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.

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.

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.

I'm not big on NFL numbers being retired. It has to be something insane to qualift in my opinion. With that said Kasay borderline deserves it. I mean really, do we need number 4 that bad? No one else past or present comes close in my opinion. I love Steve and I have no doubt he will be honored when he retires but the reality is he won't be remembered as one of the greatests of all time. He had the talent, just bad coaching and quarterback play combined with injury spells ruined a Hall of Fame career.

I think the 4th home game of the season should be John Kasay day when he retires. Also you can do creative things like name a section or a bar in the stadium after Steve. I think Cam is the only guy currently with statue potential.
