Panthers are being ignored by the media

Recommended Posts

Been reading through NFL articles this morning, and saw a lot of NFL coverage on TV yesterday. No one is talking about the Panthers as a threat. Regardless of being on a bye week or whatever, all the other top teams in the NFC - the Eagles, Saints, Rams, Vikings...are all getting tons of attention.  Every time the playoff picture was brought up, the Panthers are sitting there at 7-3, but might as well be invisible. It's like this team didn't go to the Superbowl by thrashing every team in the NFC just two years ago. Aside from Drew Brees, all the other teams in the NFC playoff picture have little to no playoff experience. If the Panthers get into the playoffs against a bunch of teams going in for the first time, I like our chances. 

I'm not trying to get my hopes up or anything, but the Panthers play best when no one is talking about them. Expectations have killed this team in the past. This is right where the Panthers need to be. Lets keep it this way and good things will happen. If they beat the Saints and Vikings in the coming weeks...this media silence might start to change.

My sentiments exactly...  Focus needs to be on beating Jets this week.

No one is going to take us seriously unless we beat NO in the Dome.  That loss to the Bears is a stench we can't remove otherwise.

Almost comically easy to predict how a Panther season will go.

Start of a season

Media thinks the Panthers will be good = Panthers flop

Media doesn't pay attention to Panthers or care = Panthers make a run to the postseason

As others have alluded to already, I'm absolutely fine w/ "flying under the radar".  Historically, it's when we perform the best.

We won't be taken seriously  unless we beat the Saints or the Vikings in December.  If we beat either of them we'll be getting more than enough attention. If we sweep them then we'll probably be in the top 5 in Power Rankings that following Tuesday after the Vikings game. 

Right now it looks like Patriots, Eagles, Steelers, Vikings, and Saints are all solid top 5 teams. We might be in the discussion for 3rd best team in the league if we beat both of them emphatically.
