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.

think about it a different way, it looks like the top WR will be a 2/3 pick this season. We can win out, and pick 12-15th and maybe get the 2nd or 3rd wr, OR we can have a number 1 QB throwing to a #1 WR. on top of that, a couple of really good o line guys are predicted to go early in the second. and the rookies are cheap.

This would never work. it takes us 2-3 years to develop a WR before we cut him...

I agree...to a point. See, I HATE the idea of throwing games away and conceding a loss in order to ensure draft position. I really, really do. At the same time, it is pointless to risk injury of some guys who have semi-serious nicks and bruises. Rest anybody who MAY be hurt, pull guys up off the bench or practice squad (if you have to) and see what they've got. Rest of the season should be about staying healthy and evaluation of talent across the board so that the new GM has good film of most of the roster and can see what he has to work with and maximizing our roster for next year. If we can win a game, win it, but don't do anything silly like let a guy play through injury or anything like that.

Need to lose out is a bunch of crap. Anyone who has a competetive bone in their body knows you want to win everytime out, regardless of record. If we have quitters on this team they need to be weeded out. No draft pick is a sure bet.This team needs more than just a high first round pick to turn things around.

It will never happen....last year we had a golden opportunity to lose out and even give the Colts a win that would have sealed the deal...we didn't do it.

We could have traded Luck or Cam for 4 very high picks.
