Recommended Posts

(By Scott Fowler, sfowler@charlotteobserver.com) Carolina Panthers coach John Fox had a somewhat extraordinary news conference - at least for him - following his team's 34-3 loss to the New Orleans Saints Sunday.p/For nine years, Fox's news conferences have mostly been notable for him not saying much of anything. On Sunday, however, it seemed like a 31-point loss to drop Carolina to 1-7 had shaken something loose in Fox. He sounded angry, honest and oh-so-gone the minute this season is over and his contractual obligation is complete.

So Fox had no say in trading away future draft picks to draft the Little People, Everette Brown and Armanti Edwards? Fox had no say in taking Claussen?

Right.

fox is right, and if he had more input on the personnel decisions we would likely be above .500 right now.

Go back to the post draft presser and tell me John Fox looked at all excited about the draft results, particularly Clausen and Edwards.

Fox is now revealing what kind of man he is...pressure burst pipes!

backing up my point. fox has control of the team, but not of who is selected to compete for spots.

i think he's handling it fairly well. not perfect, but he has one win, and this is mild compared to what coaches have done in the past. mora, green,........

No football coach in history could have directed the Panthers to a victory Sunday over New Orleans once Matt Moore and Jonathan Stewart left the game with first-half injuries.

I hate to tell Scott this, but no football coach in history could have directed the Panthers to a victory Sunday with a HEALTHY Matt Moore and Jonathan Stewart.

Fox can STFU.

He saw what was happening in the offseason. He saw who we drafted. He knew what team he was going to have to work with. Richardson gave him the option to opt out of the last year of his contract and go look for work elsewhere and he chose to stay.
