Week 5: Poised Russell Wilson has his best pro game

http://www.newsobser...l#storylink=rss (Career day for a struggling QB)

Week 4: Michael Turner returns to prominence for Falcons

http://www.ledger-en...prominence.html (RB bounces back to have career day)

Week 3: Former Pack RB Andre Brown excels against Panthers

http://www.newsobser...s-panthers.html (no name RB has a career day)

Week 2: Week 2 Fantasy Football Recap: NO Saints vs. Carolina Panthers

http://www.footballn...panthers/17240/ (Note career days for Sproles and Thomas despite the loss)

Week 1: Freeman, Bucs offense able to protect the ball

http://www2.tbo.com/...ball-ar-490255/ (while not a carrer day, it was an efficient day by Freeman and the offense, solid day for defense)

Anyone else notice a pattern here? No wonder this team lacks the killer instinct. Losing plus being embarrassed by mediocre teams/players (not counting ATL here) certainly cant help the psyche of the team. After a while, the self-fulfilling prophecy takes over. This is where I hold the coaches responsible. Instilling mental toughness to overcome adversity is lacking.

Week 7 will be,

"Romo has big game and gets Dallas back on track against lost Carolina team".

The Cowboys will be coming off a loss to the Ravens. They will be mad and ready to crush the embarrassingly bad Carolina Panthers.

The trend continues.

I hate to side with the pessimists but if recent history holds as it usually does for the Panthers, the Cowboys will get "back on track" against us.

At this point is this even a "trend"? I feel more like this is just "the way poo is".

We've been making mediocre players look like superstars for years now. I don't even question the outcome anymore when some unknown is coming to town, I just try to predict the adjectives in the headline.

I really did think Rivera was going to bring fire back to the panthers. Instead its same old crap from 4 years ago.
