and some in the national press had Moore leading us to the playoffs w/ Fox as Coach of the year.
i think the only person who did that was peter king or pat kirwan and we were his surpise team at that.
Alright so I don't exactly like Richardson or some of the things he does but second worst is just a cheap shot. We are at least in top half best run.
IMO, JR knew there was probably going to be a lockout, so he decided he was going to wait and see how it played out before spending any extra money. If the CBA comes out in the owners favor, JR can save a boatload of money. If the CBA comes out in the players favor, then JR did not waste any extra money on players who were going to be more expensive to sign.
Sounds like pretty sound business thinking to me. If the CBA is reworked and players salaries and years accrued are adjusted, then JR can sign his players for money that is more in tuned with their value. As opposed to players salaries which were getting out of hand. Top teir players deserve top teir money. After that a player should be paid per that players value to the team, not what the players agents precieved his value to be.
Just my thoughts, and GOOOO PANTHERS!!!!!!!
Wow, what a shock... a national sports writer thinks we suck.
Overall I agree. In all reality some of these schmucks know that "Jerry the cheapskate" could come out smelling like "Jerry the Brilliant" when this restructure settles.
But if you choose, and I mean CHOOSE, to look at the surface there is plenty to back up an abysmally poor assessment of the way the team has operated in the recent past.
As fans we must realize the role of the press and understand that the only priority they have, like politicians, is to first get a job and then secondly, keep it. No matter what pathetic drivel they publish.
well it's the truth. Apparently everyone has forgot that we sucked last season. It makes it even worse that we sucked in a year when even the best teams were just slightly above mediocre.
Just because the team was terrible, that doesn't mean that the organization was poorly run. That's the problem with the article, it just doesn't make any sense. You can't judge the quality of the organization based on a single season. The sample set is too small to draw any legitimate conclusions.

Suck it bills!
sorry, but please take off the homer goggles and realize a 2-14 isn't going to get any respect. I'm hopeful for 2011, and think they've assembled a good coaching staff and are taking the right steps, but 2010 was a fuging disaster and you could argue we should be ranked #32 since it's just a one year ranking.
I agree with your bolded statement which is why us being the 2nd worst organization makes absolutely no sense.
Why do people keep saying this is a one year ranking? If nothing else, it is a year and a half, because he makes references to coaching moves made in the offseason already.
I am not a big fan of Schein and won't defend him but if you look at the criteria you can see where he got the ratings. The head coach is worth 10 points and ours is a complete unknown so we don't rank high there. The coaching staff got the highest rating as they should. The quarterback is worth 10 points and based on Clausen we get few points (Newton is an unknown and Moore is not reported to be here). Richardson managed the team poorly last year and his strategy to hang Fox out to dry, dump veterans and do nothing in free agency hurt the franchise, angered the fans and set us back quite a bit. As for intangibles look at the stadium last year and how empty is was most games.
Frankly based on 2010 this rating is not far off. I suspect when he rates us next year we will be a lot higher. But we were clearly one of the worse franchises in 2010. I wouldn't have been surprised if we were 32.
new to the board.. hello everybody!
Another poll where panthers suck. I'm ok with that... When we do WIN, makes it all the more sweeter! Can hardly wait til our offense finds some confidence to score (With Cam, I think that is not too far off).
