Season-ending win leaves Carolina more questions

There are 2 comments on the The State story from Dec 30, 2007, titled Season-ending win leaves Carolina more questions. In it, The State reports that:

“If it goes one way, I'll cherish the moments. If it goes another way, then we'll have more to share. I don't want to make a decision when I'm tired because I know, right now, I'm tired.”

TAMPA, Fla. -- Some will leave. Some will stay. But the question is which Carolina Panthers will go in which direction.

Quarterback Vinny Testaverde said farewell and defensive end Mike Rucker continued to make it sound like he could follow the retirement path before long. But coach John Fox and general manager Marty Hurney were making it sound like they were not going anywhere.

'Well, yesterday I was the UCLA head coach,' Fox said. 'Today, I heard I was the Miami head coach. Right now I can tell you I'm the Carolina head coach. Other than some of the speculation by (the media), I've never thought anything different.' Read more

I hope the Panthers will go in another direction with the defense. Chris Collingsworth got it right when he made fun of the Panthers passive, non aggressive, bend but don't break defensive style. It is no wonder we were last in sacks and created few turnovers. In the NFL, the team that puts the most pressure on the opposing quarterback usually wins. Please get a new Defensive coordinator and bring some life and excitment back to the D! P.S. Beason is awesome.
