    With the season completely OVER and the football hang over in full effect, the big question for Panther fans is, "what do we do to get back to the post season?" I think we will agree that this team needs help in the areas of defensive end and safety on defense.  On offense, the work is a little more extensive as they may look for help at offensive tackle, wide receiver, and running back. How would I attack these issues?  Glad you asked.
