The Panthers players and the head coach make millions.

We don't.

We pay hundreds to thousands to watch them.

It's up to us to decide how we spend our sundays and react to this team as they get paid regardless.

Do I feel sorry for the Panthers, no, I don't. Some teams and players and coaches rise in the moment, some shrink.

This team shrunk. They almost always do.

If I feel sorry for anyone, it's Steve Smith. What little heart this team has, is in him.

Until the cast changes, it will take something monstrous, or a team captain(s), or someone with play on the field to inspire to change where this team is headed.

I guess after 16 years of it, and 4 coaches, I'm tired. I don't have time or money to stick around for the 5th.

We need a victory badly in the next couple weeks, either Seattle or Atlanta, hopefully both. If we're 2-3 going into the bye week, the season is still within reach. If we're 3-2, we'll be right there in the hunt. If we have two weeks to stew over a 1-4 record though, I think that might be devastating for this team mentally.

It really must be a miserable existence to waste energy hating Marty Hurney in week 3 of the regular season.

Try 3 years.

Just trying to open other fan's eyes here.

It's more of a game to me, I don't even get upset anymore when we get killed. Used to bother me, now I just laugh it off.

I'm thinking Cam has gotten the message and he plays lights out for the rest of the season. Maybe he will. Maybe he won't

On field, certain things can get fixed like

1. Rotating the defense much more than wtf we did yesterday. Have our DB's play to their strength which is being physical. And honestly, it might be time for Martin to get back on the field

2. Offensively, run more basic plays instead of the read option. Cam stop going for the big play and take what they give you. Spread the ball out more, line more 4-5 wr sets. Stop doing trick plays starting out, that doesn't set a good tone

The bandwagon is a bit roomier.

I must say, I kind of like it.

It ain't how you start, fellas. Its how you finish.

2-2 and back in the hunt in 9 days.

Go Panthers.

I still believe this team is capable of being a dominate team. I do think the offense needs to stop being cute and play regular football. It is good to use the gimmick plays to keep the defense honest and also to utilize Cam's unique abilities but please. Being cute is for the sandlot and flag football, not the NFL.

Rivera comes from an aggressive background. Last night was far from Aggressive. Last years excuse is not valid this year. Get after the GD QB and make things happen.

I cant believe how many people are going ape poo over getting beat by the Giants. They are the SB Champs and they whooped our ass. Tenn did it last year and no one got this upset. We are still rebuilding a team and if anyone thought we were SB bound then they really did fool themselves. Got to grow as a team first.
