So Blech Report posted their pre-season rankings yesterday under the guise that preseason games really don't matter when it comes to the regular season. Teams that won (or lost) in the preseason would have completely different records when the games really matter.

http://bleacherrepor...or-into-ranking

The Panthers are ranked 20th? Seriously?

I'll accept - maybe - that we don't need to be in the Top Ten yet. But we definitely should be considered in the top half of the league, with everything that we were able to do to finish out last season (and, of course, there's Cam - who should give us a few extra bumps up the list, well... just because)

What do you think? At this moment in pre-season, are we really 20th?

Bleacher report is run by fans that have absolutely no credibility what so ever.

Just so you know, saying "Bleacher Report says X!!" is basically the same as saying "some guy on another message board says X!!". It's just people playing sportswriter. It's not an actual media outlet.

6-10 last season. Until they prove otherwise, hard to say they should definitely be in the top half

problem #1: you're reading the bleacher report

problem #2: you read it like it wasn't written by wannabe sports writer monkeys with no credentials other than "i post on a messsage board" and "i watch football sometimes so i think i know stuff and stuff" and "i'm a fan". ANYBODY with a keyboard can write and have it posted on BR. anybody.

problem #3: you shared it here thinking that it would matter. there's only a couple people who read BR thinking that it's worth reading and sharing and it's more than likely because they write have written an article for it themselves.

I actually like reading bathroom stall philosophy more than BR.

Right-o. Seems nobody picked up on my subtle "Blech Report" reference in the post. Cool.

So regardless of how off-the-wall BR happens to be, some idiot posted that we're #20. I think we should be higher - regardless of where that report originated from. What say you? Where do you think the Panthers should be ranked heading into Week #1?

Aside from 'Blech', your post read like the guy's opinion was thread worthy. Maybe in June-July it would have been, but not in mid Aug. There's real action and real sports writing going on now.

Personally I would prefer the low rating and no respect. That just makes the victories taste so much better. I'd vote us for 29th.

Power rankings, whether from Bleacher Report or NFL.com, are absolutely useless and meaningless.

We should we be right now? Around 20th. No higher than 16-17.

We were 6-10 last year
