Every time I listen to WFNZ or go on the Huddle, I'm bombarded with timid, weak, "woe-is-us" fans that are absolutely convinced that Luck isn't coming out or that our GM won't pick him.

Vince Lombardi once said: "The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather in a lack of will."

When I look at the Panther fan base right now, I see fans with a lack of will. You see the failures of the past half-decade and have gotten so used to losing that you accept it. It's crept inside you where you no longer have the gusto to be an NFL fan. The failures have bred a mentality that Eeyore would love:

This has been an excruciating season, yes, and it hasn't been easy being a Panther fan over the past 5 years. But people: Odds are better than not that Andrew Luck is going to declare. No college player's stock in history has been higher than his. He has nowhere to go but down next year. And there isn't a single GM in our position that wouldn't draft Andrew Luck. Not even Matt Millen. And as much as I dislike Marty Hurney, he IS at least slightly more intelligent than Millen. So please stop going around with your head on the ground Eeyore-style. This season has been trying enough without you bringing it down even more.

Lack of will? You're talking to people who are here day in and day out posting and caring even after it was clear that our front office didn't even care about this season.

Jimmy Clausen is going to try and blow Luck for us by 'finishing up strongly'....he must be stopped!

This isn't to anybody in particular. There ARE people here that post all the time just for the social aspect of it or because they just want to sulk and cry about how their lives suck. If you're not one of those people, more power to you.

+1 Gaz. I will cheer for my team (and will be taking a Jersey back home to the folks house next week so I can wear it in some bar to watch the Steelers game) until there is no team to cheer for. We have not given up on the Panthers, or can otherwise be thought of as having a lack of will.

I rooted for Carolina to win today just like I do every single week. I will not cry and pout if we lose on a #1 pick, but at the same time if we do get it I will not be blindsided by Luck not coming out. You have to be ready for everything.

eh I want Luck but we've made it to a super bowl and multiple playoff appearances with an undrafted quarterback. I'm not gonna let it affect my mood if we somehow don't draft him.

My life is fantastic homey. I have a kid on the way, a nice job that I love, a clear and bright future. I also don't mope around all day about how the Panthers have no chance of getting a superstar quarterback because they're the Panthers.

What does a fan base's will, or lack of said, have to do with the Panthers' Front Office's actions? Considering the past 2 years, I would say absolutely nothing.

I think most people on the Huddle are sick and tired of your mindless rants, but you don't see any threads about it.

It has everything to do with their attitude that makes the Huddle and places like talk radio less pleasant than they have to be. The FO's stupidity has nothing to do with Andrew Luck's decision to come out and even THEY wouldn't pass Luck up. Our only stumbling block to getting Luck here is most likely us just not getting the #1 pick somehow.
