Duke talking Niner football on WFNZ.


http://www.wfnz.com/articles/news/austin-duke-charlotte-49ers-program-coach-lambert-doing-it-right-way

I respect Austin and his points and his opinions.  He was given an opportunity by Lambert (who I think is a wonderful human being, just not so great a football coach) and I have no problem with him remaining loyal to him.  I also agree with him that we as fans need to be patient.
My problem with Lambert is that I don't see the improvement I'd like to see five years in.  Missed tackles, dumb penalties, blown coverages, poor special team play (with the exception of Arthur) and terrible play calling have not changed in five seasons.
He also doesn't see that attendance is down and we as fans are becoming apathetic to the program.  I don't mind losing, the program is new and will take time to build, but I want to lose smarter.
It was nice that we won a Saturday, but we still had 15 penalties (three declined), a terrible blown coverage on their td pass, and a terrible run up the middle on fourth and one in the opening drive.
The players made the plays we needed and the 2 point conversion call was gutsy and awesome, but I still left the game thinking we got away with one.

I would expect him to be loyal.

.        I see no mention of this on the board, but Austin was cut from practice squad again on Thursday.

Are practice squads disbanded after every season or will he remain on the practice squad through the offseason?

Yes.  Duke is technically able to sign with any team after the Panther season is over.


Practice squads don't exist until cutdown day.

its hard to believe he is nfl level.  He was off the practice squad 10 wks?  no other team took a shot.  tons of guys out there is speed or faster.  not hating on him...just realistic.  The Panthers are a train wreck at WR so if there is a chance in hell its here

Actually, any team can sign him off of our practice squad and the Panthers will get no compensation for him. However, if a team takes him off of our practice squad he HAS to be on their active roster for 3 games.
