A Final Hurney Horror

Still have time to note that Marty Hurney is the worst GM in The Lig.

He has managed to tremendously overpay for Charles Johnson, but that is predictable as Johnson was a Marty project, so signing him to a huge deal makes Marty look smart. In Marty’s world. Also overpaid for Thomas Davis, probably DeAngelo Williams too. And $12m. for a 38-year-old kicker? Nuts.

Marty does not seem to understand that the goal is to get 25, 26 starter-quality bodies on your roster. At the end of this crazy free-agent period the Panthers will have — what? — 17, 18 starter-quality guys? 20, maybe? The OL is a wreck, need another CB (minimum), oh, and a back-up QB.

    I did my best to listen to the Big Cat’s interview on ESPN’s Mike and Mike this morning. I couldn’t take it. The guy could teach Strom Thurmond lessons in filibustering. In the part I was able to stomach, he spoke a number of words, very slowly, in what seemed to be complete sentences, that imparted zero information.

    The Panthers can’t sign a backup QB. See that would mean no roster spot for Tony Pike and suggest that taking Pike last year in the 6th round was a bad idea…

    Move him to WR/KR with Armanti Edwards. LOL

    I am going to miss John Casey.

    Drafting a guy like Newton was the last straw for me fellas. For a team that could use some strong character players to draft a delinquent like Cam is a real thumb in the eye to the fans. Savvy players like Steve Smith can see the derailment.

    My advice is to just check out until some major management changes are made, because the bewilderment is just going to continue.

    Knowing Hurney’s luck Newton will be the next Ryan Leaf(….or Jimmy Clausen).
