It's funny how many people are down on the Panthers because of their dismal play. If you would have paid close attention to the team last year, you would have known that we were not a very good team then. We were the product of no training camp, new coach, new coordinators and a new franchise QB. No one knew who we were or what to expect. This year teams have had a chance to look at plenty of film, thus, in the words of former Cardinals coach Dennis Green; we are exactly who they thought we were, and that's not a very good football team. So, in my opinion, we are about where we should be. Year 2 of a 4 year project...Go Panthers!!!!

If you call a team with no cap room, and the kind of players we have on the team a project you're crazy. We have our vets and we have our players in place, a franchise QB, this is no project anymore just a change in coaching and it sucks. Other teams must have two year projects because very little stay with the same coaches beyond that. JR will let him play it out though, because it makes more buisness sense.

Even the tarheels will suck this year in BBall. All my teams suck this year!

If you're talking about relative to last season, sure. The cycle begins again, so of course we're not going to be a national title contender. But I don't think we'll have a repeat of 2009-2010... I see 25 wins and a Sweet 16 appearance.

Gotta love PSLs. No way for fans to show disapproval. If Marty Hurney and Rivera are still here next year I will have no investment in this team because it will be the same old joke told way too many times. Neither at this point have proven any reason they should be around next year.

I think JR will pull the trigger on this regime unless by some miracle we show some drastic improvement.This is clearly a bad hire at coach and should be obvious to him.I liked it when we hired him but teams just cant regress like the Panthers have.I would hope that Hurney is the first one to go.

As long as Hurney and Rivera (along with his staff) remain, I have zero optimism for significant long term improvement. And until Richardson dies, I have zero optimism we will replace them with competent people if we even can them in the first place. We might get the occasional hot streak and win a few games with them, but we will never be legitimate contenders.
