So I know the feeling. 25 years in the Navy and I had to go. The military is a young man's job. When I left it hurt, it hurt bad. When I took that uniform off, I cried. I gave my youth to the Navy and this country, I poured my heart and soul into it. And when I had to go I cried and cried hard.

Think back to the Chicago game a couple of years ago when Jake got hammered. He was ranting and raving like a bull getting stuck with a hot cattle prod. But you knew, that was a mistake. Jake at that moment, wasn't gonna let us lose. Game Over. He willed his team to win, he did it more than once. Those come from behind wins, came from his nature to give it all.

You take all the passion, fire and desire to be the very best, away it is gonna hurt. BAD. Every year for about 5 yrs we talked about drafting this and that but rarely did we talk about QB. Except for the haters. We didn't need to. We had our leader. Jake was the man. God knows, I believe it was time for him to step down You don't play like he did and just shut it down. I could see this day coming.

Those of you the call him names and think it is about money. Get a life or go F_k yourselves. Not every player is about money. I would bet Jake would give all of it back to have his skill level back to where it was when he was on top of his game.

WOW truly unbelievable. The man was The Carolina Panthers and you think it is just a game. WTFever.


I couldn't agree more. My oldest Brother was in the Navy 12 years, similar situation. My Dad has been a Raleigh firefighter for 24 years, he doesn't want to retire because he loves it so much, and he loves the guys he works with, but he has to retire at 62.

Yes, Jake gets paid an exorbitant amount of money for what he does, but it's the passion that makes him who he is.

The ones who are jealous about the money and call Jake a pussy, are the very types of personalities I wouldn't want playing for the Panthers. Thank god none of you are good enough to suit up and play in the NFL...

I feel bad for him, but I got what I wanted: Moore as the starter. Emotional day for Jake, but he'll be fine after a bit. He's had a helluva run.

it's on panthers.com and espnnews is showing it every 30 minute show for about the last 10 mins. When he says "I'm sorry if I keep my head down, but there's people in here that'll make me even more emotional if I look at them..." gets me every time.

I don't see how anyone can continue to hold a grudge against him after seeing that. You see players all the time who seem to ONLY care about their money, their endorsements, can't play until I get a new contract. Did Jake get paid well? Absolutely. But if the only thing he cared about was his bank account, you can bet your ass he doesn't walk out there with that much emotion. He went out there with the intention of saying goodbye and his emotions got the best of him. It happens.

Jake gave his heart and soul to the Carolina Panthers. Was it time for him to go? Yeah, it was. But why the hell would you continue to rip on him now? To make yourself feel better? I wish every player in that locker room cared as much about this franchise as he did.

I couldn't agree more. My oldest Brother was in the Navy 12 years, similar situation. My Dad has been a Raleigh firefighter for 24 years, he doesn't want to retire because he loves it so much, and he loves the guys he works with, but he has to retire at 62.

Yes, Jake gets paid an exorbitant amount of money for what he does, but it's the passion that makes him who he is.

Fire and Police and the military are fraternities like that. Very hard to let go even if you don't make it a career. I think it has to do with the closeness is developed between the people you work with. Working towards one goal.

Nice post. It's good to read something that's written by a grown up every once in a while.



Thank You

That interview was heartbreaking. I'm crying watching it. Our coaching staff did not put him in a position to win in both the playoff game against AZ and the past season. I think that falls on Davidson. Or maybe Fox in trying too hard to get Jake's mojo back.

I wish all of our players cared that much. Hell, if Pep cared half as much, can you imagine how well he'd do?

I hope that Jake's intensity rubbed off on Matt and that Matt is the leader that Jake was.

I wish Jake the very best.
