32 posts in this topic

Good god.

I've noticed a common trend.

Analysts and writers clench to the nuts of whatever team is hot at the moment.

No doubt. I bet there are still analysts who think New Orleans is going to make the playoffs.

As dumb as the comparisons he makes in the article.. I don't blame many people picking against us.

Besides last week, the 3 weeks prior to that were just awful play. I think we played a lot better in the Green Bay game and maybe John Fox realized we were just totaly in a slump and thats why we opened with a flea flicker, to announce we are going to put up a fight. The only problem was, our defense was still slacking.

Honestly, if our defense can't man up in the Tampa game, it's basically game over I think. Defense needs to show up this week and stop playing 200 feet off people on 3rd and long situations. Granted they did show up the first time around and our offense was the one having problems.. But you never know with this team, it's rare they both do good in the same game.

Yeah!! Thats what makes this team so scary. When you win and not play well is a sign of a great team.

From the skimming this article, SI thinks tampa will win easy cuase we have no second option to steve smith, and tampa's d is better than our running attack is good. Also they think julius is old. wtf...please give your input, and if im wrong or drawing the wrong assumptions from this article, feel free to let me know. :mad5:

I don't know why the media is on this "Panthers defense is old" kick. It started before the 2007 season. Ever since when does 28 qualify as "old"?

As the great Johnny Unitas said, "talk is cheap, let's play'.

If the Panthers lose this game, they deserve the loss. If they win, they earned the win.

Our leaders need to show up. Our players need to be intense and on from beginning to end. Our Defense needs to be disciplined. Our team needs to execute. Our coaches need to be innovative....well, 4 out of 5 ain't bad.
