Happy Panther

If we had won vs 49ers the winningest % coach in Panthers history would be....

Ron Rivera.

 

Or if he wins the opener next year.

 

But he is already the winningest regular season coach

Also Seifert is doing well retired in Nevada...rooting for the 49ers and no hard feelings.

Seifert, who also served as the team’s de facto general manager during his three years, did give the Panthers a great going-away present. His final draft was the best the Panthers ever had. He picked linebacker Dan Morgan, defensive tackle Kris Jenkins and wide receiver Steve Smith in the first three rounds of the 2001 draft. All eventually made the Pro Bowl, and Smith became the best player in team history.
 
When I remarked that Smith was still here 13 years later and that the Panthers should be indebted to the former coach for that, Seifert laughed and said: “You could also say I gave them an opportunity to get a pretty good pass rusher – a guy who helped them get to the Super Bowl. Out of something bad came something good, right?”
 
Seifert was referring to that 1-15 season of 2001, which was so bad it allowed the Panthers to draft Julius Peppers with the No.2 overall pick in 2002.

I think he means the coach with the highest winning percentage.

BRING BACK SEIFORD

 

From what I've read and heard, players hated him.

 

Smitty has had some less than glowing things to say about him.

Winningest coach has nothing to do with winning percentage.  The two are totally different.  Thread fail.

    • Elbows too pointy. Would not bang.
    • On the surface this team seems greatly improved but in reality we added a geriatric at DE and SS. Our LT is bad enough that the Vikings thought getting Remmers in return was an upgrade, and our greatly improved offense includes a rookie RB who dominated the 5th best college conference and a hybrid RB/WR who isn't good enough to stick at either position. That being said, I'm hopeful it works out.
    • First, let me say that I pretty much only watch the NBA during the playoffs (or when I'm absolutely bored and channel surfing, which is very very seldom). I am really a fan of players and coaches and not necessarily teams except for the Spurs. That being said, I do support the Hornets as they are a North Carolina team---the "home" team, if you will.  The problem is I don't see any way that they will credibly compete for a championship (because they really haven't come close in franchise history). Gone are the days of Grand Ma Ma and Dell Curry, but even then one would be hard pressed to really believe. Unless they happen to draft a legitimate, and I mean legitimate, superstar that wants to be here, I can't see it. I go from year to year in June saying "Perhaps this is the year," but reality sets in during December.  Well, perhaps this is the year that they at least become credible. Monk was arguably the best pure shooter in the draft. Can he create his own shot---break 'em down and break some ankles to be a legitimate point guard or 2-guard? We will see. Bacon may be underrated. We will see. Does the other Superman in Charlotte have enough juice to make a credible run and get the Hornets over the hump. I don't know.  It's just hard to believe that the Hornets will actually become truly relevant when you look at their history, and that has to really suck as a hardcore fan.
