Rivera said it has nothing to do what Avant said after the game.

I read he was cut because he questioned the play calling. I believe he did the same in Philly.

No he said he didn't fit what the Eagles were trying to do. He took that upon himself

He was known as one of the most friendly and team oriented guys in Philly.  They loved him.  


If Philly can love the guy...someone legit has to be going wrong for him to speak out.  




these were my initial thoughts and I said "are you fuging kidding me" out loud

im tired of ppl saying he could have spent that 13 million in other areas of drastic need when signing that type of talent would cost more than the 14 million guaranteed and future dead money once subpar talent on the market would have eventually been cut. Hardy was the gamble to keep this team competitive for one more transition year and give us back to back winning seasons.

Hardy is one of the most talented players in the league who still hadn't hit his ceiling and he fuged us majorly

Don't know that yet in reality.

Him being hired and told you have to straighten out x, y, and z is a job assignment. Not loving all Hurney guys doesn't mean he won't overly show love to his guys once they get established.

This was his first real offseason. You could easily argue what hurt us most was the front offices decision to "over invest " at one postion (DE) at a clear detriment to the rest of the team. Being against the Hardy tag can be viewed for the same reasons as being against signing 2 guys to featured RB money

He gave no long term money to hardy. 13 million is for one year.

Saying he could have invested in oline, special teams isn't entirely accurate. Maybe if he could have given one year contracts to those guys maybe. But all in all it would have been more than the 13 million to garner the talent that hardy would have been.

And Kenjon barner. I know that's a sixth round pick but....

Last year was such a complete and total success in almost all signings it set such an incredible expectation. There is only so much talent to go around in an offseason at a dumpster diving price.

One mistake I would say he made was not signing obviously athletic, hungry talent that was not I. The right system to succeed. A la ginn, Mitchell. And then we had an opportunity to sign a talent like mikell who was a top five safety statistically. Options like that weren't really available this offseason.

Say we signed Collins who went to tampa that was 15 million guaranteed compared to 13. And hardy is obviously the more talented player. So would you rather have that 5 mill a year for 5 with 15 gauranteed for a tackle that sucks balls (and was basically the cheapest or most reasonable option) or an elite talent that could mask an entire position groups deficiencies?

This season was lost because of hardys poo, cams surgery/injuries and Ron reverting back to his former self for the most part

This was very true back in the Hurney days. I remember the 49ers were super pissed after we signed DWill to his retarded contract because they were in the middle of trying to resign Gore and it jacked his asking price way up. Hell, we gave CJ $20-30 million more than the next team bidding on him could even afford. There wasn't even a negotiation, Hurney just plopped down that massive deal and CJ signed it immediately. Reportedly, "wow" was CJ's and his agents response seeing the money they offered.


With Gettleman I'm not really worried that kind of thing is going to happen, he's trying to set the team up for long term success and is very conscious of how contracts hit the cap in the future. I expect there will be quite a bit of back and forth with Cam (probably a lot more than many fans will like and a lot will freak out). But in the end the deal will get done at a more reasonable price.


god hurney was such a fuging dumbass.


i mean i've never been involved in anything sports related at a professional level and you just know that that is super, super fuging bad business.


i think hurney literally thought of these players as family.

I think it's obvious amino isn't 100% healthy from acl surgery and was made better by surrounding talent. poo even kalil has looked awful in some games.

He was never getting this manhandled before. We could always count on his brute strength and some flash plays. Not so much anymore

#3093937 Want Shula gone? Don't look for Rivera to do it...

Posted by TheRumGone on 17 November 2014 - 07:04 PM

Well I think DG has the stones to do it

Posted by TheRumGone on 17 November 2014 - 11:26 AM

Based on that statement alone Jason Avant is more qualified than Ron Rivera to be our head coach. 



I was thinking the same thing.






someone needs to go ahead and make this a thread of its own.


jason avant literally just called out Ron. And i love it.

#3092508 Cam Newton on those last few play calls....

Posted by TheRumGone on 16 November 2014 - 11:07 PM

What part of "2 seconds" don't you understand? The guy was literally in Cam's face as soon as he took his first step after the ball was snapped. Literally. 


he was being sarcastic.


think about it

#3092210 I don't mind playing for a FG there, but....

Posted by TheRumGone on 16 November 2014 - 08:33 PM

Teeray, if you want to talk stats, Carolina ranked 26th in total offense last year. Having the #2 defense makes a mediocre offense look much better.


dig a little deeper into those offensive stats last year.

#3092185 Looking at the remaining schedules, it looks like we'll be alive at 5-9-1...

i'm not one of these crazy people who thinks we should lose out for better draft position


but we should lose out for better draft position.
