What was the straw that broke the Fox's back?

Recommended Posts

For those of you who think the Panthers organization is walking away from John Fox. We sure are making some pretty obvious indications that we are heading in a new direction after this year.

Do you think there was an exact moment when J.R. said thats it, I am done with John Fox?

I know, I was personally at my lowest with Fox after the Browns game last year.....

That's where my Tardis went.

Fix the chameleon circuit and things will go much easier.

Eagles game. Week 1 of 09 season. 1st game following the AZ meltdown.....letting that occur (an almost indentical meltdown) to your team in back to back games was the straw that broke the camels back. What occured in both those games to end 08 and start 09 was not just poor QB play.....it has pathetic coaching. The stubborn, round peg -square hole, mindset Fox has had success with.....but it is also his biggest flaw.

He comes from the future with a warning!

I really don't think Fox will leave. IF he does, it will be his own decision, and it will probably mean that JR seized his power.

One big thing that could warrent Fox walking is his play "not to lose". mode.

When he first got here, lets be honest, we didn't have the talent to compete, so he was 150% correct in his strategy: slow the games down, run the clock down, grind it out, keep it close, and hope to win it in the end. But sometimes I feel that he hasn't evolved with the team.

Our talent level now is MUCH better than when he took over. We now have the talent to actually whip up on some teams. Yet...seems his strategy doesn't change. He still coaches like our talent is inferior. This a sure fire plan for failure unless luck is on your side and my opinion is that JR is fed up with that type strategy.
