    Have to say I really don't get the firing of GM Marty Hurney at this time. I understand they've been disappointing but timing to me is odd

    Hurney isn't responsible for all the weekly drama w Cam

    I totally get firing a GM after the season not sure I get it during the year

    Ross Tucker ‏@RossTuckerNFL
    I'd probably fire a guy that gave over $43M guaranteed to 2 RBs that my team doesn't even use, too

    Alex Marvez ‏@alexmarvez
    Marty Hurney getting knocked 4 paying so much $$ for RBs. Coaches deserves blame for not using them properly. Moves weren't made in vacuum

    Albert Breer ‏@AlbertBreer
    Again, Hurney timing is unusual ... But results are results -- 9-29 since start of '10; Last winning season: 2008; Last playoff win: 2005.

    It was stupid to give 2 RB that type of dollars in today's NFL you give a top flight guy some money but they need to be extra special and you fill in with solid capable backups

    Well one of them they had to keep because he was good (think it was Stewart). There was the other RB that got hurt for the year if I'm not mistaken and they still gave him a new contract while getting Tolbert from the Chargers.

    After Cam Newton threw the playcaller under the bus yesterday, I wouldn't be surprised if more changes weren't in the offing. He "sweethearted" a reporter, too, so I'm sure he getting dogpiled for being sexist today as well.

    Any player who speaks up in the NFL is labeled a troublemaker. The truth is, in this case, there's a very good possibility that Cam is right.

    Any NFL quarterback that offers up the solution of a suggestion box for his teams struggles can't be taken seriously.

    Perhaps Cam needs to spend a moment or two looking in the mirror and ask what he could do better. Perhaps not throwing a red zone interception. Or annoying his teammates by sulking and celebrating while down 23-0 to the Giants.

    Obviously not because he got fired and he's not the owner :D

    I would have traded one of the RB's and used the money and draft picks on that defense. Granted they are older, but think of the Bengals with a Jonathan Stewart or a NYJ with DeAngelo Williams..those teams would be pretty darn good and only give up a middle rounder or two.

    Why are they a bad organization?
    They are always near the top in attendance--or at least in the top 6-8 teams.
    They even make the playoffs every 3-4 years and even win a game or two.
    What's so bad about them?

    I agree that they really screwed up with how they handled the RBs--both drafting and paying them--but the overall organization is not bad.
