  1. Fox definitely had a large part of the 2010 debacle. His attitude towards mangement, the media, and the fans, especially as the season wore on, was inexcusable for a guy making 6 million dollars. He should have sucked it up and done his job. But there were a multitude of factors in play with the looming lockout, dumping bad contracts, and IMO management being totally cool with tanking to get a high draft pick (although at the time I think everyone assumed it was going to be Luck and not Newton).  Fox was a great coach for this organization from 2002-2008. He turned this franchise around from a low as bad as it could have been. The Panthers were an embarrassment on and off the field in 2001. The 2003 and 2005 playoff runs were amazing. However, I understand JJR's frustration with the lack of back to back winning seasons. As great as 2003 and 2005 were, the failures in 2006 with the talent the Panthers had was unacceptable.  I think that was the beginning of the end. I don't think the 2008 Playoffs could have been salvaged due to Delhomme's meltdown,  but Fox's coaching in that game was horrendous too. Not putting Gamble on Fitzgerald and doubling him was pure arrogance. In retrospect, Fox should have been fired after 2008. Oh well, life goes on. I will always appreciate Fox for what he did to restore the fan base and credibility of the franchise. And ultimately, had it not been for the debacle of 2010, the Panthers never would have gotten Newton and been here now. And I can't really speak for Fox in Denver other than to say what he did with The Golden Calf of Bristol in 2011 was remarkable and what he failed to do with Manning in 2012 was equally atrocious.
  2. I honestly wonder who would win a game between 2 evenly matched teams with Trent Dilfer on one side and Jimmy Clausen on the other. I would give Dilfer a slight edge, but I think it would be close. I have a hard time believing there will be another QB as limited as Dilfer that will ever again make a SB, let alone win one. Dilfer only completed 12 passes for 153 yards and a TD in the 2000 Super Bowl. The Ravens thought so little of Dilfer they didn't even try to resign him after the SB when he became a free agent. Dilfer critiquing QBs now is irony at its finest. At least when he first started at ESPN, Dilfer at least had the decency to preface his critiques by stating the obvious about he could never perform at a high level, etc. As the years have passed, he has become more comfortable with just being called a SB winning QB.  Kind of like a lottery winner who forgets to mention that fact over time as he refers to himself as a multi millionaire.  Peyton Manning at 45 will still be a more formidable QB threat than Dilfer. Brett Favre couldo wait a few more years and still outperform Dilfer in his "prime."    
  3. True. But it's Super Bowl week, and everyone is/should be in a good mode. And in fairness, PU is one of the most likeable trolls I've ever been exposed to in the interwebs. I still have not figured out if he is truly as spastic as his ramblings indicate, needing constant validation for the voluminous verbal vomitings he feels warrant constant threads.  Or if he is truly an innovator in the game of message board trolling.  
  4. PU really is a next level troll. I loathe myself for spending 5 minutes reading this garbage but I couldn't resist. I really couldn't. His trolling has reached the point where I've moved beyond indignation at his mindless dribbles to pure admiration.   Well done PU, well done. You are truly the yin to SCP's yang.
  5. Rodney Harrison is running his mouth again.

    Rodney Harrison got lit up (figuratively speaking) in every Super Bowl he played in.  Jake Delhomme & Eli Manning both carved him up.  I'm hard pressed to remember any other DB in recent memory that gave up some many big plays in the Super Bowl. Cam would carve him up through the air and then run over him on the ground for good measure.  Harrison would never make it in the present NFL where safeties actually have to cover receivers without headhunting.  If Jake wasn't afraid to run his mouth to him, you think Cam would be?  
  6. I met Eugene Robinson about 8 years ago in Ballantyne.  One of the nicest, most gracious men you will ever meet. Took a lot of courage for him to talk to the team about that incident.  Frankly, I think it's typical Joe Person BS that he found out and wrote an article about it.  Should have stayed inside the walls of the locker room.  And he wonders why guys like Thomas Davis put him on blast on Twitter a few years back- it's crap like this and the Brandon LaFell baby mama story. Everybody messes up in life.  I wouldn't want to have my personal skeletons resurrected after 16 years.
  7. It's real now

    When it comes to football, we're the only country that counts 
  8. Got My Rejection Letter Today

    Got my rejection letter yesterday.  Still probably hurts less than John Fox sitting at home knowing both his exes are in the Super Bowl.
  9. I certainly don't think we would be going to the Super Bowl had JJR not fired Hurney and hired Gettleman, but I do hope JJR gets Hurney a ring if we win. The man gave out some awful contracts, but he was a lot better at finding talent than a lot of GM's that have passed through the league.
  10. Heard on MN Radio this morning...

    The Vikings have a good team.  Not sure Bridgewater is good enough to make them a legitimate SB contender.  Overall, though, their team is solid.  Teddy played one of the best games I've seen him play so far last year as a rookie against us.
  11. New Peyton Manning jingles.....

    Please don't break my vertebrae... Never saw that free blitzer... I don't miss that Foxy ball... Amost 40 hurts like hell... Al-Jazeera lick my b@!!$... Cam Newton is MVP...      
  12. Converted my 2 younger brother-in-laws from the evil clutches of my father-in-laws' instilled retarded love of the Cowboys to Panthers Nation this year alone.  Had them both wearing Panthers gear at Thanksgiving & Christmas just to troll my father-in-law. Other than defeating ISIS, finding a cure for CTE, or magically reattaching Ciara's hymen, I don't know what more I could have done for mankind in 2015. In all seriousness, I would love the opportunity to go support the Panthers on this magical season, and the field passes would be a dream come true.  It's awesome that you are doing this.  
  13. Lovie Smith... OUT?!?!

    If Lovie is never a HC again, his last loss will have come against Rivera (got to make him smile, at least on the inside). 4-0 against his former boss (at least as a divisional opponent)   Riverboat Ron wins... Flawless Victory... Fatality...
  14. McDermott is going to be a HC at some point, and I would say it's a 90% chance it's this year.  I don't get the hate.  Everyone should be entitled to do what's best for their career.  I am 100% certain McDermott is going to give his all to win a Championship this year with the Panthers regardless of what happens afterwards. I feel a lot more confident in Rivera being able to keep the defense at a high level with the DC leaving than I was when Chud left.  And in retrospect, that has worked out.  Chud got a lot of stats out of Newton.  Shula has helped develop him (first as QB coach & then OC) into the league MVP and into a consistent winner.  Cam certainly deserves the bulk of the credit, but every year you see QB's struggle in systems that aren't designed to maximize their strengths.  Look right down the road at the Matt Ryan/ Kyle Shanahan debacle. And for those bringing up Shula saying he will wait until after the year to pursue any opportunities, Shula's situation and McDermott's is totally different.  I truly believe Shula is content being an OC, and he wants to prove once and all that we can be a top OC and silence the many people who have trashed his perceived lack of offensive innovation.  Shula has also been a HC at one of the most high-profile jobs in the nation (Alabama), and always has to live with the burden of being compared to his father, which would be even more pronounced if he became a HC in the NFL.  Shula also probably has an extra level of loyalty to Rivera for giving him another chance at OC when national pundits, the local media, and the local fan base (myself included) crapped on the idea of it.   McDermott has never been a HC, and feels like he is cut out for a HC job and wants to be one.  McDermott also has massive connections to Philly, and would like nothing better than to go back there and be successful after being let go when he DC.  The window to get a HC spot is constantly changing, and McDermott will probably never have a better chance than this offseason. I don't think any fan should have any complaint for how each man is approaching their future.  This has been an amazing year, in large part to them.  They are going to give their all for the playoffs to help this team win.
  15. Padded Practice

    Glad to hear this.  Most of the Panthers major injuries this year have been ACL tears, which are non-contact are were going to occur regardless of contact via pads or not.
