If the Panthers have had the ability to come from behind, which in many cases means waking up offensively, then they had the ability to be playing that way the entire game...
...but they don't, primarily because Fox doesn't mind "getting lucky breaks" as long as he gets a win.
Thus, my frustration with John Fox.
If your team played the entire game like they did during the comebacks, they'd have never been in that position to begin with.
Panthers score a TD...relax.
Other team scores...Panthers wake back up.
Panthers get a field goal...Panthers go back to sleep.
Other team scores a TD...Panthers try to wake up, but go three and out.
Other team gets a field goal...score stays were it is for most of the game.
Panthers score a TD...defense has to try to hold. They do.
Panthers get a field goal.
Jake gets a "come from behind victory."
Play it close. Hope you get a break in the end...that's John Fox's philosophy.
Try to blow a freaking team out and stop relaxing each time you get a "SMALL" freaking lead.
