Is there anyone that still cares about this season?

118 posts in this topic

Just trying to get a handle on who is NOT apathetic at this point. Is there anyone left?

Nobody on the team cares, the owner doesn't care, the coaching staff doesn't care, no sense in caring about young players developing because the new coach will ship half of them out anyway and will have a new offense and defense for them to learn....what's the point of caring about the rest of the season?

I fell asleep during today's game for the first time since the Panthers had their asses handed to them late in 1998 by the Jets. The Panthers were bad, they were boring, and I saw no reason to care about what happened once Moore took the snap. Was I alone?

I still care. Always will.

I rooted to the end of the 2001 season. I'll do the same with this one even if it's that bad.

Accentuate the positives, as few as there will probably be this season. I will continue to look for them. None today, but I'm sure Fox will say there was...

Serious question then Mr. Scot: WHY? If the people that get paid to care don't care, if even the owner doesn't care, then why would someone that doesn't get paid a dime care about how a team performs where half the players will be jettisoned in the offseason? Why should we care? Because of that Panthers logo?

Don't know if I really care but I've watched every game so far, and will probably watch the rest of them. To be honest I expected the Panthers to be bad this year. I saw what was going on in the offseason (letting Peppers go, not signing a good 2nd receiver, etc.) with the general youth movement and knew this would be a tough year. I think I predicted about 3 or 4 wins. We may not even get that. It's years like this that make the good years that much better.

I'd rather be us than the Cowboys though. With all the hype they had in the preseason their fans must be going apeshit.

Hell yeah I still care. My philosophy always has been and always will be...don't give up until you're mathematically eliminated.

Besides, there's always a chance that Jeff Davidson will grow a brain and learn to call the offense. And don't tell me that Fox is calling these plays, because he's not. There is not a chance in hell that Fox would call a flea flicker on the first play of the game.

I don't care if we lose anymore. I actually kind of want us to lose outright. at least that way we have a chance at getting andrew luck. that'd be sweeeeeeeeeeet.

Okay, so once we pick up loss #9 in a few weeks and we clinch a losing record, do you stop caring at that point?

    • I was very intrigued by him early on. The tape (highlights) look good, and at that size still seemed to have pull away speed. Then I looked into him more, and he has some very bad fumbling issues. If I am remembering right it is like once in every 34 carries on average.  Near the bottom in the entire RB draft class.
    • Honestly I claim no expertise regarding the draft and haven't gone to the trouble of creating a board or ranking players. But I think that guys in the top 50 are often from bigger schools and get more hype than other guys.  Plus there may be guys taken at some positions much sooner or later than previous years. In the past 2 drafts, no tight ends were drafted in the first round. And the last time 4 TEs were picked in the top 3 rounds was a decade ago. This year we could see 2 tight ends taken in the first round alone and another 2 or 3 in the second round.  On the other hand there is often a run of OTs taken in the first and this might be the first draft in a while where no OTs are taken in the top 20. We could get one of the top 10 tackles at 98 or 115 where other years they would be chosen much higher. Is that because they all suck or is it that there are more attractive guys at other positions?  You make a good point about trading up. Is it better to have 2 picks at 40 and 64 instead of one at 24. I think it depends on how we see our current projected starters.  If we think we have several holes to fill and these guys are going to be impact players than don't trade up. If you think that the guy at 64 would be a rotational guy but who we want at 24 is going to be a starter and really impact the team, you trade up. It depends on what we think we need and how the draft pans out.
