From Scrooge to Daddy Warbucks in less than a week. Either way we is screwed.
This. As a bad team the media is going to criticize every decision we make regardless pf it's validity, simply because we went 2-14 last year. I'm not saying all moves were optimal but each player we resigned performed within or at the top of the top 10 players in their respective positions last year. With the new rookie pool and cap rules, vets are going to be paid more; these contracts are going to be in line with what you'll be seeing in 2-3 years.
What we need to realize is that Hurney is rewarding our good players, and setting up a league-wide opinion that the Panthers are an organization that is not afraid to pay for talent.
