Panthers Fans On Muhsin Muhammad: 'His Production Doesn't Tell The Whole Story'

SB Nation's Cat Scratch Reader is remembering the career of one of their franchise greats: Muhsin Muhammad. The 14-year veteran announced his retirement on Thursday and, as Cat Scratch Reader points out, it's not all about the numbers.

I guess Muhsin decided he didn't want to wait all summer for a phone call that might not come. Yesterday he announced his retirement from football and received a proper send off by the Panthers. His production doesn't show the whole story. He was a key piece in this team's offense for years, and his shoes will be tough to fill. It would have been nice to see him stick around for one more year to help coach up these young rookies, but that doesn't fit the new youth movement the Panthers are going for.

Long-Time Panthers WR Muhsin Muhammad Announces Retirement

14-year veteran wide receiver Muhsin Muhammad has announced his retirement from pro football. Muhammad made the move official at a Thursday afternoon press conference

The final numbers for Muhammad show how much of an impact he had on the Panthers organization. He'll end his career as the franchise leader in receptions (696) and receiving yards (9,255). He's tied for the franchise lead in receiving touchdowns (50) and games started (141). He's second in 100-yard games (27) and total touchdowns (50). He's also second in total games played (155).

The Panthers leadership had pleasant words for the man who spent 11 years in a Carolina uniform.

"Coaching Muhsin has been a pleasure," said head coach John Fox. "He is the ultimate competitor, and you always knew he would give you everything he had. We shared some great moments, and his contributions were invaluable to the success we enjoyed. His receiving numbers reflect what kind of receiver he was, but he was also one of the best blocking wide outs to ever play in the NFL."

"The first word that come comes to mind when you think about Muhsin is toughness," said general manager Marty Hurney. "His competitiveness was contagious in our locker room. He was a dependable playmaker and a leader who brought very much to our team."

Stay tuned to SB Nation's Cat Scratch Reader for more on fans reaction to Muhammad's retirement.
