ESPN Picks the Panthers As Tied for Most Likely Team (who made the playoffs last year) To Miss the Playoffs This Coming Season

Recommended Posts

All the voters in this unilaterally picked the Panthers to miss the playoffs apparently (22 out of 22)

And the little blurb is written by David Newton, I wonder why he sounds so negative?  Thoughts?

I guess its true we've never had back to back winning seasons, but then again we still went to the playoffs 3 years in a row (2013, 2014, 2015) in the somewhat recent past . And we've gone 4 out of the past 5 seasons total.

Newton is probably upset he can't share butt pics with Big Cat anymore.

Well history tells us we will have a losing season and until we break that (I think we do this year) then expect us to be counted out. Shouldn't be surprising

We’re the easiest answer to this question. Since 2000, we are the most inconsistent team in the league by a large margin.

I’m not sure why there is such confidence here that we are a lock to return to the playoffs this year. We play in the toughest division in football and have never had back to back winning seasons. Not to mention a suspended linebacker, 2/5’s of our starting oline being below average at best, no DE depth, a scary (in a bad way) secondary, a completely unproven running game coupled with a brand new offensive coordinator.  That’s not even taking into account the games conservative coaching will cost us or injuries.  

I believe I saw a stat that says we were 7-1 in one score games last year.  We better catch that lighting in a bottle twice because if we don’t, we are sitting at home in January.  Even a respectable 5-3 record in those games last year would have had us out of the playoffs  

Luckily, we have a healthy Cam who can mask many of these weaknesses. If we and Norv don’t mesh, we are in for a losing season and I fully expect to see the fire Rivera threads by week five.

If history repeats its self we should be 7-9 next year . The panthers don't win back to back .but that's all brain wash for people not to bet on us next season . We will win the sb

Only thing that can screw is is the left side of our line other then that  we are better at every position

I love it.  Remember the off season before 2015?  Same narrative.  I am excited for this season.  VERY excited.

Basically every NFC South playoff team made that list(Saints received votes as well). The NFC South is hyper competitive, so that makes it tough to slide in easily. We are the easiest target because of history and also some of the most glaring roster holes and biggest questions amongst our group. 

It is what it is. No reason to get caught up on it.
