John Fox was in the playoffs last season.
Sure the panthers have slightly improved but so has the rest of the NFC south.
this isn't the AFC west. 8-8 in this division and you're at home every season. the worst team to ever make the playoffs in the NFC south went 9-7.
the guy was done here. at odds with management, players had given up on him, fans were sick of it. "derp john fox was a good coach" is a pathetic meme. thankfully he's in a crappy division now and people with a childlike understanding of football can watch him carve up poo competition for the next few years and think he's chuck noll.
