I was reading this morning that half of the teams in the NFL lost yesterday (of all those that played). I hope this isn't a bad sign for the Panthers.

Ummm yeah obviously half the teams that played lost....

I think people here were more ready to make fun of other posters than actually discuss our first loss of the year

I see more posters telling people not to panic than actual panicking

the fact that carolina had no rushing game at all and still had a chance to win at the end, is awesome imo. past years, this would have been a blow out 42-0. The game was a grudge match between 2 division rivals. Was a good game, we didnt win but it was a good game to watch anyways.

I disagree. It was NOT a "good game". The defense played well, but the O-line was painful to watch. I don't consider a half-hearted effort from our o-line, poor play-calling and a lack of urgency a "good" thing by any measure.

I don't post here often, but I'm as big a Panther fan as anyone, and I think being an 'experienced' Panther fan makes 'doom and gloom reaction' a perfectly reasonable repsonse. In 17 years we've had exactly 4 winning seasons. I'm tired of losing. I know the past is not necessarily an indication of the future, but we have a tradition here. You can call it negativity or realism- your choice.

It's not negativity or realism - it's utterly foolish logic.

Tired of losing? OK. I'm with you there. I'm also tired of losing.

Doom & Gloom because we ran into a buzz saw of a motivated team in their field and we were not prepared for that level of intensity from them? Epic Fail.

Doom & Gloom because we were terrible in the past so we will surely be terrible in the future? More epic fail.

Doom & Gloom for any reason after one game? What the serious fug man.

Well we're not the Giants, Packers, or Saints*. Not even close. Even in defeat, their offenses atleast looked like they know how to play at an NFL level. Not to mention, we play New Orleans, New York, and at Atlanta (where we always struggle) the next three weeks. 0-4 is a serious possibility and 1-3 is very likely. Before the season started, I looked at our first four games assuming we'd be 2-2 or 3-1 with TB being the sure win. Well we lost that game and the next three don't look pretty either. I say we beat the Saints* and lose the other two. So no, those three teams aren't done yet and technically neither are we, but those teams are likely much more capable of bouncing back than we are. Luckily for us, we face two of those three in these upcoming weeks and we still control our own fate.

I hate to be such a negative Nancy but yesterday's game was really deflating as a fan.

I think your entire team felt the same as did the experts on ESPN. This bootleg play I ran like four dozen times seemed to work well. My inspiration for the play and our gameplan was a game of Tecmo I was playing before kickoff. I saw our entire playbook from last year on there!

I'm sorry, but this does not help especially considering the fact the Packers, Saints* and Giants have been much better than us the past 3 seasons. poo... in fact all 3 had a SB in the past 3 years about

Who cares if they've won a superbowl? Hasn't every team won a superbowl at least once in their franchise history? Saints** are all distracted and ... well... good luck with the Packers. I'll give Ron our coordinator's number, he used to coach* for the Giants. Might have a few tips.
