Did you see how many times Culpepper was sacked today? Haha at least Carr can't set the record again this year

The Panthers had finished 7-9 in 2000, and were looking to return to the form they had in 1996, when they were one game away from the Super Bowl. And the 2001 season looked promising, especially after defeating the Minnesota Vikings 24-13 in the first game of the season, when Minnesota was considered a high-quality team. First-year quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Chris Weinke looked confident, and rookie wide receiver Steve Smith was a solid addition to the wide receiving corps, which already boasted Pro Bowler Muhsin Muhammad. However, the offense quickly fell apart, Seifert lost control of his players, and at the end of the season, the Panthers had lost 15 consecutive games - an NFL record for the worst ending to a season ever. Even more scathing in the minds of the team's fans was the fact that in 12 of those 15 games, Carolina had been leading or tied in the second half of the game, and on many occasions lost the game on the opponent's final offensive drive. Seifert was fired, and former New York Giants defensive coordinator John Fox was hired as the team's third head coach. Fox's hiring would prove to be one of the best moves the Panthers franchise has ever made.
