In Topic: Ron Rivera: "Greg will be here at the right moment/appropriate time"

I really don't see the NFL allowing Greg to come back w/o some form of suspension... they caught way too much flack over the Rice incident to not at least do something...


He's already suspended and made inactive by the team. He's already served one game short of what the NFL claims to be deemed on first DV conviction.

If cam and co repeat last weeks performance, I like our chances. Otherwise, Rodgers is gonna pick us apart and Eddie lacy is gonna run roughshod.

The packers are basically injury free. Good for them. So tired of panthers always being banged up. Charles Johnson needs to have a good game.

enjoyable for other teams to have options in the future.


That's another less favorable/savory way of looking at it, but if a guy hits his ceiling with us and is past or in his prime, at least we get that production at minimal cost.

I'm first and foremost a fan of the panthers as a franchise. What's good for the franchise and the product on the field is what I want. I like the brand. TD, Cam, Luke, Olsen, star, short, Benjamin and Hardy are the only players it would embitter me to see go somewhere else. They are the heart of the franchise as I see it and everyone else could come and go without me fretting.

Ginn and he is the one player I hated to see go. I'm a huge Smitty fan be We just couldn't afford to keep him and the locker room issues were just too much to stomach considering his actual production. We really miss Ginns ST ability more than we miss Smittys playmaking.

I know fire sale sounds extreme but it's in the best interests in my opinion.

In some ways that is a good sign. That means we are doing a good job of acquiring talent and developing it.

There is actually some correlation between teams that consistently receive compensatory picks and those that have sustained success.


That's what I'm thinking too. I mean, why waste time with players that can be easily replaced with similar athletes who have something to prove or haven't had a fair shake for whatever reason?

Losing CJ, Godfrey, DLo and Stewart will put a 20 million cap hit for next season then would come off the books the following season. If we see another cap increase next season, that could make up for the big hit.

I'm still optimistic Hardy will sign a 3-year deal with us which would shore up our pass/edge rush for a Super Bowl run or two over his tenure. Again, I feel he's as valuable as any DE in the league.
