CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - There's been suggestions over the years
the Carolina Panthers can never catch a break.
Now they're out of Luck, too.
The lone bright spot amid Carolina's NFL-worst 2-14 season was
getting the No. 1 overall draft pick and the chance to take
potential franchise quarterback Andrew Luck. But three days after a
masterful performance in the Orange Bowl, Luck squashed the
Panthers' dreams on Thursday in a two-paragraph statement in which
he announced he's staying in school.
And with that, the Panthers' busy offseason was hit with a
surprising jolt. It comes as the Panthers are also busy trying to
find a replacement for coach John Fox.
