Tanking the season

Call it whatever you want.....winning in 2010 is not the #1 goal for Carolina and is not what the moves this offseason will be about. Winning in 2009 was the main goal prior to that season. Spin or use whatever words you want....but that is pretty much a fact.

Yeah, the Panthers normally aren't very active....that is b/c they normally don't send there entire DL packing....and are just left looking for one or two fillers.

Maybe they think that the guys we have are pretty good and think they can win with them while at the same time preparing for a lockout. IDT we really downgraded at any position other than DE (and we really didn't have an option with that one).

wow kids let's break down CRA's elite argument here

1. disregard all the evidence presented (call it whatever you want)

2. state your opinion without any evidence or support

3. declare your opinion a fact

4. wait for white noise poo posters to drown out anyone who would disagree with you

5. drink deeply from a 40 oz can of Ballz and stroke your neck beard

Brilliant

Fox would havew left already of that was the case. The bucs last year were an example of rebuilding. Let me ask you this, if the panthers trade up again the draft this year would you still fell the same??

you guys are missing a huge part of the picture... JR and the rest of the organization hate publicly stating any kind of information towards contract extensions, especially when it comes to Hurney and Fox. IMO, JR wants Fox to put his younger guys on the field this year so they can get some experience, forget about trading next year's 1st round pick away and pick up what you can in this year's draft... sign fox and hurney to their extensions after the CBA deal goes down, then go full speed in next year's draft with trades and all kinds of craziness.

Not like it's the first time they've gone into a season expecting young guys to step up.

When they said "Travelle Wharton is our left tackle" pretty much nobody believed it. Everyone assumed we were going to get a veteran or draft a left tackle, but they didn't.

Wharton obviously is now at his better spot, but that's not the point. The point is that the whole "they didn't do what I think they should, so they must not care" idea is just plain silly.

And he's just going to sign on and let it derail his career without saying a word?

You seriously believe that?

left and gone where? You better believe if a decent spot opened up Fox would have bailed when they told him they weren't going to fire him.

Panthers won't trade up into the 1st round this year. It makes no sense when you have a lame duck coach who is going to be gone. They won't put the new coach in the position...and JR is gonna have the cash to let that coach come in and try to win right away.

What exactly do you think he would say if it were happening to him? I'm not convinced one way or the other. He might be just willing to take the high road and if he has any sucess this year he can scream to the rooftops of how ownership was digging a hole under him and he still did well. Like the media did that year all those guys went on IR and we still almost made the playoffs how much credit he got for that coaching job. It'd look pretty good on a resume to turn what most perceive the talent on this team to win 8 or 9 games.

John Fox may very well being on the hot seat but its far from a forgone conclusion that he'll be fired.

Foxy knows if he sticks it out this year....gets to about 7-9 w/ this roster....he will have no problem finding a job after the lockout. It would make no sense for Foxy to just leave b/c he knows Carolina isn't going to bring him back after this season. There weren't any jobs for him this offseason to go get.
