Not in the NFL, but I've played enough sports and experienced enough of the same sort of thing in the Army that I understand it. What have you done that would compare?

I've played sports (high school level and below only) and I served in the military. While I understand what you're trying to say, I think it's a bad analogy. I don't get how people can equate the two.

i dont think it is that fact that he cried, but that it confirmed the emotional attachment he had to jake. if he cried like this for jake, dont you think this same emotion may have clouded his judgement on when to bench jake? did he cry at mike minters retirement?


They all cried at Minters retirement and they all cried at Ruckers' retirement. They sure as hell didn't shed any tears when the media asked them about Peppers though.

Why do people think this is unusual anyway? Fox is not the first coach to get emotionally attached to a player, and he certainly won't be the last. Just because this was a hard decision for Fox, that doesn't mean he didn't think it was the right one. In fact, I got the impression that he was sure this was the right decision.

Again people connecting dots that arent there. Fox is not the first coach to tear up after realeasing a player. Delhomme was everything you would want personality/drive wise as a player. Of course they would be sad

It's simple...these guys spend about as much time together and go through as many challenges as a soldier does. For instance, how much time do you think Fox gets to spend with his wife and kids during the season, compared to his players and coaching staff?

Now only if we could get him as sad about mediocrity.

The same as countless people in Charlotte that work harder and make a fraction of what he does. Gimme a break.

wow

players and coaches demonstrably get teary-eyed when long-time veterans who've played a major team role in the past leave (that's the key here) but let's all just reach deeeeeeeeeeeeep up our asses and use it as a reason to decry fox

i'm just as in favor of bringing in coaching changes as anyone else, but come on... this is taking it too far

I'm so glad this happened. Business over loyalty. He can cry all he want, as long as he's focused fully on the future

Who cares. I spend more time at my jobs than with the ones I love like everyone else, I also wouldn't ball my eyes out if I got fired from my job even if I really enjoyed it. Time to move on. Emotions will enhance competition but at the same time emotions can completely kill it.

A lot more than some grunt that's in the field for 3-6 months at a time or god forbid over in some other country for a year or more in a war.

I love all the internet message board tough-guys here calling Jake and Fox pussies for crying... must be nice to sit behind your keyboard and tell everyone how tough you are.

If you put as much heart and soul into something as Jake put into this team and don't cry when it's over, then you are a sociopath and you should be locked up somewhere.

Fox owes his success as a HC in large part to Jake... for 7 years these guys have worked, ate and slept on how to make each other and the Carolina Panthers successful and now that's over. Any good coach is more than just a coach to his players. How can a coach inspire his team if they just think of him as "the boss"?

There are allot of 13 year-old boys on here that get uncomfortable watching a grown man cry... I feel sorry for anyone that has never experienced anything powerful enough to make them cry, some of you need to get out from behind the keyboard and get a life.
