Sam Mills Fan

As much grief as I've given them, I think the Panther FO has been brilliant lately

58 posts in this topic

Since I have an unfair reputation as always being a "negative nancy", I thought I would bring some encouragement to some fans by showing that even someone as cynical as me thinks the Panther FO has been nailing their decisions this past week.

Letting all these veteran, long-time Panthers go was absolutely the correct thing to do. What this team needs more than *anything* is a sense of freshness to it. All of these guys that aren't coming back are anything but fresh. When you think back to the first decade of Panther football played this millennium, what two words come to mind? For me it would be inconsistency and mediocrity. The poster children for that stale inconsistency and mediocrity are guys like Jake Delhomme and Julius Peppers.

So even if the team does NOT go out and get free agents to rebuild, I'm still going to support their moves this week. I would much rather see young guys like Matt Moore and Everette Brown and Dan Connor and Louis Leonard get chances to prove themselves like these old vets that were just released got somewhere themselves. I'd much rather see them than the same old, unexciting, stale faces of mediocrity that have REALLY depressed this fanbase over the past year.

So I hope you guys are as giddy as I am. These were tough cuts, but today is the proudest I've been to be a Panther fan in a long, long time.

they have made some really tough decisions and have shook this team to the core, I think we had to do this in order to move forward. If another cap is implemented the Panthers should be in great shape cap wise

Pretty much the opposite here.

We got cheaper, not better. Love that we mix a player purge with an anemic set of draft picks and no interest in free agency.

At least the organization is buffered for a work stoppage I guess.

And as soon as we lose a few games you'll resume the endless crying about how stupid everyone is.

this... sadly that is what will happen. Everyone somehow thinks they know more about the team than the team knows about the team. *sigh* Why most everyone bash the FO after we lose a game? Its the clueless that "know everything."

Depends on WHY we're losing those games. I never hate just to hate.

The only move I do not like is letting Brayton go.

JR is saying I am willing to sacrifice my team in 2010 for the NFL.

    • VERY impressive. This was 6 months work last year, intermittent fasting and getting after it with a friend of mine, she's ruthless

    • My worry isn't coming off the bench vs starting, it is Clifford playing him PERIOD. Clifford is absolutely terrible about giving young guys the burn they need to develop. Even when you had guys like Bismack looking like they were on the verge of figuring things out and averaging some great numbers per minute, Clifford wouldn't know what to do with them. Granted we haven't always had the best of young or rookie talent around here but NOTHING Cliff has done in his time here tells me he knows WTF to do with a player that isn't a 5 year vet. And seriously.. nothing against the MAN, he seems like a great person, but I'm 1000% done with the MKG experiment. He has taken up a roster spot long enough. Ill take someone that plays 3/4 of his defense and can actually put the ball in the bucket once in a while. Or, ya know, get the other team to play A LITTLE defense on them. His presence has gotten the idiot gm to overlook several FAR BETTER prospects over the years just because we don't want to admit he is a total BUST for where he was drafted. WAY TOOO MUCH EGO is wrapped up between the front office and MKG and its choking the life out of this franchise at times.
    • Na, he'll probably get picked in next years Draft.  Next years Draft is so bad, they even have Pinson getting Drafted
