Fox is 41-3 when his team scores 26 points...

haha, I know this is a stupid thread, but it's at least somewhat interesting...

Should we have really let Fox go?

His defenses were always respectable, and look at what he did with The Golden Calf of Bristol... imagine what he could have done with Cam!

From an outside perspective, the move probably looks bad because Rivera isn't doing great.. but I think the entire NFL could see the end for Fox in Carolina, I don't think it was a "right" or "wrong" move... it was just time. Once the Panthers start winning (probably with a different coach), this issue will pass.

Fox was not what I would call one of the more creative coaches when it came to the offensive side of the ball.

Not sure how much of that was him and how much was the Panther's front office philosophy.

Denver is a much better situation for Fox. Peyton Manning handles the offense and Fox can focus on what he does best, defense.

Fox needed a change of scenery.

He was a wayyyy better coach than Rivera, just needed a different place to prove it.

He couldn't handle being hurnied anymore.

I believe a successful John Fox in Denver will help speed the demise of Marty Hurney in Carolina.

It is what I call a win / win for John Fox and Carolina Panther fans everywhere.

I'm guessing NFL teams typically win when they score 26 points.

That said, I think Fox did a pretty good job with the Panthers and frankly, so did Jake. But it was time to move on.

I don't think Fox did anything with The Golden Calf of Bristol and he wouldn't have done anything with Cam. I don't believe Fox can take any credit for any offensive success.

I will say, however, that if Fox were still here we obviously wouldn't have as "creative" an OC as Chud, and Cam's growth in running a real NFL system might be a little expedited, but his ceiling would probably be stunted.

I am not convinced Carolina can develop a QB in house. They seem to by trying to ruin the one they have now.

I wish they'd cut it out with that stupid college option. Every time I see that I'm like ok here goes a 2 yard loss.

    • We don't need Fournette to do the latter. He'd just fit it perfectly and could be a generational talent. There are other backs in this draft who could fit into a power run game built to utilize the play action and open up the intermediate and deep routes for Cam's big arm. We definitely should be adding some more short passing game into our offense, but not as a foundation of our offense. It should come from the slot position which hopefully is filled by the addition of Shepard or by a draft pick, ideally not a top 10 pick in McC or even at 40 though. If we want our offense to incorporate the short passing game as a feature then Cam needs to improve quite a bit there.
    • I think he lost weight will help get his speed back. He did look slowed last year. But he also had ankle problems and was beat up.  We need a traditional running game that can operate without Cam's own ability to run. Fournette and Stew would beat the piss out of a defense.  Receivers need to step up as does our OC.  Cam made some bad reads and held onto the ball a lot last year. But he knows how to ball.
