Every time after the Super Bowl....

Recommended Posts

After every Super Bowl, I sit and watch the victorious team celebrate and wonder....will I ever see the Panthers win a championship? Every season I get a year older and a year closer to death. And the chances to see my favorite team since childhood finally win the Super Bowl get smaller and smaller.

There are franchises like the Lions, that have existed since the Super Bowl began, that have never even made it to the big game. And their fans probably wonder the same thing. So maybe I should just be happy I’ve at least been able to see my team play in the Super Bowl at all?

Maybe it’s being a cat team. Especially a black cat team. The cat teams are all really sad (two of which have never even been to the Super Bowl). All cat teams have overall losing records and are full of misery. Maybe it’s time to have a non-animal related mascot? I dunno, I just always get a little depressed after the Super Bowl.

Cheer up , bud.

Next month, I'll be an octogenarian, and I ain't giving up on my Panthers!  Live life to the fullest, and enjoy the whole ride, not just the accelerations.

How many games did the Chiefs win last year?  4?

Our time will come...

We're not the Patriots, but we've been to 2 Super Bowls that we honestly should have won, and were very close to winning, in the past 20 years.

That's better than about half the teams in the NFL.

The team that I root for in the NBA has never been to a championship, ever, spanning more than a half century.

We have a new owner who is very committed to winning and will outspend anyone (although I hate who he chose for a coach, I still have some level of faith he will be a good long term owner).

Not that bad to be a Panthers fan.

I can't imagine how few fugs I'll give when I get to be your age. Since childhood I haven't had a single one to spare and with every passing year I somehow find I have fewer and fewer.

The next couple of years are probably going to be kind of unpleasant to watch.

After that, who knows?

Chiefs didn’t become consistent winners till 2013 and it took that long for them to win a title. A lot goes into a season but the biggest thing was getting them a coach that can be consistent.

Also people saying we are in tank mode and won’t do anything for a while... a FIRST YEAR REID took a 2-14 team to the playoffs so you never know where it might end up.

Its a process you have to trust it.

I can honestly say that for me, it didn't even take a Super Bowl.

For the past couple of seasons, several times while watching non-Panther games, I've found myself asking the question "Why aren't we as good as these teams?" There were objective, concrete answers to that question but I wasn't really looking for them. It was more just a frustrated rhetorical than anything else.

As far as the future, Rivera being gone helps (Hurney being gone would help even more). In his place we've got a coach with very little NFL experience and a staff that doesn't boast much more, but at least there's hope.

If nothing else, perhaps it's a positive to say that we go into next year knowing that if we're making mistakes, at least they'll be new ones. I was really tired of seeing the old ones over and over again, and I doubt I'm the only one to say that.

That was 49ers last season.  Their season was destroyed by injuries too.  They were the best NFC team this season, just owning everyone all season and they were one quarter short of winning it all.  They have great offensive line which we don’t and their defense is very good unlike ours.

the more depressing part to me is those teams are just a lot better than we are.   2015 was the worst year of nfl football i've seen in my life.  i don't want that to have to happen again for us to have a shot.  now there are some teams that are going to be good for a while.  it is kind of depressing because of marty.  if we had a diff gm i could have some real hope that we'll build  a whole team.  the bright spot is hopefully we've got folks in place who will get the team to play their hearts out.
