The Panthers now have the longest non-winning record streak in the league!

I live and die with this team from September to December. Sometimes (rarely) I get to during January and February as well. I buy my panthers gear, wear it to the sports bar, get into altercations (typically verbal but sometimes more) over them. It ruins my Sunday and Monday when they lose. My wife hates it and asks why I even watch because I always seem pissed off. But that rare moment when they win a game and I'm glowing, she loves it. I wish they out a better product on the field but like the other guy said, at the end of the day it is what it is. I couldn't switch teams if I wanted to. Something panthers related comes on and it gets my undivided attention. Other teams I'm meh about. These shitty times will hopefully make it that much better when (if) we get back to the Super Bowl and win one.

This is why I have to stop watching games for a while. Its become so detrimental to my personal life I can't keep doing it. I will never stop being a fan and when game time comes its going to be hard but its for the greater good.

i think he just needs to find someone else to handle personnel decisions.

i'd prefer him hand it over to rivera, tbh.

Yea his cap management is OK

Can't believe anyone is still saying this. Hurney's cap management is horrible. He wastes money retaining players we don't use, that are injury prone, have a history of under performing or are past their prime.

The actual positions of need go without being addressed because there is no money left to spend after he is finished overpaying players on ill advised contracts.

Well since 2008 we've won more games than the rams lol...

Since 2006 as well...

A Panther point of pride no doubt.

It would look good flashing on the BoA large screens during this Sunday's game. I can see it now:

"Your Carolina Panthers... We've won more games than the St Louis Rams since 2006!!!!!!!!!"

That should really fire up all the PSL owners!

JR would be lucky if the fans didn't burn down the stadium after they saw that message.

He picks what the coaches want anyway so what good would that do? If he wants to get this team better he may want to take a look at his scouting department. We obviously overlook talent in areas that we need it in. Thats for FA and the draft. As someone has said we are in a constant rebuild mode because we never get needed depth.

in addressing needs, we aren't active enough in FA/trade, we depend too much on the draft. it's a matter of philosophy on how best to get talent that is most of the issue.

we did right in going out and addressing needs on offense heading into cam's rookie year. we did ok heading into this year.

we haven't done enough on defense, though. i think getting the edwards guys was a positive step, but it didn't go far enough. we should have brought in more DL FA talent to choose from. we absolutely should have gone out and tried to get more help in the secondary. we rely too much on long shot draft picks and FAs. it's not the priority that it should be.

i don't think hurney does rivera any favor by limiting the pool of talent that he has to draw from.

We will see - right now the front office and coaching staff has the blame for killing the team. If this is still the case at the end of the year there will be some explaining to do. The palyers think the time is now and the fans seem to be ready for this "plan" to pay off. If they dont find a few blowout games to hold up as signs of hope the psl's may have a harder time renewing those tickets. It will be crazy if they they try to raise them again like after that pick six free pass in the playoffs. (i refuse to call it a game as only 1 nfl team showed up to play)
