A good coach/GM can have instant success.....rebuilding taking years is a myth.

JR cares about one thing.....his bottom line...if that's looking good.....that's all that matters.....

Panthers have had 4 winning seasons in 17 years. A wasted season is the norm. But I will still root for them and defend them till the day I die.

If we have another crap season next year then we deserve to be made fun of and called a crap franchise. If Richardson doesn't make drastic changes and if we don't see results than we don't deserve Cam or any kind of success. There is no reason for us to be a mediocre team, let alone a bottom feeder! Simply no excuses any longer.

It will probably be another bad season but we won't be bad forever. We will get back to the playoffs and be a feared team within the next few years

I love how I get negged for this. You Whine&Cheese POS

We are not many pieces away from being a very good team, and the most important one is Cams short and mid length accuracy. No important players will leave in FA this year. A couple of high draft picks to boot.

Actually, worst case scenario is that we bring in a bad coach next year, win despite him and watch he run the team to the ground for the rest of Cam career.

JR is a business man but if you think he does not want to be in the hunt for a trophy, you are crazy.

He would not have fired Hurney if that assumption was factual.


2010 says otherwise. His apology letter says otherwise. Telling us it would cost to much to hire a coach at the end of 2010 says otherwise. It isn't an assumption, that notion is based on nothing but evidence. Firing Hurney is peanuts considering what JR did to this franchis ein 2010, and there is no garauntee that will bring wins. FIring Hurney was obvious, any idiot owner would have done it long before JR did.

He is a buisness man and buisness comes first, before the team and before the trophy. Period. He doesn't care about an empty stadium lol, PSL owners pay their dues whether they show up or not.

JR needs to hire poeple to take over because he sucks misrebly at his job. As a buisnessman, if he had to evaluate himself, he'd fire himself.

As a PSL holder, I don't agree with you.

2010 was unfortunate. It happened, it's over.

Every season except that one indicates that he has tried many things to bring a trophy to Charlotte.

It has not happened.

Winning Superbowls is not an exact science.

He hired 'hot coordinators' in Fox and Capers, both from winning organizations. He hired a former coach who was from the hottest organization at the time who had rings. He gave each of them everything they asked for. Two had mixed success. One was a failure.

The worst mistake I think he made was hiring Hurney instead of a football guy as GM and perhaps he did that because he had Polian and got burned by it. Rivera again, a hot coordinator. He failed.

A man who pays to fly almost his whole organization (including those who work at the stadium) to a Super Bowl as he did in 2004 is not some tight wad loser of an owner like a few of the others in this league.

Honestly, I think the only thing we can't afford is for Cam to "LeBron" us and win on another team

Rivera will be gone. Trust me.
JR is never going to keep a 6-10 and 3-9 HC for another year.

JR cares about our fans. We wanted Foxy gone, we got it. We wanted Dwill and Stewart, we got them. If we want Chico gone and Jarius Byrd in the offseason, we'll it that also.

Lets face it guys, we underachieved this year. BIG TIME. If they decide to keep ol Stone Wall Rivera I do not know what I will do with myself. I think its just another wasted season in my book. Nothing positive going in, another year of Cam getting blow up by the media ruining his soul. What do you guys think?

No joke and dead serious here.

In the big picture of things we can waste 2 more seasons, Cam Newton is here for 4 more season if he wants to or not, if we are going to keep Cam we are going to need to have a rock solid team around him in years 5-6 with the panthers. Those years will also be peak years for Cam, what ever he's going to develop into as a QB he will be by then.

So what we are this year and next really doesn't matter but from 2014 forward does

I'm confused at all the JR hate. The dude is the owner- its his job to sign the checks and thats it. The last time I checked, the Panthers have been at or near the salary cap every year he as been here with the obvious exception of 2010.

If he was only trying to make money then he has been frankly doing a terrible job of it. I mean, signing 2 rbs to big salaries? Why the fug would he greenlight that move? Or give Charles Johnson a HUGE bonus up front (which hurts the owners pockets more than the salary cap)

Absolutely not, Richardson is a business man but he is not an idiot.

The only way Rivera may have had any hopes was to win out and make a run at the playoffs.
