it's got to be about the positive impact on the franchise and ended up not just inspiring players on the field, but the fans. These are guys whose presence was missed after they left the field and whose shoes were hard to fill. It's not just about the stats, but the stats will show the kind of impact they had and why they were cheered for. 

there's no denying that sam mills had a very powerful impact on the panthers while he was here and had a long lasting impact on the culture, even though he wasn't the best defensive player we ever had and only played here for three years. who would deny his place of honor here?

who else would you put in that category? Smitty, Jake, Walls, Gross....that's a good start. 

I would add Kasay, Moose, and Peppers.

a few other potentials I would add for consideration would be Kalil, TD, Minter, Rucker, Jenkins, Michael Bates, Williams (even though he was a prick) and Stewart,

When they retire, I would for sure add Olsen, Cam, and Luke. I've got a feeling that CMC will be right there with them at the end of his career because of the pace he's on (after this year he will likely be pushing top 5 in yardage for RBs in panthers history and top 10 in receiving yardage).

Agreed on active players . TD, Olsen, Cam, and Luke all easily get in once retired. If we go way down the line, CMC, KK, and Turner could all be possibilities.

Sorry, Jake fans, I gotta be honest...I never expected Jake Delhomme to make it. Hell, since he made it, the floodgates must be open. Criteria? What Criteria? 

 

Beloved players

No, this is unthinkable to everyone besides you. Cam changed this franchise and elevated it to status it has never been seen before. Wesley walls himself would tell you he doesn’t deserve to be in over Cam. Jordan gross would tell you the same thing. Insane opinion. 

Elevated to a status never seen by you since you obviously weren't a fan then.

so far the criterion for making the hall of honor seems to be:

1. be a carbon based life form

2. wear a panthers jersey once

This might not be too far from the truth. 

I can't even say that the 2015 team beats the 2003 team. 

Honestly,  some of the statements in this thread---in my opinion---skirt being more in tune with a cult of personality than the Panthers' franchise.

---------------

I also learned that Steve Smith hate has no limits among some within the fan base, which is kind of odd for a franchise's leader in receiving yards, probable future HoFer, and giant personality within the sport. The other thing I learned is that Cam is a lock to make the Hall of Fame. As much as I have defended Cam over the years, and bemoaned his lack of legit weapons and relative lack of consistent, first class protection  (befitting of one endowed with such physical prowess and personal weaponry of his own), I certainty won't declare that he's a future HoFer at this point in his career. Don't get me wrong. I'm not saying he won't (or wouldn't) make it, but based upon his work to date, I wouldn't say that he's a lock.

Jake made the pro bowl.  Won the skills comp.  Took us to our first SB.  Was the guy throwing to Smitty during his 05 triple crown season and Moose’s league leading TDs year in 04.

Made the playoffs 3 times, 1 SB, 2 NFCCGs.

There is your criteria.

That's fine. I never said the guy wasn't above average at his job. He certainly didn't do everything by himself. Far from it. 

If anything, it goes to show that a lot of this stuff is very subjective. The bar has been set, so I expect to see a few others guys eventually get in that I wouldn't have expected to get in. Come on down Moose, CJ, Hoover, Morgan (and whoever else)! I will say that Cam is a lock for this honor right now, regardless of whatever else happens.

Lol I’ve forgotten more about this franchise than you know. But solid input. Keep up the great work.

The 2015 team was definitely better than the 2003 team. Delhomme, Gross, and Muhammad have all been on the record saying the 2015 team would beat the 2003 team. If you think me saying that Cam elevated this franchise to a status never seen before means I haven’t been a fan from the beginning, then sorry, but you’re lost.

Cam Newton was the first player in franchise history to win a MVP. Drew Brees has never won a MVP. Is Cam a better player than Drew? No, but let’s not just throw it aside like it’s not some impressive accomplishment. 

His personality and stardom has put this franchise in the national spotlight like it never was before. This franchise is no longer known for the Rae carruth murder or the Fred lane murder or that team who had that one underdog run in 2003. You couldn’t walk into a sporting good store in NYC and find Julius Peppers or Steve Smith jerseys being sold. You couldn’t walk down the streets of NYC and find a kid wearing a Jake Delhomme jersey. With Cam, that all changed. When you think of the Carolina Panthers, you think Cam Newton.

Lets also not forget he was the Quarterback of the team that won 3 straight NFC South division titles. Before that, not one franchise won back to back division titles. In the 16 years before Cam, the Panthers had been to the playoffs 4 times. In the 8 years with Cam, they have been to the playoffs 4 times. 

So yes, Cam Newton has elevated this franchise to a status they’ve never been before both on and off the field. To say otherwise is not just foolish l, but flat out stupid and wrong.

Cam has been a star for sure, but let's not pretend that he's been the only star of the franchise. 

This team has had some of the greats in the sport and some notable names in the sport, though admittedly some came here towards the end of their careers. Pep is still the top Panther, and 89 kept the Panthers relevant throughout his storied career. 

I have been a staunch Cam supporter since before he set foot as a pro, so you really can't tell me anything that I don't know. He will get into the Hall of Honor, but he needs to raise his game a couple of notches if he wants to be revered across the league like the likes of Brees, Peppers or Smitty.

You really don't see a difference between Jake Delhomme and that list?  Thats a shame.  Jake was a moment.  Something you just had to experience.  Yes, both good Jake and bad Jake.  The QB always gets both too much credit and too much blame.  His entrance to the Hall doesn't cheapen it or lower the bar.

Well, that's interesting. You're telling me that Jake was leaps and bounds ahead of Muhammad, Johnson, Hoover and Morgan at their respective positions and what they meant to this franchise? Like you said, the QB gets too much credit. I can respect it though. It's not as hard of a sell as essentially telling me that Cam Newton is the only reason the Panthers are on the map (like they weren't pre-Cam).

You’re being extremely naive if you don’t think a majority of people outside of the Carolinas don’t associate the panthers with Cam Newton. Julius Peppers is the best player in franchise history. Cam Newton is the biggest and most relevant star in franchise history.

    • anyone who takes your calls for "community policing" seriously after seeing your reaction to that video and the rappin' cop's video is a rube. you don't belong here. you're not here in good faith. you're PR. i want to know why abusers are drawn to the profession and not weeded out. it's almost as if they have traits desirable to the position  it's literally best practice to assume so until proven otherwise. they have done nothing to curb the spread within their departments. it's almost as if they have traits desirable to the position  philadelphia, la, ny, chicago, baltimore, cleveland, columbus, st louis, phoenix, milwaukee, boston, etc it's everywhere. your attempts to diminish that won't go unnoticed. certainly not bad enough to compel you to do anything about it. best we've gotten is a rappin' cop who was shortly after exposed. you want "communication" and "community policing" up until it's time to blame a black victim for yet another cop's aggression. you don't have any answers that acknowledge the uh very obvious role police play in these cases. you're here to run cover for bad cops. the end.
    • Because I was addressing one specific clip here to try to understand what the issue with it was from your perspective because it seemed pretty cut and dry on the side of not being unreasonable. And you still haven't spoken on that.  Yeah, domestic violence sucks. Yeah, domestic violence by cops sucks. What the hell do you want there? Yeah, white supremacists suck. So now all cops are presumed to be white supremacists? Or cops are presumed to be spouse abusers? Philly has always been a hell hole, why are you shocked there?  Weird how despite the fact that I can agree when things are bad while not hating every cop because I realize individuals are responsible for their own actions, you seem to think I support those idiots. Of course, admitting that would show that you're actually the problem here but whatever.
    • how often do you get accused of being "very intelligent" officer? do you feel like there's a lot of brain power in your department?   studies show that police beat their partners at a rate 2-4x that of the national average. research conducted by the fbi revealed a concerted effort by white supremacists to infiltrate the police nationwide. in just the last week 72 cops in philadelphia alone were recently put on "administrative leave" after it was revealed that they were too stupid to lock down their social media accounts where they shared their racist memes. weird how despite those very real stories existing you were more concerned with your made up "research." who is walking around what here? people like you exist to deny brutality up to the point where it is completely undeniable. you then offer a meaningless "yeah that was bad" before moving on to your next defense. but you don't walk around the problem. how could you when you so clearly are the problem?
