We all saw how he mismanaged the Steve Smith and Josh Norman contract situations, so I wouldn't say it came out of nowhere.

Agree, but I'm talking about how it came less than 2 weeks before they open camp. That is a surprise. This usually does not happen at this time of the year. You usually make this move in February or March.

Bills still have the strangest firing. Right after the draft? That was odd

I agree on the timing. I guess once Jerry has had enough, he has had enough. Looked that way when he canned his sons anyway. With Gettleman going from the super bowl to ditching his entire secondary and starting over, I don't find the move a surprise, however.

I guess the timing was unusual, but as a panther fan it's good news. We got rid of an awful exec, and maybe now we'll get to see 87 retire as a panther.

I think awful is a bit hyperbolic, he was not bad.

Timing is relative; when do you make a change? End of season as you prepare for draft? Following draft? After failed personnel decisions?

The same timing issue happens with coaching changes. I think arguments could be made for both now or later.
