Matt Rhule on Panthers not drafting a top QB: I wasn't the GM, I didn't make the picks


One of, if not the greatest downfall of Matt Rhule's tenure in Carolina was the failure to secure a franchise quarterback. Nonetheless, the former Panthers head coach claims that he doesn't regret how he handled his drafts.

The new University of Nebraska head coach joined The Rich Eisen Show on Tuesday. When reflecting on Rhule's time with the Panthers, host Rich Eisen asked him if he would've drafted a quarterback earlier on given what he knows now.

Hmm . . .

Well, given Rhule's czar-like, um, rule over the franchise, he probably had more than just "a lot of input." Rhule, as included in his massive seven-year, $62 million contract, had final say over all roster decisions in Carolina.

Nonetheless, he went on to big up what he and his front office didn't pass up on.

To be fair, the Panthers do have themselves one heck of a trio there. Brown is having an emergent campaign, Horn is already one of the best cornerbacks in the game and the rookie Ekwonu has gone 10 straight games without allowing a sack.

So despite the mess he left behind, Rhule also left Carolina a few sweet parting gifts.
