Truthfully I'm all for Gettleman cleaning house. He inherited a mess off a football team. Bad contracts,coaches,players and all. Trust and believe he will turn the organization into a winning franchise. It takes time. We will be going into the draft with a number of picks on our side and cash to grab up some quality " "Proven" FA. Patience is necessary.

Cutting Armanti is like removing the spare tire from your car and expecting it to run better.  There were already open roster spots and AE wasn't consuming cap room.  I

So we cut AE and signed C Brian Folkerts, WR Marvin McNutt, resigned Ben Jacobs and Jeff Tarpinian to PS. What the Hell is going on!! 

Pretty simple really, with Silatolu out that makes Byers, who is the backup center, next in line for either guard spot behind Scott and Wharton.  So bringing Folkerts up from the practice squad gives us a backup center if anything happens to Byers or Kalil.  Bringing in McNutt from Miami's practice squad just allows another wide receiver who may have potential to take Edwards spot who is obviously not going to see the field.  So it left us 2 spots on the PS which went to Jacobs who resigned back on the practice squad and Tarpinian who is a developmental player.

 

We have had pretty good luck bringing in guys from the practice squad who actually contribute and in some cases have started.

i really hope so. this team is too loose and too happy when game time comes. they need to be hungry and pissed. they've gotten complacent and comfortable, even when losing. they accept it as just something that happens and just shrug it off. they'd become good losers and that's the culture.


But wait, wait, WAIT!!!

We've been told for over two years now that a sour attitude and distaste for losing just isn't PROFESSIONAL.

Right? ;)

Actually it is more like changing a spark plug with another one because the car was riding rough.  Edwards was cut and McNutt was added who is a WR from the Miami practice squad.  edwards wasn't playing or contributing anyway.

Who said the purpose was to make it run better? If you have a burned out turn signal and a faulty starter you still need to tend to the turn signal.

One thing Im certain of is that people will find away to whine about Armanti for as long as they can.

Am I the only one that is starting to miss Marty Hurney? For the first time in about 5 years, I believe that we have a team that can win but coaching is holding us back. Mark my word, Gettleman is wanting to see if Cam can be a pocket passer, which we all know he is not. Cam will be gone in 2 years b/c Gettleman feels that you must have a pocket passer to win in this league, he has said it before. Richardson should have hired a guy that wants to put a o-line and weapons around him. I really just don't buy what Gettleman is selling right now!!!!

you need a qb that can consistantly convert third downs. Guess where a qb has to be able to throw from on a vast majority of those throws. You will always need a pocket qb in this league, athelthism allows you to throw in more plays 1st and 2nd down.

This is the third year in a row we are sitting at 1-3.  Gettlemen is going to clean house and I am all for it.   He is going to piss some people off, especially here.  I think it is going to start when he refuses to re-sign Greg Hardy to a $12 million per season deal.

It's always "next year" with the Panthers. Throwing away entire seasons as if it were no big deal.

 

Oh, and if by "cleaning house" you mean clearing it out and signing scrubs. We've seen that before.

Does that mean that Cam will be gone soon too (Hurney's pick)?
