Yeah, I said it in another post. Dont make KC look like an easy win in KC. I was going to go to that game, but after watching us the last few weeks, I dont think I want too.

I will stick with my 6 win prediction. However, I do not see where we will pick up 5 more.

I said 12-4 before the season. . .the math still works, so 12-4.



Clearly your excellent taste in signatures is offset by your questionable abilities as a prognosticator.

schedule is a lot easier going forward.

just saw this from that site that used zod's pics without permission:

According to Football Outsiders' 2012 efficiency ratings the Carolina Panthers faced the 9th most difficult schedule in the NFL leading up to their bye week. With the exception of New Orleans (24th) and Tampa Bay (23rd), the teams they faced all ranked in the top-ten in efficiency. Opponent's records speak for themselves, but Seattle (10th), New York (8th), and Atlanta (4th) are legitimately four of the best teams in the NFL by DVOA.

Should it be solace for a 1-and-4 Panthers team to know they lost against three really good teams? No. To do that would be to accept mediocrity, yet the good news is that it gets a whole lot easier from here.

In their remaining eleven games the team's schedule drops in difficulty considerably, down to 19th in the league. Their next five have the Panthers facing Dallas (19th), Chicago (3rd), Washington (20th), Denver (9th), and Tampa Bay. The Chicago game can safely be penciled in as a loss, but those other four games are all potentially winnable contests for Carolina. 2012's back-end gets even better, featuring Kansas City (30th), Oakland (29th), and New Orleans again.

nothing i would come close to calling guaranteed wins, but they should come easier...or be harder to lose.

i think we can win most of our home games, maybe 4 out of 5 of them. the away games....i could see us winning 2 or 3 of them.

we can still come out with a winning record but that seattle game really shook my confidence in our ability to do it.

still....i think the team comes out of the bye week with a better focus and more able to pull off the wins. totally going on faith there. they haven't done anything to justify that.

10-6

We lose to the Iggles and Broncos, but no one else. If you look at our average offensive production since the start of the Rivera/Neeton regime, our week 1, 3 and 5 performances gave all been on the left side of the bell curve, so to speak. Given that, we're due for some above average, explosive offensive outings.

With the way the D is playing, I really don't think 10-6 and playoffs is out of reach. Remember, as long as we've got Cam, anything is possible.

agreed. it all depends on him and what's going on in his head. if he feels like a conqueror, the team will follow suit and they'll act like it. if he falls into/stays in his emo slump...we're looking at a losing record like we are now.

if cam is feeling on top of the world, the best thing coaching staff can do is not get in the way and keep the defense from losing games and giving away leads.

We win 2 more game. If were lucky we may pull one out against TB but losing Kalil is going to hurt bad...

Exactly. Our fates hinge upon Cam's confidence. I could tell from Cam's press conference last Wednesday that we were going to lose the Seahawks game. He was down, doubtful and mopey. Miles apart from his presser the Wednesday before the Falcons game, one we lost but should have won. I challenge everyone to watch those two pressers to see the difference. It's like Cam speaks in a whole different voice when he's confident.
