Again, not being cynical, just realistic, but What have you seen in this team that has given you any degree of hope that they will get better. Blind Optimism doesnt work.

I believe we all thought once we got Cam, it would be 3 years before the team was relevant. Now, we just need to patiently wait thru this year. I do want to see more progression than regression though.

@ the beginning of last year most of us accepted the notion that Cam was somewhat of a developmental project, he surprised us all and now we think he sucks because he isn't in the running for league MVP.

I think it's more realistic to realize that it's too early in this process to draw any conclusions.

Was it realistic to assume that a 6-10 team in a tough division with a 2nd year QB could suddenly transform into a SB contender?

NEWS FLASH: We're not going to win the SB this year, welcome back to reality!

Don't think anyone expected a great team this year. What we did expect was a team that would be, at the very least, better than the team fielded last season. This team is not better and hasn't shown us any signs of getting better. Very disappointing considering all of the talent on the roster.

I disagree. I am very pessemistic when it coems to this team, and I pray for the day I am wrong. I can only hope for the day people can call me wrong.

Pessmestic people of the panthers are humiliated every Sunday by being right. No need to point them out.

Also, optimisim is only harder for certain teams...for good reason.

I am sorry but I keep hearing this 4 year building project and its BS IMO. Why do other teams need less time and how do you rebuild with a full cap? When you give out contracts and lock up players like stewy, beason and dwill and then get a franchise qb, how is that a project? I don't think we are a project at all...

also when we were 2-14 everyone was saying we were not a 2-14 team, maybe I am the only one that still believed that, contributing to my pessemestic outlook

I don't have any problem with what Ryan Kalil did, I would hope this is the team's goal each year no matter how realistic it is.

Should we wait until we've lost at least 10 games before we draw this conclusion?

They had arguably the best team in the league up against the ropes until the last seconds of the game.

The defense was able to hold the leading rusher in the league at the time to 85 yards

Our rookie first round draft pick is showing he can be an effective MLB

We found a great prospect in Frank Alexander

We still have Cam Newton who is a dynamic player when he's on top of his game.

Our rookie LG is improving

Thomas Davis has stayed healthy

It's bad, but it's not the end of the world. They will not be a contender this year, it does not mean they can't improve over the course of the season.
