CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson said Wednesday he never considered firing coach John Fox and general manager Marty Hurney, and is convinced the duo can put the struggling franchise back in the playoffs.

In a rare meeting with reporters, Richardson confirmed the two men will return next season, but suggested the team will make many personnel moves after consecutive non-winning seasons.

"I asked them what they thought they wanted our football team to look like," Richardson said. "They told me and I said it's real important that we all agree. We agreed."

Richardson said the plan involves emulating the hard-nosed style of the Pittsburgh Steelers.

"You know how I feel about the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Rooney family," Richardson said. "I would like for the Carolina Panthers and our team, and our work, and the way we operate our team, to emulate the Pittsburgh Steelers -- and John and Marty know that."

The Rooney's are the most respected owners in the league hands down. When they speak people listen, they've been around for decades, they stay true to their values and they don't buck the system that has gotten them to where they are today.

that being said Carolina is more than welcome to have our special teams, offensive line, and backup defensive lineman if they like :lol:

This could go on and on with all of our complaints but obviously only the fans notice the flaws and like to point them out :bigthumb: All things aside the Steelers do run a class act organization that many other franchises want to model after.
