No doubt about it, we should now tank for a good draft pick.

id rather tank then win meaningless games at this point. NFC is to strong to get a wild card at 9-7

And have the defense sucking royal ass without Keuchly??

GTF out!!!!

I love Kuechly, but right now this team needs an NFL caliber LT. Jordan Gross isn't that anymore. Amini's weaknesses are enlarged by the fact that Gross isn't close to the player he once was, and Hangman blows as a center now. Hopefully Joeckel can be 75% of the player Kalil is, because he's looking like a slam dunk for our first pick....

It doesn't matter what we "try" to do, we're going to get our asses handed to us anyway with this clueless coaching staff.

that's what this team needs...another high draft pick player!!

Can't really argue with the last 2 years' 1st rounders... Not saying we should tank... Just thought that should be pointed out

I don't think anybody said it was the solution to all our problems. With that said, if we ended up with the first or second overall pick and could sell high to a team in need of a QB we would be set up a lot better for the long term then if we had a pick in the middle to bottom of the top 15.....

Why?it's true why win we are only hurting our draft pick,it's not like we are playing for a playoff spot.

"Why" is simple, and obvious: a lack of talent isn't necessarily the problem with this team. Obstinate, idiotic coaching is the problem with this team. A lack of desire to grow beyond mediocrity and complacency is the problem with this team. Sacrificing a season for a top five draft pick that may not even pan out is a weak, defeatist attitude and shouldn't be tolerated by anyone who has even the slightest desire to see this franchise ever see more than less than a handful of winning seasons.

This should've been the game to see what Gettis can or can't do. We've needed a deep threat all season: hell, we needed a deep threat last season. Murphy is for all intents and purposes irrelevant, Lafell is at best a possession receiver, and I'm not so sure that Olsen isn't a #2 TE masquerading as a #1 TE because we have no one better to take it from him.

We don't see the defensive line consistently try to bat down passes at the line of scrimmage. Our slot receivers rarely see the field in lieu of Dud's bizarre man-crush with the option/pistol bullshit that gets us nowhere. Our current secondary is generally a disgrace with a few moments of competence. But damnit, the relentless soft zone crap hasn't worked for us, and the coaching staff keeps doing that. Drafting the best corner in the draft won't fix that, because they'll try to mutate him into something that he isn't.

I don't care where we draft or who we draft. Until we get smarter, more consistent coaching, this franchise won't turn around, and having fans suggest that this season doesn't matter because we need higher draft picks isn't something anyone should embrace or tolerate.

I only care to win two more games this year and those are the games against Atlanta and Philly.

I honestly could care less about the others

Mante Tao the LB from ND would create the best LB's in the NFL.

MLB-Tao

WLB-Kuchely

SLB-Beason

Sub LB-Davis

To hell with "finishing strong." We play joke teams the rest of the season and I would rather to tank and atleast get a good draft pick instead of finishing strong against bad teams. My fear is we finish 6-10 or 7-9 and mess up our draft position yet again. Hope we tank for a top 3 pick and give our GM a strong hand.

RR talking to Chud about team strategy prior to the start of the 2012 season: "To hell with "finishing strong". My fear is we finish 6-10 or 7-9 and mess up our draft position yet again. Hope we tank for a top 3 pick and give Marty a strong hand."

Is PantherTrain84 really Ron Rivera?
