When you're recovering from the retirement home that used to be One Buc Place, you're going to take some lumps. Tampa flushed out all the bullcrap remaining from the Gruden/Allen era and left only the parts that worked. The only thing remaining that is questionable is Sabby Piscatelli, and he's not even a starter and is back on special teams.

The deal is with your franchise, is you NEED to rebuild around that running game. You need a front office sweep. Name one thing Carolina has ever done dominately enough to win a Super Bowl? Nothing. John Fox has been blowing the whistle on the mediocrity train there for far too long. Tampa did the exact same thing as Carolina since winning the Super Bowl. But the difference is, we discovered it and took care of it and are starting brand new but in a similar mold.

This Sunday shouldn't matter whatsoever to you. Because the sad fact that is burning in the back of your mind is you won't do anything this year. Or next year. Or the year after that. Because you'll still be sitting at a traffic light with Fox driving the car while other teams are driving right past you.

The prime years of DeAngelo and Stewart (the only two players you have to look forward to) are going to be wasted while you're sitting there doing nothing.

With a new regime comes new change. Carolina's regime doesn't work at all. But they're still there, while precious minutes on a short shelf life position drip away like wax on a candle.

The way you should see it, is that Tampa is AT LEAST two years ahead of you. You'll be scratching your head at who is coming in next to lead your little pity party in Carolina next year. Then they'll purge the roster AGAIN after you lost a lot of veteran experience this very year.

All the while you're doing that we'll be adding the handful of pieces we need to make this team a complete foundation, while your guys are dropping magnets off the white board the 2010 Panthers depth chart was on.

Matt Moore is the future huh? What about Clausen? No? Maybe? Well while you're finding that out in 2011, our guy will be in his third year. With our bright shiny receivers you wish you had and a brand new runningback acquired from the April Event, extra O-Line reinforcement, and pass rush.

Whatever era you had is done. Enjoy the scrap heap for a while. Have fun sitting in pit row, while everyone else is on the track.

Thanks Soup, for sharing an example of what a real post looks like. If more would come to our board, they too could learn from brilliant posters like you.

I posted this on our board too, but two guys fighting over scores kinda buried it. Whether TarPanther read it or not, I'll never know. It was directed at him, and he never had a comeback.

That's not saying much. There are barely functional retards writing for the Observer as it is.

What do you call every year since 2003?

You're fooling yourself.

You realize you're just as guilty as Tampa is of mediocrity? Why do you think the NFC South historically has had such a change of power? Mediocrity by all the teams involved. No one stood out.

Atlanta figured this out. New Orleans figured this out. Tampa has figured it out. What's Carolina's excuse?

"Yeah, let's go ahead and stick with the coach that's causing us to spin our wheels. We got really close to doing something one of those years."

No.

You got knocked out by a 9-7 Arizona team in 2009. That's it. Do you really think you had a shot against Pittsburgh that year? Not a chance in hell. The NFC was notoriously weak that year, but if that's what you want to put your hat on go ahead. I'm sure Jake Delhomme was going to lead you to the promised land! Darn i missed that one...

Deny, Deny, Deny... that's the first sign you got a problem...

See, this is what I'm talking about. I present a big argument that requires ACTUAL THOUGHT and all i get are "well we're still winning games" and little pithy comments about The Observer.

Ball up, and actually make yourselves look intelligent for a change.

Or is there going to be nothing but, "I am rubber, you are glue" or "I know you are but what am I", replies to this?

Weak. You just failed at being a fan.

Nope we got rid of our main problem in the offseason (Jake). We will be winning most of our games for the next 5 years.

2005 was a pretty good run for us, since we went to the NFC Championship game. If memory serves me right, you guys lost in the wildcard round against the skins

Wow! These fools have the bucs rebuilt and goin to the super bowl after barely beating the browns in the first game of the season. Delusional, ridiculous and dumb. Stick to the gay hillbilly jokes clowns.

Until after u go to the Superbowl and at least win a playoff game you have no room to talk. Ya we have John Fox and we had Jake Delhomme yet we still won playoff games after the 2003 season. What have u done lately? Going 48-64 in that span of time isn't really something to gloat about.

And replaced him with a guy that went 14 of 33 and threw 3 picks on his route to a concussion?

I guess Jake was licking windows his entire career in Carolina, he must've been terrible.

I still wouldn't label Freeman as a franchise QB yet. You could very well be drafting another QB in a couple of years because he was a bust.
