Who thought it was a good idea to give Teddy 60 million? Tepper should’ve never kept Hurney last year. If we had hired Fitterer last year instead of this year, it would’ve never happened. Fit would’ve stepped in and told Rhule, Brady and Tepper that he’s not signing Teddy.

This. I would be half as hard on Teddy if we were paying him half as much money. It's the pricetag that's attached to his mediocrity that makes it so hard to to handle.

I feel bad for Teddy. I mean damn, he seems like a great enough guy. He did his best. He wasnt good enough but he showed up and didn't complain and even after all these months of fans saying he is trash, he kept himself quiet and took it. 

I for one salute you Teddy. May not have been a solution we needed but thanks for taking all of this with class. I guess when you get a big fat paycheck helps a lot, but there are many other divas in the league that would have made a huge stink of this situation.

To bad the panthers didn't watch any film on Teddy before they gave him that contract. Do some research next time for f*cks sake!

Hurney was the experienced person in the room so film wouldn't have helped reach reality.

Luke is a very nice guy but he is also someone who would tell it like it is. You have to acknowledge reality and move forward accordingly as an adult.

All that being said. I do not believe for a minute that it was all Marty Hurney making the decision to open up the bank vault for a Bridgewater signing. He is not Snidely Whiplash and he was already on his way out of town anyway. Those who ultimately made the decision remain. I fear a major contributing factor in the signing was the need to save face after the disastrous PR effects of moving on from #1 the way we did. I can only hope they have learned a great deal from that experience because if not we already know what is on the horizon.
