aside from the Vikings. No surprise there but the best part is they have us ranked ahead of the Jaguars who are at 1-1. Again not surprising but very amusing.

"Cam Newton is only the sixth quarterback to throw for over 400 yards in back-to-back games. Don't get too excited, as one of those guys was Billy Volek. What is worth getting excited about is that Newton is ready for the big boys. The dude just doesn't seem impressed by the NFL. While that's a big plus for Panthers fans, the defense could really use Jon Beason. Give Carolina credit -- it hung in with the Super Bowl champs, but Ron Rivera's guys have to be able to stop somebody. They allowed the Pack a staggering 8.1 yards per play after allowing 7.3 to the Cardinals."

Pretty obvious we're close to being a very good team. Just need to be more disciplined and clean up the RZ and run D. This team is playing far better than I expected at this point.

That's like being the best masturbator. You never win but you're REALLY good at it.

I know. :( I just found it a little humorous that we were rated higher than the Jaguars and they have the better record.

Thank you Captain Obvious, too bad that wasn't in the title or anything.

I would add tightening up against the "Big" TD play

We have given up the following in the first two games of the season:

80+ yard punt return for TD
80+ yard Pass TD from Kolb to Doucet
30+ yard Pass TD from Kolb to King (granted Beason blew his achilles)
40+ yard Pass TD from Rodgers to Jennings
80+ yard Pass TD from Rodgers to Nelson

Some huge scoring plays given up by our Defense and ST

People keep saying this like we've been blown out in our losses and had the worst games in all the league.

I think some of us are so used to the losses that we couldn't possibly fathom a win.

Could have condensed a lot of that by just saying, kill Pugh. However, that's where the discipline comes in.

We don't need to kill him. Just tell him for every blown coverage he needs to buy Otah Bojangles.

It's just pretty garbage to think that were the best team of a the worst category. Just stating that it's not something a franchise should be praised, happy, or excited about. I am excited for each and every week because were a very competitive team, but not excited about starting the season with losses.
