John Fox's philosophy leads to the need for come from behind victories

Good thing Jake has had a knack for it...too bad we didn't get the ball last in the Super Bowl (which matters more).

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.

Fox wants to win by a Kasay FG every game. He likes to win close and lose big. This year its working, but for the past couple years it didnt. It'll be interesting to see if this philosophy will bring us another winning season next year.

When I see threads like this, I wonder if our fanbase is just insane. Or perhaps they don't watch any games besides ours. This is the NFL, not college. You don't come out and blow teams away 42-0. Every opponent is tough, and you are sometimes behind in the 4th qtr.

Guys like Elway, Staubach, and Montana were the come from behind kings. I guess the only reason they had to do these things is because their coach sucked.

Personally, I've always been frustrated with John Fox, win or lose. I just don't like his style plain and simple.

****ing idiots.

No coach in the NFL is going to coach a team to play relaxed with a 7 point lead.

Just like some of us wish fans that think its too cold to go to the game would find another team.

Or the fans who don't cheer at the game, or stand up.

Or the fans who tell other fans they are too loud at the game, or want them to sit down.

There are way worse infractions than simply disliking the head coach.

You're the one who's insane. It's clear by the fact that you jumped to the "EXTREMES" with your 42-0 comment, as if anyone expects that, ever. Didn't even expect 34-0 against the Chiefs earlier this season.

NO LEAD IS SAFE, but some are safer than others. If John Fox could win every game by a 7-3 score, he'd be satisfied with it, even though that type of game will clearly come down to a few INCHES here or there, which is a 50/50 style of play...AT BEST. Anything goes wrong, and you'll probably lose.

No lead is safe, but at least try to make the other team have to SCORE TWICE to beat you, instead of barely squeaking by. His philosophy IS TO SQUEAK BY.

That's my problem with him. If those "come from behind kings" coaches WERE PERFECTLY FINE WITH EVERY GAME BEING A SQUEAKER like Fox clearly is, then yes, they sucked.

I don't care who you do or don't like as long as you have a passing knowledge of football and a logical reason for your hatred.
