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.

I don't care if the new coaching staff puts Ronald Motherfuging McDonald at QB! I just want to win!!!

It's a legitimate fear. Hopefully we don't hire a douche.

i think that's what it hinges on.

 

what is happening down in tampa is worst than anything i can remember seeing, tho. and not just with freeman...the whole team is going to be getting slammed for several things.

 

as bad and mismanaged as the panthers have been, i don't see it following tampa down that path.

As much as I hate The Bucs, what happened to them was abysmal. I cannot begin to imagine what this fanbase would be like if our new coach decided to oust Newton and Kuechly (Talib reference).

Yep, there was a lot of talk that Schiano wasn't respected in league circles due to his arrogance and pretty much just plain being an asshole.  Looks like that talk was right on the money.

Wouldn't be so quick to assume the Panthers won't end up like that...with a new coaching staff comes new loyalties and if the old guys don't like how things are done, tough.  The new coach will dump you.  Schiano isn't the only new head coach who has done things like that.

No. Tampa Bay is a circus. We have our problems sure, but that is just a whole different level over there.

It is possible, but not likely.

no one has ever handled it as poorly as the bucs have.

 

i'd hope we had a whole lot more class than that.
