One week, we're beating the Saints. Heading for the top of the division, league, etc.

Cam Newton is the perfect player. He's the MVP. He's ours. He's ours forever. He'll be here forever. Racking up swag, MVP's, Lombardi's.

Steve Smith tells us how "Things are different 'here' now".

Chud seems brilliant.

A week later everything is the opposite. Steve Smith is a Prick. Cam newton is leaving town when his rookie deal expires. He's a cancer. The local paper pokes fun at him. The coaching staff is on the verge of losing the team.

I mean I swear I wish I didn't love the NFL sometimes. It honestly makes me kind of hate it when things are going like this. People are rough on baseball, but I follow it day in, day out.... it's not like this with players, teams, managers. They get more equity and buy a lot more time when they do well..... not so much hate and vitriol flying around.

It's not just Carolina. It's the NFL. Happens in every city, every fan base. One loss and Cowboy fans are wanting to hang Romo. One loss and Pats fans are saying Brady has lost it. One loss and it's time to fire whoever is coaching that dumpster fire in Cleveland.

Anyone ever get tired of the damn roller coaster of this sport?

Fewer games magnifies their importance.

I don't mean to be a baby. I'm actually watching old NFL Primetime Highlights on YouTube

http://www.youtube.c...1/videos?view=0

Tell me THOSE DON'T BRING BACK MEMORIES!!!!!

And I think back to when I was a kid. God the nfl was fun. All the over coverage brought on by twitter and everything else just kind of ruins the damn game. I miss NFL Primetime. I miss when QB's weren't judged just by their last week.

We're talking about running a record setting QB out of town.... he is 23. What the fug is the football world coming to? Hate it.

I hear ya, mayne.
You can get off the roller coaster if you want to, though. You could get off the message boards and stop listening to sports talk radio and watching ESPN/NFLN. Then, your happiness or misery doesn't last much longer than a few hours post game.

Exactly. You're comparing apples to oranges here in the OP. baseball has 182 games. Football has 16

I do understand what you're saying, but you can't do what you just did. You'll just end up getting more frustrated. The best way to get over last week is to look forward to the next week. It's early and we still have hope. Until that's completely gone and it's a mathematical uncertainty I will continue to believe that we are going to the playoffs... Where anything can and will happen

consistently winning a majority of games helps mollify the losses a little.

sucking ass as a franchise with no hope mollifies nearly all the losses.

having a franchise QB and losing a majority of games anyway is heartbreaking and very difficult to mollify.

People were stupid to get so excited over beating the Saints. They have played absolutely terrible this year, but were still in the game.

Anyone miss the simplicity of the late 90's early 2000s?

The problem is, when you folks win, you start dusting off your mantal for the SB trophy. When you lose, you want to fire everyone and the attitude of "everything is your QB fault" gets ampted up three times more than nornal..

That level of extreme happiness and disappointment is disturbing...IMO.

You're so right...The fact that the Saint is 0-3 doesn't making that win look so good now. But it's good that the team did win thou.
