Panthers Relieve GM Gettleman of Duties

6 posts in this topic

Surprised by this, especially the timing, but the reasons speculated so far make sense.

Though I agree with a lot of the sort-of "hardball" moves he's made (cutting Smith/Williams especially), it seems clear now that he didn't handle them with any sort of tact. The thought that the same behavior could've led to Thomas Davis and/or Greg Olsen moving on from the team is a scary one.

I really think it's the respect/tact thing. Richardson seems huge on the honor thing. The players really matter to him. He can't let someone else sully that reputation and especially not now with guys as beloved as Davis and Olsen.

So I've seen a LOT of anger to the bringing back of Marty Hurney. I can see their anger, but so far he isn't full-time. Funny thing is I had a guy on reddit try and tell me that the Cam and Kuechly draft picks were 'no-brainers'. xD  When most draft experts had Gabbert ahead of Cam, and had other players rated higher.

I can really see Hurney getting the 'full time' job though. Even though I think Ryan Cowden will be in heavy consideration.
