Told you guys this team wasn't built to win in today's league. While pass rush has improved, the d line still can't fill the gaps against the run and the secondary is absolutely awful. Norman is only playing as well as a 5th round rookie possibly can, which is not nearly good enough, and really the only player we have in the back four that any competent team would be willing to start is Gamble. Godfrey is nowhere near worth the money he's earning, and Nakamura is god awful. Just god awful. Unbelievable with the need for better safeties how we whiffed on the chance to pick up Landry for only 4 million. The running game is bloated with too much talent and not enough opportunity for each to contribute and earn their pay. On a good rushing day our white elephant running backs barely eclipse double digits in rushing attempts. Meanwhile Michael Turner proves just like Andre Brown did ten days ago that less is more with more all purpose yards than "DOUBLETRUBBBLLEEZZ" or "TRIPLETHREATSZZ" or whatever the fug you running game fetishists are calling our backfield at this point.


4th season in a row starting 1-3 or worse. Not really a characteristic of a consistent winner. The losing spell continues until Hurney has an epiphany that causes him to re-evaluate his prioritization of where to invest in talent on this team, or is replaced with someone who already possesses that wisdom.

This has to be Hurney's last year. If not then we know Gantt was right that he has the job for life. And in that case, we just have to wait until new ownership arrives. I have a strong feeling we'll have to do the latter.

All across the league mid-late round draft picks that don't cost that much are putting up more numbers than our billion dollar backfield.

Our QB is the leading rusher again.

So glad we didn't use that money on a S or CB.

Me and Lineal were discussing in a thread earlier, which may be its own thread... But, you have to start wondering if JR is pulling strings on gameday at this point. Because no matter the coach, we seem to always tend to play it safe and the philosophy never changes that much between them.

His dedication to Hurney, his love of the Shield at the expense of the game, fans, etc... It's a viable question.

Just did a check and you'll be surprised to hear this but the Panthers are the only team to start the first quarter of the season 1-3 or worse for the last four years in the entire league. The Rams don't even have that distinction. Cleveland either.

If 1000 people can forward this as an email to Jerry Richardson and Marty Hurney, I wonder what they'd be thinking about how well whatever vision they have in their head of what the Panthers are supposed to be built to be is working...

JR and Hurneybadger don't care. They do what they want.

You're right, but we always find ways to win 3-4 games in the last month of the regular season and keep hope alive for next year (except 2010)

So nobody gets fired/cut after the season ends because of that magical winning streak
