They should have huge amounts of cap space in 2016 as a quick run through of some projected cuts and placeholder cap charges should leave them with over $60 million in cap room if no big free agents are brought in and the cap continues to rise at a $10M a year pace. That is the season where they should be considering spending, not so much this one.
So that's what the light at the end of the tunnel looks like...
Shouldn't it be SCP? I mean dude single handedly saved our season last year with by adjusting his helmet to the proper position. The weekly hype thread should also be taken into serious consideration as well.
Though I only recently created an account, I've been a daily browser for a few years... suffice it to say that the Huddle is a major consumer of my downtime.
That being said, last year's offseason exploded our fanbase. I still have random people in public notice my shirt, key ring, or car tag and decide to tell me how wrong the Panthers were with Smitty. Some claim to be "dedicated" fans who "just stopped trusting" our FO and even stopped watching.
*****From the average, casual Panther fan's perspective:*****
What drastic move(s) this year do you believe could counter the implosion of last year? Signing a great FA, Gettlemagic in the draft, coaching overhaul... or does it just have to be a ring?
Welcome to the Huddle.
I don't believe drastic moves would benefit us all that much. Our patient approach is working. The front office has been killer in drafting and as long as they do a better job of protecting Cam, I'm happy. Drastic moves are what got us into this mess and I am looking forward to more sustained success over the next decade. Then being able to get the right player at the right position instead of throwing tons of money because it's such a position of need.
We, the Huddle collectively, almost single handedly got the Panther jersey voted as the best of all time. I think together we could not only help out a bro but we could crush another competition while we're at it. Make it happen fellas (and ladies.)
I think the thing with KB is the people who watch him week in and week out know just how good this young man is going to be. When he finally puts it all together holy smokes are we going to have a fantastic receiver for the next decade. Now his concentration has to match his physical skill. I think he'll get there sooner than later.
