Why didn't we make any moves?

At 1-6 you're not a buyer, you're a seller. BUT, you only sell if the deal is right. We could still trade or cut _______ (insert name) here in the offseason.

Nothing ever happens at the NFL trade deadline besides Moss a few years ago. Nothing seriously ever happens, it's the most stale trade deadline of any sport. ESPN just needs something to hype.

Pats traded for A. Talib from the Bucs, but in general, you're right. Very little movement typically happens in season.

Glad to see that dick heading to the AFC and out of the division, now it's time for Rhonde to rhetire.

Need meds? I think some of us are fans of a team that is currently 1-6 and has the talent to be contending for the superbowl.

I think some of us are pissed off with the way the organization we love is being run and wanted to see any change at all!

The real question is, why the rest of you arn't? learned helplessness I guess........

I guess I am happy to see they were entertaining the idea.

The season is lost. Nothing drastic is gonna change, what the fug are you talking about?

Why make moves when we haven't hired a long-term GM? Nothing will change until the off season, this isn't madde.

We didn't make any moves because it wasn't advantageous for us to do so at this time. Has nothing to do with not having a GM whatsoever. Some people think they are geniuses, when in fact they're not.

Every report I saw from contenders that potentially need help at running back (Packers, Cardinals, Broncos) said that they wanted to stick with who they had, likely because the options on the market (DeAngelo and Steven Jackson) at their current salaries and having to give up something of value weren't worthwhile. So it shouldn't be a surprise that DeAngelo is still here, nor should it be a surprise that we didn't dump Steve Smith for 15 cents on the dollar.

This isn't madden? Thanks for clarifying.

All I am saying is, a lot of people around here seem pretty darn happy with the status quo and want to tell people to calm down, and sip the koolaid.

AS A PANTHER FAN, I AM PISSED OFF. I just don't appreciate people telling spirited fans that they need to "take there meds" or calm down or be happy.

I thought we were suppose to be cutting and trading mode,WTF Blow it up.Am I the only Panther fan mad as *** right now?

Because as I said before Rivera has the final say in moves and with his job on the line why in the hell would he move some of his best players for draft picks when we probably won't even be here to use those picks. How hard is that for people to understand. Jesus

    • You do realize no one wanted RyanCare/ObamaCare Lite to pass, right? If anything, the media and democrats has made themselves absolute fools lately. STILL no evidence Trump colluded with Russia whatsoever, which is quite the funny irony in this whole conspiracy. Trump inherited a mess. Hard to fix this mess when you got crybaby globalists and dems everywhere.    
    • I hate this DG analogy so much.  It only makes sense in the context of an efficient market where teams are rational, have perfect information, and scouts are always right about players.  But we have ample evidence that is not the case.  Sometimes, talented players just don't work out.  Injuries derail careers.  Teams make oddball picks.  Sometimes, you are just wrong about a player (see Ealy, Kony). I like him a lot, but DG's habit of always trading up / never trading down may ultimately be his downfall in CAR.  It results in a lack of depth across the roster and it makes your roster very vulnerable to i) injuries (see 2015 vs. 2016) and ii) missing on evals.  If we missed on Funchess (jury still out), that hurts - but missing on Funchess when you traded multiple picks to get him compounds the issue. Trading up and trading down are both valid strategies - but I'd suggest balancing the two strategies would improve your chances of long-term success.
