[i][b]The Truth: Carolina will finish last in the NFC South.[/b][/i]

I appreciate [url="http://www.nfl.com/players/ryankalil/profile?id=KAL275632"]Ryan Kalil[/url]'s moxie, taking out a [url="http://www.nfl.com/news/story/09000d5d82aca4bf/article/ryan-kalil-carolina-panthers-will-win-super-bowl-xlvii"]full-page advertisement[/url] in the Charlotte Observer to declare that the Carolina Panthers would win Super Bowl XLVII. Kalil didn't back away when we pressed him on SiriusXM Blitz on SiriusXM NFL Radio. However, he's absolutely nuts. I know quarterback Cam Newton and Carolina are a trendy playoff pick. I think Carolina is the fourth-best team in its own division.

The New Orleans Saints*** are in a chaotic state, dealing with the stench of the "bounty" scandal and the season-long suspensions of coach Sean Payton and linebacker [url="http://www.nfl.com/players/jonathanvilma/profile?id=VIL582180"]Jonathan Vilma[/url]. But they still employ quarterback [url="http://www.nfl.com/players/drewbrees/profile?id=BRE229498"]Drew Brees[/url] and are loaded on offense. Steve Spagnuolo is a major upgrade over Gregg Williams at defensive coordinator. The Saints*** have more talent and experience than Carolina.

It's well-documented that the [url="http://www.nfl.com/teams/atlantafalcons/profile?team=ATL"]Atlanta Falcons[/url] struggle in January, but they don't skip a beat in the regular season. Quarterback [url="http://www.nfl.com/players/mattryan/profile?id=RYA238179"]Matt Ryan[/url] and receivers [url="http://www.nfl.com/players/juliojones/profile?id=JON640315"]Julio Jones[/url] and[url="http://www.nfl.com/players/roddywhite/profile?id=WHI472686"]Roddy White[/url] comprise a more polished passing attack than Newton, Steve Smith and Co. in Carolina. New Atlanta defensive coordinator Mike Nolan is a gem, to boot.

The [url="http://www.nfl.com/teams/tampabaybuccaneers/profile?team=TB"]Tampa Bay Buccaneers[/url] quit on coach Raheem Morris last season. Greg Schiano changes the culture. He's the right guy at the right time. Tampa Bay upgraded the offense in a big way this offseason, drafting physical running back Doug Martin, signing difference-making receiver Vincent Jackson and pilfering tackle [url="http://www.nfl.com/players/carlnicks/profile?id=NIC723945"]Carl Nicks[/url]from New Orleans to solidify the offensive line. Martin is going to get 20 carries per game and will be my pick for Offensive Rookie of the Year. Fellow rookie Mark Barron is a winner at safety, plain and simple. Quarterback [url="http://www.nfl.com/players/joshfreeman/profile?id=FRE183259"]Josh Freeman[/url] will bounce back under Schiano, offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan and the rest of the new staff. I love Tampa Bay to rebound this year and knock on the playoff door. The Bucs are the surprise team in the division -- and they're better than the Panthers.

I told Kalil when we spoke on SiriusXM NFL Radio that he had raised the bar too high. Carolina won six games last year. Eight wins in 2012 would represent progress. The Panthers still have gaping holes behind Smith at receiver. And the defense has a bunch of question marks, even after the savvy draft pick of linebacker Luke Kuechly. Kalil says he can take criticism because he is "fat, bald and has short arms." I love the self-deprecation. Better to laugh than cry when the Panthers are in the basement.[/quote]

I honestly don't care. I have a good feeling about this season. anyone who watched our games last year knows that we were mere plays away from being 10-6 instead of 6-10. We were in every contest we played in save for maybe 2 or 3. If our defense plays even marginally better, we will be a playoff team.

Can anyone really take Adam Schein seriously? If it weren't for his unique voice and ridiculous enthusiasm, he wouldn't have a job talking about football. Not even just talking about the Panthers, everything he says is merely to play devils advocate to make things interesting or to go along with blatant certainties. It's pathetic and hard to listen to.

Cam Newton is a run first QB that will never translate to the NFL, and his leadership/maturity is in question.

Yeah, he has been hating on them for weeks on Sirius NFL. His partner (can't think of his name) has us finishing first I believe....

Few outside of the Panthers viewing area think that we will even sniff the playoffs this year. Moreover, they fail to realize the profound effect that injuries had on the team's defense last year. As the defense goes this year, so will we go. Eight games is a safe prediction in my book. But if Beason and Edwards stay healthy and Kuechly is all that is advertised (and there is reason to believe that he is), I think we will win at least 10 games because Cam's development, an under-appreciated Murphy and Tolbert will be good for at least two more than last year.

I have to say that of all of NFL sirius hosts, he is the least knowledgeable. His sidekick now is Rich Gannon who actually disagrees with him. He likes the Panthers and thinks they will compete for the division. Schein seems in love with Tampa and I really don't know why. I just don't think that Schiano will come in and be all that great right away. And we will see what a difference Payton makes in New Orlean's offense. Add that Atlanta has new coordinators across the board and frankly the table is set for the Panthers this year.

His reasoning is very poor, he points out the negatives in the other teams then goes on to say that they are still better than us?

I don't think that's how it works Adam.

The biggest insult is saying Tampa is better then us! Their team quit!!!!! and have a totally new staff. It takes at least two plus years for players to learn a new scheme; esp on d. So how are they magically better becuase they added vjack and hics? Bucs will occupy the cellar.

As for new orleans im calling .500 and that is becuase of Brees. Everyone is underestimating how much an interm coaching staff will hurt them. Plus their leaders on D are suspended. All the talent in the world doesnt mean poo without coaches putting them in the right place.

Our real challenge is atl, but i have a hunch we will have their number this year....or at least split.

This is with my homer glasses off

He seems to overlook how competitive our games were (Kalil tried to point that out to him). But Kalil didn't put much effort into it.....think he knew it wasn't worth it.

Schein has always been an annoying fug on the radio. This doesnt surprise me at all and honestly I dont give a rats ass either way. The only thing I care about is if the team thinks they are going to be good and proves it on sunday.

Good point... Wins and losses mean everything when you're trying to make the playoffs ,but when you start talking about future seasons, other things should be considered... We could have easily been 9-7 last season with a few breaks (and made FGs)... This team has a real chance to be solid.

The other thing I disagree with is that the Falcons passing game is "more polished" than the Panthers... White and Jones are good, I'll give them that, but their QB, what's his name??? He's never shown me anything...

Saints** will suffer due to dead coaching staff and suck ass defense, but Brees is Brees and they have a badass receiving corps (Though tbh it's the Manning Effect, their WRs aren't that great, Brees makes them good) Their offense will still be quite potent though I wouldn't look for Brees to break his record. They are going to be good but not 13-3 good. They will still be in the playoffs.

I think Atlanta has an implosion year. Turner is a beast but he's getting rusty. Ryan is pretty good in the regular season but I just don't see him being elite like Brees. He's good but not elite despite what Birds fans would tell you. Their D is going to be better than NO's defense but they are probably going to suck despite Asante Samuel. I think they miss the playoffs and have a disappointing season.

Tampa is going to have some growing pains but there will be a lot of reasons for their fans to feel hopeful by the season's end. I think they do similar to how we did last season.

I don't think the Panthers will go 12-4. The NFCS is going to be a battleground this season and I really don't see any of these teams having more than 11 wins tops. I do think the Panthers can unseat the Saints*** but tbh they need to go out with their war faces and prove it.

I wish I was as optimistic as everybody else. I am hopeful but right now Captain is our healthiest #2 corner and our d line is still unproven. My advice is to temper the 10-12 win talk. I will be the first to eat crow if I'm wrong.
