  1. I'm sure we as a fanbase wouldn't just take the L and move on. We would be bitching about it years later. Lawsuit is stupid, but the NFL really needs to figure out a way to not let a game be won/loss by a horrifically moronic call/no-call. Officiating has really become a laughing stock.

    Mel Kiper's First 2019 Mock - 01/17/19

    It's like Kiper called Gettleman and asked who he would draft if he were still GM of the Panthers.

    Why are we so spoiled?

    We have different ways of viewing things. I dont look at the bottom half and say I'm glad I'm not them. I say to myself why isn't everyone looking at me as a perpetual winner.

    CMC & CAM forced coaches hands

    My source gets his info from extra fortune cookies when he delivers twice a week.

    It's not NCAA basketball and you're comparing the Panthers to teams that have a long established history of success. Teams have salary caps and can't just get 5 of the top 20 players in the league based on name only. If UNC or Duke kept having losing seasons or got bounced round 1 as a 15th or 16th seed after winning a crappy conference with a losing record, Williams and Coach K might be looking for new jobs. Take into consideration Rivera has never had the success either of those two have and he would be hitting the bricks. This team had not put together back to back winning seasons in its existence. We as fans aren't asking for a NFC Championship every year, even though we would really like it. We are asking for a team that competes every year. I consider a 10-6 season that doesn't make a wildcard successful. I know there's off years and things you can't control, but teams can and have dealt with key injuries and carried on to winning records. Catching lightning in a bottle in 15 is the only reason RR is employed in Carolina. Fans deserve better than what we are getting. Back to back winning seasons in 8 years under RR and over 20 years as a franchise is really not a lot to ask for.

    It's official: Thomas Davis is not coming back

    Then if we are really going to move forward as a team and head in a different direction, it's time for Ron to GTFO as HC.

    8 years without back to back winning seasons under RR, and the entire franchise as a whole has never had them. Overwhelming loyalty to players/coaches when it's obvious to everyone for years they should have been put out to pasture. Ridiculously dumb moves by Hurney and Gettleman. Inconsistent performances all the way around the board for over 20 years. This fanbase isn't spoiled, they're sick of mediocrity. We want, and we deserve, better.
  8. I'd like to see him go play for a contender and get a ring. Pats, or even though it's against everything I believe in, the Taints, so he can get a SB ring. I'd hate to see him play for any team that has no shot at the SB.

    You want to contend again, right?

    If we want to get rid of someone who's too old, too slow, not able to keep up a full season at peak level in today's NFL, maybe we should look at RR too. We want to contend again, more than every other year, right?
  10. IMO, TD and Shaq provide almost the same skill set, with TD having more game experience. Based on that alone, the difference of 7m dollar salary doesn't seem worth it to me. I get we are only talking a single year contract with TD, but I don't believe Shaq is more than an average LB. I think we have larger holes at other areas like CB (slot), DE, OL, S that need more attention where money could be spent better.
  11. He will interview someone for the position, 5 years from now.

    Meanwhile, in New Orleans...

    Good way to motivate your players. Better than throwing them under the bus every press conference.

    TD not returning per WFNZ

    Vet minimum is 1 million. Rumor is TD was willing to play for a little over vet minimum so he could stay in Carolina. At 1.5 - 2 million per year, these are the comparables for outside linebackers per OTC. TD at that price doesn't look like a bad option.
