Zod

I'm officially in the "Look to the future" mode....

Sophomore slump, people. Chill out. The future is still bright. Rivera, Chud, and Cam can get it going on (and, maybe Derm...I don't know). I would have never thought that even a level-headed Zod would go the way of the Huddle fringe. Let's get some more talent in here next year at key positions and hope that Gettis and Hogan can make a difference. We will be alright. Barring a Cowher (who isn't coming to Carolina) or a Gruden, I really don't see upsetting the apple cart. Yes, the apple cart. We just need to change a tire or two. We will be the pride of the market once everything comes together. You'll see.

It's not Cam that's the problem. Sophomore slump or not, this team has larger issues than QB play. In fact, Sunday aside, that's one of the bright spots looking ahead.

The larger issue is that Rivera, Chud, and McDermott don't seem to be the answer. Chud would be a solid O.C. with a head coach that actually managed his gameplan a bit and didn't give him so much rope to hang himself with. McDermott is a lost cause.

Rivera more and more reminds me of Tony Sparano in Miami. Tough talking coach, but still unable to instill discipline and motivate his players.

Hurney sure as poo isn't the problem. Cam isn't either.

I'm Still rooting for Rivera. I still Love the Panthers even if the owner scams me. I'll be the loyal and patient fan.. and when the Panthers do eventually turn things around whether it late this year or in 5 years, or 10, It will be great.

Plus i do believe its a process. Our defense is significantly better, just gotta get back to real football on Offense.. not the tricky over complicated crap chud has us running... miss the I formation

Wow if Zod is saying this season is shot than it really must be over...

It really doesn't look like Rivera is the guy that will get us a Lombardi trophy. I hope they do something fast because this team DOES have talent.

We are one more top 10 pick away from the promise land...

Wasnt it a short 5 weeks ago that the Zod character was predicting us to go 12- 4 ?

Looking at the schedule as of today I don't see them finishing above 5-11 if they keep this up.

Hurney and Rivera should be gone if that is the case, but I'm not sure they will.

I love the defensive rookies right now. Norman is beaten sometimes but I don't think QBs are going to be throwing at him much longer. Once he learns how to defend receivers as well as the sneaky throws NFL QBs make he'll be fine. I'm really excited for Frank Alexander and Charles Johnson on the edge.

I really hope I can say that Hurney's last draft was a very good one. If they can add a talented FS and a DT this defense could be top 15 by next year.

You guys need to shut up. We're inches away from being 3-2. I still have faith in this season.

    • Depends on what the play calling looks like this year. I try to avoid judging individuals on the success of a group, unless it's the HC. If Shula's play calling looks like hot garbage like it has so far and Cam & co. are just making up for it like in 2015, then yes I'll continue to hate him. If the playbook (and situational playcalling) is indeed better then I'll be glad and start warming up to Shula. 
    • Nice work on the weight loss!...thought you were gone???
    • I still think he's most valuable in a pass rushing specialist role and hopefully with the addition of Peppers and Hall we can largely keep him in that role. When he's fresh he's really hard for an OT to stay in front of. I expect him to play a bigger role thos season, but he played 434 snaps last year. Ideally, I don't want that number much over 500. For reference, CJ played 543 snaps and Ealy 623. Ajudted for snap count, Addison was by far our most productive DE.
