Wow. So soon? I hardly ever give a thought to Jake Delhomme anymore, and (surprisingly) even less, Julius Peppers. Six months ago, I would have never thought that I'd "forget" these much celebrated players, who were also points of much contention in the Huddle. Perhaps I am a realist who has been forced to move on because I have no other choice. Maybe I feel like that guy who is really relieved to finally have gotten rid of that old girlfriend---that was really never the right fit---in order to eagerly explore the greener pastures. Perhaps I have some latent anger because of being left for greener pastures. Maybe this is a litmus test to determine if I am that fan who supports the team, regardless of the players, or an owner who arguably---in one sense---loves the team less than I do because it is more about business in his eyes (more about the NFL Shield, than the Panthers logo). Whatever the reason, the fading memories of Jake and Pep in my mind are an affirmation that I am truly a fan of the Carolina Panthers.

you have over 1,000 posts and you have the audacity to bring up ex panthers, what in the world is wrong with you. this is complete sarcasm by the way.

i think its a shame two of the panthers all time greats are treated like curse words on this board. be prepared for this thread to be moved by THE Zod in 5. 4.3.2.1......

its still a shame i read other boards religiously and there are threads about ex players. its ok to talk and respect players who were a major part of this franchises history.

I have no problem at all talking about them. I will probably be watching more Bears and more Browns games then I ever have in my life. But, they aren't on the team anymore. I will never forget those players that were once greats on my beloved team but they are gone now so lets move on.

There are threads about ex players on this board. Just not in this section. I know perhaps this is a hard concept for you to grasp. You see this Message Board is set up into sections, each have its own "topic" designation....ohh *** it nevermind.

Not really all that surprising to me. We've got some potential talent at both positions that look promising.

I think most true Panther's fans are ready to just move on and let someone else who is hungry and capable step up and win some football games for us.

the only question that remains is:

did or did not the door bust them in the ass on the way out?

and by out I mean to another board that does not specifically deal with Panthers players

No hard feelings but let's move on shall we

Totally! That's one of the points. Time moves on. Such is the life of a pro football fan. It is about the players in so many ways, but, then again, it's not really about the players
