Did Pittsburgh die when they were telling Hines it was time to retire? Did New England crater trading away Seymour? As a fan base, we need to grow the heck up and understand what it takes to build a dynasty.
not even remotely close to the same situation. Hines had been the clear 2/3/4th receiver for a number of years before his retirement, not to mention they were primarily a running team.
Neither is true in carolina, steve is the clear #1 receiver, and there is a massive dropoff after him. Oh and we can't run the ball to save our lives.
