THIS .. especially the bolded part. But this whole paragraph is spot on.


Given how RR and gang operated in the free agent market last year, I expect them to lean more on the draft, supplementing the roster with capable, under-the-radar type free agents. Sometimes a gem will be uncovered (Logan Thomas), but more often than not, we'll find decent depth that can fill in when injuries hit.

Having said that ... they may swing for the fences on one guy again (like they tried with Amari Cooper last year) ... so ... they could go after one of those big $$$ QB's out there.

But I think they really want to build this roster via the draft. Last year's was pretty productive so far. We do that again, we'll be on our way.

Re: Haskins released

Getting 6 starters on low end FA contracts this year should win Front Office exec of the year for someone if we make the playoffs

Journalisic supposition. Right now RR is focusing on the season and I don't think he has given the front office that much thought, that, like player contracts, is something he will sort out when the season is done, I will give him the benefit of the doubt given the results so far

Sorry but if you dig deeper.....of course it takes a couple years to build a 2-14 team up, so there will be a few years with losing seasons. One year with a 7-9 record they won the division. The last two years the biggest reason they had a losing record was because Cam was out. Also in their division the Saints and Falcons were both very good most of the time. I donít know if Smith is your guy or something, but heís not irreplaceable.

Bottom line Hurney sucks compared to Smith. If Smith leaves you'll see the talent will decline. I've watched football long enough to know evaluators like Smith don't grow on trees. I'm tired of 29 years of losing and mediocre talent, we finally have a young guy that is building this team into a possible powerhouse and you are going to replace him with an old mediocre evaluator? No thanks, one 15-1 season in 9 seasons doesn't do shit for me.

Are we really talking up a guy because ONE TIME they made a super bowl appearance?

You know who else did that, SUPER BOWL APPEARING COACH JEFF FISHER.

Ron Rivera did 9 seasons in Carolina and only 4 of those seasons were considered "winning" seasons. The other years, he finished either 6-10 or 7-9. When he was fired during his last season, he was at 5-7 but for all we know he could have went 5-11.

I'm still skeptical of Ron because I don't think he is this savior for this franchise like so many people thought, but I am willing to trust him for a few seasons to see if he can succeed where everyone else has failed.

But I also don't like seeing so many ex Panthers hired. At times it seems like we are the Washington Football Panthers. I would rather see them go a new way with a fresh face as GM instead of always getting re-tread, fired guys to come here.

It's normal for coaches to bring in guys they are familiar with, who know their philosophy, etc. Happens everywhere - in every sport - at every level.

Re: Haskins released

It's ok to be skeptical. I like what I'm seeing so far, but we're only in the division race because Dak got hurt and Wentz forgot how to play QB. We'll see what happens moving forward, but this organization is definitely in better hands than it was last year.
