This Franchise is on the right track

And it has the right personnel in place as well.

Big ups to JR and Gettleman, and Coach Rivera.

I'm totally on board with the internal promotions of Shula and Proehl.

I think that this Franchise has turned a corner today. It seems as though this place is still split with the "we wanted Rivera gone" crew and the "We wanted Rivera to stay" crew.

Some don't like the fact that we have promoted Shula to OC, but I think that was probably the best hire of the entire offseason thus far. Hopefully I'm wrong and Gettleman turns out to be an even better hire than we all have imagined he would be.

Very excited about the return of Jim Skipper!!! If he thought he had an awesome backfield during his last tenure here, then he must be foaming at the mouth this time with Double Trouble still in tact, and the addition of FB/RB Mike Tolbert.

I don't know how anybody isn't excited by the news today, but they are out there... People here seem to think that Big Names and success are synonymous when in fact, it's the furthest from the truth. Big names don't mean instant success. In order for you to get a big name, you have to start somewhere.

We have all of the pieces in place now... From this point fwd it's on Gettleman and company to unscrew our current cap conundrum and prepare for the draft. No one knows what will come of some of our players but rest assured there will be highly volatile debates about every single player that comes and or goes from this point fwd.

Today is a GREAT day to be a Panthers fan!!!

EDIT: At least when we are successful this year, I can actually prove that I was one of the very few who felt this way from day 1

Keep pounding TCF. Contrary to popular belief, you are not alone.

Alright,

Why do you think Shula was the best hire out there? Considering his record as an OC in the NFL I am wary of him being my favorite team's OC. What do you think about his record and why are you not wary of it as well? That question is kind of a when did you stop beating your wife so please ignore that aspect.

On a completely positive note though I am also very interested in the Panthers bringing back Jim Skipper and I wonder if it will have a positive effect on our running backs from a production standpoint. My suspicion is that it will. What are your thoughts on this?

PS: Totally not kidding. I beg you to persuade me to your point of view. Negativity sucks.

Name another offensive coach out there that has spent the last two seasons working with our franchise QB in the same playbook, and has spent every single week communicating this offense to him and explaining the whys and hows of it from top to bottom.

I don't like the Shula hire at all... I'll gladly admit it if I'm wrong but I highly doubt it. There were far better candidates out there and we stuck with the "in house" policy. Cam has progressed since his rookie season but how much of that was Shula? or was it just Cam's hard work? If you notice Cam's foot work hasn't improved I hate to nitpick but I'm just getting tired of the old formula of "Let's just stick in house instead of getting the better candidate".

As for the Prohel and Rogers promotions, I'm glad Prohel got promoted and as for Rogers this is alright even if there were better candidates out there he (April) he preformed well..

I'll be less pissed off once we watch preseason games and hopefully Shula can prove me wrong.
