#2697593 So, lets see what Smith has to say (via David Newton)

Posted by TylerVagyler on 15 March 2014 - 10:10 AM

I'm convinced that we will look at this move years from now as the biggest mistake in Carolina Panther history.

 

It won't top Delhomme's contract and the 2010 spending spree.

 

With out those things we wouldn't even be in this situation.

You mean he's upset he got released????

 

SHOCKER!!!




#2694144 Hurney Legacy Good or Bad

Posted by TylerVagyler on 14 March 2014 - 08:30 AM

2009:

Everette Brown (gave up a first round pick for this guy)

Sherrod Martin

Corvey Irvin

Mike Goodson

Tony Fiametta

Duke Robinson

Captain Munnerlyn

 

- Outside of Captain, all are trash.

 

2010:

Jimmy Clausen

Branden LaFell

Armanti Edwards (gave up a 2nd rounder to get)

Eric Norwood

Greg Hardy

David Gettis

Tony Pike

RJ Stanford

Robert McClain

 

- Absolutely terrible draft outside of Hardy

 

2011:

Cam Newton

Terrell McClain

Sione Fua

Brandon Hogan

Kealoha Pilares

Lawarence Wilson

Zach Williams

Lee Ziemba

 

- Cam was a great pick. Everyone else sucked.

 

These 3 drafts along with his spending spree hurt this franchise badly. To say Hurney was a good draft evaluator is a joke. Despite his F- performance in the post-lockout offseason, Hurney was known as a cap guy for good reason. Before those big deals were dished out he usually had the team in a good situation cap-wise. Sure he gave out a few bad contracts (every GM does) like the Delhomme deal but overall he did a good job. He should've been let go when Fox left. Seeing Fox leave, I think he felt the pressure from JR and went "all in" with the core we had. Unfortunately, that core wasn't good enough. At least not for the money they got.

What does that mean?

 

Sounds like we are waiting for this Smith ordeal to passover before we get to business with the others.

While waiting for #Panthers to release Steve Smith, Nicks & LaFell were in a holding pattern. Panthers interested in both (again for LaFell)




#2689323 Evaluation, my ass! Distraction? And where the fug is Jerry? ***RANT***

Posted by TylerVagyler on 13 March 2014 - 12:44 AM

Unitas, Peyton Manning, Brett Favre, Donovan McNabb, Seau, Jerry Rice, Joe Montana, Emmit Smith and many more were let go in some way by their team.

 

Smitty isn't the first great player to be ousted. 




#2689160 Smith was viewed as a distraction by Getts

Posted by TylerVagyler on 12 March 2014 - 10:56 PM

I really don't know what thread to post this in considering there are at least 100 Smitty threads. But....

 

I just want everyone to realize Steve Smith is not the first great player to be let go in some shape or form like this. Unitas, Peyton Manning, Brett Favre, Donovan McNabb, Seau, Jerry Rice, Joe Montana, Emmit Smith etc were all franchise players let go "when the time was right". I am sad to see Smitty go. He is my all-time favorite player. But not all careers will have a fairy tale ending like Gross'.




#2685495 Do Gettleman and Co Feel the Panthers Overachieved Last year?

Posted by TylerVagyler on 11 March 2014 - 08:46 PM

We most definitely overachieved. 




#2683418 Geoff Hangartner Retiring

Posted by TylerVagyler on 11 March 2014 - 11:07 AM

Not a huge loss to be honest. I'm not even sure the team had intentions of bringing him back.




#2682679 2005-2013

So let's compare one of the best seasons any WR has ever had to a season of a 34 year old with a poo OC.

 

Cool story. 




#2682045 Panthers attempting to trade Steve Smith.

Posted by TylerVagyler on 10 March 2014 - 06:22 PM

I am told that absence of Steve Smith's jersey from #Panthers official store is about him adding Sr. to it. Nothing more.




#2681416 Report: Jeff Byers and Chris Scott to re-sign

Posted by TylerVagyler on 10 March 2014 - 03:11 PM

Scott was solid for us. Great depth being signed today.




#2675474 Why did Gross retire?

Posted by TylerVagyler on 05 March 2014 - 10:17 AM

Congrats, OP. You've made the worst thread of the offseason.
