    Cam Newton needs to man up and quit his childish mopey attitude.

    Hurney -- Panthers. Del Rio -- Jaguars.

    Over the past 2 seasons, I think the Panthers have the fewest wins of any team. Hurney has been the GM since 2002 and things don't seem to be getting better.

    I'm not going to be surprised if Ron Rivera gets canned pretty soon.

    Their defense has been horrible for a while and they haven't done a whole lot to fix it. I'd expect the coaching staff to be fired no later than the end of the season.

    YEah, that's what I meant. Didn't they just hire Ron Rivera?

    Something like 80 or 90 million between a full back and two running backs..

    Yeah.

    Hurney built this team for John Fox's old scheme: pound it with the running backs. When they got rid of Fox and got Rivera, I think they didn't know what they wanted to do offensive scheme-wise.

    They've got these two great and talented backs and they never use them. And I think, I could be wrong, but I think their offensive line is a mess now and even if they tried to convert over to more of a run based attack, they'd be screwed.

    It was intimated that the owner, who had a heart transplant, wants to see a winner before his days are up.

    I don't follow the Panthers but, while the team isn't in disarray, it doesn't seem to have a clear path of where it is headed.

    Cam had a sensational rookie campaign, but seeing him at the podium yesterday was.....pathetic. This is the guy you've pretty much pegged as the face of the franchise and he's all..... "man, something's gotta change... I just ain't feeling this"

    Per ESPN

    To me looks like Hurney was this year's early scapegoat and it things don't pick up fair or not it's likely Ron Rivera can be on the chopping board next.

    I can't believe ProFootballTalk is already talking about whether Carolina should give up on Cam Newton.

    I am not suggesting anything for the Texans but as a theoretical exercise I wonder what Kubiak would design for Cam Newton.

    Well, I hear he does a great play action on 3rd and 18. :D

    After seeing post-game after post-game with his mopey attitude I wonder what he's like in a private lockerroom. It's one thing to be frustrated, but he has crossed a line or two when giving those post-games.

    I'm very interested, but with questions.

    This job (The HC gig) will end up being offered to Wade Phillips (among others). Just my prediction.
