    Yeah, I threw it here, since we literally just played them.

    It won't stay here for long..

    Living here in the DC area I can see that alot of what past Redskin players have said about management could be true. Coaches and Owners cant stop players from speaking their minds and things get around alot faster these days as compared to the 70's, 80's and early 90's

    I wonder if Richardson would be interested in hiring Jerry as their new GM?

    In the middle of a season?

    Even the Browns are letting Holmgren reach the end of the year.

    Probably means Ron Rivera is on his way out too. Personally, I thought Ron Rivera was a poor choice for a head coach. His first move was to draft Cam Newton first overall. That IMO spoke volumes about both Ron and Marty Hurney.

    The Carolina Panthers announced Monday morning that general manager Marty Hurney has been relieved of his duties.

    The move came a day after a 19-14 loss to Dallas gave Carolina a 1-5 start despite it having one of the league's higher payrolls. The Panthers' record is the worst in the NFC.

    What is this you say?

    A GM gets fired for not producing results?

    What kind of business model is this?

    Mistake, in my opinion.

    Get the new guy in there so they can start scouting for the spring's draft.

    What new guy in mid season though? The hot name will be Eric DeCosta in Baltimore. They'e not going to let him go right now, so they are going to fly without a GM for the rest of this year most likely.

    I'd rather fly sans GM and just let my scouting department operate independent of that leadership than continue with Holmgren at the helm.

    Can you imagine how much better off the Browns would've been with RGIII? Idiots.

    At what point is RGIII out for the season though? He isn't a running back and isn't conditioned to take the pounding a running back takes. With him running as much as he is, at some point he is going to get creamed. Not to mention concussions. Hell, he has already had one concussion this season. I suspect if he continues running, he will have a short career.

    I got ya. I was still talking about Carolina. He for sure is out.

    I suspect Joe Banner will assume that role in Cleveland so I wasn't even thinking about them.

    Panthers are the only team in the NFL without back to back winning seasons. Hurney has been there since Polian went to Indy. That's a long time of not building upon success.

    Panthers fans have been wanting him out for years. They wiped out their team beside a very few players during the lockout. The defense has been bad for years. The team is in shambles.

    Texans?

    I know they probably erase that this year, but wasn't last year their first ever winning season? Or did they go 9-7 or better in 2010 and I am just spacing it off? I could have sworn they were sub .500 until last year.
