Panthers center Ryan Kalil bought a newspaper ad promising a Super Bowl run. His coach bought a box of T-shirts supporting Kalil's pledge in the Charlotte Observer.

Panthers' players have been wearing shirts with a Panthers' logo on the front and the message, “I have Ryan Kalil's back” on the back.

They were placed in players' lockers last week at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., where the Panthers practiced for four days before their Week 1 loss at Tampa Bay. Kalil said he appreciated Ron Rivera's gesture.

“Coach had them there. I believe it when he says that,” Kalil said Thursday. “We've just got to make sure we've got his back, and get done what we've got to get done.”

Before the Panthers began training camp in July, Kalil bought a full-page ad in the Observer that he called a rallying cry for the fans. He wrote about ending the season in New Orleans with a “sterling silver victory.”

Offensive lineman Garry Williams thought the ad – and shirts – were great.

“We all wear it with pride because that's what we believe. We all have his back. The statement he made in the paper shows true leadership. I've had his back since day one, and I still do,” Williams said.

“You see a lot of guys wearing it around here – not just a T-shirt to have one, but because they believe in what's on the back.”

The less the media keeps bringing up Kalil's dumb prediction the better. I know he was trying to generate excitement within the fan base, but enough already.

Less talking and posturing, more winning. They can wear whatever shirt they want but it won't win us games.

Since the beginning of this new regime, our team tries so very hard at looking/talking like they're doing the right things. I'm not dissing them but they need to start playing like they talk. I've still got high hopes for some steady and strong improvement this season despite the dud of a first game.

I really hope we rip the Saints* a new one

prediction wasn't dumb and the team doesn't need to be backing off of it after one loss.

if they don't believe they can do it they never will do it.

i swear this fanbase lacks balls. i'm just glad the team doesn't. enough with the short sighted goals.

man this fanbase has a lot of pansies in it.

team gets to feeling confident in what they are building and what they can do together and the fans go "meh, think smaller. don't open your mouth. no need to set yourself up for embarrassment." the only thing is it's the fans that are embarrassing telling the players they don't need to be setting their goals that high or don't need to be vocalizing them.
