If he's healthy you keep him. Kyle is the backup. JR understood that the NFL may not "favor" his team to be a "winner" so he would follow the Steelers model to build a contending franchise. He did that. The worst thing Tepper could do is deviate from that path.
He may have to figure out the nuances of being a favored owner/franchise from Krafty Kraft. JR wasn't the NFL's political superstar nor was he the officials friend but the Panthers have been knocking on that door. It opens and slams in your face sometimes but at least you have a good/great at times football team and nobody can take those memories away.
I'm very interested in the future but not total destruction for the sake of whimsy.
