Siefert and Fox left us with a losing mentality that brought us our worst losing seasons to date, but McDumbass, Chud and R&R have brought forth incompetence that breeds losing. Which is more frustrating? I agree with Proudiddy because the frustration is here and now AND because our expectations weren't at a level previously to be as crushing as they have been THIS season. The coaches need to grow up and Hurney needs to go!

Until Hurney goes i feel like this is what to expect...he just doesn't know how to build a team IMO

Good points, OP. While I will always remember the 1-15 season as the absolute lowest point for me as a Panthers fan, this year certainly leaves a bad taste in the mouth...mainly because of expectations. The 1-15 year we kind of knew we were going to be bad, but if memory serves correctly we won our first game...against Minnesota (who was a good team that year I think). So we kind of got a jolt of positivity that quickly deflated as we went on to lose our next 15 games.

BTW...I'm starting to side with the people that think we need a major change in upper management. I mean you need look no further than New Orleans to realize how good or bad a team can be just from coaching.


Thanks Stan.

In terms of an individual season, it (2001) certainly was the worst. But, we were so close in so many of those games and lost them right at the end... And that team truly was young and didn't know how to close out games. It was so hard seeing all of the different ways we found to lose that season - unbelievable, in fact.

But, this season the expectations for most were moderate to high. We have a franchise QB, we have established talent on both sides of the ball, much more than we did in 2001 or 2010, and by all accounts we've heard up to this point, the players believed in Rivera. There was already a sense of complacency and "ho hum" about Seifert brewing at that point. He just felt disconnected. And up until recently, the fans still had a reason to believe in not only that the players would be better and the team improved, but that Rivera still had promising potential as a coach.

All of that combined with the cumulative effect of recent history/losing tradition, and this is crushing.

Do you have season tickets and go to any of the games? the reason I ask is because part of our problem is the home team fans that attend the games.
To all the huddle fans that post remarks here and don't attend the home games and live close enough to go to the games,you are part of the problem and I think your opinion doesn't count.

I have tickets for DEN, ATL and OAK in hand. I wish I had waited, they'll likely be dirt cheap on Ebay and Stubhub soon. :(

Fans can't really revolt and stay away due to investing megabucks into PSL's. If those fans defect en masse, then Jerry might wake up, but you will still have a core in the club seats that will come to games as social events and will line his pockets. Expect loads of Dallas fans, moreso than usual, in two weeks, loads of Peyton hillbillies from Ten-i-see after that, then massive amounts of Fowlclown fans up I-85 after that.

I suggest you sell your DEN,ATL and OAK tickets for $5.00 each so we can have more DEN,ATL and OAK fans attend those games in you place.The Panthers have very few loyal fans and I think you are a good example.

LOL, The good old, "if you don't take this losing and like it then you're not a fan!" fallacy.

Awesome fanbase indeed.

Is this where everyone tries to show they know what the f*ck they're talking about concerning about how we should feel about being a fan?

fans are as soft as the franchise

The irony of a fellow fan complaining about you making complaints about the team if you don't have tickets, but when you go to the games you aren't allowed to stand, scream, cheer, or complain without the possibility of being escorted out due to said fellow fans.
