I'm not excited at all, but that's because this has been a tough year for me, not because I think we're going 8-8.


Even more reason for you to look forward to the season. It's an escape from real life. We know/think the Panthers won't be world-beaters or probably even SB contenders, but we still see promise in them. That is why I think this year will be fun and easy to appreciate the positives they are able to show.
Since January, my sister-in-law was hit by a car and put into a coma for a month (just now regaining her memory), my grandfather got sick and will probably pass away soon, my wife and I had our first kid, my parents are having to move in with me because pops lost his job, and the Vols football program was set back probably five years. I have had a busy year too! That's why I can't wait to see Beason lay out a New York Giant, or Smitty stiff arm the heck out of some Atlanta DB.

Didn't read any of the thread just the title. But how can you call yourself a fan of this team and not be excited? I don't expect them to go to the Super Bowl but expecting them to utterly fail.....Your not a fan. Not at all. You must like the team because of the colors like my girl. Or maybe you went to school with one of the players. But you can't seriously call yourself a fan of the team and about be excited about a new season with new faces. :toetap05:

how the hell can you NOT be excited?

stew is healthy for the first time in his career. Our O-line is healthy and will likely be dominant. If double trouble runs for 1100+ yards each again, matt moore is going to look like peyton manning and we'll have a top-five offense.

i guarantee you'll be glued to the screen by the third preseason game.

Just go to a local high school in the next couple of weeks, watch some practice. Go watch Deangelo or Smitty highlights on youtube. Look at highlights of Clausen or Lafell. There's tons to be excited about. I'm just starting to get excited because I've been so busy this summer, but once preseason starts and high school jamborees kick in, I will be ready to see this team go beyond expectations of most "analysts". Whether that's just a winning record, a playoff appearance, or hell, an NFC championship, this will be a good year.

I don't usually get excited about the season until the first preseason game.

But that's just me...

Defense is younger

Meeks gets to mold the youth into his system and not have to change old habits.
All the DT's signed last season will be all healthy at the same time.

I Love a young aggresive defense with lots to prove.

Offense

O -line is healthy
Stewart & Williams are healthy

Moore throws a better ball than Jake ever did

Smith once healthy should have a big season

And all the young WR's
Again Young guys try harder ,they have more to prove

This should be the best training camp in a long time

Lots of questions to get answers

I'm more excited for the EPL season to start and college basketball to start.

So I guess the answer is no
