I don't see the point in making this kind of statement. You're dealing in the absurd since you don't know what tomorrow will bring. It's more arrogance than it is confidence. A humble person realizes that you don't control every factor in this world. You work hard and hopefully you receive the fruits of your labor.

Saying you're going to win prior to having the match is arrogant and shows a lack of respect for the opponent.


The only thing important here to me is who is saying this and not what was said. I agree with your premise (and others) of showing it on the field and to show respect for the opponent. I also agree that you can have high goals without advertising it.

The source is what is intriguing here. As far as I can tell this is something out of character for Kalil and it comes on the heels of a major transaction involving a first round draft pick in the unit he is the leader of. I give him a pass. The guy sounds genuinely excited to me and most likely regrets having said it already.

its called swag. but until the defense can prove they can get off the field,the only super bowl we will see is that of some lucky charms.

It's main steam for all Sports fans now... Mike and Mike just did a piece on it on my way in to work.

Golic liked it! Said "it was very well written and that if you're a Panthers fan, you have to love it"

Of all things one could say about this letter, well written is definitely not one of them.

I don't think we'll win the SB, but I still love this post. I want the players to believe this. It may be subconscious, but I really think we'll see a better product if they believe that they're capable of more. It's got to be hard to stay motivated when you're just hoping to not be the worst team.

It's nice seeing confidence coming from our team...crazy what a difference 1 year can make.

That being said, im sure all 31 other teams just printed this out and put it on the board.

But screw it, im too excited....GO PANTHERS

I think out of all the questions Rivera will have to deal with, this is the easiest one:

"It's the goal of every team, every year, to win the Super Bowl."

Well as for me, I love confidence but hate "guarantees" like this. More than 90 percent of the time they backfire.

Mind you, if they do actually win it, this will become legendary.

We need attitude like this. No one setting for anything less than greatness.

If they go into every game with this attitude we are going to see some good football this year. Every player has to buy in.

Fug 2010.
