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

why the fug are we still always talking about Fox? The guy hasn't been our coach in 2 years and didn't do anything for us when he was our coach. Please move on. My God

Took us to a SB and an NFC championship game. He did a good job.

That said it was time for him to go. And most people here are glad to be rid of him. Nobody's dwelling on Fox.

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.

Rivera has already lost 4 games when we scored more than 26 points. That is in 1 1/3 seasons.

someone like derek anderson would be starting if fox was here.

cam wouldn't have been drafted unless it was forced on him and that wouldn't have been good for anyone.

ugh...can we please stop having these conversations?

moving on from fox was the right thing to do. his message was old. he had stopped growing (and you could argue he hasn't started back because he got an old QB to come in that he doesn't have to spend any time working with...but not our team so i don't care) and the team no longer responded to him. there was a culture of apathy that needed changing.

you can argue that rivera was the wrong guy to hire, but moving on from fox was the right thing to do.

move on.

Derek Anderson would still be our starter and Cam would still be "groomed" on the bench if we still had Fox.

Always liked him as our coach but he had a very conservative approch (remember it took 80 year old Peete to stink it up big time of the first half in the first game in 03 for Jake to see the field).

Any coach can get wins with the right personnel. Fox didn't have that here.

and jake was nearly 80 years old himself.

Fox's take no risks, play not to lose style is good for winning half of your games. Fox is Mr. .500.

Career with Panthers? .500

Last year with Donkeys? .500

This year with Donkeys so far? .500

The only time this is considered a good thing is when you can win a crappy division with a .500 record like the Donks did last year.

Or....you compare it to your old team's new coach, whose winning percentage is .333.

Hurney and Jake together should've been gone after the Playoff debacle in 08.

Once Hurney re-signed Jake after that, he should've been fired.

Keep in Mind, the Broncos were as bad as the Panthers were when Fox took over.

That comment is just ridiculous. It would be unprecedented for a QB and Coach to be fired after a playoff run.

Hurney's resigning of Jake was supposed to be a vote of confidence to help Jake move past the debacle and try to repeat it next year. Unfortunately, it didn't work out, and Jake was never able to get over Arizona. But to say, "We rode this guy to the playoffs, and then he flopped. Cut him." Is stupid.

Most coaches have very impressive records when their team scores 26. Especially HCs who were around before the recent swing into an all out air show.
