I am already sick and tired of being sick and tired. Can we trade Jeff Davidson? And who wrote an article even considering trading Stevie Franchise? He is all that we have idiots. JUST GET HIM THE BALL!! Andre Johnson is the only playmaker on his team and he gets 1500 yards every season. (and they dont even have a run game).

But then again I guess they do have a QB. Jimmy will be fine, he just needs time

In the past three things, Scott Fowler and I have agreed on two things, one of them being that Fox needs to stick with Clausen.

This team has reached the point of not return by benching Moore and starting Clausen. If Fox were to now make a switch again, both psyches would be damaged. Giving the starting role right back to Moore wouldn't necessarily repair any damage that might have already been done. In addition, taking the job away from Clausen right after one start would damage his.

SYRPIS, rookie quarterbacks always suck, i.e. Ryan and Flacco. You either have it or you don't. Clausen does not have the arm to play in this league.

The question is why does this owner think he is to good to address the status of this team? Even if he said, "we had to get younger and we knew we would take our lumps. I will not accept this, nor will the fans. Things get must get better from this point forward." Instead we have gotten nothing. Why? He has no reason to say anything. He has already got the PSL owners by the n*ts. If they don't buy tickets, they lose the PSL. It is legal extortion.

Also, SYRPIS why do you think John Fox is so good? Is it the 3 winning seasons in 9 years?

Richardson is the chief proponent of the lockout, which is the ultimate skrew the fans idea and tell them it's for their own good. The players are somewhat greedy, but the owners take the cake. A player has a limited time to earn all he can, owners make the money year after year after year. Richardson has already gutted the payroll, and not filled it back up. Smith is going to get hurt playing with this team, as the too-obvious target. You might as well trade them all, Richardson has become the guy who forgot what got him there, and is now just another crazy, greedy, stereotypical NFL owner. I can't wait for threats to move the team if no new stadium, they are just a few years away. If they have a lockout, they can have it all, cause I, and I hope thousands of others, are done at that point.

Richardson encouraged the other owners to sign the current CBA what 2 years ago? Now he curses at the owners and says that the owners must take back the league and shove a new CBA down their throats. Where did this new heart he has come from? He has turned in Walmart, Save Money, Live Better JerryMart.

Jeff Davidson must go. Only a pure idiot would actively try to NOT put the ball in the team's playmakers hands. Steve needs looks. Goodson is playing a little too much. Where are the deep balls?

@Steven. Clausen absolutely has the arm strength to play in NFL. I was at the game yesterday and was surprised at the zip he put on the ball. Quick release, hard straight balls. And the 45 yard pass to Lafell was perfect. Clausen is going to be very good QB just not this year.

Is every one as excited as I am that we gave up the 33-35 pick in the 2011 draft for Armanit "I not good enough to get on field on the worst team in the NFL" Edwards?

Jeff Davidson married Jerry Richardson's daughter after Jake left her.

Posted by: JAY | Sep 27, 2010 11:52:04 AM

Darrin Gantt said last year that Davidson would make a good head coach.

Posted by: JAY | Sep 27, 2010 11:53:03 AM

If Jerry wants to show appreciation for his 2 valuable players he should:

Trade John Kasay to New Orleans

Trade Steve Smith to the Vikings

We could then watch them be successful with teams that have a clue.

It's quite sad to see all these "fans" slamming the owner. We have a young team, what did you expect? It doesn't matter what the coach or owner does, you will continue to criticize them no matter what. Clausen will make his mistakes, but he will be a good QB in the NFL. You've seen him start one game and yet you're already writing him off as a bust. How about you worry about the real bust...Dwayne Jarrett? You can claim all you want that he just needs playing time, but he's had more than enough time to prove himself and still has not. I'd rather see the rookies get time to develope into potential future stars than to stick with a player we drafted four years ago who still lacks any big plays. The true fans will stick with the team, win or lose. Saying you're done with the team is ridiculous. Go jump on the bandwagon with another team if that's the case. Go Panthers!

Darin/Joe/Charlotte Observer:
The Panthers played the Bengals, not the Bucs. Are you paying attention? Does anyone edit this stuff?
