Totally agree with OP. We need some perspective as a fanbase. We're two plays away from being 3-2 instead of 1-4. If we prevent the bomb from Atlanta when they're pinned at the 1yd line we win that game, great win on the road... Cam doesn't one hop to wide open Hartsock we likely beat Seattle and head into the bye 3-2 on a two game W streak. Yes, I know that's not what happened, but two plays going the other way and everyone's mood is different and optimistic. We have a young team, a young coaching staff, and a second year QB. Sophomore slumps are nothing new, Cam has the talent to win as well as the rest of this team. We just need a couple bounces and we will get them. Cheer up and realize we are heading in the right direction, it's not a total loss just because your expectations weren't met.

this is true, but the fans aren't helping much. we've got a whole lot of limp dick whiny bitches for fans and too many PSL owners who i think get a kick out of getting their tickets into the hands of non-panther fans.

i've got to say, though, we don't exactly have the glorious history or present to give reason for that to be any different.

the highlight of the franchises history is almost winning the superbowl one year about a decade ago.

this will change, but it needs to happen soon.


There were lots of callers bitching about our fans yesterday implying that the mediocre fan base is rubbing off on the players. I don't buy it. Until we get some history behind us mediocre franchise means mediocre fans.

That isn't true in a place like Cleveland where the NFL has 4 generations of fans

We do have way too many opposing fans in our house on a weekly basis. I would never sell my tix to the enemy.

And the panthers call themselves an NFL franchise? Until they stop embarrassing themselves every week perhaps they should be thankful they have any fans left in the first place.


Arguably, the only real embarrassment has been the Giants game. We had an opportunity to win in all the others, but fail short. That's really not uncommon with a team and coaching staff as young as the Panthers. We are going through growing pains, it's as simple as that.

The fans are just, well being fans. There's no guideline on how to be one and to parallel people's attitudes as fans to how a team performs is nonsense. You're on a message board not a "true fan" town hall meeting...people need to get over this stupid fan v. fan crap blabbering about how they know how to be a true fan or whatever....and the idea that the attitude of what we call a fan base is causing the team to underperform is bs bottom line. Project, predict, theorize, discuss...but stop bitching at your own fanbase

i think the "meh"ness of the fans and players feed on each other.

both parties are the problem. we don't push much because they haven't delivered. they haven't delivered much because we aren't pushing enough. it's cyclical.

I actually think our fanbase's willingness to criticize the team as a sign of maturity.

How many seasons have giants fans had the torches and pitchforks outside of tom coughlin's house? Almost all of them.

I remember the days when people were mostly just happy to have a team around here. Sign chuck smith? Good idea! Sean Gilbert? Seems sketchy but I trust this team! Biakabutuka is still with this team? I'm sure he'll stop getting less than three yards per carry and won't get hurt this time.

Glad those days are over.

I dont believe we need to clean house, Rivera and Chud do have me severly frustrated though. We need to cut out all the gimmicky cute finese poo and go back to pro sytle smash mouth keep pounding football. The coach problems are common sense....that is the most dissapointing thing.

This season is over, but the team can at least make is respectable and continue to grow

#1 thing this team needs to learn is how to close a game properly.

We deserve better? no they deserve better.....better fans.........my bro in law was right and thats said, he said we have the most fairweather fans in the NFL and look outside its raining so you guys should cry about it.


No, we deserve better. We pay their salaries- not the other way around. You define a fan as someone having blind loyalty. Some of us define a fan as a critical supporter who has a right to be angry/vocal when their team is not up to snuff- and hasn't been for a LONG time. You fans calling everyone crybabies are the crybabies. You can't handle ANY (justified) criticism of such an obviously "perfect" team. LOL!

O doesnt execute, THE SAME PLAYS: "fire CHUD, we suck, trade Cam"


We shouldn't be running all of THE SAME PLAYS. Chud has proven an inability to adapt to defenses that have adapted to him!

Every fanbase does the same thing. Browse their forums after a loss.

I'm tired of having circle jerks on the huddle about better times and the future.

You play football to win, not to suck ass every other week.

I've been loyal and will continue to be loyal to the team, this staff on the other hand..
