If Cam goes elsewhere, we'll get it rubbed in our faces once again in terms of what a sorry organization we have in place. Remember when John Fox was the root of all of our problems? Just get a coach in here that has some balls they said. Fox is a lousy coach they said. How has his career gone since leaving Charlotte? Hell, the guy took a The Golden Calf of Bristol coached team to the playoffs and actually won a road playoff game with that team. If Cam left here, he'd find more success elsewhere and it would suck to watch. I live in Denver and have to have it rubbed in my face constantly about what a joke of a franchise the Panthers are to have kicked John Fox to the curb. I thought the Panthers needed a change from Fox, but it was actually the opposite - Fox needed a change from the Panthers.
Unfortunately, it's finally coming home to roost for me that the Panthers issues are bigger than any player or coach. We have an organizational issue. JR wants to mimic the Steelers organizationally, but we aren't even close.
The playoff win was at home for Denver, but whatever, I agree with your point. Fox was and still is a great coach. For almost his entire tenure in Carolina he was considered one of the top head coaches in the NFL.
Imitating will get you no where. You need to innovate to be successful. The Panthers always seem to be just a little bit behind the curve.
