I remember when George Seifert dumped Steve Beuerlein and went after Jeff Lewis with the intent of making him the starter. I was in disbelief for probably a week.

If Lewis ever wound up playing a single snap in a game that counted for us, I've forgotten it.

39 IMO would suggest high odds of something unnatural...as well as when people suffer from a natural cause it is normally named quickly (battling a disease or heart attack)

I remember this as well. Those were strange days in Panther land. Loved Steve Beuerlein.
Seifert's a tool.

From what I've heard, George Seifert had a personality that would have made Gregg Williams proud.

I remember someone complaining about how John Fox used to always call injured guys "day to day". Darin Gantt replied that at least that was better than Seifert's standard line of "he'll be out one to six weeks" :unsure:

That's a sad thing to hear. I remember when we signed him prior to the 1999 season to be the QB of the future. Then Steve Beuerlein stepped up and took the job for good. When Seifert cut Beuerlein prior to the 2001 season to make Jeff Lewis the QB it proved to be his undoing. Especially since Jeff Lewis didn't even make the team that year. If he keeps Beuerlein he might still have a job.

RIP Jeff Lewis.

Seifert cut Beuerlein because he "didn't want to be tempted to use him"

Fast forward to today and JR is seriously considering making Beane the HMFIC

Why do goobers run this team
