Mpst folks aren't bitching about the players or the team and we know we might be good in a year or so. Most complaints seem to be about missed opportunities, miscues and self-destructing. The Rams last year showed that you can drastically improve in a year. Even Fox took a 1-15 team and turned it into a 7-9 team in a year. With a worse quarterback than we have now. It is hard to sit back and watch us get close but not finish. That isn't about growing a pair but whether you are fine with always looking ahead with the old "wait until next year" mantra versus expecting them to deliver now and being disappointed when they don't. Seems the fans who set few expectations and are happy with whatever happens are the ones who need a pair.

lol detroit went 2-14 not that long ago and now have won their last 8 games.

"Not that long ago" =/= 9 months

How did the lions do the first 5 weeks after their 2-14 season? To save you the trouble of looking it up I'll tell you: They went 1-4

And now they are 4-0...

Jimmy Clausen --- Cam Newton

Dwill & Stew on IR --- Dwill & Stew better than ever

89 discontent & wanting out --- 89 rejuvenated & having a career year

Jeff King --- Shockey & Olsen

Otah on IR --- healthy & good o-line

bottom of the barrel D --- young & talented, yet undisciplined D

Fox & Davidson --- Rivera, Chud, & McDermott

JR depleting roster --- JR pulling the trigger on Cam & resigning/extending ALL core players

Seriously! How much improvement does it take to satisfy you ungrateful bastards? Look at the drastic improvements in our roster, coaching, & owner's demeanor over the past 9 months.

Our team had 1 freaking month to implement a totally new offense, defense, & philosophy. Cam had 1 freaking month of preperation. Rivera is a freaking rookie HC.

In 9 months, & a ridiculously short offseason, the Panthers have gone from the NFL's worst team to one that is a few pieces away from winning the Super Bowl. And it's coming; this group will win the Super Bowl. Stop all the nonsense & enjoy watching this team's growing pains as they transform into an elite team & Super Bowl Champions.

Either grow a pair, buy a pair, steal a pair, or just quit fronting & put on panties. All this bitching needs to stop.

Ws. All that matters.

This team has kept the games close against some of the better teams in the league. The loss margin is now down to 3pts, instead of the 7 that we lost to before. But now the next 4 opponents are B and C list teams -Atl, Wash, Min & Ten. I dont think any of those teams are the caliber of what we have faced to this point. I am not going to predict 4 wins but how can one not be optimistic about our chances? We lost against some very good opponents, what is going to happen when the opposition isnt so good? The middle of our schedule is lookin ripe to pull a few wins out of, then a few divisional game to end the season. December is going to be tough, but a little momentum goes a long way...

This year the record is pretty insignificant to me.

Next year and the next decades record is VERY significant to me

Wait, is this just another one of those "entertaining losses" threads.

Don't care.

Thank You

Regardless of record, showing love for a team that is overachieving is borderline euphoric and far more entertaining than struggling to remain upbeat for one that is consistently underachieving.

The passion and fire is back. Everything else tends to follow.

Not many people want to adjust their expectations, which is their right . But I will say that comparing this year's 1-4 to last year's is somewhat unfair. The saints kicked our asses last year at home. As much of the teams we played on a weekly basis.

But I won't try to convince anyone of my way of thinking. It sucks losing, but for the life of me I refuse to believe that team is no better than it was last year. Can't and wont

I think you are right about that. This team is more exciting and frustrating to watch than last year. This year we compete every week and there is the expectation we could win and like yesterday should win. Exciting because we can score points and move the ball, frustrating because we can't stop anyone and let them move up and down the field at will.

Don't get me wrong, compared to last year when you felt like if you got behind by 3 points you couldn't come back, this team is eminently better. But I can't say I am happy or content to see us lose every week especially when much of the damage is self-imposed. This team has raised the bar for our expectations. Last year I pretty much wrote the year off, this year not so much. People who say that we are no better than last year are just fishing for an argument or are Jimmy apologists scrapping to save a shred of face.

I'm neither happy nor content with losing. That will NEVER happen. The walk from the stadium to the car sucked. Especially the who day chants. I also realize that improvement matters. Winning matters most though, but reality is, we aren't there yet

I had a moment sitting in the stands watching our team walk off after a failed 3rd down up 4. I said they (the saints) are grind it out and leave little time for us while scoring. We had our shots. All the shoulda coulda wouldas. One day idk when, we'll close those games.
