You also needed a GM like Gettleman, who could realize the situation and clean house of all the crappy receivers and Steve Smith.
Many fans, have been killing the Panther WR's for years (while others were blaming Cam for their faults), along SS's bullying, and I'm glad GMan realized the situation here and jettisoned all of them.
The other surprise has been Lafell's badmouthing of our practice set-up and team structure. I mean WRs all around the league used to come to Proehl's complex to work with him. To me it was more than one bad apple with a bad attitude. Who knows how toxic that situation had become? Tough decisions had to be made and I'm glad we finally have one of those GMs now.
