I said it once...

and I will say it again, this team is A LOT like the Florida Marlins. The Panthers and Marlins are similar in many ways:

~They both have a good farm system and some good young talent.

~The Marlins brought in guys like Redman, Pudge, Harris, Conine, etc., vets that can come in and add skill and leadership to a young, talented team. IMO, Samuelson, Messier, Odelyn are good pickups, and I think they can contribute the way the Marlins pickups did.

~Jeff Torborb, albeit the opposite in personalities with Keenan, was fired cause he couldnt get the Marlins to play the way they are capable of. In comes McKeon, gets them to believe in themselves and each other, and at the end came a WS championship. Here, Keenan gets fired, , and Dudley steps in as coach. This team has the talent, IMO, to make this season magical. What they need to do is take a page from the Marlins. Play for the logo on the chest, play for the guy beside you, believe in each other and great things can happen. A Marlin player made a comment after one of the WS game wins, saying, not trying to disrespect anyone, they dont care about the fans, or the media, or anyone outside of the clubhouse when they step on the field. They play for each other because they are a family.

IMO, we have playoff caliber team here, and the biggest step to take us to the playoffs just happened today.
