A WHOLE PIE!

If you say these things:

"This team isn't serious about winning."

Or

"JR doesn't care, he just wants to make money."

Or

"We have a culture of mediocrity."

Then you should be slapped upside the head with the thickest slab you can find.

1.) If this team doesn't care about winning, then why are we 7-9 and not 4-12 like all the other teams that dicked around after falling behind early? This team fought back from an early deficit to a division rival that had embarrassed us last year and stuck it to them in their own dome while ensuring they will be known as the worst defense of all time. We trash talked the NFC leading Falcons and then backed it up. Thomas Davis fought through three surgeries just to make it back on the field for us, Charles Johnson backed up his big money with stellar play, and the Kraken turned into a monster. Cam Newton broke out if his early struggles and the entire team stuck together. THEY CARE ABOUT WINNING.

2) It infuriates me to see people ripping on the man who fought tooth and nail to bring the Panthers to life, and did so with by far the least amount of handouts from the local government of any NFL owner. Next time you want to think JR is just in it for the money remember that Mike Brown basically forced Cincinatti to subsidize his team, has the NFL's cheapest and smallest staff, and isn't the slightest but concerned of that team's long history of blackouts.

JR, on the other hand, for good or ill, has paid his players top dollar, paid Fox as a top five coach in his tenure, and finally canned one of his closest friends to make sure people knew losing was unacceptable. JR CARES ABOUT WINNING.

3.) We don't have a culture of mediocrity, we have a culture of frustrated aspirations. The time of players around here coasting on past accomplishments is long gone, because this crop hasn't achieved anything. Yet. But they want to, and they try to, and early on they failed due to mistakes and circumstances that entail both players and coaches. But they are learning how to win. Up until two weeks ago, we never won a game when Cam had a turnover. Then we won two in a row, and in the second scored 44 points without Cam being involved in a single score. They are learning how to build on success. NO ONE INVOLVED WITH THE PANTHERS ACCEPTS LOSING.

So gripe and complain about why you think we have struggled to achieve our goals, but don't make ridiculous statements that are clearly false and pass them off as your intelligent insight. We've had bad breaks and individual failures, but this team I'd tending upward and will soon enough be accomplishing everything we hope for and more.

Every thread, all you do is whine. It's old. Go cry alone for an hour and then come back if you have something intelligible to say.

Every year "this team is trending upwards and will soon be accomplishing everything we hope for and more".

We've gone above .500 four times since the team was created. If no one involved with the Panthers accepts losing, I'm surprised they haven't killed themselves. They've been miserable for years.

And honestly, we have no business calling what we have as "a culture of mediocrity". That's being highly generous. We'd have to go on quite the multi-year tear to work ourselves up to mediocrity. We've been bottom-feeding for quite a while.

There is no doubt in my mind JR wants to win. He just believes in Ron Rivera whom he knows much better than the people on these internet message boards.

All you guys are acting like your happy. You hate on me? But I'm not seeing the problem Rivera is the worst coach in Panthers history. poo atleast I'm being honest.

We do have a culture of mediocrity, and that is putting it nicely. That is a fact, you can't argue that...the proof is in the pudding.
