Sort of like you leaving a job an working a 2 week notice .

Are you really going to give your all ?

Your mind is on your future,not the future of your soon to be former boss.

Fox knows he's out ,his coaches are not sure where they stand either

agreed with all of the OP. the offseason moves make sense considering the climate that the league was likely going to be entering plus knowing that a new coaching staff was going to be coming within a couple years and a house cleaning would be taking place at some point. it made sense to dump them in a year that there would be no penalties. not taking on any big contracts also makes sense when you don't know what the new regime is going to want to do.

the big problem is what you pointed out. we have a coaching staff with really no vested interest in making the most of this team. why spend time building or developing a group of guys that you probably won't be seeing after this year? if you know the end is coming its easy to check out early. its easy to not want to be bothered with a bunch of rookies.

it would have made more sense to let the new coach be part of the house cleaning and picking of the new players that you were going to build your team around. watch them in action and then see who is worth keeping and where money needs to be spent when FA opens back up.

things could still work out after this season and it may all work out for the best but this year is a mess and it didn't necessarily need to be so.

one question i have, though. would losing this year with a young coach in the process of rebuilding the team have been easier to take than a team sucking with a lame duck coach?

Can't speak for everyone, but I think most fans would say yes to that.

although i can't really think of a new coach hired this year that i'd want the panthers to have.

I mean I don't want Pete Carroll at all and Chan Gailey can go to hell.

If it means we get Luck and Harbaugh, then I'll say the end justified the means.

Remember when I started the original "Next Head Coach" thread?

Wasn't convinced for certain then that it would happen, but I believed it should.

I've said more than once, including this past offseason, that I believed the combo of Fox and the Panthers had gone as far as it could and a fresh start was the best thing for both.

Yes I remember that, harsh condemnation for sure. Made me shiver.

This is an ongoing discussion, in several threads, so I thought I'd make a bit of an effort to consolidate it here.

Here's a look at the possible options for next year, if John Fox is fired.

(and keep in mind that even with the 0-3 start, this is not a given)

the last "job" i had, when i knew my contract was running out and it was time to decide if i wanted to continue or not, i decided to leave. even though i still had a few months left on my contract and promised to stay on until someone else could be found to take my place, in my head i had already checked out. it was hard not to. i was counting the days until i could taste freedom once again. every day that some tough situation came up, my mind went immediately to "6 more weeks" or whatever.

it didn't have anything to do with being professional, it had everything to do with being human. when you face struggles in a situation that you know is temporary, it's easy to quit trying to make the best of the situation you are in and just ride it out.
