I have always found it funny how so many people have an opinion on how the Panthers will match up against other teams yet 90% of those people will never watch a snap of a game the Panthers aren't in and truely have no idea about any other team in the league. With that being said, the 10% that actually follow the NFL aren't hard to pick out when giving their opinons.

Eventhough I hate both teams, Giants vs. Cowboys is historic matchup and a great way to kick off the season. Can't wait till kickoff.

Meh to it all. The whole NFC East is always so overhyped it just gets annoying. Dallas has sucked forever and they are always front page. The Eagles have never won a super bowl. The Redskins are irrelevant in my opinion. NY is the only team that has lived up to the hype but we beat them by 75 the last time we played them in the playoffs. The Panthers are undefeated against the NFC East in the playoffs. I'll just stay in my small market world and enjoy the Panthers. I certainly watch every non-Panther game that is on but I am not all fired up about them, sorry to offend. I would mow the grass during a Skins/Eagles game and not think twice about it.

I'm not one to flaunt my knowledge of opposing teams anyway. I pay attention to the division teams, but the other 28 are just not that interesting to me.

I don't know about you guys but I'm so burnt out on the overexposure of the NFC East. Saints*/Packers was much more interesting last season. Still I will watch.

My family is from New York/New Jersey/Pennsylvania. I was telling my cousin the Panthers would kick his Eagles ass and his response was "the Panthers have no running game". Have you ever been in a conversation where the guy says something so dumb you sort of stop talking because there's no point?

I guess we will get to see replacement refs with live bullets. Yay.

It's not a conference thing and I don't even know where the Panthers record in the playoffs against the NFC fits into the equation but I would be just as excited to watch and Packers vs. Bears or Raiders vs. Chiefs match up tonight. Great history and you know those teams are going to come out with their A games for those match ups. I admittedly may be biased, but the NFC always beats up on each other and the games are usually very entertaining. Hell the Skins took down the Super Bowl champs twice last year. Now don't get me wrong, if it were the Jags vs. the Browns and the grass needed to be mowed, I might be right there with you. I just think it's an intriguing matchup of two good teams with two of the most underated QB's in the league.

Yeah, not a very knowledgeable fan there but I also would have to question your absolute reasoning behind the Panther's having such an easy time kicking the Eagle's ass. Feel free to list the reasons.

And for the record....Philly fans are of the most (if not the most) irrational fanbases around and I wouldn't want to have a conversation with them for the most part either.

In my dreams we would have that good of a home environment.

It's simple:

-the Eagles have an offensive line coach running their defense

-Jason Peters is done

-Vick will be done by the time we play them

-I'm a Panthers fan. Why would I bend over for my cousin's 8-8 team before the season starts

My first point would be Panthers could run against the wide 9 and Cam's escapability would help limit the effectiveness of that Wide9 stuff your ex-oline coach runs when he is calling defense. Your LB'ers would bite harder on Playaction B/C of this. Also you keep Aso in zone way too much, its fuging stupid and I want them to stop.

That said the Panthers D would barely be able to touch Vick, but the LB'er corps could contain his runs. The problem would be McCoy and the WR's wrecking everything.

Will be a good game IMO.
