We very much have the players to win. Were one of the youngest groups in the NFL, if you don't have the right coaches in place to help the young college players develop and adapt to the speed of the game, then you have the 2012 Carolina Panthers. Two LATE ROUND ROOKIES (Norman and Thomas) did a VERY good job containing Dez Bryant and Marshall. It was when the coaches decided to switch up the defensive scheme that had been successful (tight coverage, high pressure) that the Bears started to cut us up. We Just need one more good safety, and a #2 or future #1 WR even though Lafell looks great.

If we didn't have the players to win, we would be getting blown out most weeks. We have been in every game but one. The Dline is playing very well, the linebacking corps is solid. The oline is up and down, but has some young players. We may need to tweek things in a few areas (receivers and secondary), but if your players are good enough to go into the 4th qtr with a close game week in and week out, then your team is good enough to win. They just need to figure out a way to limit the 4th qtr mistakes.

this team could be 4-3 or 5-2 if "a" player would have made "a" play at a crucial time in the game.
and the plays were there to be made.
as bad as some of you say the coaching is.........we've been in all but the NYG game.
I'm not ready to fire RR or McD yet............ Chud is another story

Im gonna have to argue that if we had the players we would be winning these games. When you have a lack of talent it magnifies coaching mistakes. If we had the playmakers to make instinctual plays instead of always needing to coach these guys up the coaches would be in a better position to call more aggressively.

You guys overrate the poo out of defense that has no signature wins and still has not proven it can protect leads late. You're settling just so you can act like our defense is carrying us.

The NFL doesn't work like Madden does, sorry. Coaching is everything. Especially when it comes down to young players. Offensively, we are CALLING THE WRONG PLAYS. It wouldn't matter if you had Rogers, McCoy, Percy Harvin, and Victor Cruz out there, they wouldn't succeed under our coaching/calling.

Honestly, I don't think that the team is built for the way that Chud wants to run his O.
He is trying to run a version of the Coryell offense, but without some of the player to do so.
Chud is guilty of abandoning the run, but is it effective even before he looks the other way.
Are our players committed enough to know the playbook inside and out? And if they are, do we have to talent to make it all "click"? I personally think that we are just devoid of talent right now, and are overpaying guys that we shouldn't be.
We need DL and OL like you wouldn't believe, and a WR that can run this system.

So every game has to be a close down to the wire type victory? Its OK to blow teams out and win handily. Unfortunately in Carolina, "coming close" is almost as good as a win. There was a time when Carolina occasionally beat teams down, could win games before 2 minutes in the 4th, and had a defense that could close out games.We havent seen that very much if at all in the Rivera Era. This team cant BEAT anybody, and relies on attempting to squeek out games every week. You guys overrate the poo out of defense that has no signature wins and still has not proven it can protect leads late. You're settling just so you can act like our defense is carrying us.

Someone needs to step up and make a play......at "crunch" time.

Don't ever make the mistake of comparing my opinions to the madden universe. I don't even play that poo. If you think this team has enough talent, then I've got bridge in LA I'd like to sell you. Your arguement is illogical. Not to say we don't need an adjustment to the coaching staff because we do, I'm just saying these coaches could do a little better if they had more talent to work with. Now please tell me some more about madden.
