This is a foolish debate to still be having. Yes I am as worried as anybody else about Cams injuries. But if your wrong on this you lose one of the most gifted and unique talents not just the Panthers but the NFL has ever seen. We have been spoiled by years of Cam to think hey we will just find another one next year or Allen is a franchise qb. These guys are extremely hard to find.
A guy who can ar his best not be just top 10 but the best qb in the league? Are you kidding me?? I know it's a risk but I say like he said let him write his check.. I can stomach the potential loss of guaranteed money at the quarterback position vs say what we wasted on Matt Khalil and DeAngelo William's and Jonathan Stewart and add in Jake. We have made plenty of bad signing in the past that look like no brainers now.
This is not one of them. None of those guys were MVP face of the franchise among the best to ever play the game. This guy is.. sign the MFin contract...
What a lot of people don’t realize is that hedge fund managers are, by nature, risk-averse. Now that doesn’t mean that they won’t (or don’t) take risks, but they’ll hedge the risky with plenty of risk-averse “safe”.
They would rather make $30M on a lower-risk investment than take a major risk to make $300M.
And that’s OK. That’s the financial sector where you’re playing with other people’s (big) money.
But now, as the owner of the Carolina Panthers, every dime at this point is his OWN money, but he’s still displaying those risk-averse “50-50” instincts.
Retain “great talent evaluator” (lol) Hurney.
Still playing the hedge fund investment game.
But this ain’t a hedge fund. “Risk averse” half-measures are only going to guarantee continued mediocrity (or worse).
