Cool, where did I ask you to give a poo how I feel?
Also, where did I ask for your validation of my opinion. I shared it, you criticized it. That's a you problem.
Too many people on this board act like they're above emotions or they're not associated with being a fan of this team... that's pretty stupid.
And when did criticizing your team equate to knee-jerk reactions?
I find it hilarious people here are repeatedly citing sh*t like it's written rules, "can't expect to win with a rookie coaching staff..."
Who made that rule? LOL... Go tell the 49ers that.
Yes, we had injuries and to some key players... But, go tell the Packers that means a lost season.
Our fanbase is so used to mediocre it's not even funny.
I'm not saying Rivera is an idiot or should be fired or anything like that, so what is "knee-jerk" about that? Oh, that's right! I expressed my opinion and it wasn't the cool one.
My observations of why we're losing wasn't based off of one game, it's based off of all of the games. Knee-jerk?
there is no better definition of knee-jerk than to look at 8 games and cry the sky is falling.. which is exactly what it sounds like from you and other peoples posts.. if it wasn't, you all would be disappointed, but patient..
you posting your opinion isn't a me problem.. I'm citing my opinion, and a very valid one, to everyone freaking out about a situation where clearly people are talking out of both sides of their mouth.. you point out rookie mistakes, by both coach and players, yet can't accept or understand that they are rookie mistakes..
if they don't change, Rivera and staff will get axed just like our past coach, who was fired for being extremely mediocre... this forum is freaking laughable at the moment and you think our fanbase accepts mediocrity?
are you f**king kidding me?
this is my point.. it's really pathetic for people to let their emotions control them in situations where your expectations were too high.. what the 9ers have to do with the Panther means jack poo.. we aren't the 9ers.. remember Denver a few years ago? 6-0, and then they fell off as bad as any team in recent years..
the Carolina Panthers are trying to build chemistry, and should they do so, it's very possible that you comparing us to the 9ers might turn out to be a joke.. who knows how long their success will last.. and if it does, great for them..
you can be pissed.. don't act like the Carolina Panthers are exactly in the same boat as the 9ers.. if our defense stepped up in any 1 of the 1st 5 or 6 games, I feel confident this loss would be a blip on the radar and we'd all be talking playoffs.. however, this team isn't a video game and you can't force success.. and just as fast as you found that success, teams have shown they lose it.
perspective. wait and see. none of which has to do with accepting mediocrity..
I feel like many of these people said "it's just one week, no big deal" 15 times in a row in 2001.
and what happened the next 2 years? perspective. thanks for helping me show people that overreacting is a bit much at this juncture..
