Nope not at all. You don't fix a dam by placing bubble gum in its cracks.

Is this a trick question?

I mean the Panthers have a future like the Bills ahead of them for the next decade or so if they don't get things changed up soon.

It’s not very encouraging. We are not really making any changes that matter. Ron might fire another assistant but Washington or Rodgers  keeping any kinda job is disheartening. Everyone says he’s a great DL coach but name one player that we’ve drafted that has over achieved under Washington

not at all, and since there seem to be tepper shills here i'm gonna guess this is the plan.  don't do squat, send out the minions to say be patient, teppie is a genius.

doesn't really matter who your DL coach is when your best pass rusher is Mario Addison. KK is overpaid, Poe is trash, Butler is a bust, and there aren't better options behind those guys.

Absolutely right...

Forget coaching changes or firing the GM or any of that.  After such a monumental collapse to end the season, after such a promising start, shouldn't something be said or done by someone in a leadership role with this franchise to address the frustrated and disappointed fan base?  And I get that Cam was hurt, I get all that, but you can't completely fall apart in such a pathetic fashion and just coast into the off-season without some form or gesture of reassurance to the fans.  This is what bothers me more than anything.  Keep the current staff, fine, but give us some insight into why next year will be better by making no changes.

And no, unceremoniously terminating Thomas Davis, the ultimate Panther, is not how you send a message of change to the fans.

What do we want for TD, a parade?

he made multi millions and is set financially for life

his play was barely above average this year

the only reassuring we fans need is to get better players on our team

Not at all! Maybe just because of my own expectations. Having a new owner,  I expected him to make immediate changes because of loss skid, but nothing. Maybe he didn't think the was a better option, idk. Allowing Assistants to be fired that had no direct impact on the loses and keeping those in their same positions that did,  is ridiculous! And not resigning Thomas Davis, the 2nd best LB on the team is crazy.

Got rid of one of our defensive line coaches (pass rush was a major issue), got rid of a secondary coach. As of right now, it looks like they are trying to replace those coaches with well proven coaches. Washington, whom IS a good coach, is getting the help he needs, and defensive calls will be made by one of the best in the business. 

Not sure how much.more can honestly be asked for. Anybody whom truly expected Rivera to be gone, were way on on a limb with no real support.

Don't you think they are still working on that plan? 

I honestly don't think there is ANYTHING they could say that would change the majority of opinions just here on the huddle, not to mention Panther fans everywhere.

No.

I expected Tepper to get this thing poppin... not the way I would do things, but that's why he is rolling in cash and I'm sitting in a cubicle.

I've seem more dissatisfaction with 9 months of Tepper's ownership than I saw in the last 25 years of Jerry Richardson...who more than failed the franchise, he was an embarrassment.

Why is this?

    • Wow, just wow.  Do you popular vote guys actually think Republicans could just go and change their platform so that it could possibly appeal to people who live in population centers?  And that it could actually be feasible because the Overton Window in the USA is well to the right as it stands and if they just dialed back the religio-fascist and racist bullshit and focused on fiscal issues and personal freedom it might work?  Just like that, go and join everyone else in the 21st century?  Must be fun living in fantasy land.
    • Bingo. Luck is a smart guy, finished his degree in Architectural Design. He has enough money to start his own business now.  Cam has many other ventures making him money outside of football and his philanthropic efforts are well reported. The time will come where he says enough is enough and I’m 100% sure that thought crossed his mind when he saw that Andrew Luck retired. Will Cam retire this season? Hell no. He’s not going to let his teammates down after prepping with them all offseason. Could he retire after this season or the next? Absolutely. Anyone who says otherwise is painfully naive or a blind homer.
    • You can look at this glass half empty of glass half full. Half empty. The o-line can't protect Cam and wasn't properly address in the off season like I wanted. Cam's body is breaking down, and we have poop backups. Greg's body is breaking down. We don't have a dominant DT like Kris Jenkins, and we don't have dominant DE like Peppers, so 4-3 won't be great. We don't have a dominant NT like Vince Wilfork, so 3-4 won't be great. Our secondary lacks a Josh Norman type DB who will make big play INTS and pass breakups. Our passing game might be spooky bad, like no complete deep passes for multi-game stretches. We face the Saints (SB contender), Falcons (solid team), and the much improved Bucs. Yikes. Half full. We have speed on offense, and speed kills. CMC's burst is nothing short of elite, and teams will have to scheme their defense to contain him. Moore and Samuel are play-makers, and add to that combo the intelligent and extremely talented Greg Olsen and you have enough weapons on offense to do well. Cam might just have a healthy season, and if he does, then the talent is there to win. The o-line just needs some time to gel as the season moves along, but the talent is in place. The d-line looks solid on paper, and our secondary should do better than last season with more pressure being applied from Burns and company.  I can be negative or positive.
