I wrote my column today about 4 quick fixes for the Panthers. Now don't misunderstand -- this isn't a long-term solution. And it pre-supposes that Carolina won't be firing coach John Fox or benching QB Jake Delhomme anytime soon (although I advocated Delhomme being benched, at least temporarily, following the Dallas game).
These aren't about overhauling the car with a new engine; this is about making enough repairs to at least get it back on the road at all. The short version of the column: More DeAngelo, more 8-man fronts on defense, getting Jason Baker to punt the ball out of bounds on every play -- stuff like that.
