The anti-war youth movement of the 1960s had as one of its rallying cries: "Don't Trust Anyone Over 30!"
The Panthers have seemingly co-opted that still-popular slogan (shown above on a magnet available at a website called cafepress.com) for their 2010 team.
As my colleague Darin Gantt notes in this story, the Panthers have only five players 30 or over on the roster as the 2010 training camp begins. They are OT Jordan Gross, K John Kasay (the only one over 40), P Jason Baker, WR Steve Smith and DE Tyler Brayton.
Wow -- talk about going young and cheap. Here's my preview of the 2010 camp -- I think it's going to be a really difficult one for those players remaining. Coach John Fox will want to impose his stamp upon all these new players and also -- given the fact he only has a year left on his contract and may well be coaching somewhere else in 2011 -- he doesn't want to go out with a whimper.
