Panthers defensive rank after week 15

25 posts in this topic

We're also playing against a lot of nobodies.

Good NFL teams lose to "nobodies" all the time.

The Chargers beat the Steelers in Pittsburgh last week.

The team with the best record in the league lost to the Panthers last week.

In the NFL, you'd better play well against the bad teams, or they will upset you.

This is cumulative season long stat right? Are you trying to say we have played nobodies all season??

Even though our records don't reflect it I think the NFC South is among the best divisions in the NFL. Maybe I am a homer, but getting a win against Tampa, ATL, or NO is an achievement and none are a gimme.

Then throw in this brutal non-divisional games,

SEA, Den, Dallas, NYG, Redskins, Chicago.

Looking at our schedule we only have played maybe three bad teams. KC (how the fug did we lose to those ass clowns), Philly, and San Diego. We have one more scrubby team left, OAK.

So 12 of our 16 games were against what I would consider quality opponents.

Now compare that to the Colts 9 wins

GB- good win, good team, but at home, after BYE

Minny- quality win

Cleveland- terrible

Tennessee x 2- terrible

Miami- terrible

Jacksonville- terrible

Buffalo- terrible

Detroit- not a good team this year

Not to mention they have losses to terrible teams like the Jets and the Jags.

They also have another game with KC on their schedule.

I am not faulting the Cotls they have to play the teams that are scheduled, but hotdamn who do you have to give a hand job to to get a schedule like that.

Wow!!! I don't know what's different or been different for the past couple of weeks, but we've played much better in all phases of the game, without certain starters. Things to make you go hmmmmm.

year 1 top 10 offense

year 2 top 10 defense

Has to be a year 3 right?

Having to purge the old with the new..but new GMs just do not usually keep incumbent coaches with moderate success and definitely not with 2 losing season. Not fair but a reality.

Top 10 special teams next year yeah buddy!!!!!

I swear we should just worry about both o and d sucking next year because it's always the side we worry about in the offseason that shows up next season.
