    A win or even a decent game and close loss would go a long ways with fans, Glazers, players, etc that Lovie is on the right track. I expect we will get thumped though. Expect many mistakes, penalties, bad clock management, etc. It hasn’t changed in 15 games so no reason to think it will now. Other than a good draft this last year I can think of many positives for him. If Koetter was going to leave for a head coaching job they would be foolish not to offer him the job and send Lovie packing. Who would hurt us more losing Lovie or Koetter? Easy answer to that. Anyways I’ve heard the arguments for giving Lovie another year. Stability. Etc. It’s hard to argue that stability wouldn’t be good for Winston, but I just don’t know about Lovie. All signs point to sub par results continuing IMO.

      Agreed, we need to hold on to Koetter at all costs! Lovie hasn’t done much to show he is a valuable HC or even DC. The Glazers should force him to relinquish his defensive control and let Frazier do his job. At this point we’re already looking toward FA and the draft. Licht has proven he is capable of finding quality players and hopefully that will continue for us on defense this offseason

    As for this game, I’m torn. I’d love to see us beat the Panthers and I think it would go a long way in building confidence in this young team. I’m also thinking we may be better off losing to gain some ground in the draft though

    Yea losing would help our draft, but I just hate the Panthers! I do think beating the best record NFC team does mean something and would carry something positive into next year. I do believe in momentum and stopping the losing culture here.

    Like last year, we long-suffering fans are ready to close the book on another losing season. As Scott alluded, this is a game to watch the attitudes as much as the physical play. Scott is right on point with how this team responds to the neighborhood bully being the most important aspect of this game. As Sapp often said, “The eye in the sky don’t lie.” That goes for the coaching staff too. We’re all watching you Lovie. Will you let “Riverboat Ron” turn you into
    “Lifeboat Lovie” prompting the Glazers to set you adrift from this sinking “Ship of Fools” or will you show them and us that we are back on course, full speed ahead to 2016?

      Good post Scubog; I hope this happens. I also am hoping Lovie will go back to his basement and rethink his defensive game plans for next season if he stays. I’m all for a win as it might help soften my thoughts of Lovie being here another year. If we lose he should go. Carolina has a lot of starting player injury’s that are Inactive especially on their Offense today.
