thats the dumbest thing i have ever heard.. you know that big thing that happens in the off season called the DRAFT

uhmmmmm, you created this thread so how can you say anything you heard was dumb? what the hell does a high draft pick guarantee? another 6 win season? i guess thats better than what we have going on now.

The problem with the OP idea is that RR is not going to tank this season because his job depends on how we finish out. Get read for 2-4 more wins

his future depends on it, either here or elsewhere. whether for another DC job or HC job somewhere down the line, they are going to look at what he did and how he finished. if he just gave up then no one is going to hire him.

and the players do not benefit from losing either.

and i guarantee you that if some order from the top came down for the players and the team to "take one for the team" and lose....esp., just for a draft pick...that a struggling fanbase would start to walk out the door at an even faster pace. it won't matter what they look like in the future because they will forever be known as a team that tanked it so they could pick up a shiny WR or something like that. they will be known as a team that laid down and just didn't care about winning.

aside from a draft pick or two, nothing good would come from it...but a whole lot of damage could be done from tanking.

nothing else has worked in ole say...... 7 years? lmao

you think losing on purpose to get good draft picks that still won't get the needed coaching will help. We've been in every game except two and we've lost the lead in most of those. To me, that doesn't shout draft picks are needed. It tells me that we need better coaching. In addition, who the heck wants to lose on purpose? What will that do for players mentality? So on and so forth.these guys are professionals. Do you quit when you've failed and hope that someone else comes in to help you? Or do you try harder? That's a dumb question, you'd quit! Laughing at you lyao...

its not a loser mentality. i want to win as much as the next guy, but this season is lost. This gives us the absolute best chance for next season.

It epitomizes a loser attitude. I will never, NEVER, advocate losing intentionally.

if i was losing i would step back and approach the problem and correct it. not expect someone to come help me. I garuntee if i was gm/coach the team wouldnt of ever failed like this. and yes, for the rest of the season, i would make sure the 2nd string guys got plenty of playing time. Id find the people that step up, make new captains. Cams leadership role would be addressed, and id cut some players just for cap space for new talent. and i would find the ones that are bringing the team down and get rid of them. CJ said people arent putting in work.. cut them!! its not a complicated recipe, but in doing so i would maximize the potential for next season (key) by limiting starters, preventing injuries, high draft picks, and getting 2/3 guys playing time so they are ready to step in next season on rotation. garuntee a 12 win season doing it my way

Yes, because tanking the rest of the season would be a great way to get rid of the losing culture we've established...

Maybe if the team tries to lose they'll end up winning games

Because we seem to fail at nearly every single thing we set out to do

We should never play to lose a game. The new GM and Head Coach should see who we should keep and offer the high paid players a restructured contract or trade them for more draft picks. We could then trade up using the extra picks. No matter, we should cut or trade Clausen and draft a QB to push Cam brcause he will be on his last year of his contract and may walk.

When you look at the 6 remaining games, the Panthers have a legit chance at winning 4 of them: Philly, KC, San Diego, and Oakland. They end up winning 4 of 6, and at a record of 6-10. Sound familiar?

Coaches are coaching for their future.

Players are playing for roster spots.

Nobody can afford to tank right now.

The idea is utterly unrealistic.
