  1. Lack of respect for the Panthers is because...

    I think according to current estimates, the Charlotte Metro area is ahead of Pittsburgh now.  Charlotte is 22nd or 23rd, while Pittsburgh is right behind Charlotte.  http://www.citypopulation.de/php/usa-metro.php   Of course, both teams draw fans from outside the Metro area.  I know plenty of Panther fans in the Winston/Greensboro/High Point area that head to Charlotte at least once or twice a year for a game (myself included). 
  2. Lack of respect for the Panthers is because...

    I agree with this to an extent, but then why did so many pick Atlanta to win the NFC South?  They have hardly been a model of consistently.  So I will add something to your reason.  The Media likes teams that have either proven themselves (as you said), or have/sign big name players on offense.  If we had a guy like Julio Jones, or had we signed someone like Cobb in the off season, the media would have at least picked us to win the division saying something along the lines of "they got Cam some help".   Back when both us and Atlanta were undefeated, it seemed the analyst all said that Atlanta was better because of Julio Jones.  IMO, our passing game is much better than Atlanta, even with Jones, but that is not easy to quantify for media types because we don't have a big name receiver for them to glorify.    Those type of signings are sexy and draw attention, even if they don't make the impact that many analyst seem to believe they do.  Signing Oher and Tillman are better signings imo due to salary cap restrictions, but they won't draw raves from the media like the signing of a big name receiver would.  In truth, this is something our own fan base had issues with, especially after KB went down.    But they were relatively cheap and allowed us to get help in other areas while not killing our cap numbers down the road. 
  3. Is anyone worried Stew might get burnt out?

    We will likely end up with a bye week, and that should help some.  Wouldn't be opposed to him sitting out the second half of some games if we get the big lead. 
  4. While our offensive line play has improved this year, Pitt probably has a overall better offensive line irt to run blocking than we do.
  5. Is Norwood the worst Gettleman move to date?

    Yes, no, or maybe.   I realize we live in an era of impatience and instant gratification, but this is a question that is impossible to answer at this point. 
  6. Cam can make more NFL history

    They likely meant total yards.  Looking at NFL.com, he has 19890 total yards. 
  7. Early Line Versus NO

    If I were a gambling person, I would take Carolina all day with that line.  New Orleans defense is terrible and their offense has struggled the last couple of games. 
  8. Sunday night game thread

    Snow on the ground, rookie qb for Denver and most of NE's receivers not playing.  Could this end in a tie?
  9. Sunday night game thread

    The amazing thing about that one is he did with a group of receivers that might not be the best group in a college game, much less the NFL. 
  10. Sunday night game thread

    Number one target for the the Patriots, Brandon Lafell. 
  11. Sunday night game thread

    I thought he has played fairly well for a guy starting his second NFL game.  He took a shot on that last throw, but put it right in the receivers midsection. 
  12. Sunday night game thread

    Denver might not get the ball back. 
  13. Seattle is the 2nd best team in the NFC

    He is their second leading receiver on a team that doesn't have a great group of receivers.  And he demands coverage from the defense that his replacement will not.  Don't get me wrong, he may not be the weapon that he was in N.O., but I wouldn't go so far as to say he has not had an impact. 
  14. Seattle is the 2nd best team in the NFC

    Cardinals beat Seattle in Seattle just a couple of weeks ago.  Its pretty clear at this point they are better than Seattle.  Better qb, better receivers, and at this point, a better secondary.   And as much as we disparage Jimmy Graham, he was their second leading receiver, and he is done for the year.  That is not going to help.
