The Problem With Our Fanbase

50 posts in this topic

Yeah you used to be positive and one of the good posters on this board. I can understand getting angry and being upset. But if you are the same person who used to post here, then you will also stop and look at the bigger picture which is not what went wrong this year but who is best leading the Panthers next year. And you will see that Rivera has them playing better right now than they have played in a decade. And that is all you can know right now. Not how they will play next year or who is going to be drafted, etc. And right now Rivera has the team playing potentially better than any other team in the league bar none.

All that talk about meaningless games is really just talk. Players play for pride and I know the Panthers wanted to kick some ass on Sunday. And the Saints didn't want to have a losing season and get beaten in the dome and swept by us this year. I don't think you can find a coach who can make the players we had do any better the last quarter of the season. I just think he will be able to pick up where he left off. Everyone gets it.... With anyone else it is starting all over again. And perhaps going backwards.

I'm sorry, I couldn't make out the rest of your post as I was too distracted by the stinging sensation left by your backhand, lol.

Nah, I read it and I agree we don't know what the future holds, and as I said, I hope he is the guy. Yes, the team played better at the end of the year, but we always do. My concern is winning when things are a stake - like a playoff berth. When Rivera starts out a season with a win and beats a team when all those things are on the line, then I will believe in him. Until then, I don't know... All I can do is hope for the best.

And again, referencing my posting history, I AM the same poster of old. As you mentioned in an earlier post, I'm going through he various stages of emotion, and right now, I'm still angry and disappointed in realizing that we just lost another season.

Benched a guy with game breaking ability? Lol

Adams was benched because he kept fumbling...not coaching mismanagement.

Umm, the "gamebreaking ability" guy was Deangelo.

Nothing was gamebreaking about Joe Adams... Well, maybe gamebreaking in favor of the opponent when he gave them the ball back.

Didn't mean it to come across as an attack. I just meant that when you were more even keeled in your attitude your posts were more balanced as well. More recently they have been predictable and negative. Just not like you......

Anyone who is a Panthers fan wants the team to do well and return to the playoffs. We just differ on who we think can lead us. I saw enough with Rivera to give him another year. But then again I wasn't so ready to ride Fox out on a rail either until he gave up in 2010. But if the team goes a different direction, I will be fine as well. After all I am a Panthers fan for better or worse. I just hope for better and soon. I really think next year is our year. I know I said it last year but I really get the sense that 2012 was a flashback to 2004 all over again.........

For a team that is trying to be like the Steeler's firing a coach after two years is not part of that agenda.

I hope so man... Maybe Prisco was right in his prediction of "taking another step back" before we take one forward.

I completely agree almost across the board on your comments, PD.

"Or keeping him on the bench in favor of Armanti and his breakaway speed featuring his legendary 6th gear."

Edwards really showed that off yesterday by outrunning the New Orleans punter.... oh, that's right... he didn't.

I agree, Armanti leaves a lot to be desired in terms of quickness and flat out speed. I just thought because I dont follow App State football I hadnt had a chance to see his so called "speed and athleticism" yet because the conditions were not prime for him to to turn into Hussein Bolt. lol!

I was a sprinter in college. AE runs like he is trying to highstep his way out of a swimming pool filled with molasses and Pilares legs wobble like a toddler runs like he is wearing a diaper full of poo. Joe is the guy IF he can figure out how ot hold on to the football.

Wins are so rare for us that a regular season win against anyone feels like we won the super bowl. This is reality and will remain reality until this team starts going to the playoffs once in a while again.

the problem with this fanbase is that they are so milquetoast and whipped they'll go to great lengths to rationalize the dumbest moves

if JR picks Beane we'll have 50 fuging posters on here manufacturing reasons he could be a great talent evaluator

You don't have to be sorry about saying it. I am sorry you feel that way. It tells me you have no clue what you are looking at and can't evaluate the progress of the coaches or team. Anyone who can't see the way this team has improved across the board or thinks these game are meaningless doesn't have any idea what they are watching. I promise you that both Atlanta and New Orleans wanted to beat us in the worst way. Yesterday we kept the Saints from going 8-8 and avoiding a losing season. And we won in the dome. It was a divisional rivalry and a big deal.

I wanted the win more than so ever, but having Rivera back for the third year i'm just not okay with that. Don't get me wrong though I do give him credit for turning our defense around and our offense suddenly back on track, but he only did so when his ass was on the line. Like i said I am sorry for saying that I'm okay to lose to the Saints.

I don't need to see a third year to see Rivera is a poo coach. Get him the fug outta here!
