Is your opinion of Mr. Richardson starting to change?

93 posts in this topic

Exactly. Richardson has never been the type to let this team fail, nor has he been "greedy" in the past.

If you can't see that the CBA is affecting the front office's decision making, you're blind. No Panther fan wants to acknowledge that we might be sacrificing now so as to be a better team in the future, but that's the reality of the situation. And if you look at most successful teams in the league, they are built through the draft.

I wonder if we find success in the next year or two or three if you guys will still wish Richardson dead.

We won't know a thing, until it happens

That NFL logo in the middle of the field has stuck in my craw for 15 years, now. And I've been opendly critical of the Richardson regime since 1996.

However, since the kids are gone, it now appears that JR is cleaning up their mess.

I never liked the idea that you bring in a bunch of hired guns to win a championship like we did in 1996. You run the risk of having in a bunch of high-paid guys who used to be good. That idea obviously was either Mark's or John's, and now that they are gone, we can discard it for the poor idea that it was. And that's what JR is doing now.

As the season progresses, I think we'll start seeing better football, and as someone said earlier, we'll be in position to exploit the new CBA rules since we won't have a lot of dead money on the field.

Profound. Is that a Foxism?

I don't like his way of running things this season, but I will give his plan a chance before I pass judgement.

He has been too willing to write the check to try and improve this team for me to ignore and simply say he is "al davis" level.

True but it just isnt this year. Last year we didnt pick up much in free Agency. The last time we made a splash was Kemo/Lucas.

Or maybe he's just a 23 year old dick head?

You need to have a mix. Build through the draft but also fill in weaknesses through free agency. Just one or 2 veterans that we have a glaring need and cant be fixed by the draft quickly i.e WR.

That was about money. We were an expansion team needing to sell PSLs to build a stadium. We had to win quick and we did. The Idea was Bill Polian's who has done a pretty good job since leaving here building the Colts.

I think draft and coaching decisions are being made above Hurney and Fox. Drafting Edwards was to get the APP fans in here. Jumping the gun on starting Clausen was another attempt to keep selling $7.00 beers. This year is all about cutting expenses and maximizing profits. Morrison is already talking about another stadium in Charlotte so they can go to the PSL well again.

Not burn. You're saying you wish someone was dead simply because you disagree with what they are doing. That makes you dick head.
