4 Things Greg Hardy Must Do to Remain a Panther

Recommended Posts

Why is this site SO anti-Greg Hardy? Did the man not literally used to post here for a hot second? Am I the only one that remembers him asking for coats for the coat drive that was pinned at the top of this forum? That DEFINITELY doesn't make him a great dude, but why all this vitriol? Were any of you there and know exactly what happened? We give people the benefit of the doubt all the time, why don't we assume Hardy is innocent until proven guilty by a jury of his peers?

Vitriol? Where?

We ended up as a top 10 D last year without him. That 2nd half of the season D didn't need him....what they needed to put them over the top was secondary talent.

Hardy is done. He screwed Carolina. Yet people act like he is the victim still.

 

So imagine with hardy playing for the team..

And no he is not a victim he is an idiot (not new) but he is still young,

And if Nicole Holder can forgive him i can do that too, then what Jeremy wrote.

Posting here is irrelevant.

Verdict doesn't matter. Even if innocent he still shows poor judgement....the type that results in him screwing over his team. Which is what happened

and it isn't Hardy hate. It isn't being a Panther fan first. Not being a fan of individuals. Individuals come and go....this fanbase overall IMO gets too attached to players

 

And being a Panther fan first, I couldn't give a toss about what he did affecting our "image" on Jerry Richardson's moral standing in the league. As a Panther fan first, I know he would make the most sense in terms of free agent acquisitions at DE next season when a lot of our other defensive pieces are also coming together.

I don't think it cruel, just the truth.  Greg did have a great coat drive going and probably many other good things.  He used his little head instead of his big head too many times.  That hurt this organization.  We did get by without him.  We will continue without him.  His choice of lifestyle.

I'd rather imagine this team with real secondary talent given the choice.

We can find ways to generate pressure

I am defending Greg but i won't blame others for hating him, Greg did everything possible to anger his fans.

After striking a kid, striking a woman is the lamest thing someone can do.

I'd love to see Hardy proven innocent and come back to the Panthers... that's iffy in and of itself.

 

I could see him playing for the vet min if he was really sincere about playing "for free"... but I doubt that will happen too...

 

 

What I don't get is why Voth says he should give the money back?  I mean I get it that that would be a magnanimous gesture on Hardy's part to JR... but why would he do that?

 

 I mean he was tagged, it wasn't his call to sit him after the 1st game, that was JR's call based on media pressure.  Frankly I don't blame him for taking and keeping that money.  He earned that from his play the season before.

If we got him back on a one year deal worth $4-7 million i would be doing back flips.  There is no substitute for a player like that.  Add a secondary and we have the most elite D in the league :unsure:

I don't get the hate either. The defense looked good but even when we were rolling, the LDE spot was noticeably weak. None of the options there are good at both pass and run much less elite at both like Hardy. Addison and Horton have shown that they are not the answer; Ealy is showing promise and is obviously cheaper - He isn't "there" yet but this might be the biggest problem for Hardy if he is innocent.

 

I think maybe people are trying to protect themselves from feelings. It's like a break-up.. "I never liked him anyways" "he wasn't the one for me". We saw some of the same views and comments with 89. If he is innocent, I want him back. The way front offices have been bending over and grabbing their ankles anytime the media is upset combined with the Cap/contract issues that we still have make me reluctantly pessimistic.

Reallly I get it. I really do. But some of this is so incredibly disrespectful. Giving money back? It's not like Greg was a hold out, like he didnt want to play here. Greg Hardy was suspended initially because of a knee jerk response due to another player on an entirely different team. This just became an issue because of media pressures. Its the flavor of the week and we got the short end of the stick. If he wants to remain a Panther, that option needs to be explored. I dont know why the case has anything to do with it because he was already found guilty of assault. So a second opinion somehow makes him innocent? It doesn't.

 

There are tons of guys that should be indicted in the NFL and many of them haven't step foot on the field. This will play in our favor. We discovered depth and developed talent on the defense this year. But Greg Hardy is a special guy... a franchise talent, that wants to play here... that made a mistake... that will be available at a cheap price. Sign him. 

 

We can take those draft picks and focus on giving Cam the weapons he needs. Stop being afraid of the big bad media, build a brick house team and start winning.

    • Employer dependent medical insurance ties employees to their employers and is most costly for startups, small businesses and the self employed.  Medicare allows workers to change jobs without fear of gaps in insurance coverage.  Lose your job, lose your employer for profit insurance.  Again, no worries with the M4A system.  M4A has no copay or chance of being cancelled due to long term illness either. Medicare is the most cost effective means of delivering healthcare coverage in the nation and has been so for over 50 years. Medicare covers elderly and disabled Americans, demographics that typically require costly medical assistance. Medicare isn't a "crapshoot" it has a long history of success in this nation. Bottom line:  Only one industrialized nation doesn't have some version of universal single payer healthcare and that is the USA.  Suggesting the USA is incapable of doing what all these other nations have been doing for generations is insulting.  The USA currently spends more per capita than any other nation on earth for healthcare while achieving the 37 best outcomes. The current system is broken and inordinately expensive, creating a financial drain on families, businesses and our nation's economy while simultaneously failing to provide coverage for tens of millions of Americans.  It is long past time to address this elephant in the room. https://morningconsult.com/2019/07/02/majority-backs-medicare-for-all-replacing-private-plans-if-preferred-providers-stay/
    • While I agree it is a huge loss for them regarding the perspective of the rest of the season, Mack wasn’t going to do dick against our tackles anyway. Our backup TE stonewalled him a couple of times. That’s the 2nd time we’ve played him and Armstead and Strief/Ramczyk has put him on a milk carton. The only teams he can feast on are teams with trash offensive lines or dumb coaches that can’t scheme to neutralize him.
    • Indeed, the Bears are in a VERY tight spot with Trubisky who’s looking like a massive Trubust, especially with what they gave up to get him AND what was on the board when they picked. There was one pass that Bridgewater tried that I did NOT like and was one I was terrified he’d try in a close game that would result in a boneheaded turnover. I don’t remember exactly when it was, but it was about a 20 yard pass to the end zone that he tried to fit between two Bears defenders and I groaned when I saw where it was going thinking it was an easy pick but thankfully it was dropped. And I agree, Brees definitely would’ve carved up that defense. At least 4 sacks in each game or total in both games? And Khalil Mack definitely does have a supporting cast like y’all considering they were a top-5 defense before today. WERE. And LMAO, what?! Um no. Absolutely not, I would not rather Poe or McCoy next to Jordan. That’s just a straight up homer comment right there, LOLOL. Why would we need McCoy or Poe? We’re not trying to get AARP memberships. Our defense is giving up fewer points/game, fewer yards/game, lower 3rd down conversion %, and a lower 4th down conversion %.  And that’s without even getting into the contracts. Here’s what y’all are paying McCoy and Poe... McCoy (31 years old) - $7.9M Poe (29 years old) - $9.3M Now here’s what we’re paying our starting tackles... Rankins (25 years old) - $4.07M Brown (25 years old) - $2.5M Y’all MASSIVELY overpaid for Poe, so bad that y’all likely going to cut him in the off season if he doesn’t take a pay cut or restructure his deal because there’s no way in hell y’all pay a 30 year old NT $13.3M next year. McCoy isn’t even under contract for next year and even if he is re-signed, both of y’all starting DT’s will be on the wrong side of 30 and grossly overpaid due to their names alone. Meanwhile, Rankins will be on his 5th year option (and more than likely extended) while Brown enters the 2nd year of his 3-year deal he signed in March and combined they’ll be making SLIGHTLY over what y’all have just Poe counting for next year (~$13.7M combined, $7.7M for Rankins’ option and $6M for Brown).  Y’all better get drafting and replenish with some cheap talent. LMAO, are you seriously clinging onto that Week 17 game last year that we had zero interest in? We had the #1 seed locked up already and had NOTHING to gain from that game. Getting out of that game without any injuries in preparation for the playoffs was the ONLY thought our mind and we accomplished that. Enjoy your token win, I bet it looks real nice next to the other two morale wins we gave y’all in 2006 and 2009 when we sat and rested our starters then too. Hahahaha.
