Starters and second string were toe to toe. After that was a joke. Back up oline. Ummmm no
,!


I really did not see us "toe to toe" with the Texans. Despite being tied at half, O thought the Texans looked loke a playoff team and we looked like a 6 win team. They turned the ball over twice, otherwise the halftime score would have been 20-6 or worse. sure you can give our defense credit for causing the turnovers but, it seems to me that there are really only 2 things that will happen when the other team has the ball: they score or turn it over. We can't continue like this. We MUST force teams to punt the ball. I don't think Texas punted the entire first half. Plus, we need to turn those TOs into TDs not mere FGs.

Overall I was quite seriously disappointed with the Panthers' showing last night. Not in terms of losing, but I didn't see anything that makes me think we have improved in any phase of the game.

In terms of wins, I wasn't predicting 12 or 13, but I thought we could win 10. Now I have serious doubts.

Anyone that says a preseason game is meaningless is fooling themself. This game showed us all that this team has a lot of work to do.

10 - 12 wins in still where I stand, and like others have said its the 1st gm and starters didnt play much. Wait till the 3rd pre-season gm to jump of the we will be good boat at least...lol Redzone D was good so if we can hold teams to FGs we can still be a good team even if teams move the ball up and down the feild..

And to ppls saying calm down and be realistic, thats all well and good but I thought fan was short for fanatic ....

Im a Panthers fanatic and theres no way ill every going to a season thinking they will not do well, thats way you play the games..

Anyone who thinks that a preseason game gives any indication as to how the team will perform during the regular season is fooling themselves. Preseason is mostly about judging individual performance.

The results of this game are completely irrelevant irt whether we will get 6 wins or 12.

I don't think now is the time to panic. Houston was out there like it was a playoff game.

I feel like taking a day away from this joint until the wadded panties begin to loosen from our more effeminate members.

He only looked twice as good as Matt Ryan.

So yeah, a below average performance for him.

Panthers will win the SB if the defense does what the offense did last year.


Why would the defense do that? Are they getting a genius coordinator, Cam Newton, Olson, Shockey, and Hangman worth of upgrades.

The Panthers looked great in that 1st quarter with the starters out there. Cam was great and those guys were rolling. I agree with Kalil this team is going to win the Super Bowl. Then I woke up and watched that 1st quarter. :huh:

What is the most important defensive stat? Points scored against.

The starters gave up 3 points despite Houston having the ball in good field position.

The majority of yards and points scored by Houston was on special teams and by 3rd stringers who are likely not to be on the 53 man roster.

Confuscious say: Better to keep one's mouth shut and appear a fool than open it and remove all doubt. Those drawing any conclusions from the game last night from the defense are removing all doubt.

The only conclusion I drew from last night is that people should temper enthusiasm a bit. This team has work to do.

The only conclusion I drew last night is that the punters looked good must be having a good training camp! :)
