Truthfully speaking, this forum is not an accurate potrayal of our fanbase. Carolinahuddle is a Panthers fan board first and foremost. A lot of people who like the Panthers dont necessarily like or appreciate the Bobs. And people here think the Panthers marketing strategies and ownership are "successful" and the end all be all. I will say their conditional support typifies Panther fans, who's gameday experience and atmosphere has no soul to it. We have good discussion and this is one of the best parts of the board but in no way do a lot of these dudes rep TRUE Bobs fans.
Don't let the 4-5 turncoats who keep pieing this thread make you think we're all like this
All like what? This?
Nothing I discuss here isnt something that hasnt been discussed ad nauseum in sports bars and water coolers around town. And you might not notice this, but Jerry Richardson's credibility isnt real high right now in the city of Charlotte. He's known as an owner who puts $$$ before anything. Including his own sons. The thing thats destabilized the Huddle more than anything is losing. Unfortunately fans like yourself dont mind losing. You welcome it. I bother you more than losing does. Thats what hurts us. Thats what makes us a soft fanbase.
Why not 2010 Panthers? Why not Clausen or the other QBs that are already here? Still waiting for a stork to fly over and drop a QB out of the sky and save us all huh? This franchise and its fans have been down that road before, so pardon me if some of us arent as easily sold as others. The Panthers paint themselves as dysfunctional when they're asked to identify and groom QB talent to help us as a football team.
1-12. PhillyB defender of bad football. Stick with what dont work Panther fans. Run Carolina run!
It shouldnt come in play at all. When things get tougher, we need to cling tighter to our conservatism. We shouldnt let a vocal minority make us budge from what we are or what we're about. So the louder they scream, the tighter we should hold on to 1930.
White QBs are superior to black QBs in every facet. They're smarter and more cerebral. They're safer and dont get caught up in scandal. If Jerry Richardson and the Panthers are serious about winning a Super Bowl, then every QB on our roster should be white. Every QB we draft or see potential in should be white. Thats the only way.
He wouldnt. I totally credit our 1-12 record to how well our QBs have played. Their smart decision making, their ability to mesh with their teammates, everything they bring to the table places us where we are. I dont think a black QB could take us that far.
I agree, we should stick with what we've been doing. Continue to bring in the same players with the same exact skillsets and pray the outcome will be different. Thats what the best franchises do.
Carolina Panthers, the franchise that passed on Michael Vick for Tommy Jone Jake, Matt Moore, and Jimmy "Pickles" Clausen. Coming to a Trivial Pursuit card near you.
At the time it was the perfect gamble to a team like ours. We had no quarterback. Still dont. But this is the Carolina Panthers. A few inches better than the Browns, but walk around like we're the Steelers or Patriots. We're too proud and feel like we're too good for a black QB. Being 1-12 and all. Our first preference is always gonna be a white guy, always has, and always will be under current circumstances. Dudes feelings get hurt when you say that, but when we step in the war room, all that goes out the window. The sad thing is, no one can tell us how its benefited us or how its made us better as a football team. Just because Jerry Richardson and some of our fans want to be "classy losers" doesnt mean we all want to be. Some of us actually do care about winning at all costs and dont feel we're too good to consider a black QB the best option.
All of that is just 3 pages into this thread:http://www.carolinah...kt/page__st__40
So, if we follow your rules in this thread KT, I don't think you should post about the Panthers anymore. You aren't a fan. You didn't like or agree with the moves JR was making, so when he made a good one you shouldn't act like you had been there the whole time giving him your unwavering support. JR doesn't need you. JR doesn't owe you anything. Uncle JR brought us a team and put up money to keep our core players, yet you still found yourself groveling at his feet to appease your desires because it wasn't good enough. We don't need fairweather fans, we know who the true fans are and they're the ones that will keep us afloat.
So if you don't like each and every thing about our team you are a traitor. Oh yeah, and if you live outside of a .065 mile radius from Charlotte, you aren't welcome either, although I might change that one later if it fits my argument!
Amirite? Is that how to do it?
