Us out of staters rely on Mike Craft and Panthers.com for updates during OTA's training camp, etc. I hope he can get well soon.

Mike is a large man and health can get complicated. I worry about this on a personal level because my father is a very large man. I'm not a praying man, but I certainly hope he doesn't go out like the late, great Patrice O'Neal, also a large man and the best comedian that ever lived.

It can happen to any of us. I knew a guy that worked out and ate right and had a heart attack relatively young. Obviously healthy living improves your chances of avoiding these types of things.

 

I genuinely like all of the Panthers staff. We get worked up about the football side of things but that is only a part of the Panthers organization. The Panthers have good people working for them from ticket sales to community outreach to security. The team website has been improved in so many ways, for me it started with the hiring of Danny Morrison. You get video and audio content at no charge. Even things people don't check often like roster history and statistics have been drastically improved. SIr Purr is great with the kids, It's like he's been trained in being awesome. The Panthers do a great job of providing free events for people that can't drop 2-500 bucks on a football game.

Mike is as nice and genuine when the cameras are not rolling as when they are. Always like seeing him on the sidelines. One of the great guys in the organization. Get well soon Mike.

I always watch his videos on nfl.com, i don't know him but he is an obvious nice and friendly guy.

I wish him a speedy recovery.

I like Mike Craft.   You could tell he wasn't just a media guy work in Carolina.  He was a Panther Fan reporting on the Panthers.

Hey here is an idea, instead of fuging prayers, how about we do something productive like say an address we can send letters or items of encouragement and thanks to?

Some of us feel prayer offers him the best support and best chance of a full recovery.

Strokes are no joke. Prayers out to him and family.

Hmmmm have to wonder why the Panthers haven't told us about this...

Yeah that is slack on their part. Cards, flowers and well wishes tend to make a person fight harder. Provides an extra sense of purpose knowing that people care.

If he asked for privacy I apologize to the Panthers organization for jumping the gun but it is very puzzling to say the least.

May God bless him and his family.  God is the ultimate physician and he seem's to me to be a man of God.  Prayers sent for the big man.
