Zod is getting an invoice in the mail. Knowing him though, I think this one will be going to a collection agency.
Seriously though.....I think the timing of this announcement has more to do with allowing Fox and the other coaches to be out there in the market quicker than with a big splash move the Panthers will make.
Just my opinion though....I am usually wrong on such matters.
There is a lot of truth in this post IMHO. JR is just giving the coaching staff early notice to start looking for a job now rather than being a douchebag and wasting their time w/ false hopes of staying.
