so what did the last ~20 years of panthers football feel like to you


Recommended Posts

asking because for me it felt like being on a trireme led by a captain that embarks on a voyage that should take only 3 years to reach its destination, and ends up dicking around so much that by the time you dock at ithaca, the steamships are already dominating the mediterranean sea.

we sat through a 20 year period of the same dude running the offseason the same way for about 15 of those years, coaches that overstay their welcome, players that stick like glue, some of them so bad that being a starter for ten games feels like ages. and it makes me think about the passage of time compared with everything else going on. sometimes i have to remind myself that some 2012 panthers bullshit was 9ish years ago and not 3. things i had going on back then were so much different.

i know we’re just finally going beyond jerry richardson’s reign of terror and all of the baggage is finally gone but ffs...

A blind date where you've at least talked on the phone, hit it off, and then you meet in person.... :Eyes_Emoji_42x42:  Let's just say the anticipation was a let down.   

The same goes with the Panthers nearly every year.

Curious how you changed your behavior and support (or lack thereof) over those 20 years?

Two Superbowl appearances.

More success than a whole lot of franchises. 

Lots of friends made. 

Lots of really great memories.

 

I'd do it again.

I feel like the Carolina Panthers have wasted talent for 20 years. I feel like they never had a coaching staff that could take advantage of the talent on the roster. So many bone-headed moves made by the coaching staff that just left me scratching my head... To sum it up best.... I believe it was a playoff game against Arizona in which Jake Delhomme threw five interceptions and one fumble... I do remember it was on January 10th of a year far removed. THAT game describes the Panthers best.... Just because you are given opportunities does NOT mean that you will find success. That right there is the Panthers... Given opportunities but not success.  https://www.nfl.com/news/delhomme-dooms-panthers-with-six-turnovers-09000d5d80e07124

Everyone complains, but in reality we are in the top half of the league in Superbowl appearances in the last 20 years

Especially relative to other expansion teams first 20 years in the league. Look at the early history of the Jaguars, Texans, Seahawks, Revived Browns,  etc. etc. It's easy to complain but we're one of the most successful expansion teams in NFL history when you look at the first 20-25 years of their existences.
