In 2009: Panthers the 4th most dangerous team...

We have a very tough schedule, I don't see us winning unless the defense gets it together and Jake plays better.

If Meeks brings some urgency and intencity to the team, we will be fine.

I'm all for being optimistic, but we will be returning a very average and declining QB. We also have the same head coach, who seemingly did little or nothing about one the worst defensive game plans ever devised. We have talent and should be a .500 or slightly better team, but we're not going to be playing the game that matters with these pieces.

lol you guys think the Panthers will be one of the best teams next year.

Not saying that you're wrong, but why do you think there would be such a big drop? Stagnation?

I think we need another big play threat at receiver so we can have these protection slides to smith stop. We could us a Receiving Te, but that wont happen.

we are going to play much better teams next year, and the issues that were our downfall this season (terrible defensive line, coaching on the defensive side of the ball) will still be there.

I just don't understand how everyone has given up on Jake simply because of one game... some may say their judgement isn't from only one game, but those doubters never recognize that the team went 7-9 without Jake last year, or how many times (many) Jake has saved the game, or energized the team to win. It isn't raw talent that keeps Jake on this team, nor has it ever been. Jake brings a great deal of determination, fire, and leadership to the team... and for that he is a great quarterback. The Carolina Panthers offense is a ground defense... with two spectacular weapons that will only get better. As long as the defense is strong and Jake does his part, this is a very good team.

And starring opposite Jim Carey in "Yes Man" is Fiz with the "No Man". :rolleyes:

It's the off season and at this time of year I will accept nothing less than 19-0. :D

This year we broke the "last to first" that was happening in the NFC South. Next year we break the "first to last" myth.

I can see us being really dangerous. Teams with lots of talent that are searching for their first win often are. :)

See: the Oakland Raiders game. Im not giving up on him completely. But it is time to start looking elsewhere. The rest of your comments are pretty spot on, however.
