Realistically speaking, we've basically clinched a top 15 pick this year. You'll get an instant starter.

That said. I'm hoping we win out in December, yet Ron still gets released. What I'm really looking for is some late game heroics by some of our younger players (Cam, LaFell, Hardy, Norman), and not displays of coaching prowess. I've seen enough of Ron. I'm sick of watching us get M.Bisoned in the 4th quarter of every game, and I'd never seen us lose that way with so much frequency until he started coaching. He's a good X's and O's HC, and by that I mean we're not getting dominated schematically, but he's just a horrible decision maker. I've touched on this point before, so I'd rather not waste time elaborating but you can easily understand what I mean if you've been following the team this season.

Winning out will do a couple of things for us. It'll boost the morale of the team we have now, and most of those players will still be here next season. It's extremely hard to turnover a huge chunk of the roster given our specific situation. It'll also make this team more attractive to prospective executives and coaches moving forward.

Back to winning out, the key word here is hope. We've got 4 opponents left (Atlanta, New Orleans, San Diego, Oakland). It took this team playing some of its best football this season against the Falcons in their first game and they still somehow beat us. Highly unlikely that we defeat them, but the rest of the opponents are definitely beatable. We lost Ron Edwards, who took whatever run defense we had with him, so that won't help us.

As for the new GM, I'm confident Accorsi can help direct Richardson to the right answer, and I hope Richardson stops being so involved in everything. There's a big chance one of the frontrunning HC candidates (Marc Ross, Greg Roman) get offered the job, and I hope they bring the mentalities of their superiors with them. An annoying characteristic of Hurney was the fact that he thought his scouting was infallible. Start Fua, sign the guys I drafted to ridiculous contract extensions with paralyzing amounts of signing bonus money, trade up for this soft roadgrader, trade up for some shitty Florida State DE. This team needs to sign more free agents from other teams to compete. Nobody drafts 7 starters every year, but Hurney acted like he did for a bit.

I stopped reading at "the team we have now" we have too many players with a losing mentality. This team doesn't have the talent people think

As said above: we just lost to the Chiefs. And we are not realistically just a top 15 pick, we are a top 5 pick. I will be surprised if we win another game.

Only thing to look forward is the offseason of high draft picks and new coaching staffs.

I'm praying to lose. It'll benefit us a lot for the future.
Fug the one who argues about having a losing mentality.
We're already in a losing season.

LOSE out! Gets Top5 pick!

I have a similar mentality to the op

Fvck...we know the season is now lost so they need to stop the charade and prove to the fans they give a damn about winning if they want to be distinguishable in any regard at an NFL level because as someone posted we lost to the freaking chiefs. Prove your worth something, prove you can coach, please for the love of god someone save us from this crap. This GM signing is going to be very important to our future and I can only hope it pans out and we find someone who can truly wield people in here.

Right now though: Disorganized, no team image/cohesiveness, no discipline, no leadership and its annoying.

All I ask for is a win against the Falcons. I don't mind if we lose @SD, vs OAK and @NO, just give me this win vs ATL.

I want a top 2 pick. Then find a trade partner that falls in love with a QB or Manti Teo and we trade out for a slew of picks.

Good post. Great point about hurney thinking he could draft 7 starters every year. Guy was delusional. I'm sure all GMs love their picks when they make them. The best ones, however, can cover up the busts with good roster management and recover. Hurney just insisted on staying the course with obvious busts until he finally got fired about 3 seasons too late.

Let's start by trying to win the coin toss first, seems hard enough...
No, seriously. This has been a bad season so far. Play-offs are gone, coaching staff most likely won't be in front of the steering wheel next season, and roster changes are badly needed.

Let's just start at the beginning, and hope that the new GM is someone who can help us with the cap situation, and manages to fill up the most needed gaps with our draft picks. I'm quite positive for the future, cause we (despite the negative balance right now) do have lots of talent at crucial positions. I believe we can make the coin flip the right side for the Panthers next season, hoping it will bring us close to PO.
