What becomes of a fired general manager in the National Football League? Does he fade into the background and join another team in a lesser capacity, perhaps scouting or player personnel, hoping to again prove his worth and earn the opportunity to run a franchise? Or, does he join the staff of NFL Network or ESPN and remain in the public spotlight, passing entirely baseless and harshly critical judgements over the decisions of his once, fellow peers? Or, does he merely fade into the abyss, never to be heard from again? expected of the renegade and firebrand (former) GM of the Carolina Panthers, Marty Hurney, has rejected the dismal fate of his predecessors and has trail-blazed a new path: Blogging on Cat Scratch Reader under the persona 'Hurneynator'.

His mission? To enlighten a downtrodden fanbase, and earn back the respect of loyal Panther fans he inadvertently 'hurneynated' (before getting unceremoniously 'richardsonized').

Thus continues the next chapter in the ongoing saga of mankind's final salvation, Marty Hurney...AKA The Hurneynator.

Will Atlas Shrug?


Slightly old, but an excellent article from a converted Cam Newton-hater chronicling just how dependent the Panthers offense has been on Newton through his first three years relative to any other quarterback in NFL history, including the likes of Peyton Manning, Warren Moon, and Matt Ryan despite the dearth of weapons and eroding offensive talent around him since he was drafted.

Source: USC S/LB Dion Bailey met with Panthers


USC junior free safety Dion Bailey has met with the Carolina Panthers and the Cincinnati Bengals, according to a league source. Bailey intercepted five passes last season and had 61 tackles, 6.5 for losses. The converted linebacker is drawing middle-round grades from draft analysts. He was named second-team All-Pac-12 Conference. Bailey ran the 40-yard dash in 4.6 seconds at the NFL scouting combine and bench pressed 225 pounds 14 times at his campus Pro Day workout. At the combine, he had a 34-inch vertical leap. He recorded 222 career tackles and 11 interceptions.

Incredible Dave Gettleman Article


Rare insight on the Panther GM who clearly shies away from the spotlight. Talks about his tireless work ethic, affable personality, talent, long and hard dues, and how much the Giants truly lost. Lucky to have Gettleman in this organization.

Melvin White- Secret Superstar?


Where did this come from? Melvin White graded as +3.2 against the Giants last game! Congratulations on the honor, and hopefully Melvin can keep this up!

Luke Kuechly Nike Commercial


Think this is Kuechly's first commercial. Nice to see him getting some props! Hopefully the first of many.

Sport Science: Cordarrelle Patterson


Pretty cool feature on Patterson (catch radius comparable to Gronk, Spiderman reaction time, elite acceleration, and total testing comparable to Dez Bryant and Greg Jennings). John Brenkus could make any player look like a future stud.

DeAndre Hopkins- Steeled by Tragedy


Excellent piece by Robert Klemko on USA Today on Hopkins. We all talk about players overcoming incredible challenges in life; most notably, Shamarko Thomas and Sharrif Floyd (and pretty much anyone on Yahoo's Dream Chasers segment). This link reveals that Hopkins should also be put into that category.
