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 still care enough to watch the games and always will. I admit that my heart doesn't pound in excitement/nervousness during the games this season, even if the game is close.

Let's say you're John Fox. You don't speak to the owner. You're handed a team that you have no say in creating that completely sucks. You know you're moving your family to another city in a few months no matter what happens.

Why would you be concerned about coaching well? John Fox could prepare his ass off and coach like no one has coached before and this team isn't making the playoffs. So what's the point?

Because I'm a fan, and it's what fans do.

(that, plus the notion that the owner and the players don't care is just silly)

The players do care (but will care less as the season goes on if we continue with just 1 win, Brentson Buckner has talked about this), but it's silly to believe Richardson DOES care. He has shown not one iota of caring towards this season. I can't think of one thing he has done that points to caring.

And blind fandom sounds all hardcore, but honestly, does it make any sense to care? Your argument for caring is basically: Because I do. Well, alrighty then. Jerry Richardson counts his billions of dollars off sheep and suckers like you. The team and ownership literally don't have to lift a finger towards winning this season and they're still not going to lose someone like you.

You know those NFL Network team videos they do every year, like "2003: The Cardiac Cats," and "2009: A Tail of Two Seasons?"

2010 Carolina Panthers: Meh.
