John Fox is a great coach. this team fights every though they are out of the playoffs. he deserves to be the coach of this team and im glad we have him! GO PANTHERS!

Coach Fox DOES NOT deserve to be here next year. If Jake hadn't hurt his finger, Fox would still be saying "Jake gives us the best chance to win", and we'd still be losing. If he was smart, he would have given Moore the opportunity earlier, and we'd be in the playoffs.

Is it possible that the way Matt Moore has turned things around for the offense and taken so much pressure off the Defense that he has made it enjoyable enough that Peppers will sign long term with the Panthers?

Has Ron Meeks created the opportunity that Julius Peppers was looking for when he said he wants to be the best he can be?

will you guys have the guts to corner John Fox on why he stuck with Jake so long? when he responds with his pat answer will you push him on why he thought Matt Moore was not a choice replacement?

Now that we are able to see the offense in rhythm is Jeff Davidson a good fit for the Panthers?
Posted by: cheerman23 | Dec 27, 2009 4:02:35 PM
It looks like Matt Moore is earning his chance. Will definately take the pressure off the Panthers when the draft comes up. Panthers need to move up in Sports Illustrated power rankings next week.

Who would you rather bone?...Meg Ryan or Jack Nicholson?............

After 3 solid performances, is Matt Moore the QB for the longterm?
Posted by: Ray | Dec 27, 2009 4:07:08 PM
Hi guys, knowing Fox's and Richardson's faith in Delhomme despite his struggles this season, if Matt Moore plays this well and we win next week, do you think Jake will start next year? Right now, I've read that Matt will still be in "competition" for the starting job next year, but I feel as if that's just the same thing as saying Jake will start next year.

LOL! Guys has a NFL team ever had two 1000 yard rushers and not make the playoffs? Write a story about that.

Is it really as simple as not throwing the ball to the other team 18 times that gives this team a chance to man handle just about any other team in the league?
Posted by: Scott | Dec 27, 2009 4:18:25 PM
It seems like what I've thought for the longest this year is true; this team is missing pieces, but not enough to change the entire puzzle. What in your mind is the biggest change/addition Carolina needs to make? In your opinion WILL or SHOULD any of Smitty/DeAngelo/J-Stew be traded for picks?
Posted by: Phillip | Dec 27, 2009 4:19:39 PM
Who has more to gain from keeping a billboard "Raging Cajun" around, despite his age, injury status and poor performances...
an owner that recently bought Bojangles or a head coach that has been complaining about the QB play for a couple of seasons, despite being labled TOO TIGHT-LIPPED by you guys??

Will we resign Moore? Also is Stewart OK?
Posted by: Aaron | Dec 27, 2009 4:29:12 PM
Yo, Nick, we're talking football here.
Posted by: nasty704 | Dec 27, 2009 4:31:44 PM
Here is an even more importan question: why are you guys the only hype machine that has been reporting that Fox's job is in jeapordy for the past two seasons (three if you include what Greenpants Fowler has been writing) and every other analyst is reporting what a good coach he is? More to the point, thanks to you and your drone groupies, how badly do you feel that you have undermined him, especially in lieu of these latest victories?
Posted by: SYRPIS | Dec 27, 2009 4:32:35 PM
Please provide an update on Steve Smiths' injury. Is he done for the season?
Posted by: Glo | Dec 27, 2009 4:34:20 PM
Scott, how has the way Matt Moore has played affected the Panthers' offseason plans? Do you think they will still draft a QB with a high pick or now turn their focus towards a receiving threat in this deep class?
Posted by: Reid | Dec 27, 2009 4:39:38 PM
This is not a question, its a fact! If Matt Moore does not start at QB next year, you can bet your car tires he's gone, and We better hope he doesn't end up in our division. If we think every GM in the league doesn't have an eye on him after the show he's been puttin on, well then we don't deserve a big league QB!!!!!
Posted by: stork302 | Dec 27, 2009 4:41:19 PM
Is it me, or does this entire team play with more purpose now that Moore is under center?
Posted by: dogear | Dec 27, 2009 4:51:01 PM
Do the guys at the Observer feel that Moore's success just shows Fox used poor judugement early on....which likely cost Carolina the playoffs? It's not like Moore hadn't shown prior he could come in and play well against good teams before this season starter (he was 2-1 in very good games against 3 playoff teams in 07).

What's the severity of Steve Smith's injury?
Posted by: JM | Dec 27, 2009 4:56:31 PM
I see John Fox finally let the Offensive and Defensive Coordinators finally do their job and not interfere in the play calling.
Posted by: dew | Dec 27, 2009 5:05:58 PM
The Panthers need to re-sign Peppers if at all possible next year and switch to the 3-4 defense. Move Everette Brown to Left DE. Having Brown, Thomas Davis, Beason, and Peppers as the 4 in the middle in a 3-4 would be a killer defense.
