  1. Peyton Manning stormed off the field in 2010.

    To me not congratulating your opponent on the field of battle right after the game is much worse than not wanting to take predictably moronic questions from the press or listen to your gloating opponents comments.
  2. Winning with grace

    I believe the Carolina Panthers are only going to get better due to this SB experience. In the age of endorsements, it may not be the wisest thing to aspire to be the most hated team in the league. However, it might be fun to become the modern day version of the Oakland Raiders in their glory years. Are you ready for Superman to become Darth Vader?
  3. Bayless and Stephen A on Mike Shula

    Denver's D threw our offense off its game early and and Carolina never managed to recover any consistency after that.   Cam and the O will need to take it to another level next year because every opponent will be trying to replicate what Denver did yesterday.  
  4. Bayless and Stephen A on Mike Shula

    Our D seems to be made of tougher stuff, no doubt TD and the other vets have a lot to do with that. Need to find that same resiliency on O before next season because our opponents will be trying to Denver us all season long.
  5. Bayless and Stephen A on Mike Shula

    Denver came with more intensity and pressure than our offense has seen all season.  Our players were not prepared for it and became their own worst enemies for all the reasons you've listed.
  6. Winning with grace

    It is a pretty simple concept. Don't dish it out if you can't take it. Denver punched our O in the mouth and our O collapsed.   Now the Broncos are crowing about it. If the Panthers O and Special Teams are any good they will use this experience to fuel themselves to greater achievements next year.
  7. Turn on this team like rabid dogs...

    Panthers O and special teams need to toughen up. They got punched in the mouth and lost their lunch money yesterday. Nothing wrong with having fun, it  is entertaining, so what if it pisses off our opponents. Before the Panthers existed I followed a team that thrived off of opposing fan's hate. That team was loudly booed everywhere they went. Guess what? They had the highest winning percentage of any team in professional sports for decades. Those were good times too.
  8. Cam was let down by his offense

    The intensity of the Denver D from the first play was completely on another level in comparison to the Panthers O. It is almost like Denver had been previously blown out in a SB and vowed to do everything in their power to make sure that didn't happen again. It wasn't just another game for the Broncos. I suspect if these Panthers make it back to the big dance they will come out breathing fire too.
  9. Bayless and Stephen A on Mike Shula

    Broncos came out on to the field with a greater level of intensity that seemed to catch the Panthers off guard. After the first Broncos score the Panthers D seemed to settle down and get stronger as the game progressed.  The offense never really got in sync.  It seemed like anytime the O was moving the ball there would be a drive killing penalty or a turnover.  Credit Denver's D for much of that, by the end of the game our running game and passing attack were in shambles.
  10. So where does Carolina finish next year?

  11. Kony Ealy, Josh Norman, TD, Luke, and that Defense...

    Defense held up its end of the game and then some. Kept being put in bad field position but kept ballin' all the same. Didn't need much from the O or ST to win, but they weren't up to the task yesterday for whatever reason.
  12. NFL Rigged?

    The offense wasn't ready/prepared to play a defense as fast and aggressive as Denver's was today. Add in the less than special teams play and Carolina was their own worst enemy. Even then, had the Panthers offense mounted a couple of decent drives sometime during the second half they still could have won. Bottom line:  Panthers offense was unable to overcome their own mistakes and an aggressive Bronco's D and that is why Carolina lost. 
  13. This Team Is Ahead of Schedule: Remember That

    We are a year ahead of schedule. Getting back won't be easy, it never is, but the Panthers have a young core of players and will have more cap space and draft picks to address the weak areas. The future is promising.  
  14. Cam pouting at the podium

    We all learn more from our failures than we do from our successes. Cam has likely learned more today about himself and the game of football than he has in quite some time. He will be back next year better than ever.
  15. Bye Bye fairweather fans

    This is still the best team the Panthers have ever fielded and has more than enough talent to stay competitive for years to come. We will not see the same dramatic decline of the 2004 Super Bowl team. Changes will be made and Panthers will be better than ever next season.
