It is what it is I guess! Maybe they'll allow Matt Moore to start and get Smitty some help in the off season.

Re: Fox and his staff.......

Should this be true...there is much merit for such. there is some tweeking and improving to be done here and there but it not as if this team "as is" is like the teams in TB, St.L, Cle, etc., a couple 2-3 yrs away and 5-6 players away as well. The Panther have a solid roster which can be improved upon with a player or two. Sumtimes when a new HC comes in there is a one step forward two steps back ward transitional period that can take place...as close as this current team is...why take such a risk.

Re: Fox and his staff.......

Matt Moore has brought a much needed breath of fresh air. Well said cornhusker. I agree. If Fox wouldn't be so stubborn and just give others a chance things could be a whole different. Hind sight is 20/20 but I just wonder where we would be if Moore was allowed to play a lot sooner. I'm hoping D.J. gets 1 final shot to play this week against the Saints. Moore might allow him to show a sign of life.....Who knows?

Re: Fox and his staff.......

I've never been one to get on the FireFox bandwagon, even though I've posted on threads that hosted talks about it. I think we're seeing now that Fox and Co. have had a stacked deck (injury-wise), and just tried to be a little too loyal to Jake. Can you really blame him, though, for sticking by the guy that got him to the Big Game in his second season as HC? I don't want a new coach, I just want Fox's philosophy of great D, a smashmouth running game, and the playaction pass to come to fruition with the right personnel. I think we truly are only a few pieces away from another Superbowl run. Draft a #2 WR for Moore, a quality backup QB with vet experience (I'm thinking Sage Rosenfels) get Pep re-signed, get younger at DT, and bring in a return specialist. I think those are the pieces necessary.

Re: Fox and his staff.......

I don't see why yall think Jake will not be the starter next season, remember, "Jake Delhomme gives us the best chance to win." - John Fox

If Jakes finger didn't get broke while staring into the stands mindlessly lobbing the ball down the field to no one at all against the Jets we wouldn't even know what we had in Moore.

Why?

John Fox is loyal and protective even if it costs the team a season and him a job.

Glad to know 8 - 8 is satisfactory,  should take more excellence in coaching to go 8 - 8 next year with Jake starting but it is entirely possible.

news flash, this guy is every bit as night and day as Jake is.

We are close to the offseason, is that what you meant?
