you call yourselves fans?

And the panthers call themselves an NFL franchise? Until they stop embarrassing themselves every week perhaps they should be thankful they have any fans left in the first place.

Arguably, the only real embarrassment has been the Giants game. We had an opportunity to win in all the others, but fail short. That's really not uncommon with a team and coaching staff as young as the Panthers. We are going through growing pains, it's as simple as that.

The fans are just, well being fans. There's no guideline on how to be one and to parallel people's attitudes as fans to how a team performs is nonsense. You're on a message board not a "true fan" town hall meeting...people need to get over this stupid fan v. fan crap blabbering about how they know how to be a true fan or whatever....and the idea that the attitude of what we call a fan base is causing the team to underperform is bs bottom line. Project, predict, theorize, discuss...but stop bitching at your own fanbase

There were lots of callers bitching about our fans yesterday implying that the mediocre fan base is rubbing off on the players. I don't buy it. Until we get some history behind us mediocre franchise means mediocre fans.

That isn't true in a place like Cleveland where the NFL has 4 generations of fans

We do have way too many opposing fans in our house on a weekly basis. I would never sell my tix to the enemy.

i think the "meh"ness of the fans and players feed on each other.

both parties are the problem. we don't push much because they haven't delivered. they haven't delivered much because we aren't pushing enough. it's cyclical.

I actually think our fanbase's willingness to criticize the team as a sign of maturity.

How many seasons have giants fans had the torches and pitchforks outside of tom coughlin's house? Almost all of them.

I remember the days when people were mostly just happy to have a team around here. Sign chuck smith? Good idea! Sean Gilbert? Seems sketchy but I trust this team! Biakabutuka is still with this team? I'm sure he'll stop getting less than three yards per carry and won't get hurt this time.

Glad those days are over.

I dont believe we need to clean house, Rivera and Chud do have me severly frustrated though. We need to cut out all the gimmicky cute finese poo and go back to pro sytle smash mouth keep pounding football. The coach problems are common sense....that is the most dissapointing thing.

This season is over, but the team can at least make is respectable and continue to grow

#1 thing this team needs to learn is how to close a game properly.

We deserve better? no they deserve better.....better fans.........my bro in law was right and thats said, he said we have the most fairweather fans in the NFL and look outside its raining so you guys should cry about it.

No, we deserve better. We pay their salaries- not the other way around. You define a fan as someone having blind loyalty. Some of us define a fan as a critical supporter who has a right to be angry/vocal when their team is not up to snuff- and hasn't been for a LONG time. You fans calling everyone crybabies are the crybabies. You can't handle ANY (justified) criticism of such an obviously "perfect" team. LOL!

O doesnt execute, THE SAME PLAYS: "fire CHUD, we suck, trade Cam"

We shouldn't be running all of THE SAME PLAYS. Chud has proven an inability to adapt to defenses that have adapted to him!

Every fanbase does the same thing. Browse their forums after a loss.

I'm tired of having circle jerks on the huddle about better times and the future.

You play football to win, not to suck ass every other week.

I've been loyal and will continue to be loyal to the team, this staff on the other hand..

This happens to every fan base in all sports. Not just us.

Like they said above, win and it all goes away.

Just don't go as far as the Bobcats. Once it get that far, no one cares anymore. Should be glad there's still people like us whining.

Fans spend 1000s of dollars per year to support the Panthers. We are owed more than what JR is serving up. We have been owed more for sometime. The problems are simple and in this order.

1) JR- runs the football team like a fast food restaurant franchise....

2) Hurney- band aid after band aid while over paying a few select starters...leaving the team with enormous holes.

3) Rivera- Not a capable coach. Defense is a complete mess on passing plays and suffers from blown coverages almost every single play. Once the offensive player has the ball, the Panthers defense can NOT tackle. Worst tackling team in the league. The special teams is horrible and costs the Panthers points week in and week out. We are better off simply fair catching the ball every play. Our offense has no identity and extremely talented players are not being utilized properly. Our OL is spotty and our WRs are suspect, with the exception of Smitty. Rivera has lost 8 second half leads. That is all coaching. His clock management is pure poo. He is a moron, not a coach.

Real fans can look at their team and make direct statement which address why their team sucks and the Panthers do suck. They have the worst owner/management/coach in the league. Their record speaks for itself.
