b]. Seeing the reality of that is what sucks.

Bright side: I don't have to pay a playoff ticket invoice this year.

 

I have to ask..If you're still a few seasons away, what are you going to do about Cam?

 

If he's not the answer and it's time to move on, do you draft his replacement or look to FA.

 

 Conversely, if he plays well and hits FA, Carolina will have to over-pay (ala Johnson) to keep him away from teams like the Raiders and Dolphins.

 

I'm sorry, this isn't looking good for the Panthers faithful

Because I'd like to think we won't pay that much for 1 player (especially a DE) and I think Gettleman is smarter than that. I think it's a short term fix for now and hopefully will be addressed again.  But you're right, the short term fix could be cutting him. 

I am in no way denying that Hurney is an idiot.  It was a ridiculous contract.

That rat faced, coke sniffing motherfuger Hurney burned us for years. Fortunately we hired a guy from a winning organization as GM and not a fuging journalist, he is now in the process of cleaning up the mess and taking out the trash.

 

It may be years before we can truly compete within the division, but at least by that time Drew Brees will be retired and Matt Ryan will be past his prime!

 

 

So the plan is to out-wait the winning teams in the division??  Good luck with that.

 

Also, Ryan will be in his prime well into his 30's.  He's a cerebral player, not a player that relys on physical gifts.

it won't look good until either ron learns how to manage a game in close situations or we get someone in here who does.

 

so basically it doesn't look good.
