I'm standing pat with my summer prediction of 6 to 8 wins and hoping to hell I'm wrong. Our defensive depth is just terrible at D line and CB. Our schedule is brutal when you look at the offenses we have to face. 8-8 with our D and the schedule we play would be a solid step forward.

Suck it.

I understand why you are trying to stay level headed so that you aren't let down if your expectations aren't met but I'm thinking we are a 9 to 10 win team this year. So long as we can keep that defensive front seven healthy. I Honestly wouldn't mind seeing the beast being held out until the week two game versus the aints to give him that extra time to heal. As long as we can keep Edwards, Anderson, keuchly, Beason, and T.D in there with good rotation I truly believe that defense can come up with the needed stops to win us those games that we lost last year. It also doesn't hurt that we finally got a kicker that looks like he can actually make the kicks when we stall out for once. Why we let Kasay go I will never understand. Call me optimistic but with that front seven I see them creating enough pressure on the qb to hide our deficiencies in the secondary and maybe even make them look better then what they really are. So as long as we can stay healthy and that defense gels to mid season form I'd say watch out because this team is going to be a force to reckon with.

Sorry if the post has horrid structure. It's a pain in the a$$ posting with a iPad

I just made a thread about depth. Our DT depth sucks ass, especially at 3-tech, but our ends have some good depth. Also I'm putting a lot faith in Norman. I just feel real good about this kid but if he or Gamble goes down then we are in trouble but then again we made it to the super bowl with Cousins and Reggie Howard as our corners.

History tells us that the Panthers rarely win more than 10 or 11 in the regular season if things go our way (read stay healthy)and are just as likely to go 7-9 if they don't (last year for example). I can see 8 or 9 wins being a safe bet. That way you are going to be one or at most 2 games away from where we will finish.

The folks going with 12 or 13 wins are the ones on the fringe.

What do I want?

I want us to be in the conversation for the playoffs come week 17. I want us to be playing a meaningful game at the last regular season game. It doesn't matter how many wins we have as long as we end up making the playoffs. If we don't make the playoffs, it doesn't matter how many we won either. I want to make the playoffs and want to win how ever many that takes.
I want destiny to be in our hands to shape our immediate future come week 17. A chance to move on by beating the Saints* as badly as they beat us last year. In their stadium in front of their fans. A Panther offensive juggernaut running rampant in the bayou. And a take no prisoner's defense reeking havoc on the Saints* who are out of the race having suffered too many early season losses.

Not asking too much, right ??

Sounds about right to me!

I, with all homerism aside, see this team going 4-1 into the bye week. Seriously. This is a 10-6 team, barring horrid injury bug like last season. Split with Saints** and Falcons, sweep Bucs. The teams that will probably beat us are Philadelphia and Chicago because of their running game which we will not be able to stop, and Denver because Manning will pick this secondary apart (He will be in midseason form by then). Maybe slip to 9-7, we oftentimes get shocked by some nobody team at least once in a season. But I seriously see 10 wins when I look at this schedule. Cowboys and Redskins are grossly overrated, so those are two wins nobody, for whatever reason, thinks we will get.

Anywhere from 8-8 to 10-6.

I still think we're a year away, but we win enough games to be in the playoff conversation this year if not make them as a wildcard.

Somewhere between 2-14 and 14-2.


I'll be optimistic and say 10-6 with a WC birth.
