An article that gives hope for the future

Maybe it is false hope, but hope of any kind is better than despair.

Although I don't really want to hire Parcells or Gruden, the underlying message that this is a team that just needs direction, and statistical basis for that feeling has me more optimistic about our future

http://www.footballp...-of-retirement/

The good-natured jabs at Parcells at the beginning of the post underscore two key points: Parcells was in high enough demand that he could wait for the perfect job to open up and he was smart enough to recognize a good opportunity. I’d argue that Carolina is probably the largest sleeping giant (whatever that means) of the last 20 years. Whoever coaches the 2013 Panthers will probably win 8 games without breaking a sweat. True, the NFC South will be tough, but the Panthers have a strong nucleus and will have some high draft picks.

Never understood the hate on Gruden by some of you guys. The dude can coach some football.

Don't get me wrong, he isn't my first choice, but if it happened I would quickly drink the Kool-Aid.

Guy fails to realize Gruden isn't that great of coach. Maybe when lined up next to a spare like Rivera, he looks like surf n' turf, but all in all, I want someone hungry and here for the next decade. Not a guy looking to land a huge check & jump into a perfect situation.

Give me Mike Zimmer and lets create our own damn Gruden.

The article also illustrates that there is NO problem with this QB running this offense. Even with the trick and bad wrinkles he still throws for more yards when asked to pass than anyone in football. His "down" year isn't one at all. In a lot of ways on a worse team he's been better than his rookie year.

great read...but what is he thinking that parcells would want to do here? coach? GM? run the show?

don't particularly want parcells. don't want gruden unless he's grown up and is less of a putz than he was at tampa. as much as i don't want gruden to come, i don't want another DC turning into a HC. i've grown so weary of that it isn't funny. we need to go aggressive. we need to go offensive.

love the article, tho. "the biggest sleeping giant of the last 20 years". love it.

once this team figures out how to win, it's not going to stop.

I'm a big on Parcells, Caughlin and those type of coaches.....Parcells is a winner...and will put his foot up players' a$$es...which is what this team needs

If it came down to it and Gruden actually gets an interview I would support him 110% for the job. People can say what they want but he can coach football.
