A one point, late in the 3rd quarter I think, Mixon said the statement I knew someone would make during the preseason at some point. The Dolphins rb was tackled from behind and Mixon stated "Cox pounded the dolphins running back. " He probably never even saw the humor in that.
I always heard it was the way he treated the media and other members of the panther's organization. I have heard of a few accounts where he berated members of the media in buffalo, here and in indy both verbally and a few of them he threated to kick their ass in the locker room hallway after a game had ended. I have also heard about the same kind of treatment he gave to the members of the front office on the team he was a GM for at the time. If Jerry knew about some of that it is no surprise to me at all he was let go, weather he left on his on or was fired.
I can't remember a year when the Panthers kept 10 O-linemen. I remember, under Fox 1 year, they kept 10 D-lineman but never 10 O-lineman. 9 seems to be the max for most teams and some teams only keep 8 with all the extra room teams have now on the practice squad. So I am not saying it won't happen but the likelihood of it happening seems low.
Willis was the highest paid MLB in the NFL before he retired this year. Just north of $11 million a year. That was the highest contract for a MLB ever, and still is. I can see Luke getting $12 million a year, anything more than that and someone should check to see if Gettlemen is getting some of those FIFA kickbacks.
