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.
