What do you think?

* Drafting Peppers
* Starting Peete over Weinke in first season (established conservative, win with defense MO)
* Keeping Kasay over Shayne Graham
* Replacing Peete with Delhomme after one bad half
* Letting Trgovac go finally, replacing him with Meeks
* Letting Henning go finally (hey, that's what the fans wanted)
* Letting Crossman go finally

I think Trgovac wanted to leave, Crossman was around WAY too long, and Henning was far SUPERIOR to Davidson.

Trgo was one of the meanest people I think ever worked for the Panthers.
With that said, of the few times I met him he was really nice to me.
Had some good conversations with him.
Not sure why. Guess I just had that "it" factor.
Maybe I should play QB.



He hated kids, though, it seemed.

Actually, Fox's loyalty to his players and his tendency to encourage them no matter the situation is one of the things that has made him successful. Most of his players over the years have loved him. When you love your coach you will play a lot harder for them than for some dick who freaks out everytime you make a mistake. These are professional athletes, they don't need someone yelling at them to let them know that they shouldn't fumble the ball.

Yeah. He and Henning were opposites. Henning was a friendly old guy who had all the confidence in the world. He'd flat out tell you if he had enough talent on hand or not. Trgo seemed to be afraid of what everyone thought of him. And he carried it around with him, too. But you'd never hear him rip one of his players.

We, the fans, asked for Henning's head for so many years because of what we deemed as his anemic offense.

In comes Davidson, and many are calling for his head because of what we deem as an anemic offense.

Did anyone watch the Dolphins/Jets game last night? Jets have a pretty decent defense. Was that an anemic offense?


The problem IS Fox/Hurney.

Yes, they do need yelling. They definitely DON'T need a coach clapping to himself after a fumble. This team hasn't had heart in a lot of years, so the idea of playing hard for Fox is LOL. Maybe 5 years ago you had a case.
