Apparently our overunder is at 4 wins

Gru and Jaws bot said we would win more than that and Gru mentioned how unpredictable we will be and that we will surprise some people.

Probably has as much to do with the coaching staff.

And while I like the staff, were I a betting man and barring significant roster changes, I'd take the "under" right now.

It's a rebuilding year. I'm comfortable with that.

Hard for me to take under 4 for any NFL team. Gotta have a lot of bad magic and perfect storms coming together to win 3 or less.

I know, there have been threads about the over/under though.....and unless you picked under some deemed you a nuthugger.

Was an attempt at a joke.

Read this article:

http://www.footballl..._panthers.shtml

"At FootballLOCKS.com we've never been afraid to call it like we see it, and project a 1 win season or worse!

Record Projection:
In 2011 we project the Panthers to go (1-15), falling several games below the Vegas win total of 4.5"

Very true. Statistically, it is rare for a team to win less than 3 games or win more than 13. It happens, but there is enough parity in the NFL to keep it from happening too much.

As much of a "debacle" (Fox's words) as last year was, the Panthers would have won 3 games if Kasey would have nailed that very makeable FG in Cleveland.

and it frankly took a lot of work by the front office and Fox to be on different pages yet still wanting to play the season togehter for it all to happen.

With our ridiculous schedule, young team, new coaching staff and philosophy on both sides of the ball, holes at DT, CB and meh OL, 4-5 wins seems about right. Rebuilding mode does not equate to wins, but we are moving in the right direction now.
