Impressed by this because kalil paid money to give this message directly to the fans. Also, this was well thought out. Not impulsive. does not seem like the usual player bragging to the press to get attention.

Got to believe this team is serious. Coincidence that the Panthers just sent the same message with the Otah trade.

This team is for real.

Full speed ahead and damn the torpedos!!


Whether it comes true or not, this is exactly what I want to see from our players. If they don't believe in themselves, how do they expect anyone else to believe in them? I say good for Kalil, and even better for the Panthers as a whole. I love that the front office and coach are behind this 150%, and especially RR's comments about expecting 52 other players to feel this way too, or we'll find 52 other guys who do. Pure awesome...

All in Kalil, All in!

I agree with LadyPanther! He didn't just say this in the media. One of the quietest All Pro's in the country paid to take out a full page ad in the local newspaper. I love it! Go Panthers! Way to go Kalil.

Its also important to note Kalil did not say we would go undefeated, which could be taken as a sign of disrespect to all future opponents. We could make the playoffs as an 9-7 team like the Giants last year and win the Superbowl.

ALL IN!

Got to bump this. Not to call Kalil out, because I still love the fact that he did it. But now I can't help but wonder why, and the question I keep going over and over is this: "Did he really believe it?"

Kalil is undeniably one of the smartest men on the team. So how the hell could he have been so wrong in this regard? How do we go from his prediction of being the best in the league to panning out to be the worst? He was in training camp. He saw the direction the organization was heading in. He saw that we added no personnel, or in any way improved the coaching or line-up. He saw our secondary depth was as tenuous as Rivera's grasp of coaching. He saw that our D-line had the ferocity of a well-fed pomeranian and the power of a fully loaded SMART car. He saw the college read option offense taking form. He saw how the RBs were going to be used. He saw that Cam was going to be a dink and dunk passer with only 1 viable WR option. And he saw our schedule.

He must have known we were about to implode.

There is no way that a man of his intelligence, in his position, knowing what he knows, could have misjudged the team so badly. So why run the ad? In my mind there's only two reasons. 1) He was trying to embolden a weak team into a winning mentality so that in the lack of any tangible improvement we would have at least a psychological edge, or my inner conspiracy theorist says 2) That this is exactly what he wanted. He wanted to get in the public's eye, raise the attention level, and heighten the expectations, so that when we inevitably tanked it would come under much larger scrutiny. If we had just tanked in the eye of the microscopic Carolina market, no one would care. But making a delcaration the way he did would put our catastrophic failure in the lime light of the nation. People would ask questions. People would look at the coaching. People would look at the GM. People would want a change. Maybe this was the only action a player could make that wouldn't get him fined or suspended that would bring about real change to the upper echelons of the organization to ensure that though the season would be lost, that we wouldn't turn into a perennial loser paradoxically with one of the most talent-loaded rosters in the league.


I think the smart money is on option #1, but I can't shake the feeling that it was option #2. Or maybe it was #3: he was just wrong.

With Cam's season last year, and the way we finished the season, there was a feeling that big things might happen this year.

I completely agree with you. I now see that kalil saw the upcoming implosion of the Carolina and raised the bar on purpose, to make sure major changes happen. I think he saw that ron is too vanilla

he was trying to hype up the fanbase and he probably did think we were going to make a playoff run because of cam, etc.

you're reading too much into it. he was wrong and that's really all there is to it. the rivera era is 7-15 and the superbowl ad has nothing to do with people being pissed. it just makes him look like the dumb one.
