OK, I know we really didn't shake things up too much after only the 2nd losing season for our Panthers in recent PFL history, and some of the changes that have made could be seen as questionable. And yes, I've heard my nickname of "Peppy Le [expletive] Pe-[expletive]Yew" from the Carolina faithful. Here is my post-draft State of the Panthers address to try to answer some of the concerns of our phenomenal fans, and hopefully I can talk them off of the edge a bit.

The transition into the new regime started out a little shaky. I brought in a radically different set of playbooks and philosophies that took a while to set in. The defense took a while to settle into the hybrid 3/4-4/3 defense, but when they did they were a force to be reckoned with (except for the week 16 game against the Saints). When the offense played consistently as a team and didn't cough the ball up, they were like a fine-tuned machine. We confounded defenses but shot ourselves in the foot with complacent mental lapses. I said last season, and still have the conviction, that we have a great team, therefore we didn't make very many moves. We did need to make a few unpopular moves though.

We got a steal with John Spence at the 9th overall pick. His athleticism is off the charts. He has to work on his accuracy, but we were fortunate that he was available. Is this a knock on Jimmy Clausen? Not at all. He is a great quarterback that, when he was on his game, was as good as a quarterback can be. Unfortunately, when he struggled, he struggled. He is still a great quarterback that has adapted to the unconventional offense that he is in and he'll be a great mentor to his eventual successor. A lot of times, the fate of the game was, unfairly, placed on Jimmy's shoulders. The run support wasn't very consistent. Which leads to the only real shake-up that we did in the off-season. The offensive backfield.

Don't get me wrong, Lomas Anderson, Tony Fiammetta, and John Stafford are good backs that have done some good things for our franchise. But they fumbled last season. A lot. At very inconvenient times. Not entirely their fault really, They, as well, were put outside of their comfort zones. I have no doubt that they will perform well for the team that they respectively land in, but I would be remiss as a GM if I didn't make drastic changes in our weakest area. We like the athleticism and versatility of last season's 5th round pick, Alfred Blue as our third-down back, and we think that John Fisher and Caz Palmer will fit in nicely with the way we play football.

Our next weakest spot was the only other place that we made changes, the defensive backfield. While we did well on reacting to plays and intercepting the ball, we gave up way too many catches. Although the off-season changes that we made were basically cosmetic (Cameron Norton deserved the opportunity to start, and we got a beast of a player for his replacement to back up Eric Reed; and we brought in a solid veteran backup to replace an unproved newbie), there is a lot of talent in the backfield and better planning on coverage schemes will hopefully be the solution.

Do we have great players in place? Absolutely. Was it a disappointing season in 2014? Most definitely. We didn't bring in a whole lot of new faces because we have a talented group of players that have the desire to succeed. We're very excited about the new talent that we have and are ready to take our place at the top of the PFL.

That is some amazing insight into the PFL Panthers and their turnaround project. I personally love to see new coaches come in and make those tough decisions that you talked about. I think that the NFC South is a particularly wide open division and could see a dogfight between owners for who takes the division title each year. Good luck to you and I am sure we will all be anxiously watching that top ten 1st round draft pick quarterback to see if he can crack the starting line up.
