I believe I need to address something that a lot of us don't get on this forum.
The past is the past. People come and go. There have been good times, and bad. Everything changes at some point.
However, as we embark this offseason, I challenge everyone to say goodbye. What has happened in the past is now the past. Nothing we do changes that.
Many here are stuck in this mode that we're in 2016. Some even go as far as saying we're back tracking to 2015. We can relish those memories and scorn the bad, but the fact is this is 2017. We are not the 2015 Panthers, the 2016 Panthers, or the 2011 Panthers.
We are entering a new stage in Panthers history. 2017 will be nothing like any team of years past. Coaches and players alike will learn from past mistakes and attempt to fix it. New guys will come in and add new wrinkles to our game. New fans will come in to add their flair.
I challenge everyone to not fallback into the past. Don't hold on to things that will never change. Look to the future. Say goodbye.
