if decisions have to be defended and excuses made, it's probably warranted.
I wish we didn't need reassuring threads every year because questionable decisions were made once again.
Well I'm just going to do what every other Panther fan does and hope it works out. Seems that's all we ever have.
the reason for my departure from my normal, natural, and more comfortable homer posting and viewpoint is that i've just grown weary of the same old song and dance. we lose most of our games for 2/3 of the season, enough to eliminate us from playoff contention and then see the team turn around and finally get their poo together making you believe that next year things will be a continuing of the impressive play at the end of the season....only to see them make yet another regression.
i don't know that shula is any better of a play caller than chud. it's hard for me to see that we haven't taken a step backward. chud's just had more success than shula and he's had more experience doing it...even in san diego he was doing it. it's not that i think chud is all that great at play calling either, i just don't see shula as being an upgrade at all.
the most optimistic view point of any but the most blind homers will be that we maintain what was being done at the end of last year. i don't know of any actual critical thinkers who expect us to be better than we were at the end of the season. most are just thinking that we won't go backward.
i'm sorry if that's just not enough for me anymore.
