But I wanna top 5 draft pick! J/k

It'd be nice but it sure as hell ain't lookin very likely at this point.

Not sure Smith is top 5 anymore and our RBs sure don't look top 5.

To answer the OP, if we win the next two we obviously have a shot at the playoffs.

Smith is not a top 5 receiver anymore? He has lost a few steps for sure but he is getting older, but he def is still top 5 receiver stats don’t lie.

As far as dwill.. he never was a power runner, with no offense line blocking for you, you almost have to hit the holes hard. Dwill even said last year that he runs 60% speed to the hole so the D cannot time it then he explodes through it. That won’t work if there is no time to find the hole.

And Stewart is just a beast enough said.

Greg Olsen said today on the radio that we could easily be 3-0 if a couple plays go the other way so they have the mindset they can go out and beat anybody. We have talent and confidence on this team and that can take you a long way and what I really like seeing was since the offense struggled a little last week the defense picked it up, that is what good teams do. You also have to assume that since we are so young we are only going to get better as the season goes on.

Patience is passe. We are now in the gen x era. Boomer babies, and by extension, their progeny, are King of the mountain for the forseeable future. It scares my giddy, so I am done thinking about that possibility.

A young team, getting younger, is usually expected to struggle. So it is only natural, when that team overachieves, that expectations may also be overly opptimistic. Hey, it works for this homer.

My giddy is all gaga for what is coming. And GOOOOO PANTHERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just trying to see if we could win the next two games against relatively tough football teams, if our confidence level as fans would go up to the point where we could be optimistic without being scared. We will eventually get to that point, just wondering how soon...

I understand that we have to win the 2 games first, and I'm not guaranteeing playoffs either. Just curious.

Threads haven't been that good lately. Just wanted to poll our community.

I can't help it but when TCF posts I just laugh.

Depends on how we win. If we play good football, keep improving, and look good in all 3 phases then sure. If we play like we did against the jags, but get lucky because the next two just play worse then us then no.

I expect that Cam will start to struggle more down the road as defenses adjust to him. Winning the next 2 gives us an outside shot at the playoffs.
