    Bill Cowher

    Thank you jgunn. I stopped posting for awhile when I realized I was becoming one of those folks who liked to argue intently over the most irrelevant thing. I actually found myself irritated with faceless characters who have no real connection to my life whatsoever. That was out of character for me and I didn't like it. I don't mind "talking smack", but I don't want it to be personal with the impersonal. I appreciate your calm demeanor on here.

    More like "never rans". Very disappointing news. Hey hubie, good to see you back posting. I remember you from last year - welcome back!

    It appears the Panthers are content with being "also rans".

    ^Hank Stram would work! However, my personal favorite would be Vince Lombardi. On a serious note, I'd like to see Bill Cowher in Charlotte if they decide to make a coaching change.

    It works the same way in the NHL:-) These pro teams are the ultimate recyclers.

    Gruden would fit well at Carolina.

  • thomliquid Dec 23, 2009

    Cowher would be a good choice but lets not forget that there may not be a coaching change especially if Moore continues to show progress. The Panthers are in need of another deep threat receiver and also a new offensive Cord. I don't understand why Gruden's name is coming up. Remember he won the super bowl with Tony Dungy's Players before he was fired.

    There may be some quality QB's available in the 2010 draft in the later rounds, but with the win now mentality the panthers may need to depend on free agency to fill role or even a possible trade.

    FOX!!!

  • The Dire_Wolf Dec 22, 2009

    Regardless of who is coach next year, the panthers should be an atractive job when you consider the pieces they have in place.

  • Lost and Loaded Dec 22, 2009

    Cowher or Herm Edwards, both are proven winners and demand quality players from the front office. Fox has to go - I think he is a good coach who at times wastes offensive and defensive talent with rigid gameplans. Far too often I have watched the Panthers come roaring out with the offense clicking only to see the jets turned off whenever a slight lead was established. Completely frustrating to see such conservative play calling in games that were far from over. Other times I have seen the offense sputtering yet no changes or adjustments are made till the game is virtually over. A team doesn't have to spend its way to victory but it has to be allowed and encouraged to play to its potential at all times.

    That's because Fox was a good coach then. Apparently, he has forgotten how to do it this year. So some other former coach, who had forgotten how to coach with his last team, can come to Charlotte and regain his coaching memory. I believe that's how it works.

  • Optimyst Dec 22, 2009

    An interesting stat...

    11 head coaches who have won a super bowl have gone on to coach one or more other teams later in their career. How many have won a super bowl with a second team? Zero.

    Gruden had a pretty good team in Oakland. Problem the Panthers have is Hurney won't pull the trigger in time to get Cowher or Gruden. If they are going to make a change they need to swing the ax soon, like next week.

    I am not a Panthers fan, but I can't understand why everyone is so willing to let Fox go. How soon everyone forgets that they were 12-4 and won the NFC South a season ago.

  • davidroysterjr Dec 21, 2009

    Bill Cowher is the man in my book. He has a ring to prove it. His family is in Raleigh and he would be close to home. Maybe he could pull the plug oon Jake, cause Fox does not have the guts to. Fox can crawl into a hole a far as I'm concerned.

    What in the heII does Roy have to do with the NFL. Dude get over the fact that there is , and has been a new sheriff in town. His name aint Kay.

    Gruden is a very good coach, but he (like Roy) inherited a great team and system. He can thank Dungy for that Superbowl.

    I agree that Fox is great, other than his hanging on to Delhomme for far too long. He really is a good coach.

    How come nobody has mentioned Brian Billick he did a good job at Baltimore and won a Super Bowl not a big offense person but his defese was stellar and Peppers would probably like him. I like Cowher and Gruden but I think it took Cowher an awful long time to get the Steelers there and Gruden won a Supper Bowl and not much else.

    Bowden needed to retire five years ago.

  • jeremyshaner2 Dec 13, 2009

    Gruden, but I think he's happy at ESPN. The Vikings Defensive Coordinator is likely to be on the market as well. As for QB, I think they should continue to develop Moore, but make a trade for a veteran or draft one of the better QBs in this year's draft. They could always trade Peppers or Smith for the first round pick(s) they lost last year.

    The only other thing I insist on is we get rid of those pansy azz sparkly helmets..... I think the Panthers and Tampa are the only teams in the league that have someone bedazzle their helmets. It looks awful. It screams 'expansion franchise'...

    Bill Cowher would be a great choice. The next guy will get some points for just not being John Fox. Delhomme must have pictures or something, Fox just can't seem to see that with him you are losing.

  • jayparks0228 Dec 13, 2009

    So Jerry Richardson wants to be like the Steelers. A little advice on that, don't be like somebody, be better than them. I remember my Redskins saying they wanted to be like Dallas and I was screaming, don't be like Dallas, beat them and be better. Turned out to be a huge mistake and we still haven't recovered. So all you Panther fans should try to get in Richardson's ear. Look at Pittsburgh now. 6 and 7. Losers of 5 straight.

    I think it should be someone from this forum. After all, we clearly know how a team should be run, and we say so on a regular basis. And unlike the people currently employed in the NFL, we don't suddenly go from being geniuses to idiots. I mean, how hard can it be?

  • gopack1990 Nov 30, 2009

    Bill Cowher its the perfect fit

  • VT1994Hokie Nov 10, 2009

    I stated the last time this one came up is that John Gruden is the best out there. He will stay. Cowher is doing well. Will he stay for the duration that it takes to get this thing back? Or, is he waiting on the NCSU job?
