I'm sure he wont get it retired lol, just like I'm sure we will never have our logo at midfield.

But in my opinion he deserves his #4 to be retired. Just like it was said earlier, the thought of seeing some UDFA receiver wearing 89 is painful. Seeing some 3rd string QB wear #4 would bother me too.

In 2001 the Miami Heat retired the #23 simpily because MJ is the greatest of all time. Sometimes you do respectful things like that, but in this case unfortunately our owners will probably never get it done.

this ain't basketball.....they have plenty of numbers to go around. Football teams can't afford to retire fan favorites numbers. Jackie Miles just keeps the ones we don't want bums wearing off limits.

QB's and P/K's can wear numbers 1-19. There's only 3 QB's on the roster and only 1 punter and one kicker.

That leaves 14 other numbers available, take away 4 of those for certain receivers like Gettis/LaFell and it leaves you with like 10.

If we can't afford to permanently take away 1 of those 10 numbers to honor Kasay, that's just another decision I'll have to disagree with our front office making..

and rosters likely will expand in the next few years especially if Goodell gets his way to have more than 16 games in the regular season. Bigger rosters. More numbers to be given out.....

If the Steelers had retired the Jon Kasay type players of the years....they wouldn't have numbers to give out. Just b/c we are a young franchise doesn't mean we should be silly.

Yeah but we aren't the Steelers, we're the Panthers. And when a classy ass guy like Kasay comes around and not only starts at a position, but excels at it, he deserves some special credit. Especially since he was here for what 16 years?

We don't have anyone honored except for Sam.

esp. for your first official retired jersey as an organization.

Isn't Mills jersey officially retired? I'm pretty sure they did it at halftime of a preseason game the year he died.

extra special credit, yeah. shouldn't be a jersey, tho.

statue or ring of honor.

btw...imo kasay should have gotten the boot a few years earlier. as soon as we needed to take up an extra roster spot with a KO specialist we should have started looking instead of giving him an extension.

you're right.

still don't like the idea of retiring kasay's jersey.

I used to have stronger feelings about it......but now I just trust that Richardson knows who really means something to that organization. I'd have no problems with whoever he deems worthy. It's not something I would see him taking lightly.

Special credit is fine....I think that is displayed when Jackie Miles says numbers are off limits despite them being active/available.

You don't throw guys in the ring of honor just bc only one is in it and you feel more are needed....

No one outside of Sam at this point should of been considered for that

really mills was an inspirational player and, more importantly, human. he didn't have to spend the bulk of his career with the team. he just had to make an impact on it on and off the field while he was here.

kasay was just a good teammate and did what he was told enough for him to keep his job for 16 years or whatever. i just don't see him as being as special as others do.

Carolina doesn't retire numbers but I think Jackie Miles has some that are off the table for now. Not sure he would hand out a 17 if someone wants it for some time

Didn't Legadoodoo wear 17 last year? I can't remember for sure and I'm on my phone.
