Deangelo Williams and Stew were signed based on 3. Emotional decisions in this business will screw you hard. In panthers history, just about all the big mistakes were based on emotional/loyalist decisions.
1) Deangelo + Stew big contracts
2) Overpaying Charles Johnson
3) Beason's contract - nothing we could do about this one really.
Not defending Hurney, but Beason is hindsight 20/20. At the time he was one of the best ILB outside of Pattrick Willis and Ray Lewis. Couldnt perdict he would blow his Achilles.
Charles Johnson was potentially about to go to Atl. We just came off a year with a lame duck coach, Jimmy Clasuen throwing 2 TDs the whole year, and Brian St. Pierre was a spark in our offense. He had to overpay to keep him here
