Last night during his post game press conference, Panthers quarterback Cameron Newton was frustrated and had no answers for his teams constant struggles.

Newton was so befuddled, that he offered up a suggestion box to anyone that could help figure out how to right the wrongs.

I think Panthers owner Jerry Richardson may have been the first to slip a suggestion in that box, because according to NFL.com, Panthers general manager Marty Hurney has been relieved of his duties and fired.

“This was an extremely difficult decision,” Richardson said in a team statement. “Marty made every effort to bring success to the Panthers and took the team to a Super Bowl and two NFC championship games. Unfortunately, we have not enjoyed the success we hoped for in recent years. I have the greatest respect and admiration for Marty and will always appreciate the way he tirelessly served the organization.”


Hurney in a classy move released his own statement, and wished the organization well.

“As General Manager I will always regret not helping us win the Super Bowl or having back-to-back winning seasons. I hope this change starts accomplishing the direction to those goals. I understand this decision by Mr. Richardson and will always have an extremely close relationship with him. I consider him the best owner in the NFL. I am responsible for everybody in coaching, the players, the scouts and everybody in football operations. After six weeks, we are 1-5 coming off a 6-10 season.”


Without a doubt it’s on Hurney.   He chose Ron Rivera to be the head coach.

He co-signed investing $89 million in two running back that are never used.

He drafted Cameron Newton.

Hurney’s firing is simply Richardson’s warning shot.

Everyone in Carolina should be on edge.
