Voth seems to know his stuff this offseason, so there's no reason to doubt him at this point, for me. Nothing groundbreaking here, but he interprets what he believes is the heart of the "issues."

Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman, in Orlando at the NFL owners meetings, made his first extended public comments since last month’s Combine on Tuesday. While he didn’t accidentally drop hints about upcoming bombshells like he did in Indy, he did share a handful of useful nuggets.

As always, there’s more to be gleaned from much of what he said, so here are five take-aways:

Like this guy a lot.  Although its hard to read the tea leaves he does make good points without emotions.  Really is big props for Gettleman.

I think you hire coaches to develop guys. If the price was too high then the price was too high, but speculation like that is beneath Voth. Poor conclusions with no substance.

Number 3 and 5 sound like some bull..you don't have to polish a turd because the panthers are poor right now.

I hope we don't let Hardy just walk. Trade him for picks in a deep draft at the very least. Barring a miraculous draft, it's hard to envision this club winning the Super Bowl next year. It could certainly happen, but if sustained success is the franchise goal then a trade netting a couple young and promising players might be the best alternative.

That being said, it wouldn't shock me if we ultimately cut Johnson next offseason to sign Hardy to a long term deal. The cap savings from that move would be enough to pay Hardy the money he wants in year 1.

Sucks Hardy will likely play his way out of Carolina, enjoy watching him wax offenses.

Like tea leaves, he is vague to the point that right or wrong becomes interchangeable.

That article pretty much read like my worst case scenario. I hope he's wrong because of he's not, tagging Hardy was a huge mistake. Bell at LT is the sum of all fears. Godfrey sucked before blowing out his Achilles. Cutting our only proven NFL WR with no big cap savings is completely indefensible as a pure "football move".

Don't mean to be raining on parades here, but like I said, that article was pretty much outlining my worst fears.

Bell will be a franchise LT because he's left handed is a fucking disaster waiting to happen.
