Seriously, take a look at the opponents we face in only the first month of the season:

Tampa Bay
New Orleans
Giants Prime Time

In the first four weeks the Panthers have half of their Divisional games for the season and one of their two (And, personally, the more important) prime time games. How the Panthers come out in the win-loss department will weigh very heavily not only on people's perception of them, but on their Playoff chances as well. If they can even break even in the first four weeks, I will call it a success. However if they can come out 3-1 or (God forbid) 4-0, I believe the Panthers will already be playoff bound. If they are 1-3 or winless after the first four weeks, I would say we would likely be in for another rough season. However I don't see them going any worse than 2-2 in the first four weeks, if not 3-1.

I don't see the first month as any more critical than the rest. But just to entertain you, I do believe that we have a real opportunity to be 4-0, and will likely be no worse than 3-1. I believe that even with Cam, people don't really recognize that we are poised to beat bitches this year. Beat bitches! Tampay Bay, New Orleans and especially the Saints* are bitches.

it's nice to have a coach who doesn't spew "let's just win three out of four" rhetoric. this team is hungry and will fight to win every one of those games - they won't be satisfied with anything less than 4-0. should be fun to watch.

A bit too early to be predicting games but if everything goes well I expect 3-1 start.

It wasn't that many years ago that winning early wasn't as important as winning in December. Very rarely did teams have many early divisional games.
The schedule makers have really outdone themselves. They got it where the first month is much more important than it use to be.

So yes, it'll be important that the team starts strong. The coaches know this, and will be preparing our team for it. It's going to be important for our defense to start well.

I like Div games early. Less time to game plan for our offense/Defense and hopefully we will be healthy as well.

You don't seem to understand that being 1-0 against all three of our Division rivals would put us on top of the NFC South from the get-go. Divisional Games are important.
