This chart shows how bad the Panthers' future is (WARNING: WILL MAKE YOU WANT TO ROPE)

The point of the composite score is how difficult flipping that overnight would be.  We have very little offseason flexibility. Sure we could mortgage the future to increase draft capital this year, work out some trades to offload players etc... But that's hard to do. We have less room to make moves than many other teams...

A single trade down and a couple contract restructures/cuts and we move upward right. the data doesn’t support future state, it only supports current state.

That x-axis seems kinda dumb unless you think a 2nd and 3rd round pick are worth ~$80M in cap space.

According to this chart the Saints are considered to have more "resources" when in reality the difference between the Panthers and Saints is one team having a 2nd and 3rd round pick as well as ~$80M less cap space.

And we get a bunch of cap space after this year. Backload a couple of contracts, draft nothing but online this year, and the future starts looking better.

Great to see see someone on the Huddle have a positive take and outlook. This place is getting down right depressing to view.

Current state does enable same offseason future state flexibility tho. We can recover some ground but the point is how far below other teams in our same wins situation we are.  Even the scenario you describe doesn't move us very far probably because I suspect it's weighting our first rounder based on where it is, and that is the kind of move other teams could make too.

I don't think this is a figure that says "be pessimistic about 2022 no matter what," but it does suggest what we already know just from limited cap space and missing our 2nd and 3rd rounders because we traded for rehab projects.  Oh well.

I agree 2023 looks brighter than 2022 right now.  But we have to hope Rhule and Fitt are being handicapped on what future assets they can trade, or the future gets a lot dimmer.

And this is precisely why I don’t think Rhule was canned this year. We’re not going to attract any decent coach with that outlook. 

I’ll keep repeating this… 

Do you think allowing Rhule to stay another season will in any way make the team more attractive NEXT year?  Do you think Rhule is just going to idly sit on his hands and allow future resources he can use NOW to remain untouched?  Or do you think he’ll use whatever resources he can, present and future, to try to save his own fat neck?

This is the worst part about keeping him. I can take another losing season, but, with no reward in the draft, we're screwed.
