You're you. You're eliminated this week of Minnesota Windsor. Are you lose your out? Right. And all likelihood you're going to lose the game. Now Tyler heineke at quarterback. If you have Cam Newton, you're all likely you're going to lose the football game. But house Ron Rivera h shows you Rivera did not want to shut him down. Rivera's thinking about his job and him as head coach down in Carolina. And it was the owner and the GM. Rightfully show thinking about where they are at what they need to do for their organization Heller. They they need to take long term. What are they doing? Makes you wonder. I mean, you know, hey that we still got a chance they'll put out there. We're going to try and win every game. It's like all right. Look, there's two weeks left. You haven't won in forever. I mean. Just jot it down I grew Brad. Thank you brother are moose. You got seeing a little bit see about an hour. All right. You got. It have yourself a good morning. I just didn't understand it from a Carolina perspective two days ago from rod Rivera. But I think I I think you have the understanding now on this Thursday morning is that Carolina and Rivera was thinking about his future. And the Carolina Panthers were thinking as an organization about their future. When I mean by their future is making sure that their franchise quarterback is trying to get that shoulder back to healthy as quickly as possible and get them set re get himself ready for the two thousand nine hundred campaign something that we said yesterday. I mean, it's just logical sound all be morons everyday life. Let's be smart. Sometimes you could end up making the smart decision. And ultimately it might end up being the wrong decision. But you thought it out. At the time you made it. It was the most logical choice. And when you are when you are a billion dollar franchise. Maybe just short of that. But you get the point when you are an NFL owner. What's the one thing you want when you look at your team? Now, it's not a big left tackle were running back or wide receiver wanna make sure you have a franchise quarterback in and I guess Cam Newton's got some limitations at the quarterback spot. He's never thrown to a high percentage over the course of his career. But you've got yourself a franchise quarterback. He's the face your team. He's the face of Carolina panther for Manny football. Machado, it's gonna be simple. Do you want the most amount of money? Well, that And draw the most you happiness want to protect for that. you. I mean, look what the Or? Indianapolis Colts did with Andrew luck. And it Do cost you wanna them play a year the place that year. you wanna Plus. play and that you would love to play? Would you be willing?
