Over the last few days I've heard people suggest there was no way Jerry Richardson would ever allow the team to cut Steve Smith.  A few numbnuts even suggested that Smith had more power to dictate what happened than Gettleman did.

 

Those theories are pretty much out the window now.

 

Whatever else happens, there can now be no doubt that this is Dave Gettleman's roster to shape and tweak as he pleases (within the limits of the salary cap mess left to him by Marty Hurney).

 

Gettleman is in charge.

As it should be. A boss is not a boss if they have no power over decisions (be they good or bad)

A WHOLE PIE!

It's like we are a real NFL football team, not a happy-go-lucky family atmosphere mom and pop team.

I just hate it takes years to get out of this mess. The Panthers have to be one of the most cash strapped under talented teams in the league.

He is going to make mistakes along the way but everything Gettleman has done so far in his short tenure here has been golden from what I can tell. I expect this move to be no different.  Lots of emotionally brought on "player > team" mentality around here recently. One step back to take two steps forwward.

The owner isn't going to spend any extra dime to improve or win, even if we had the cap space.  Hope the son of a bitch is sitting with his blanket over him in December looking at 30,000 empty blue seats, he likely will since Cam will have nobody blocking for him or anyone to throw the ball to, if he isn't hurt by then.

We could be the Cowboys...

 

But to OP's point its good that G-man has total control over the roster moves.  I don't like all the decisions but as a fan I don't have to.  as long as he does things that in the end make us better then good. 

 

My only concern is that he may have the old school look to the future mentality when we all know this league doesn't jive with that anymore.  You can attempt it but you damn well better be successful in the interim.  NFL = Not For Long
