The Panthers close out the season with two road games meaning this Sunday's contest against the Cardinals is most likely John Fox's last home game as Head Coach. By many measures John Fox has had a nice run in Carolina. He took them from 1-15 to the Super Bowl in two seasons. He's been to the NFC Championship one of other time and never, until this season, won less than 7 games in a season. But it seems that ever since that playoff game against these Cardinals this team has been on a painful decline.
So just how will Panther fans treat Fox this Sunday? I'm sure we'll see a number of signs directed at Fox. I would assume security won't let anything too crass in the gate so most of the signs should be of the appreciative sort. But what about things security can't control? Will they applaud? Will they boo? Chant? Will they get ugly?
When asked if this season was the most disappointing of his career:
Given that fact, Fox called it "a fair assessment" that his final year with the Panthers will go down as the most disappointing of his career.
Of course its fair. After all, you are what your record says you are!
If I were going to the game myself I would give the guy a standing O...I can't fault him too much for the state of the franchise. He was dealt a tough hand this past offseason and has held his head high.
"I think the staff, the players here and myself included I think we’ve done absolutely the best job we could possibly do. I will be able to look myself in the mirror when I walk away from here."
I'm not saying he didn't make some mistakes but overall he built some history here.
