Are Panthers ready to be the hunted?

I'm not sure if it's a good thing or a bad thing that you guys are on a roll and the Giants are on a slide. Does the trend continue?

The Denver game proved to me that the Panthers are ready to be a force in the NFL. I know everyone had talked about the Tampa game and now the Giants game but the Denver game was the real "Manhood" game. To win that game after such an emotional win agaisnt a division rival on a short week and knowig how big the next game meant for playoff standings was huge. Any other year including 2003 and 2005 that would have been a game the Panthers lost. The team would have been looking back and looking forward. They didn't. They went out on the field and held the 2nd best offense in the NFL to 10 points.

Are the Panthers ready to be hunted? Hell no. They are still hunting and that mentality is the difference between good teams and championship teams.

even is they were the #1 seed there won't be people standing around to crown them. everyone will still be saying that they don't deserve to be there and will be saying it's only a matter of time.

whether they are at the top or the bottom they are still the underdogs.

i also think that recently fox has been doing a good job of keeping players heads in check and not letting them dwell on success.

Agreed. But I think we've been hunted all year it's just that the talking heads arn't talking about us but I garentee, as you can see in interviews of players and coaches, people have thought of us a legitmate threat ever since we beat the chargers.
