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.

    • I don't feel like we're a sleeper team. We are just mercurial as a franchise- up, down, and in the middle. I really do not know what to expect this year. As it's been said, the O-line is a big question mark. Our interior is good, but the tackle spot is a mystery. I wasn't and am still not high on the Lil Kalil signing, and not because of the contract. He has declined every year since his rookie year. Am I suppose to believe that he has really been chronically injured this whole time and now that he is here with Ryan he is suppose to magically be healthy and perform? I'm not saying it isn't possible- I'm not saying he's def going to suck either. I just have no clue. I think it's a big time gamble from Gman. I hope it works out. And I desperately want to be proved wrong about it too. I hope he fills the hole that's been there since Gross left as a long term solution. And the other thing that worries me is the coaching staff. Everyone talks about Shula but I'm not high on RR. He took zero accountability in his post season presser- as apposed to Gman who acknowledged his mistakes. I've never really liked him- I'm really wondering if Riverboat was just fools gold. He just feels like Fox 2.0- don't think he can get us a Lombardi- which is sad because I feel like our roster can. Again, I hope I'm wrong about this. These two things plus our division- The NFCS will be a dogfight this year. 
    • Yeah we fell asleep..the offensive like ducked and the secondary ducked til Bradbury and the other kid stepped up.. but season was done.. need a healthy o-Lind this year and execute or these new weapons are pointless
