John Fox Last Weekend as Coach

Recommended Posts

Clawsome2    0

There have been whispers that this may be the last game coached by John Fox if the Panthers head to the bye with an 0-5 record. If this is really the last time we are going to see foxy and the last time we can post anything about FIREJOHNFOX or make some lame avatar, I just want to say thanks for the memories old man.

If it turns out that THIS is the weekend where he gets fired, I hope he goes out in style by making the last play of the game a RUN UP THE MIDDLE or a THIRD AND DRAW. That would be the way to go out.

Sorry its early, tired of reading stupid crap about burning jerseys and who sits with me to drink and watch the games...nobody cares.

Frankly it makes no sense unless JR wants to give one of his coords a trial run as HC.

IT makes ZERO sense to bring someone in now with the lockout looming.

JR didn't give Fox a team he was going to win with this year. JR knew it would be a rough year heading in and was fine w/ Fox playing out his last year as the HC. Fox will ride this season out until the end and the Panthers will part ways. That was pretty much set in stone before the season begun.

I seriously doubt these whispers are true. That being said, while Fox certainly shares in the blame for the poor performance, its whomever made the personnel decisions over the last two off seasons that should be fired. Can't think of any coaches that could win with our rookie wide receivers and a rookie QB.

Absolutely no chance this happens. It's the last year in his contract, and the lockout is approaching. Were you awake when you heard these whispers?

It makes sense to me if the new coach is cheap/on hand already. Panthers are teetering on half empty stadiums the rest of the year. A blowout loss to Chicago could tip that scale irreversibly with Fox still here.

Richardson wrote off this season in terms of wins/losses, but that doesn't mean he wants to lose tons of money. He probably figured Fox could keep this team competitive.

only reason I think Fox will finish the season out is I bet our next coach is employed with another team as a coordinator. I think JR gives a young guy his first shot like he did with Fox. I think Seifert was the first and last when it comes to that type of hire.

I've thought the same thing. And I don't think Richardson wants to go asking a team if he could interview one of their coordinators mid-season. One, if would leak to the press, and 2. Richardson has a lot of respect for the other NFL owners, and that move is sorta shady.

Yeah, but he can hand the reins to someone on hand (Meeks) who has a clean slate with the fans, THEN hire someone on the other side of the lockout. His short term concern is empty seats the rest of the year. That's 25,000 times whatever seats cost. That's some casheesh.
