Washington Football Team finalizing deal with Marty Hurney

Then why was this inside information only released after his firing? Why no mention when TB played well. Why not during his signing? Or the off-season. 

   Again, what did Marty’s feelings matter? Did Rhule make the final call or not? On everything. I mentioned numerous times since Rhule was hired that Hurney was there to be a scapegoat for any first year mistakes. I didn’t wait until it was convenient to a narrative. 

Marty was still GM at the time. Heck, Rhule had only been here a little over a month or so.

And as mentioned, Zack doesn't post all that often. But when he does, you can count on it.

This is the type of 1980s thought process that I hope are barely visible in the Panthers' rearview mirror.

What is the best case that a #1 CB can do in a game? 

shut down 1 players, easily beat by just passing away from him. I’d rather have a top shelf LBer or DL that can affect multiple aspects of every play than a CB that really only comes in handy 2-4 times a year.

CB’s are luxuries if you don’t have the other pieces in place. If you have a solid defense in place already they’re amazing to have. See 2015 panthers defense. But otherwise they are expensive money pits that should be used elsewhere. 

also see Josh Norman and the redskins after signing him.

WTF WFT

Someone had to do it.

 

Although honestly, with mild dyslexia, this is what I see every time I see the Washington Football Team acronym.

And it’s because this exact reason he doesn’t even bother much anymore. 

You’d think you’d just take his word by now but instead you usually get a bunch of people who literally know nothing telling him he’s wrong. Ain’t worth it.

Rhule had been here almost 3 months. And he was GM. So what. Did he have the power to sign anyone that Rhule didn’t approve of? No he didn’t. Unless you can point me to any player Hurney signed without Rhule’s approval, it’s just blaming someone who didn’t have the power to act on any thoughts he had. Just because someone put out the “company” line almost immediately after the firing, doesn’t mean the Rhule didn’t make the final decision.

The part that's relevant to the Panthers starts a little after 2:45

At 4:19 you can see the Panthers fans on TV celebrating the Greg Little pick while the Bills front office is essentially celebrating our stupidity

You're making waaaayyy too much of this for reasons I can't begin to fathom.

Never noticed that.

Joe Schoen looks like he just hit the lottery in this clip.
