A WHOLE PIE!

The sudden release of Armanti Edwards has Panthers fans scratching their heads. Not because they feel Armanti deserved a roster spot, mind you, but because of the timing. Armanti was released on a Tuesday after a game he was barely involved in and made no noticeable mistakes. On a list of players who were at fault for the loss to the Cardinals, Armanti would be near the bottom. Commence head scratching.

 

It is becoming clearer now that 2013 is a year for David Gettleman to clean house. Unproductive, often injured, or otherwise irrelevant players.... watch your back.

 

Jimmy Clausen, Jon Beason, Armanti Edwards, David Gettis. All players that have been Panthers mainstays for years, but have contributed little on the field. Marty Hurney would have held on to these players out of sentiment and the promise of one day contributing.

 

Apparently, David Gettleman is not the sentimental type.

 

The Armanti Edwards release was a shot across the bow of the Panthers roster. Improve, produce, or get gone... no matter how well you are liked personally. Panthers players have become relaxed in their position on the team. If I were you I would not be laughing on the sidelines during a loss, or you could be next.

 

Don't think for a moment that the coaching staff has not noticed as well. If Gettleman can release a panthers mainstay player with the flick of a pen, then he can do the same with a coach. After all, it is the coaches who have failed to develop their players into aggressive performers with a winning mentality.

 

What seems harsh to some is actually the mind set of winning franchises. I guess that's why we are not accustomed to it.

 

A cleaner, meaner Carolina Panthers franchise is in our future.

This offseason is going to be fun.  Gettleman is setting us nicely to be active in free agency.

We aren't going to have any other choice.

 

Between our own FA, guys signed to 1 year deals, and the surprise cut or two, we will have a lot more spots to fill than we can get in the draft.

 

This team is going to look much different next year. Whether that is good or bad is the unanswered question.

So, the only real question is......

 

 

Manzeil, Clowney, or a trade?

 

Addition by subtraction is not gonna fill the stands.

I hope that's what he's doing because so far I haven't seen much to show me a pattern of his plan...

Wasted season. Said it before it started DG wasn't looking at 2013 but 2014...

Jerry forced him to endure RR but he wasn't going to help him.

He is getting rid of Hurney guys....what new GMs do. He will find his own guys to be painfully loyal to. For example, why he cut AE over Hixon. Hixon just as irrelevant at WR and sucks on ST.

We might finish the season with a 41 man roster

Maybe because Hixon actually has caught a few TD's in the league?
