It will be five years before Kasay can go on the Panthers ring of honor, per policy. But he will be up there for sure.





He shoulda never had to taint himself with another jersey. Just another Hurney fug up.

He's already dead to.most idiots around here, due to his time as a Saint.

This thread will be entertaining to read later.

Contracts John. Welcome back!

Kasay's impact went beyond the field. He taught teammates, fans and co-workers lessons that will never be forgotten: http://pnth.rs/10l53xq


I was wondering about him the other day, the man should have never left. Thanks for everything John.

Take it in Panther fans... For one day...We will have a reliable kicker on the roster.

Cool!!! :thumbsu:

Truly a class act and a great kicker. Thanks for the memories John.

This and Jake's final press conference always get me


Dear Panther Fans,
I wanted to personally write this letter to every Carolina Panther fan. Words cannot express how truly thankful my family and I are for the most wonderful 16 years of our lives.

We came to the Panthers as a young family with a 3-month-old baby. We leave with 4 children, 2 of whom are in high school. In between, you have loved and cheered and blessed us way more than we ever deserved. The only thing I could offer in return was the promise that I would try my best, every day, to make you proud.

Thank you for your encouragement when I failed. Thank you for the celebrations when we won. And most of all, thank you for letting me leave with a treasture-trove of memories that time cannot erase.

It is my hope that the greatest years in Panthers history are still to come. A franchise decorated with numerous Lombardi Trophies. Dozens of Hall-of-Fame players. And a region that swells with pride whenever they speak of their beloved Panthers.
It has been a tremendous privilege to live in Charlotte, to play for the, and to be able to share my life-long dream of playing in the NFL with all of you.

I pray that this will be a wonderful season and we will all get to watch the Panthers return to their rightful place as one of the most feared teams in the NFL.

May God bless you. Thank you again for the memories.

John Kasay

John was and continues to be the living definition of class. Im so very glad that his last day in the league will be as a Panther.

Great news.  One of the greatest Panthers.  Welcome back for a day, John.  You were missed.

Class act and a deserved member of the Ring of Honor.

think we can convince him to kick this year?


Yup, great news... was hoping this would happen but I wasn't sure if Kasay would allow himself to be honored in this way. 

I'm still butt hurt from Ray Finkle err I mean John Kasay for kicking that ball out of bounds.

He should have never left.

If we were 50 yards and in with the game on the line my Dad would always declare victory before the kick and he was always right.  I was too afraid to jinx us to ever do that.  Thanks John.

Awesome news.


Welcome back Kasay, even if it is only for a day.

He should have never left.

He didn't have much of a choice.  He was released.  He should have never been released.


Now, when his Jake going to sign his one day contract and rightfully retire a Panther?

Can't believe we let him walk, and only then did we realize what we had.  Top 3 of the Hurney fug-ups.



Can't believe we let him walk, and only then did we realize what we had.  Top 3 of the Hurney fug-ups.

I can't put it top 3.  Let's see, in no particular order...


Armanti Edwards

Everette Brown

Jimmy Clausen

Eric Shelton

DeAngelo Williams contract

Jon Beason contract


Dwayne Jarrett

I'll give him a pass on Keary Colbert and Otah as both guys proved early on that they had the talent to be starters in the NFL if they had the want to.


The rest of the NFL saved Hurney from his ultimate fail.  Word is that he was trying like hell to trade our next year's 1st rounder to trade up to take Clausen.  Just think about it... he tried to trade what would end up being the #1 overall pick for Jimmy fugin Clausen.  Just think about the situation we'd be in right now if that would've happened.  Absolutely hopeless.
