Marty Hurney, long time Panthers GM, has been fired.
More to come per Panthers.com
I'm not going to act like I'm not happy that Hurney is gone, but there is a lot more wrong with this team then just the gm....
@ESPN_ColinBlazin 5 delivers 4-1 week. and the guy who drafted Cam Newton, just axed in Carolina. Tells you what the organization thinks of Cam. #bust
"I am very fortunate to have been a part of one of the best organizations in the NFL since 1998," Hurney said."As General Manager I will always regret not helping us win the Super Bowl or having back-to-back winning seasons. I hope this change starts accomplishing the direction to those goals. I understand this decision by Mr. Richardson and will always have an extremely close relationship with him. I consider him the best owner in the NFL. I am responsible for everybody in coaching, the players, the scouts and everybody in football operations. After six weeks, we are 1-5 coming off a 6-10 season."
We now have a lame duck head coach.
bill polian is back....lol
Anybody who doesn't think the problems with this team start all the way up top is either blind, or doesn't want to accept reality. Like I said, I'm glad he's gone and this move had to be made, but it's not all Hurney....
Hurney did some great things in the scouting department. He and his troops did an outstanding job evaluating talent. BUT, YOU CAN NOT MANAGE A SALARY CAP TO SAVE YOUR LIFE!I hope we bring in some kind of amazing cap manager, cause it is going to take a few years before we can solve our cap issues!
Please don't just run out and get Bill Polian back? Let's do this slowly and methodically.
